Haven’t blogged in a while, but I have a couple of things to talk about this week.
First, big book giveaway! I’ve teamed up with six other Harlequin Authors. Together, we’re giving away SEVEN packs of SEVEN autographed books. We’re doing this on Facebook, and it’s super easy to enter for the drawing. Here is the link to the contest page: http://www.facebook.com/kara.lennox/app_455995934413715
Second: Do you need an agent? How do you find the right agent? What can agents do for your career? These questions and more will be addressed in the online workshop “All About Agents,” I’m teaching at Savvy Authors, Class starts June 11! Here’s the link:http://www.savvyauthors.com/vb/showevent.php?eventid=885
Other writing news: I just turned in a new proposal to my Superromance editor for three more Project Justice books. Fingers crossed!
So what else is going on?
I’ve revived my acting career. I got a little part in an industrial film shot by Sony (an in-house marketing kind of thing) and I had so much fun! My actress friend Marie said if I want to do more, I should sign up at Actors Access. So I did, and I’ve been submitting myself for all kinds of roles. And, OMG, I got one! I get to play “Sleeping Wardrobe Woman” in a low-budget feature film.
On the home front, I had a contractor out to look at our back porch (which basically doesn’t exist) and give us a quote for building a new one. I really, really want a porch. It’s going to be expensive because we have to match the houses’s historic details. But I’m hoping we can do it in phases. I’m supposed to get a quote this week.
In the garden, we’re harvesting raspberries, strawberries and cherry tomatoes almost every day. I’m afraid the other tomato plants are something of a disappointment. I don’t know why, but they aren’t making tomatoes. Last year we had tons! Only the cherry tomato plan seems to be happy. But I did harvest our first yellow squash, and we have loads more coming. Can’t wait to eat it tonight!
And, finally, I dusted off my metal detector and went over the whole front yard, while it’s still mostly soft dirt. I found a Ziploc bag of what I thought, at first, was silver coins. But it tuned out to be some miscellaneous chrome hardware, parts of a chair or something. ::sigh:: I also found 4 pennies. Then I went to the beach, where I found a number of quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies, nothing old.
As you can see, I have way too many interests and hobbies. I wish I could clone myself. Lately I’ve been neglecting my Etsy stores. Haven’t done much in the way of art, and I have stacks of vintage items sitting around waiting to be cleaned up, photographed and listed for sale. (Got an antique silver plate water pitcher for $1 the other day!). But only so many hours in a day.
