A Writer's Break & A Book Giveaway

It’s been a long week, you know? I realize as I’m writing this it’s only Monday, but last week is sort of lapping over.  
 My newest digital release, Hawke’s Indians  is free on Kindle this week Monday through Wednesday Aug. 4 through 7.  Grab a copy, you know your Kindle needs feeding and if you have a minute, throw up a short review on Amazon. (No pressure though ). So I’ve been spending some time getting the word out about that including my book trailer that accompanies it.  
Two more books are in the pipeline to be released in digital edition over the summer.
Keep an eye out.  Oh, and poke around here to see the books already in digital format and available. 
Meanwhile I’ve been blogging away, for others and for myself. It’s a lot of words, especially when you’re supposed to be finishing writing another book at the same time. 
It was a week when I also finished a paying project not my own for a client and got the time to put together the info needed to submit a script for consideration. 
Now, not that I’m complaining, but I have a checklist on a spiral pad close to hand. I keep checking things off and, well, gladly adding things on the bottom. I like it like that, but well, I needed a break.
So I stumbled on the Giving Bunny project. I couldn’t resist. You don’t have to be handy with needle and thread, you can use glue, though I stitched mine.
The idea is you make these little bunnies and place then in tucked away locations to be discovered by somebody who’s day needs a bit of brightening.  So far I’ve turned two bunnies lose, one at a small local mall and another at a restaurant.
It made me smile to make them and think of their discovery so I hope some other folk will feel the same, grab the simple pattern from the website with the printable tags and get those bunnies out there! The person who finds it may feel all warm, fuzzy and sparkly inside, but they have no idea how sparkly it makes the anonymous giver feel. A wonderful break from 'real' work.
Have a great week – it’s back to work for me. Let me know if you decide to join the bunny brigade and where you leave one…


  1. I love your book trailer Peggy. The 'Westerner' music really gives it atmosphere. I'm going to have to figure out how to do one for my next book. I've got lots of lovely pictures so I'm thinking perhaps a Powerpoint slideshow with a voiceover.

  2. Check out WeVideo and see if that is of any use to you - worked well for me.
