Spring has Sprung

Hi Everyone:

Blog time again. What shall we chat about today?

We had a delightful taste of Spring for two days, tank tops, shorts, flip flops, and then a front moved through bringing cooler air, and hooded sweatshirts, sweat pants, sneakers, and socks. (UGH!). The front even brought thunderstorms in some locations.

I really believe that hooded sweatshirts were invented here on Cape Cod. They definitely are a wardrobe staple for both residents and tourists. I have at least 9 of them in my closet, some heavier than others, but there is nothing more comforting than slipping into one in the late afternoon on the beach, when you are slightly crisp from the sun and the breeze kicks up. They are our “blue blankies”. I have even slept in mine.

FYI – Spring, however fleeting, did arrive here.

Here is a view from my bedroom window. The lovely ornamental cherry tree is in full bloom. There are other signs, too. The Mini had her top down for an hour or so. YAHOO!

On the writing front? I am offering a second Sweepstakes Giveaway. This one for Something Sinister – Angels, Witches, and Spells, Oh, MY! It began last week and, runs until May 26th. As of this morning, we already have 355 entrants. Oh, MY indeed!

The last one was for a non-fiction book and had 287 entrants. All ten prizes were claimed.

This is one of my attempts at a marketing strategy. Seems to be working. I will keep you posted.

Here is a link for a Goodreads blog that I found very helpful if you are planning to publish your book in the near future.

What am I writing?

Actually, I am currently working on two books simultaneously.

Creating Crystal Grids is being updated and put into print. I have added more crystal description and more grids.

Something Bloody, the second in the series after Something Sinister, is in progress. Yes, you guessed it. Vampires! Not only vampires, but the most feared and notorious of them all! Count Vladimir von Alucard (not a misspelling, just a different arrangement of letters.) Can you guess?

Another thought: He was probably our first legendary serial killer! How gruesome!

Do I dare write this in YA (Young Adult) or for young children? Wait until he meets Grannie Goodwitch, and the rest of the characters that live in the Angelic Realm and the Fossilized Forest.

Ooops! Almost forgot: Here is the link for the sweepstake for Something Sinister.

Well, that’s all for now.

Happy Writing

Sharon
