There are two awesome things to tell you about today and one not so awesome thing. What do you want to hear first? The not so awesome thing? *sigh* Okay. I didn't do very well with my word count until yesterday. But I'm on a roll and working hard now. I got just over a thousand words. Woohoo! (In a subdued sort of voice.) (I changed the name of my heroine, though, so I have to go back and make sure I got all the old names out of the manuscript. Harder than you think!)
The first awesome thing is a book cover contest! There are some awesome covers up for an IndieRevAward (yes my cover is one) but you should totally go and check out all the covers and vote for your favorite Winners get cash prizes, so yay! Click here to see the covers and scroll all the way down to cast your vote.
The second awesome thing is that my friend, Julie Spencer, is compiling a collection of stories and recipes and is asking for submissions of comforting times where food has positively affected your life and/or the lives of the ones you love. For example: when someone has a baby, we show up with food. If someone passes away, we show up with food. If we're getting together for a celebration (holiday, wedding, graduation, etc.) it always involves food! In so many ways, we speak love with food! The stories will be compiled in a similar fashion as one of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books (no pun intended, it's just that type of book). It will be positive and uplifting, maybe a few tears here and there but in a good way. You can click here for more details. Doesn't that sound like such a great thing!
How did you do on your word count this week?
