Miscellaneous Monday: April Edition

All right, guys, I'm doing a little catch-up work. Here are a few reminders and a few fun things... :)

► In case you missed it, I'm having a pay-it-forward blogfest/ebook compilation the week of May 19th ("How I Found the Write Path"), and I'd love to have your help! Here are the details.

Side note: Thank you so much to those of you who have gotten me your letters early and/or spread the word! I really appreciate it.

►Something funny for your Monday:




► Two of my friends/beta readers/former pubmates had books go live this month—using covers I designed for them—as their first indie works! Be sure to check them out. I highly recommend their work. :D

(Click the covers to be taken to their Amazon page.)

► If I'm slow to answer this week, it's because I just adopted a shelter pup! I get to pick him up tomorrow, and I'm so excited. He's a Golden Retriever mix and only three months old. More photos to come!

"Save me, Carrie!"

Golden retrievers are great dogs!
Soon as the Challenge ends, I will get my piece to you.

Aww. What a cutie! This weekend I was at Storymakers and got to see so many writer buddies. So fun!

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

I had a nice weekend. But it's Monday and I'm stressing over how I'll get all my work done and more. I think the trick is to work, not stew.

Donna K. Weaver said...

Wow, what awesome covers!

I went to an amazing writing conference where both Orson Scott Card AND Brandon Sanderson were presenters.

Melissa said...

Get it to you ahead of time? Oy. Didn't know that. *types furiously*

Great covers! Both of them!

I'm gonna have to come to Ohio just to play with Tucker. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Oh, you absolutely don't have to! Tons of people are waiting for the week of May 19th. I just wanted to thank those writers first, before things get crazy. :)

Thank you! :D I think Tucker would like that!

Carrie Butler said...

Yay! :) No hurry, Alex. I know April was a HUGE undertaking!

Carrie Butler said...

I'm so jealous! From what I saw on my newsfeed this weekend, it must've been a blast. :D

Carrie Butler said...

True. Stewing never helps—though, eating stew does. Funny how things like that work... ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Donna! :D

Wow! I am beyond jealous of you Utahns!

Loni Townsend said...

Yoga pants = super powers. Gorgeous covers, and ADORABLE dog. <3 So cute!

Nick Wilford said...

Enjoy the pup! We've acquired four in the last year - a handful to say the least - but there's so much love.

I didn't even know Nancy and Lisa had new books! The covers look great!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Congrats on your new puppy. We rescued our puppy last year. I am so very happy to have her with what I've been going through. Hope yours is a sweetie too.

I finally got to see Muppets Most Wanted on Saturday and had a lot of fun. Sadly I caught another flu bug but I'm happy to say I have got another ongoing ghostwriting assignment on the weekend as well. Congrats on the puppy and those nice book covers.

Donna Hole said...

I had a slow relaxing weekend, thanks for asking. Now, its Monday . . .

"I'm not a normal person, and nobody's home . ." Yeah, I totally get that :)

This must be save a pound puppy month as well as A to Z Challenge. You're the second blogger to come to the rescue. Very sweet. You'll have to post pictures of his arrival home.

Catherine Stine said...

Nice cover designs, Carrie! And what fun to get a pup.

Chrys Fey said...

I found out about the ebook compilation through Denise Covey and PK Hrezo, and I am so excited to contribute to it! I'll be sending you an email soon. :)

Carrie Butler said...

They do have super powers! They're part of my favorite writing uniform. ;)

Thank you!

Carrie Butler said...

I'm impressed! I can hardly keep track of one. LOL

Thank you, Nick! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Hah! That's the part I related most to, as well. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Oh no! I hope you feel better. :(

Thank you. Best of luck on the ghostwriting assignment!!

Carrie Butler said...

Aww, I bet. I hope she continues to bring you comfort and joy in the years to come. (After I typed that, I realized it sounded like a Christmas carol—oops!)

Thank you, Natalie!

Carrie Butler said...

Oh, wow. It must be something in air!

You bet! I'll try to do that tomorrow. :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Catherine! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Oh, wonderful! We're so glad to have you on board, Chrys. :D
