Road to Somewhere, Giveaways & Celebrate

Exciting stuff today!

Two of my Inklings Literary Agency sisters are revealing the cover of their novel, Road to Somewhere, coming out from Bloomsbury Spark.  They have a giveaway for an ARC of the book.  Woohoo!  I have a guest post and a giveaway of Soul Cutter at Unicorn Bell! Plus, I'm celebrating.  Read on for more!

New! From Bloomsbury Spark, a sunny heartwarming story of discovery and sisterhood. 

A road trip. A singing competition. And super-hot cowboys. 

What could be better? 

For Charlie, a post-high school road trip isn't just a vacation, it's life changing. While her parents think she's helping a friend move, a chance at fame is the real reason to grab her best friends and drive to L.A. But when her super annoying, uber-responsible, younger sister, Lucy, has to tag along, it isn't quite the summer of fun she imagined. 

Add in a detour to her grandparents' ranch in Texas, and between mucking the stalls, down-home cookin’, and drool worthy ranch hands, this could just turn into the best, and most complicated, summer of their lives.

Today I'm celebrating:
1)  The tourist biz isn't going well in Egypt (no surprise, right?), and my hubby's hotel has now cut him down to part time hours.  So why am I celebrating?  I'm celebrating he still has a job at all.  Many who we know don't.
2)  An awesome post by Mooderino made me realize my new WIP's main character doesn't have urgent enough goals.  Ack! Writerly meltdown! Quick -- replot everything!  So why am I celebrating?  It's a lot better to know things like this early than late, right?  Plus, I discovered I just have to re-do the motivation, which was easy!
3)  With hubs home more (due to lay-off) and taking up more of my time, I have less time to write.  So why am I celebrating?  He's kinda sweet and has been offering to cook.  Now if I could just get him to offer to do the cleaning, since I do 95% of it...

What percentage of the cooking and cleaning do you or your significant other do around the house?
