Gaby’s Books & Muchness – Weekly Update – Volume 26_07292018

Hello hello everyone!!! Running a little late tonight, but here comes another weekly update!!!

I continue to putter along on my works in progress. As I noted last week, I’ve rearranged my schedule a bit now, spreading things out and leaving myself more time for other projects and such. I’m looking forward to starting on some new projects soon, including a return to playing with some werewolves (not MY werewolves, though… Vincent and Sam are on vacay for the mo… but I can guarantee they will be back)… I’ve got another historical fantasy on the horizon, too… Something truly unique that I think you guys are going to LOVE… AND an adaptation of a partial script that I started ages ago… Whew!!! Busy busy!!!

This Wednesday, Live Writes at the Bistro returns with a special event… Day & Dark Comics *otherwise known as Jonathan Harvey and Joleene Naylor) will be co-hosting the event, bringing their humor and artistry, and giving the most-liked story the chance to be worked into a chapter of THE TERRIBLE TURTLE CONSPIRACY online comic PLUS some excellent blog promotion from the fabulous Leah Negron. Four pairs of writers… four amazing stories… One incredible night… Hope to see you all there!!!

No other major events this week, but I will be spending the evening in the SLP Partners & Followers group Thursday, as always, and I think you will all dig the theme this week… One of my favorite films (& books) growing up… that’s the only clue you get… except this… Make sure your SODAPOP is chilled, and don’t DALLY… *winks*

See you back here next Sunday for weekly update… Hope you have a wonderful week!!! Peace, Love & Muchness to all!!!

Gaby’s Books & Muchness – Weekly Update – Volume 25_07222018

 Hello everybody! Welcome back to Weekly Update!!! Lots to cover, so let’s get started…

First off, there’s been some updates to my writing and publication schedule. Writing two mysteries at once has been quite an undertaking, and I’m slowing a bit to make sure that the stories aren’t thrown together. RAZOR’S EDGE, which is already complete, will be coming out at the end of September, but I’ve decided to spread out the releases a bit and not bombard you with Kate Gardener during the last few months of the year. So, RAZOR’S EDGE will remain on schedule; NIGHT MOVES will now be coming out in December; and the remaining two in progress, SACRED GEOMETRY and THE LONG GAME, will be coming out in the first half of 2019. This gives me time to not only make the stories the best they can be, but also continue to work on the other stories I have in the wings…

I’m currently doing some updates for my website, including adding in some pages and information, and including collected reviews with each book. So now, when you visit the page, you can check out what people have to say about them.

Coming up August 1st will be the return of LIVE WRITES @ THE BISTRO, and we have something super special going on! Joleene Naylor and Jonathan Harvey, of Day and Dark Comics, will providing an original image for us to write to, and the write with the most likes will become part of a future chapter of THE TERRIBLE TURTLE CONSPIRACY, the original online comic from Day and Dark Comics. We’re still looking for writers, so if you’re interested PM me and will get you in there. You do not want to miss this!!!

Tomorrow, we are hosting RapidFire here in Muchland at 10PM EST. The fabulous Aleisha Maree and Amber Naralim will be joining us, so be there with bells on ‘cause these ladies rock hard!!!

And that is a wrap… I am off to finish up some more website maintenance, and begin exploring some video creation… Stay tuned!!!

Until next week, Peace, Love & Muchness to you all!!!

Hello everyone! It’s that time again… Weekly Update!!!

It’s been a quiet week, activity-wise. I’ve spent a lot of my time writing, working on the two mysteries. I had to revise my schedule a little bit to keep myself going, but I’ve reached a total of just over 20k words between the two. I’m still optimistic that I’ll reach my goal to have both done by the end of the month… we shall see…

Events this coming week will be few again… because of my writing goals, I haven’t taken on a lot… However, a few fun things are planned for the end of the week. Thursday is my day in the SLP Partners & Followers group… last Thursday had a “Clueless” movie theme, so you never know what Thursday will bring… Be sure to stop by.

Then Friday night will be the first monthly Party of Partners in the group… all the SLP Partners will be stopping in to hang, show off new goodies, and have fun. Don’t miss it!!!

Finally, on Saturday I’ll be guesting at a RapidFire in the afternoon… 3PM EST, I believe… More on that as the week progresses…

I’ll be getting things set up for the next Live Writes @ the Bistro event soon… We took July off because of the holiday, but we’re coming back in August, and it will be a very special event… stay tuned for more on that as well.

Okay, my WIPs are calling my name… I’ll see you back here next Sunday for more weekly update. Until then, Peace, Love & Muchness to all!!!

Greetings and salutations, my peeps!!! Welcome back to Weekly Update… Let’s dive in!!!

Making pretty good progress on my Camp NaNo writing schedule… I’m about a third of the way through one book, and two chapters in to the other… close to 14,000 words logged so far, which is pretty close to on-schedule. I’m hoping to make a huge dent this week in both books, and have one or both half done by next Saturday… Eek!!!

Last Wednesday was a holiday, so this Bistro Wednesday the Archetype posts will be back. We’re featuring Heroine Archetypes now, and this Wednesday will be one of my favorites (because it’s more than a little bit me *winks*)… THE SPUNKY KID… Some very beloved female characters fall into this archetype, so be sure you don’t miss this installment.

Also, I’ve uploaded a bunch of informational graphics that I had, and a bunch that our fellow Bistro member Valerie Roeseler sent me, into the FILES area of THE WRITERS’ BISTRO, along with a transcript of my posts from the Bistro Blurb Workshop… Lots of great tips, templates, and information in there, so be sure to check them out.

I have set up my YouTube channel, and I’ll be adding my book trailers and slideshow videos in there soon, as well as putting together book playlists and adding some of my favorite writing inspiration music. Stay tuned for more on that!

Alright, my peeps, back to the writing cave I go!!! I will see you all back here next week for another installment of Weekly Update… Until then, Peace, Love & Muchness to all!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

Greetings to you all, fellow Muchlanders!!! Welcome back to Weekly Update!!!

Big news this week… First of all, THE COLD ONES and WOLFBORN are both in the running for Top Fantasy honors in the Lex Infinitum PR Mid-Year Awards. The Top 10 are in the running now, and I certainly need you votes!!! You can vote for more than one selection, so please head over and vote for me and any of your other favorites in the running. I’d love to finish well, maybe in the top 5, or even 3, and you can help make that happen. As of this moment, I’m only a handful of votes from the lead. Voting continues until July 4th, so head over an vote if you can!

Other big news… In addition to being a proud SLP Partner Author, I am also going to be working with The Double DD Group! I was invited to join, and look forward to working with Fredd Carroll, Rachel Hill, Keesha Robles, as well as my fellow authors there, as I keep moving forward.

No major events this week. I’m starting another session of Camp NaNoWriMo, and hope to have two, yes TWO, mysteries finished by the end of the month. I’m 7000+ words into the first one already, so hopeful it will move along on schedule. Wish me luck!!!

Alright, Muchlanders, that’s all for tonight! See you back here next Sunday for another update. Until then, remember Kindness is Free… Peace, Love and Muchness to all!!!
