Monday Mayhem – Magoo edition

Posted on Nov 24, 2014 by Margaret Ethridge   2 Comments | Posted in Blog

Greetings, my friends, and welcome to the home stretch. As we round the bend into the final week of November, there are tons of things happening. Big things, wow things, as well as little things and ‘do this now’ things.

It’s the final week of NaNoWriMo and as I type this I have just over 10k left to make my goal. As many of you know, I am a write by the seat of my pants girl, and though I always start with a loose outline, most of my stories veer off at some point. This one (Bossy Pants) has  pretty much been pretty much like taking a drive with Mr. Magoo.

I’m also in the midst of the first round of edits on Going Deep (Kensington-Lyrical – September 2015) and just returned the second round of revisions on Spring Chickens (Turquoise Morning Press – January 2015)

While I do all of that, I’m preparing for 2 more Maggie releases.

The first will be a boxed set of the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series. This will be all twelve novellas (including both Passionate Plume finalists-August Awakening and Daring Miss December) for the awesome introductory price of only $0.99! You can pre-order yours here:

Amazon ~ B&N ~ Kobo ~ Apple ~ All Romance ~ Smashwords ~ TMP Bookstore

On December 15th, I’ll be celebrating the first of my Kensington-Lyrical releases, Three Little Words.

December is shaping up to be a busy month as well. I’ll have two mostly finished, but really rough manuscripts (Full Court Press and Bossy Pants) to wrestle into shape.

I have to sit down and work on my 2015 business plan (Bet you didn’t know authors actually did those, did you?) and set my goals for the year.

I’m also planning to undertake a website overhaul…or two. You may have noticed that I’ve been mentioning my Maggie Wells work here more often, and talking about some of my Margaret books on Maggie’s blogs. I plan meld my websites and combine my blogs (if I can).

I’m taking on two board positions with my two Romance Writers of America chapters. In 2015, I’ll be President of the Diamond State Romance Authors, and Vice President of Passionate Ink RWA.

Oh, and Thanksgiving is Thursday.

And Christmas is just 30 days away.

So yeah…the holidays are here! What are your plans for wrapping up 2014?

    Oh my goodness, where do I even begin with you? lol. Prez AND Vice Prez? Will I have to make special appointments to talk to you? 😉 You have definitely got your hands full, but I think that’s how you work best. Busy people are the most successful, as the saying goes. I think 2015 is gonna be a banner year, my friend, and I will do anything I can to help make it so! Best of luck with your upcoming releases!

    As the year winds down, I hope to finish up the first draft of Nutcases, write a bunch of blog posts for my end-of-the-year tour, and get myself geared up to interact with my readers in my Online Mating adventures! I’m close to 20k on my WIP, something I’m insanely proud of. Now that I’ve reached that milestone, the sky’s the limit!! 🙂

    Happy Monday, and have a wonderful week!

    Hee, I remember Mr. Magoo — but aren’t you too young? Wow, how do you keep it all straight? I mean, you have A LOT going on! Sounds like you’ve had a very successful year. And I have complete confidence that another 10K will flow out of your talented fingertips with no problem! Looking forward to all of the new stories!
