Next week I'm participating in the Blogger Book Fair, which runs from Monday the 22nd through Friday the 26th.
The fair is the brain child of Kayla Curry, who puts in hours of work to get the event up and running. There are literally hundreds of authors participating in the BBF and many are hosting giveaways and other promotional activities throughout the week.
Next week I'll be interviewing authors Cathrina Constantine, Shah Wharton, Jeff W. Horton, and L.R. Wright here on my blog and in return they will be interviewing me on their sites. So please stop by and check us all out!

For this week's Celebrate the Small Things hop, hosted by Vikki at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author, I'm celebrating the fact that I got my own website up and running. I can't deny it made me kind of giddy to see my own domain name. I've been kind of quiet online this week because, in spite of the fact that weebly did "everything" for me, it still took me forever and a day to get the site to a point where I wasn't embarrassed to share it. I went round and round trying to get the hang of what was clearly supposed to be a very simple process. Simple for everyone but me, apparently.
I'm still playing with the site and will be adding to it but if you'd like to take a look at it, you can find me here at http://www.julieflanders.net/. :)
I also finished my latest (final?) round of editing and polishing my Ghosts of Aquinnah manuscript. I was thrilled to be able to get to the last page and beyond thrilled to be able to say that I still love the story. I also wrote a blurb for the story for my new site. So it was a productive week!
Finally, I'm celebrating that another week of summer is over. I know I'm in the minority, but I really don't like summer. I HATE the heat and humidity and I have such fair (some may say translucent) skin that sun is my nemesis and can burn me to a crisp in a matter of minutes. By this point in the summer, I've even tired of the long days when the sun doesn't set until after 9:00. So while I may regret saying this in the winter when it's dark and freezing and I'm trying to drive on ice, for now I am happy that we are one week closer to autumn, which is my favorite time of the year.
Happy Friday and Happy Weekend! :)
