Busy, Busy, Busy...

Happy Monday! Hope those who were celebrating had a fun and frolicsome Independence Day celebration. Team Gini's still technically on 4th of July holiday (we work hard and play hard here), but there's a lot going on, and I didn't want to wait another moment to share it all with you.

With that build up, I know you're expecting the Earth to move, but, um, well, as my Hook Me Up! subscribers already know, really, it's just a lot of good stuff today and there's more coming and...

First up, there are more nice reviews of "Touched by an Alien" to check out. Head over to the Onward blog, then hit Dirty Sexy Books blog. After that, jump to The Book Addict to see where "Touched by an Alien" is on her June reading list. Also, for those of you who entered her many cool contests, winners will be announced soon!

In somewhat related news, as you all know, our own Amber Scott started Project Pay It Forward with "Touched by an Alien". That's going on and going well, but Amber wants to get a new book going, and she's asking for suggestions. Head over to The Amber Scott Project and give her some ideas of which debut author's book you think she should start a PPIF for. I've logged my suggestion, go log yours!

By now you all know I'm going to Comic-Con...wait for a professional! (You knew it was coming.) Anyway, I'm going, and it's been sold out since November. BUT, there are returned memberships available, so if any of you are still hoping to go, check out the Comic-Con website and see if you can score tix. (BTW, don't buy from scalpers -- buy only through Comic-Con or you'll be likely to waste your hard-earned money.) My panel is on Friday -- check the Datebook page for details -- if you can only go one day.

My Twitter Followers contest is still going; just need a few more followers in order to reach 200 and then send out a signed copy of "Touched by an Alien". Our own Dark Wyrm Reads gently reminded me last week that I hadn't shared how to find me on Twitter with those who might not be following me already, so, I'm @GiniKoch and I believe you can just go to Twitter, sign up if you're not on it, and search for me. Or, click on the link right here on the Blog Roll (to the left of the blog, under the nav bar).

I'd ramble on some more, but edits never sleep. So, I'm back to editing "Alien in the Family" and you all go back to hitting websites and being your own bad selves, and we'll do it all again later this week!

Good luck on the edits and if you need a Beta reader I'm always willing to help out, helpful pig that I am. *cough*

You know, Sully, it's amazing. I've gotten so many more offers recently from folks willing to beta read...

Nice try. Very nice, much appreciated, current beta team feels strongly that they're keeping their jobs. (Hey, Team Gini hires based on many criteria, loyalty being only one.)

Keep your cute little eyeballs peeled, however. As soon as DAW can let me know some "things" I can let you all know some "things" and then there will be some "things" that will be given away in a Hook Me Up! exclusive contest.

But I can't say what "things" at this precise time...

Darn, I thought it was a very nice try ;-)
But seriously: Good luck with the editing and tell your Beta readers how lucky they are!
And I will keep my eyes out for the some 'things'.

LOL, yes, do. The "things" will be coming dribbling in, but they ARE coming...
