Cruising on Empty, but Cruising: ROW80

Wow, there's so much fun stuff to tell you about (which is why this post is late). I'm running around like a crazy woman thanks to a huge edit and getting ready for UtopYA. I leave Wednesday morning. Eek!

Okay, on with the stuff.

First, the lovely Jo Michaels--who I will finally meet at UtopYA--featured an interview with me on her blog this week. Plus, there's a giveaway for an eBook set of my Tala Prophecy series and also an eBook of Chasing Shadows. An excerpt:

Jo: I hear that. Maybe all kids do that. Mine are also ridiculously different. I know you’ve used all three of your daughters’ names in your Tala Prophecy series. Who does each character represent and why? 

Tia: My eldest daughter, Jackie, is an old soul who is wise beyond her years, so it made perfect sense for her to be the Wiccan grandmother. Reagan, my middle daughter, is the tough-as-nails heroine. She’s a lacrosse goalie and afraid of nothing, but she has a soft side and a love for family just like my main character. Finally, Madeleine, my baby. She’s all kinds of sassy and strong, but she loves fiercely. You don’t want to get in her way. Madeleine, the character, is the same. Life has thrown her major curveballs, but she perseveres and protects her own.

And I’ll share a little exclusive here on Jo’s blog… my daughter, Reagan, does not love to read (it’s not my fault!). I thought she might want to read a book where she was the heroine. So, yes, it was partly a sneaky-Mom trick.


Speaking of giveaways, the wonderful Heather Topham Wood is running one to celebrate 4,000 Likes on her Facebook page. Check it out...

Mondays are my A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) check-ins. 

Speaking of ROW80, Kait Nolan needed a bit of help and I rushed her an inspiration post. It's a tribute to this amazing group. Take a moment and read it here.

Have you ever run around all day, and someone asks, "What'd you do all day?" You know you never sat down and kicked some to-dos in the butt, but you can't put it into words. That's me, right now! After UtopYA, I'll get back to writing and more standard ROW80 updates.

Hope everyone is well!

Totally loved having you on the blog, Tia! I can't wait to see you tomorrow. HOW EXCITING IS THIS?!?!

I know the feeling of running around and not realizing, or being able to put into words, all you've done. You just know you're exhausted :) LOL
