A to Z Guest Post, Aberration Bloghop, and a Blog Break



I'm over at the Blogging from A to Z Challenge site today with a guest post about promoting a book through the A to Z Challenge. This is the first time I've ever been a guest on the site so I'm excited about it, and grateful for the opportunity. Thanks to Shannon at The Warrior Muse blog for setting this up for me! I was one of Shannon's Warrior Minions in April and had a great time in my first ever stint as a minion. Come visit me here! :)



Also, Lisa Regan's new book Aberration comes out on June 6, and she is hosting a bloghop to go along with the release. Visit her here to sign up and join the party. I know I will be putting Aberration on my Kindle the first day it is available because Lisa is a fantastic writer and Aberration promises to be another great read from her. Congratulations to Lisa!

Finally, this is my last post for the month as I am going to be going on vacation and also have a lot of writing and editing that I want to get done before June, so I am checking out of the blogosphere for a few weeks. Clancy and I, along with some other family members, will be spending a week on Martha's Vineyard for Clancy's first ever trip to the ocean, so I plan to have some travels to share when we return. Also, the picture above is of Aquinnah, which is on the Vineyard and is the setting for my WIP The Ghosts of Aquinnah, and I hope to get some inspiration from the setting and polish/complete that novel while we are on the trip. Fingers crossed, anyway. :)

I will see you all in June!
