Monday Stuff

The SHOMI team (Liz Maverick, me, and Eve Kenin) is blogging over at Romance B(u)y the Book today. If you want to win free copies of the first 3 Shomi books - head on over!

It was nice to have a weekend in which I did nothing but relax. I had wanted to get more writing done, but it was what it was. Sometimes the brain just needs a quick vacation. Will get back on the wagon this week. I am still on schedule for my deadline so I'm not worried.

Once this book is finished, I need to write up a proposal for my next Shomi book. I have a really cool idea for it - but I just have to push it to the back of my brain until I am finished my current WIP. So many ideas, so little time to write them. :)

For you World of Warcraft addicts out there, I have currently saved 3,500 gold toward my elite mount so far. Just 1,500 to go! Arghhh! As soon as I get my $5,000 I'm going to do all the Netherdrake quests so I can get myself a dragon! Woot. It takes sooo long to save though - especially as a warrior with my killer repair bill. I totally see why people buy gold from chinese farmers!! (Not that I would - I just understand the frustration!)

By the way, I have a contest going on at my MySpace page if you want to head over and enter. I'm giving away a Moongazer arc and some mangas that I acquired at BEA.

Speaking of which - I am totally addicted to manga now. I've been reading it as research for Gamer Girl and it's sooo fun. I especially like Dramacon, Vampire Knight, and Princess Ai. (All the sojo (girl/romantic) stuff.) I need to go pick up more soon. At BEA, Liz and I actually ended up hanging out and drinking champagne with the president of Tokyo Pop and picked his brain about the industry. So interesting! I'd love to do a Sojo manga about World of Warcraft. I think a lot of girls would be into it.

The deaf girl in Read my Lips is very into Mangas... because they are so visual. Can't wait to read your book!
