Around the Blog in Sixty Seconds

A couple of cool things happening today and over the weekend.

First, Elena Solodow is vlogging about Captive Spirit today on her blog!  She's doing her interpretation of the first 500 words of my book, complete with pictures and sound and everything. She totally rocks.  If you're not already following her blog, do yourself a favor and follow her.  Her blog is very unique and entertaining. To view her vlog of Captive Spirit, click here.  It is awesome!!

Last week I was inundated with requests for ARCs for Craving Perfect which put a huge smile on my face for most of the week and weekend.  Lo and behold, over the weekend, book blogger Dorthyn already posted her review to Goodreads.  And Shelfari.  And Barnes and Noble, and a bunch of other book blogger sites.  I heart her!  Most of all, I was so happy that she enjoyed the book.   And--here's the really cool part--people have begun to pre-order it on Amazon! Life is good.  Better than chocolate.

Finally, tomorrow on the blog I have a visitor! Come meet JB Lynn, author of a very cool mystery entitled The First Victim.

I look forward to seeing what this week will bring and certainly hope it will stay as productive as the last.

Happy Monday, all!

Oh I LOVED Captive Spirit! And I am enjoying Craving Perfect. This is the month for reading for me! ;-)

Congratulations, Liz! Sounds like your off to a great start! I wish I knew how I could get the library to order it... :(

Jean Davis said...

Congrats on all the goodness coming your way! May it continue on for a long time. :)

Theresa Milstein said...

I'm off to Elena's blog.

I love your book cover.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That's awesome! Nothing like a bunch of review copy requests - and an early review.

Kittie Howard said...

Liz, the vlog is awesome! (Left a comment!) I especially enjoyed it because I bought Captive Spirit the other day - your writing was such that I imagine all just as in the vlog. I'm at the White Ant/Red Ant part before the Rain Dance. I'm in heaven with how you wove culture and history into such a dynamite plot. Great job! I'm gonna put your cover on my sidebar, okay?

J.L. Campbell said...

Wonderful. Wishing you every success with Craving Perfect. I'll be reading ASAP.

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

Congrats on the preorders and reviews! So exciting! I guess I'll have to mosey on over and join the preorder line :)

Michael Di Gesu said...

Congrats on the VLOG/Trailer at Elena's blog AND on you multiple reviews!

Your book is next on my list, Liz! I can't wait to read it.

Nicki Elson said...
