    Musical Monday and a round up of what’s doing in my writing life


    Summer Splash Blog HopI seriously can’t believe it is Monday again. I also can’t believe that I am participating in a thing called a Summer Splash Blog Hop (which I totally am, this coming weekend) because it’s cold here in Sydney now and really not at all summery. My brain is having serious difficulty processing.

    I’ll be giving away a $20 Amazon GC and some e-books during the hop so you really want to come back and enter.

    The hop, for those who haven’t participated in one before is where a group of authors get together and do a joint promotion where they host giveaways, promote their books and get the word out about great books. There are lots and lots of prizes up for grabs – some of these authors are very creative people – and even a Kindle Paperwhite.

    My advice is COME BACK 13 June.

    In other news I’m hoping my novella will be off to the editor in early July and then will be out as soon as possible after that. I’ve been messing around about doing a Box set of my first 3 books and I’m almost ready with that as well. I have the cover (I’ll show you next week).

    Oh yeah and I’m trying to master Scrivener which is a really cool software program for writers but apparently I am not really cool because I’m doing some basic stuff very wrong. (eg Why can’t I create a new Chapter that appears where I want it? Why? Why?)

    Anyway it’s musical Monday and so that calls for a song. My daughter has been practicing her clarinet today but I’ll spare you a concert.

    Instead because I seem to be eternally attached to my computer I’ll give you the song Electric Dreams, the theme song to the movie of the same name about a computer that is obsessed with it’s owner in a romantic way. Ah the 80’s.

    And I’m actually giving you two versions – movie soundtrack and a recent live version because I would have lost money and bet that no way would The Human League be able to fill a stadium with people happy to shout along to this! I thought I was the only tragic out there…just goes to show.
