What a fantastic week! It was my featured week on the Indie Author Network blog and I had so much fun sharing with everyone a little more about myself, and some awesome things that had to do with the writing community. For easier access, I've listed direct links to all of my posts on the IAN website for anyone who's missed them and is interested in reading.

In other news, I won grand prize on a book giveaway and received 5 new books that I can't wait to dig my fingers in, but I have so many others on my TBR list, it could be awhile before I get to them. I'm currently reading Bound by Lee Taylor, and although I'm enjoying it, I'm having a hard time making decent progress on it. I don't think I've really been that busy, but maybe I have!
I've also been procrastinating on my writing. I've been using OpenOffice, which is free, but it's been crashing on me before I get everything saved (actually crashes during the save), and doesn't restore it all. I seem to lose a lot of good writing because of it and it's been frustrating enough to make me just take some time off. I'd rather step back than throw my computer.
My mom took me to Rapid City, SD yesterday for a girl's day out/celebration shopping trip. She bought me 3 new shirts, a few select new undergarments, and a new pair of jeans! We also went out to eat, and spent a little bit of time in the bookstore there (though it wasn't near long enough!). I slept the whole way home (after eating ice cream) and have been fairly run down since. Apparently, I'm getting too old for all day shopping sprees. Yesterday evening, I did a small celebration of my own by giving myself a new dye job and highlight.
I've finally come to terms with the fact that, due to Jessie and my clashing schedules, it could be quite some time before Love During Death is finished and ready to go. So, I've settled for working more on my other writings and touch on Love During Death when time allots.
Off to spend time with my little boy before bed! Have a good week and don't forget to get your entries in for the free copy of The Seventh Layer! Giveaway ends on the 16th. Here's the link: http://www.rachelaolson.com/special-events.html
