Push One, Publish Another!

I'm still at it. Traveling around, shamelessly selling my book. 

So, won't you please visit me at Rachel Schieffelbein's for an interview? 

I was a busy gal last night.

 I scrubbed down my bathroom, exercised, and signed the contract for my fourth book. 

The bathroom totally needed a thorough scrub and I was in a time pinch, so I used one of these: 

Buy yours Here!

It was genius. Why didn't I think to do it before? The mix of Comet and dish soap made the tub sparkle in a flash!

As for the exercising, I'm paying Carter (boy #3) $2.00 a week to be my trainer. With exercises like skull crushers and an hour on the treadmill...I'm beginning to think he's in cahoots with his dad to off me for my life insurance money.

Now, about that book! 

Bella's Point is my baby. I love this book. I've wanted to write this book since I read Gone with the Wind and wondered...what if the character had the heart of Melanie Wilkes and the fire of Scarlet O'Hara? 

The result?  Isabellla Francine Troy Stanley, or Bella for short. 

And I am just giddy...Lora Yeater, the gifted lady behind my author photograph, is going to take the pictures for the cover for Bella's Point!  I am so thrilled. We were discussing what my plans would be for this story and she mentioned she would love to try to capture the spirit of the book on film. Would I mind? 

Would I?

Hah! I'm so excited...not even skull crushers or the scrubbing of the tub could bring me down!

  1. Congratulations, Elizabeth! Having such exciting news would give me the energy to do some good housecleaning, too! Well.... even though I'm happy about lots of different things right now...I still haven't done much cleaning! LOL. It's so darn cold here, all I want to do is snuggle under the covers, eat, sleep, and do a bit of writing...The laundry and housecleaning are just piling up! :)
    I need a "Hazel!"

    1. I'm feeling that way too Becky! I have to make myself do the basics. Once spring comes, I'm going to have to do a thorough clean! And a purge. Got too much clutter around this place!

  2. Congratulations on signing! That's amazing, and that cleaning gizmo looks like something I might need. Also, it's pretty awesome that you are paying your son to be your trainer (umm, what's a skull crusher? Do I want to know?)

    1. Thanks Rena! A skull crusher is when you take dumb bells and raise them over your head and bring them down behind your neck. I guess if you drop one, it's a skull crusher.

    1. Evil woman. Yes, they are aching. Today is legs. Ugh. You people who enjoy this sort of agony are just touched in the head. Hehe. But, it has to be done. I want to live a healthy life and all that blah blah blah.
