The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.
I was very busy this week with design work that I didn’t get a chance to write or even CHECK on my blog this week! There was a WordPress update and I didn’t even know it. I always backup my blog like a fiend before I update WordPress. I don’t let WordPress update itself on it’s own. You just never know what will happen to your theme or any customizations when WordPress updates 😉 I update both on my cPanel at my host and using the plugin I paid for last year.
I did read a ton of books this week, though. I can say I’m coming out of my reading slump and it’s all thanks to being inspired by two books:
I’d forgotten how funny Kylie Scott is. And Emery Lord was able to put an extremely realistic portrayal of depression into words. I cried from 80% until the end. I promise, I’ll have the reviews for both this coming week 🙂
Well, I went and scheduled a migraine – I bought a ticket to BookCon. It’s the open-to-the-public-chaos that is on Saturday after BEA closes. My train doesn’t leave Union Station until 4pm and I would have spent the $30 for the ticket on food or junk anyways. So I figured, why not? Besides, a lot of my favorite authors will be there that I don’t see scheduled during BEA (damn it!)
I also got my business cards in the mail this past week. Yep, I finally nailed down a design for my “business” and had time to do the cards. Not too bad for my first try (caveat: I did Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer’s cards but she had a definite idea of what she wanted – phew!) These are front and back cards, glossy, and I got them from Vistaprint, 100 for a little less than $30. I used Photoshop instead of Illustrator to do them and despite worrying about seeing the pixels, they came out fabulous. I’m so happy with them!!
Now, all I have to do is get something up on my design site. Yep, all I have to do…
Clean Sweep ARC Challenge is almost HERE! YAY!!!!!
I am NOT sticking very well to my plan of not taking review books before BEA. Meh…
See that bright, glowing orb in the sky? That’s the sun!! Amazing, I know!!!
