What I’ve Been Up To

It’s been quite awhile since I last posted a blog, but for good reason. My good friend Pete got married last Sunday, and I was in the wedding. I also had friends staying with me throughout the week, and it was a very busy, very fun time.

You may remember my friend Pete from the cover of a book I wrote.

This is her on her loveliest of lovely days (She’s the one in the wedding dress):

Here are all my friends, some visiting from out of state, some from out of town, and even some from out of country, together again, celebrating our togetherness:

And here are some shoes I bought:

All the proceeds go to Michael J. Fox’s foundation, so it’s okay that I spent too much money on the Nike MAG. Because I’m also saving Michael J. Fox’s life. And whenever I think about him being sick, I cry.

In the meantime, I’m writing things and editing things. So all around it’s been a very busy time in my household. Busy, but good.

OH! And I got my Halloween costume. Me and Eric doing a theme. This year it’s Disney villains. I’m the Queen of Hearts, he’s the Cheshire Cat (who according to the Monopoly Disney Villains Edition is technically a villain), my dog is being Captain Hook, and my cat Squeak, who is my dog’s best friend, is been Captian Hook’s sidekick, Smee. So it’s going to be loads of fun for Halloween at my house.

But that’s a really long time away. Which is good, because I have a ton of things to do before then.

    Hi Amanda,
    I was wondering if you’d be willing to give my blog readers an inside scoop on how to promote their books. I started a blog specifically to help promote other self published authors and I’ve had a huge response, but so many people are down trodden with the task of marketing for themselves.
    You’re name has become huge and I’m sure my readers would LOVE to hear from you. The blog address is and my personal email is
    Thanks so much!
    By the way…just raced through your Trylle and My Blood Approves series and have downloaded Virtue. Thanks to you I’m severly procrastinating on my own book right now!

    Amanda, I’m really, really bored. Can’t you just come out with a book or something?

    I just started reading the trilogy, I know, I know, compeletly late to the game…so here’s where I’m stuck.

    I cannot find Torn in e-book format anywhere (B&N, Amazon,Smashwords, etc)…does anyone have any suggestions. Amanda, ideas???

    Please feel free to email me if you know. Love the books, can’t wait to keep reading.

  • You’re so funny, Amanda! I’m looking forward to seeing you all in your costumes. Be sure to post pics!
