Mixed-Media Wednesday, News, and TBR Thanksgiving

11-20-15 EJ Faux SpouseI’m free! I’m free! Five whole days away from the day job. Yeah, okay, I have to cook. And do copyedits on WILD MAN’S CURSE. And finish my Cajun pronunciation guide. But that’s fun stuff!

Speaking of fun stuff, there are two more chances to win stuff today. I hope you’ll hop over and give these guys some support and also maybe win 🙂

First, DJ is hosting a Thanksgiving pot-luck dinner over at The Book Nympho today (I think it goes live at 9 a.m. CST). DJ has invited Alex, Jake, Eugenie, Rene, Ken, and Jean Lafitte. They each bring a dish. Rand shows up. Project Runway’s Tim Gunn might be involved. 🙂 There’s also another chance to enter the $50 giveaway for the PIRATESHIP DOWN tour.

11-22-15 Acrylic GardenNext, I’m over at the Romance Magicians blog today, talking about blogging. This is the blog of my local (ish–about 100 miles away) RWA chapter, and there’s some discussion going on about whether we should continue the blog, what it needs to be, and what people want to see. I hope you’ll go over and weigh in, and enter for a chance to win a $10 Amazon (or B&N or Book Depo) gift card.

Are you in AUSTRALIA or know some Aussie readers? STORM FORCE is supposed to be the Kindle Daily Deal on Sunday, November 29. I’ll post a reminder on Sunday but because of the time difference, thought I’d give you a heads up. I’m not sure of the price, but I’m guessing about AUD$2.74, which is half price.

11-24-15 HeelsAre you in the UK or know some UK readers? REDEMPTION will be featured in Amazon’s Black Friday Week sale from Monday, November 30, through Friday, December 4. Not sure about the price yet but will post when I know.

And that’s about it for today. Here’s the week’s rather productive art production. I’m taking a class called MISS QUOTED, taught by the brilliant Australian artist Jane Davenport and U.S. lettering queen Joanne Sharpe, on drawing in ink and using watercolor to do sketchy backgrounds and writing. I like the technique but DEFINITELY need more practice.

11-23-15 StrudelOh, TBR giveaway! Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I won’t be blogging again until Sunday, how about…a BOX FULL o’ TBR books. At least five. Maybe more (depends on the box). Just tell me….what you’d bring to DJ’s pot luck dinner!

  1. I’d bring stained glass jello mold because it is really yummy and I’d like to Jean’s reaction! Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy your time off!

  2. hum part of me would love to bring trappist beer to see the guy fall drunk very quickly ( could learn some interesting info to use for blackmail if needed later) but i woul probably takes pity on DJ and bring something i cooked that wouldn’t be a dessert

    • Free days?! that’s so great for you!! yes you have things planned but hopefully it will be real days without work for dayjob and it’s already something to be grateful for^^

      take care!

  3. My signature dishes are bread pudding and pumpkin cheesecake pie! I have a feeling Jean is familiar with the first dish. 🙂

  4. After reading A Preternatural Thanksgiving, I think DJ would love some turkey. So I would bring a nice big roast turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Love the drawings!!!! Also enjoy your days off 🙂
    I’d bring something Irish to the table, maybe Bubble and Squeak (Bacon & Cabbage to all the non Irish 😉 ) or Bangers and Mash (Sausages & Potatoes) Or even Irish Stew!
