Updates & Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

Well I'm embarrassed that I've neglected to post and have ignored my friends this past month.  It couldn't be helped though.  Between work and family, life hit me in full force.  That said, I'll do my best to get back into the swing again this month.

JulNoWriMo:  First off, anyone participating in July Novel Writing Month?  I'm going to try but I fear I may be off to a bad start.  For those interested, that's a whopping 1600+ words per day.  Are my writer buddies up for the task?  Let me know if your in.

ISWG:  Insecure Writers Support Groups is scheduled for Wednesday so I'm looking forward to that.  I could use some support lately.  Keep your fingers crossed that my book releases this month.  I've had a heck of a time crossing all the items off on my self-pub To Do list so please bare with me.

Guest posts & author interviews:  If you're looking to promote your book and need some help, please drop me an email.  I'll be happy to work with you on a post.  My schedule won't allow me to review books though, but I can still promote authors.  :)

Giveaways:  Since I've been remiss with my blogging duties, I haven't given away any free sh** in some time, so without further delay, it's time for the...

You're back, I missed you!! Sorry to hear life was cray-cray for you last month, but oh am I excited to hear about your book coming out his month--that just rocks! For me, it's just the opposite, things are getting crazier and crazier for me, especially with the kids going on summer break here at the end of the week.... yikes!! I think we all need a little IWSG hugs!! :D

Hey Mina! We have missed you. Let us know when your book launches - I'll do a big shout-out for you.
See you Wednesday for the IWSG.

Hi Mina!
I wondered where you'd gotten to... nice to see you back in BlogLand! It's understandable that life gets in the way and some things (like blogging) have to take a back seat for a while. I feel so overwhelmed from time to time, trying to juggle writing/blogging/reading... and life in general that still needs to be added to the whole equation! Sheesh! Time is tight...
Your book is ready to launch? That is EXCITING news! Yay!! Keep us in the loop!
