TTBA Weekly News and Mailbox Monday...Late Edition

This feature was inspired by It's Monday! What are you reading? hosted by Sheila at Book Journey and by The Sunday Salon.


Here I am with another late edition! My Monday was very hectic so now I'm playing catch up. =O)

EVENTS


If you haven't already, be sure to stop over at Castle Macabre for my launch event this month.  The giveaways are listed in the left sidebar.  Also, I'm hosting my Fall read-a-thon over there next month.  You can read more about the Frightful Fall Read-a-Thon and sign-up HERE.


Next month, Kai at Fiction State of Mind, Orchid at The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia, and me (over at Castle Macabre) are hosting the Frightful Fall Reviewers Challenge.  You can read the details and sign-up HERE.  There will be giveaways on all three blogs!


Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon is on October 22, 2011 and the official sign-up is posted.  They have made some changes with sign-ups and some other stuff.  You can read all about it and sign-up HERE.  I never do well at the shorter read-a-thons, but I'm still going to give it a shot.  I'm seriously thinking about sleeping long hours on Friday (while the boys are at school and go to bed early Friday night) so I can pull an all-nighter for the read-a-thon. We shall see!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!
