A to Z Reflection, SNIP, SNIP REVENGE, and THE ATTIC OF SAND AND SECRETS

April was a crazy month. I was a judge in a pitch contest, I had deadlines with edits and two different projects, SNIP, SNIP REVENGE was released, and I was doing A to Z. I am exhausted.

Posting for A to Z wasn’t difficult since I had the posts ready months before. It was a challenge keeping up with comments, though, but I managed. I connected with new and old folks and even gained some followers.

I like my theme, which I’ve had for two years in a row. I enjoy reading and reviewing bloggers’ books. I’ll be doing the same next year.

I had an overwhelming response from bloggers who hosted me for SNIP, SNIP REVENGE. Thank you so much. There will still be some more posts throughout the month. My publisher is also setting up a blog tour, which I'll be sharing soon. Also, there's one more day left in my Rafflecopter giveaway. My Goodreads giveaway for this book runs through early June.

I'm getting ready for my next release, a middle grade novel entitled THE ATTIC OF SAND AND SECRETS. If you'd like to spread the word, the form is below, and I'll always be willing to return the favor.

Writing posts ahead is the only way to go.
I didn't gain a lot of new followers (which is fine!) but I did reconnect with some old ones, which was cool.
And happy to help with the next book!

I signed up. How exciting! I haven't been part of one of these before, but I'm kind of new to this particular part of blogging. You're on fire these days. So many releases.

I know how busy you've been. Great job getting so much accomplished! Your MG sounds awesome! Love the title.

Keeping up with comments is why I decided not to do the Challenge this year, although I participated at the IWSG site.

Signing up to help with your next book.

I'm exhausted just realising how much you've had on your plate, and that you managed to so ably balance everything. It's really admirable, actually.

Wow, you were busier than most people doing the A to Z! ;) I didn't have my posts all totally set to go before April, so for me it was sometimes a last-minute scramble to get it posted. A few times I forgot till the next morning, too. Awkward!

Anyway, I got it done...

Very exciting that you're gearing up for ANOTHER book release as well!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Another new book is exciting. Congratulations. I'll be happy to help promote the new one. Have a nice week.

Angela Brown said...

April really was a busy month and sort of flew by with so much going on.

Glad things are going well with all your projects and wishing you the best as each one is released into the world.

cleemckenzie said...

Many things going on at the same time, Medeia! Good for you on pulling everything off. And Congrats on both books.

Misha Gericke said...

Wow looks like you had an epic April. :-D

LuAnn Braley said...

What a cool theme for the A to Z! (And, I'm sure, well appreciated by your brother and sister blogger-authors!) Signed up for your tour.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Congrats Medeia! Good planning is the key to the challenge and you nailed it. Congrats on the book too!

Samantha May said...

What a busy month! And I complained about finals :P

Congrats on the releases! You're killing it!

J E Oneil said...

Wow, and I thought my April was busy. I hope you have time to take a breath. Congratulations on the release!

storytreasury said...

Congrats on the release!

Sounds like an impossible month! But happy that you managed!

Lexa Cain said...

I always have so much admiration for you and all the things you do. I can't multitask as well as you, and if I wanna ever get my WIP finished I need to do less social media. Them's the breaks...

TBM said...

Sounds like a busy, but fantastic month. Good luck with everything!

T.F. Walsh said...

You've been so busy, but managed to get it all done... huge congrats.

DEZMOND said...

I like the title of your upcoming book!

Michelle Wallace said...

Sounds like you had a super-busy but productive month!
And congrats on another release... I LOVE the title!

Kelly Hashway said...

I had trouble the first time I tried to sign up so I did it again. Sorry if it shows on your end twice but I wanted to make sure it worked. :)

worddreams said...

I follow several competitors. Their number of comments seem to have exploded thanks to A to Z. I'll be watching if it sticks.

D Biswas said...

All the best for your book! Thank you for your support during the A to Z Challenge. :)

VR Barkowski said...

I don't know how you kept up with it all, Medeia. I didn't participate in A to Z, and I was still swamped with edits and a deadline on a short story. I am humbled!

Carol Kilgore said...

My novel released last April and I did A-Z then, too. I know that exhausted feeling :)

S.K. Anthony said...

The A to Z was mostly challenging in regards to keeping up with the comments, I mean wow. I didn't make it here until now o_0 lol But I will be going back when I have more time.

I love the cover and premise of Snip, Snip Revenge, Medeia! Congrats and best of luck. ;)

klahanie said...

Hi human, Medeia,

Considering how busy you were with other things. I was really glad to see your book featured on so many sites.

Nice reflection pawst, my human friend. I've never been one for gaining followers. I'm blessed with the total I have. Besides, it's fun being a well kept secret :)

Your theme was a very kind, sharing one.

Pawsitive wishes,

Penny, the cordial host of The Alphabark Challenge, 2014! :)

Sherry Ellis said...

Are you powered by Energizer batteries? I can't believe how much you get done!

Romance Book Haven said...

All the best for your book, Medeia!

Suze said...

Argh! I swore I'd commented on this post but don't see my thoughts, here.

Medeia, you are a whirlwind. You impress and amaze me with your stamina, girl!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I completely missed SSR. Sorry!

And I still can't believe you survived the AtoZ challenge. I think you deserve an award for that!!!!

Lynda R Young said...

As always, you are so organised!

Jocelyn Rish said...

Whew! You've had a pretty crazy April, so congrats on getting everything done!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Medeia - congratulations on doing all of those things .. well done and good luck with the book and forthcoming books .. as Lynda says you are one organised lady!

Cheers Hilary

Meradeth Houston said...

Signed up! And I hope you get a little chance to relax after so much going on :)

DMS said...

I liked hearing your thoughts on the A-Z month. I know you had your posts read early, but I can only guess how busy you felt commenting on so many posts/blogs. Especially considering all of the other wonderful things you had keeping you busy in April. Nice job! :)
