New Month, New Week, New Day! New Books!

<By the time this post is live, it will be after lunch time?>
It is November 1st, and you know what that means! Its a new month. This year is flying by! This post is going to be just a "wrap-up" of what I did over the last week, and a brief update on what I plan to do this week/month. As well letting you all know that right after I posted my last post about the two books I was waiting for . . . they arrived five minutes afterwards, thanks to the landlord who brought the mail over. xD I am nearly finished reading Prophet by R.J. Larson. And I have already completed The Preacher's Bride by Jody Hedlund. Amazing book(s) that you need to check out!

As you all know, I had thought about participating in NaNoWriMo. However, the month of November has just been filled with a massive amount of family related things and I do not think I will have the time to sit and write excessively, nor would I be writing more than my usual quota. My sister still uses my laptop during the week days, in the afternoons, as well as a full day on Saturday.

Now, I have been making slight changes in the music I listen to, and one of my step-mothers (yes, we will get into that later) received a box of CD's from one of her friends and they are all artists I would listen to! I asked her if I could make a copy of them for myself, and she gave them to me! Here are the artists/albums I now own.
 I am super excited about listening to these albums. I already have a few songs from Misty Edwards, but I am so glad to have the entire album . . . . If I can get my stinking laptop to acknowledge the disc drive. . . . Okay it acknowledged. 

On another note, I am attempting to get my next book going so that I have some chapters ready and waiting when I finish Pictures of You. I have a little "poll" happening on, so that I can share then next two story ideas I have and see what my readers want more. I already have one vote . . . No, not my own, because mine do not count. If any of you would like to help me out, just click HERE. You do not need an account to take the poll, so if you would help me out, that would be fantastic. The two ideas I have in the poll are Escaping Reality and Seeking Shelter. The poll contains all the details about each book, so click that link and go check them out.

I have a few books that I need to get to reading, because they are either part of a blog tour, or I am reviewing them for someone. I really need to get to them ASAP, but every time I sit down to do them, my mind goes somewhere else and I end up doing my own work. I am not slacking, I am just maintaining that balance I was talking about . . . I am not requesting as frequently on NetGalley as I used to, because I still have so many books that I did not read before the protected files expired. I think I can open them again as  a "new" file, but I need to finish the other ones first.

I am thinking about making a FB page. I mean, I can handle a page. I am always updating my Twitter and Tumblr, which I can link to the page. Boom! Content for a FB page. But like I said, I am only thinking about it. I do not intend to actually upkeep a page.

You guys might notice that I have a new tab in this blog called: Sister Promos. Well, it is going to stand as a promotional blog/site to promote certain content. Not like my book blog, that is forever remaining as is. No, not like this personal blog. I am going to be a promoter in this family thing so I need to get something going for that. I am a big sister, I love sharing, so Sister Promos. Also, the #HashtagMagazine blog is still on hold. I may not keep that going.

My writing! I am on a roll with Pictures of You, with the exception that I have not finished the chapter I am currently working on. However, I do work on it in bits and pieces when I sit down. I have received some feedback on it, so I feel good about how it is coming along.

Well, that is all for now. I hope you are all well. Keep watch on my book blog this week. Really cool things happening! God bless you and see you soon!
