Welcome to the party!!!

Welcome to my blog party! Y'all have been quiet around here lately, so I figured it was time to do an official meet and greet. Whether you've been reading the blog for a while or this is your first visit, welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by.

What good would a party be without cupcakes and tea, though, right?

Well, there's not much I can do about the cupcake situation.

BUT I can help with the tea! So just sit back and join the party. Introduce yourself, and if you're a writer, tell us what you're working on. If you're a reader, tell us what you're reading, or your favorite book . And be sure to check back throughout the day to see what others have said about your stories!


One lucky participant will win this loot... a free copy of Nobody's Child by Austin Boyd, and assorted teas! To be eligible, all you have to do is leave a comment. Be sure to leave your e-mail address if we aren't already Facebook friends so I can contact you if you win!

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has to say!

    2. I'm not sure. LOL. I was writing it with Harlequin Heartwarming in mind, but it's way too short. Details, details...:)

    3. Maybe you could make it a novella! Throw some more cowboys in there, and you'll be set. ;)

  2. I love parties. I haven't been writing, other than blog posts. :) I have been reading some. But I have been crafting and cooking alot of new recipes! I just finished redoing a chair that I found on the side of the road. It turned out soooo cute!

    1. Sherrinda, I saw the picture of your chair on Facebook, and I was SO impressed! You could sell that kind of stuff. And hey, writing recipes still counts as writing in my book! :)

  3. How fun, Ash! I'm currently working on revising my novel about a mother and daughter who compete against each other in a national singing competition akin to American Idol. ;)

    1. Lindsay, I LOVE that idea! I thought about doing something similar with Dancing with the Stars... maybe someday! Can't wait to see how yours turns out!

  4. Ah, a party! I'm dropping by before I head to Panera. While I'm there I'll sip tea and work on rewrites of my contemporary romance novel set in Colorado. Deadline: May 1.

  5. I love your picture of the cakes!! Very festive and mouth watering. Right now, I'm working on some articles, but I need to get back to my novel. I'm hoping to go to ACFW this fall, so I have to make money by writing articles, but I also need to make sure my manuscript is ready by then. It's a family drama centering around a toddler with cancer. Hoping it's not as heavy as it sounds.

    1. Stephanie, that sounds really interesting. Article writing is a great idea for making money for the conference... builds up your portfolio in the process! And yes, don't you love that picture of the cakes? I found it on Pinterest. :)

  6. Fun looking cakes! Right now I am focusing on writing several book reviews I'm on deadline for and a bit of editing.

    1. Julia, I love that phrase-- "on a deadline!" :) That means what you're writing is actually getting put into print! Looking forward to seeing where your edits take you!

  7. I haven't been doing any fiction writing lately, but I can't wait to polish up my historical novel come August. My son has a speech disorder and I have spent the past year and a half blogging on our experience & working hard to help my baby find his voice. This August he starts preschool and I'll have more time to focus on my career. I've always got a book in my hand, but these days there's been too much nonfiction reading and productivity going on. The last fictional book I read was Nicholas Sparks' "The Rescue" at Christmas.

    1. Tori, thanks so much for stopping by and sharing about your son! One of my dear friends is a speech therapist, and it sounds like such a rewarding yet challenging job. I haven't read The Rescue. Was it good? I love Nicholas Sparks movies, but for some reason, never pick up his books. I need to!

  8. I used to be in a dark place with the apraxia, but now I give thanks every day that it was put in our lives. It has been life changing & has brought much gratitude & joy. I actually read The Rescue years ago and thought it was an okay book. But, my aunt stopped me in church one day and told me I needed to read Three Weeks with My Brother (Sparks' biography) and then follow it up with The Rescue. I found great inspiration in him because he has a son with a speech disorder and took an approach very similar to mine. The Rescue is a fictional story about much of the same, but the main character is a mother. I cried oodles in both of those books this go around. I loved the story of Sparks' life. He's really persevered through a lot of tragedy & has a strong faith in God. And, how can any writer not love his story? You write your first fictional book, send it out to agents & your first reply is from a new agent on the job who offers you a gigantic signing bonus! Then, you get all the other rejection letters. The best.

    1. I didn't know he was a Christian... that's cool! I'll have to put those books on my list. I love whenever a writer weaves in a personal passion... I think it makes a story so much more vibrant and interesting. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Hey, Ash...I'm fashionably late (hopefully).

    Currently writing: ancient historical mingling Europe after the fall of Troy with the time of Solomon.

    Currently reading: January Justice by Athol Dickson. It's lighter than some of his other stuff, and faster paced. I want to say it's a little bit like Artemis Fowl for grownups, but without the fantastical creatures, but that sort of minimizes the more mature aspects of the story.
