Looking Back, Looking Ahead

I was going to write a long post about all the things that happened this year, but I was having trouble finding a way to make it as interesting and touching as it *felt* to me, inside my head.  So here, in bullet form, are the high points of my 2013 writing life (in no particular order):

  • After a gap of several years, I published a new Jane Madison novel, Single Witch’s Survival Guide [Buy now!]  I continue to love, love, love Jane and David and the world of Magical Washington!
  • I saw the publication of Darkbeast Rebellion [Amazon | B & N | Indiebound], under my pen name, Morgan Keyes.
  • After several years of participating on the group blog, Magical Words, I sadly bid farewell to the site in its current incarnation.  I look forward to seeing how the site owners change MW, and I hope to participate in its future life!
  • I joined Book View Cafe, where I get to interact with amazing authors every day, as we work cooperatively to bring you the best ebooks possible!
  • I joined Twitter.  Finally.  (Please, please, please follow me.  It’s lonely in my corner of the Twitterverse!)
  • I reissued the As You Wish Series, with all new names and all new covers, better reflecting the feel of the series (Act One Wish One [Buy now!], Wishing in the Wings [Buy now!], and Wish Upon a Star [Buy now!]

And here’s what I’m looking forward to in 2014:

  • The Diamond Brides series (nine short romance novels, featuring the players on the Raleigh Rockets baseball team and the women who love them).
  • At least two writers retreats with some of my favorite writer-type folks, enabling me to meet my tight deadlines on the Diamond Brides.
  • At least three Super Sekrit Projects, which may or may not come to fruition, but which are fun for me to play with in the interim.
  • A massive Contest and Book Giveaway in January — watch this site for tons of free prizes!

So?  How about you?  What do you see when you look back on 2013?  When you look ahead to 2014?

Psst! Wanna Hold a Book in Your Hands?

These days, it’s easy to think about books as a collection of pixels, read-able on just about every computer and e-reader on the market.  But I still read more than half my books in print.  And a lot of my readers ask for my books in print.  (Many have been out of print for a few years, and some have never been available in paper.)

And I’m an obliging author, if nothing else.  So, I’m pleased to announce that the entire Jane Madison Series is now back in print (along with the electronic editions that people have enjoyed for the past several years!)  Moreover, Fright Court and Capitol Magic: A Novella are available in print for the very first time!  To celebrate, I even have spiffy new updates on all the covers!

I’ll have additional sales links as more vendors come online, but for now, here are sales links for the books:

Linkety Link

I’ve been juggling a lot of balls the past few days — writing full steam ahead on CATCHING HELL (Book 2 of the Diamond Brides), preparing for an exciting announcement about the Jane Madison Series (full news next week!), dealing with a car that turned out *not* to have a brake problem, meeting friends for lunch and tea and whatnot, making my favorite cream of broccoli soup…  You get the idea :-)

So, here are a few links, instead of real content.  I’ll rectify that oversight in the near future, I promise :-)

Off to write new words, now!

Peripatetic Friday (With Two Book Giveaways!)

I decided to launch Labor Day weekend with a stroll about the Internet.  Today, you can find me in three places:

Magical Words (my usual Friday haunt), writing about what I’m writing about (and asking other writers to chime in with what they’re creating).  Come join us!

Magical Words is a website by writers for writers (and readers who want a behind-the-scenes peak at the process of writing.)  Regular posters include David B. Coe, John G. Hartness, Faith Hunter, and Misty Massey, with frequent guest posts from Lucienne Diver, Diana Pharaoh Francis, and Carrie Ryan.  The Magical Words crowd is friendly, so don’t hesitate to stop by!

Julie Kenner’s blog, writing about my life as a lawyer, and how it has influenced my life as a writer.  I’m giving away an electronic copy of Single Witch’s Survival Guide to on commenter, so come join in the fun!  (Also, I’ll be sharing some very exciting news about Julie and me, in the next few weeks…)

Romance Recipes, writing about, um, romance recipes.  Specifically, I give the recipe for the most popular item in the Cake Walk bakery — Almond Lust.  And I’m also giving away an electronic copy of Single Witch’s Survival Guide to one commenter, so be sure to comment over there!

I look forward to seeing you around the web!

Mindy, also looking forward to Labor Day weekend!

Thank You, Everyone!

Thank you, everyone, for spreading the word about SINGLE WITCH!

My debut self-published novel broke the top 5000 on Amazon yesterday, and it’s currently in the Top 100 for contemporary fantasy — both in regular books and in Kindle!  I would love to see those numbers continue today!

In other news, I returned home from my family visit yesterday.  Despite Delta once again mandating that I check my carry-on bag, when there was plenty of space in the overhead bins, they *didn’t* lose my suitcase, so this was a much better trip than my flight out!  It was good to visit family, but I’m a bit astonished at how a seven-year-old can wear one out.

This morning will be dedicated to unpacking (at first, I typed “punpacking” which would be an interesting form of a humor contest…), then to grocery shopping, then to working on the next writing project.  If it’s not one thing, it’s another!

Happy Wednesday!
