What is she doing now??
First off, enjoying some time with my daughters and my husband. I'm blessed. They keep me entertained, exasperated but feeling oh, so alive!
I'm having a blast posting the Bleeding Ink Author Spotlights, as one of the three Ink Babes. I encourage you to check out today's spotlight as well as the past spotlights. There's a new author spotlight every three days right through to September 5th. If you post a comment (even just a hello or word of encouragement) you have a chance to win a copy of the anthology, Bleeding Ink - A Collection of Dark Tales.
We Ink Babes are grinning deliciously from ear to ear about the reviews coming in at Smashwords about this collection. "...creepy and wonderfully dark." "A must read!"
On August 2nd, Tammy Crosby and I (2 of the 3 Ink Babes) did a internet-radio interview with Jay Faulkner, on Following the Nerd Radio all about Bleeding Ink. Broadcast live from Co. Down, Ireland, this was a so much fun for me personally, as those of you who know me understand how much I love the Irish people (as they are such an important part of my life here in Montreal), the idea that my feet have never touched Irish soil, yet my voice resonated in the cyber air above it, sent a thrill right through me, I'm sure I babbled like a nervous fool! LOL! A podcast of the interview should be posted sometime soon. I haven't heard it yet, but look forward to it.
I'm working on the last draft of my novel, Bound, which I plan to submit to my publishers, MuseItUp, in the fall. (where you'll find my short-stories, Deathly Quiet, and Leapling)
And then there's the big project I'm working on - Lisa Forget - In Concert. It's something I've been wanting to do for so long. I've taken the first steps by securing musicians, 2 guest artists and contacting the venue. I'm looking at late-October. Plans will be solidified by this time next week. I'll be sure to let you all know, here, and on other social networks.
Perhaps you might like to join me for what I promise will be a night filled with beautiful music.
Before I sign off, this would probably be a good time to mention that on September 15th, I will be inducted in the Pointe St-Charles Hall of Recognition for my involvement with the community. I'm absolutely delighted by this honour taking place at the YMCA Pointe St-Charles. Tickets are $35 with funds going to scholarships awarded at the event. Four other people/organizations - including Aces Footfall - will be inducted as well. If you're interested in attending, just let me know and I will pass your ticket purchase request to the committee.
I wish you all a wonderful day and rest of the week.
May your muses inspire....
