Checking In- Potpourri

It’s no secret that I post sporadically here. Sometimes while I’m driving to my daughter’s high school to pick her up from her musical rehearsal, I’ll think of a great idea for a blog post. But then I get home and the next thing you know, the kids are in bed and it’s my writing time. I ask you, which would you rather me spend time writing: my next book or a blog post?
See? Priorities.
But still, things slip through the cracks. I forget to post little things like Chosen being free on Amazon for two days last Thursday and Friday. That would have been helpful information to someone who had read my other books and was considering reading Chosen. I’m sorry. Truly, I am. So then I feel like I can’t post that Chosen has broken the top 100 in the Kindle store again, this time dropping to #19 at one point. Or that Chosen has been in the top 100 for six days now. Or that Hunted is currently at #145.
Oh, wait. I just did.
Or I forget to post about how grateful I am that readers love my books and love my characters and email asking “When is the next book coming out?” I write first for me, but second, hoping others will love my stories, too. Every time someone tells me how much they love a story, my heart swells with pride and gratitude. Every. Time. I hope to God that I never take that for granted. There are over a million books on Amazon, millions all over the world, yet you chose to read MINE.
Thank you.
I haven’t forgotten this blog, it’s just that so many other things capture my attention. One place I DO post frequently, and gives a closer look into my life, is on Facebook. When I stopped blogging on my family blog, There’s Always Room for One More, I started posting things about my kids and life on Facebook. If anyone wants to friend me there, feel free! You’ll get more up to date information and perhaps a little TMI– like this status update:

Seriously, how can one consider going on with their life NOT knowing things like that about me?  You can find me as Denise Grover Swank. If you get the option to make a comment, tell me you friended me via this blog post.

Um, is there anything else???

Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes is getting a new cover and will be available FREE on Amazon Kindle for two days in March. I PROMISE to give some notice for that. I’m so excited about this cover! The talented Janet Holmes read the book and LOVED it. She’s very excited about coming up with a new cover that fits the book. I can’t wait to show you all– as soon as I see it!!! In the meantime, I start back on the first draft of Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons tomorrow.

I’m still planning on a March release of Sacrifice, probably toward the end of the month. I’ll keep you updated on that too.  Have any questions for ME? Post them below and I’ll be sure to answer them!
