No Wednesday Reads, but My Sunny Vampire is FREE

I would LOVE to say I finished my current reading project—because that book is, like, SUPER good—but I’m behaving and concentrating on my writing instead, so no books to report this week.

I noticed on Monday that the digital version of My Sunny Vampire is FREE on Amazon, B&N, and Kobo, so if you don’t have a copy yet, now would be a good time to get it because it won’t be any cheaper (duh!). Links are located on the book tab above.

I didn’t know MSV was going to be free and I don’t know how long the sale will last. The book is currently ranked in the 50s (on Amazon) for free downloads in the paranormal romance category. Not too shabby, I guess. I hope it generates sales for Bite Me (or even more reviews for MSV—sadly, it lacks many of those), but only time will tell.

Out of all the non-writing projects I had planned for Monday, I completed all but decorating the Christmas tree. It’s assembled, so I’m not a total slouch. And I would decorate it today except our old couch will be removed (finally—yay) and I won’t be able to put the chairs in the family room by myself (yeah, I go to the gym, but I’m not THAT strong). So, it’s best to leave the tree bare for now. Less chance of breaking an ornament. Looks like I’ll be decorating tomorrow.

In the meantime, I’m writing on the breakfast table. Something I don’t normally do. If I end up being more productive there, I might have to re-think my writing process.

Yesterday I managed to finally add some words to Ghostly Interlude. I’d been nervous getting back to it since I hadn’t touched it in a month. Nervous for no reason, it seemed. It felt good to write. Hope to get even more words added today. I’ve decided to kind of skim over the difficult scenes and write on. And when I say difficult, I mean I have a slight IDEA of what the scene should entail, but I’m still trying to figure out my character’s back story, so until I get a firm grasp on that, the scene is only a note. Hopefully, I don’t get myself into a mess doing this, but it’s better than staring at a blank page. Plus, I want to write. Writing always helps me figure out my characters, especially when they’re talking on the page.

So… How’s your week going so far? Good, I hope!

I'm impressed that you're getting actual writing done. I'm totally bogged down with my annual Christmas letter and cards.

Loved this post, Stacy. Sounds like things are moving along and FREE, holy cow.

We bought one of your books with the tablet but haven't been able to access it yet because they say we have two accounts.

Linda - Mailed my cards on Monday. Nice to get THOSE out of the way.

Ivy - My mother has yet to figure out how to download a book to her tablet using wifi, so she has to go to B&N and do it, but the store is 40 miles away and she hadn't been there in awhile. I sent her a paperback! :)

The Happy Whisk said...

Sorry she's having problems but wonderful that you sent her the paperback.

We are showing two different accounts on our Amazon because one year Tim opened a second one to get my xmas gifts. Now, we have to delete one account but first, use up all the free money that's stashed there.

Anyway, looks like we added your book to the older account and it's the newer account that's on the tablet. Fun fun.

Sounds busy, but confortably so. Hope it all looks fabulous when finished.

Sometimes you have to step away fro, your work, then come back with a fresh mind. And don't let Christmas get in the way of writing. We celebrate to the hilt, but I still find lots of time to write with Christmas carols in the background.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Stephen - Christmas never gets in the way. Heck, I typically write MORE during December. Usually because I'm toward the end of a project and I want it finished before the New Year! :)

Donna - Chairs look good! :)

Michael Seese said...

We haven't gotten our tree, nor ordered the cards. But, the kids' homework got done. I call that a victory.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Michael - Finished homework is always a good thing! :)
