This week I'm celebrating:
I'm giving my thanks to whoever lowered the temp on the planetary oven.  Now Egypt is only baking, not burning, and everyone's grateful for the respite!

Celebrate: Roll Call & Giveaways!

This week I'm celebrating:

1)  I completed revising a chapter and am working on finishing another one. Yay!
2) I found a way to make visiting the members of Celebrate the Small Things easier.  I copied the blog addresses for every member on our linky and put them into a separate Blogger blog roll.  (See it at the bottom of left sidebar.)  Now I don't have to click through to the blogs of all the members to see if they've posted or not.  I can see at a glance who has a new Celebrate post up and go visit those who do.  Since we now have 52 members (WOW!!) this is a great time saver, and I suggest you make your own blog roll like I have.  :) 
3) With a little help from Megaphone Man, I'm spreading the word about others celebrations:

Celebrate's very own Tanya Miranda has something wonderful to celebrate!  Today is the release of her novel THE BOX OF SOULS!  Woohoo!

Blurb: Although Jasmyn was overlooked to inherit her grandmother's magic, she learns she has powers of her own.  Resentment and envy are a dangerous pair, but when doused with magic, the chaos it creates is unimaginable.

Buy links: Amazon  B&N  Kobo  iBooks  Smashwords


Denise Covey and Yolanda Renee have re-opened “Write…Edit…Publish!” It's an exciting monthly flash fiction challenge (1000 words or less).  This month’s challenge is called “Spectacular Settings” and takes place Aug 19-26. Read the rules and sign up on the Write Edit Publish blog.
