A little update

We cancelled our weekend camping trip, so we’re going to be sticking around the house this weekend. When I left my office, it was 100 degrees outside. The low country was pretty much that temperature. When I climbed up to the bench, it hit 106.

Bulldogs tip over and die at those temperatures. Our weekend would have been spent with wet towels, possibly dunking dogs in the lake, etc. That doesn’t sound like much of a camp out to me.

My plan is to write as much as possible. We might get a shot at date night since payday is in about five hours.

In other news, I created a BookBub account. People who are smarter than me said it’s the place to be, so now I am. I’m still figuring it all out, and it seems like a kinder gentler version of Goodreads.

I’m telling you this so you can all rush over there and check it out. I’ll need BookBub friends, and the extremely generous ones can post your reviews there too. Okay enough pimping my new location. Here is my BookBub Link. I’m open to any tips you guys have about finding my way around there.

New topic. Rosie’s Book Review Team has been extremely kind to me over the years. These wonderful ladies take a chance on my books and post honest reviews. I’m thrilled that those reviews have all been favorable.

If you’re an author, you need to know about this group. What better way to check out their site than to check out the five-star review Robbie Cheadle gave to The Yak Guy Project. I’ll be monitoring the comments and hope to see you there. Feel free to share the post on your various social media accounts.

  1. Hope the dogs stay comfortable in this heat. I joined Bookbub recently and still don’t know what I’m doing. Not even sure I did it right. Good luck there.

  2. I think skipping camping was a good call.
    I’m also curious about what lo country, or was it low country? means out there in the west. Here, it’s portions of the coastal south which are under sea level. (Bayous, inlets, that sorta thing.) Inspired lo country boil, which is good eatin πŸ˜›

  3. Sounds like your cancelled trip is for the best. Shame you won’t get to go camping, but the dogs have to come first.

    I get Bookbub eMails, but haven’t gotten around to getting myself signed up on there as an author. Honestly, I haven’t used it for much beyond taking advantage of book deals.

  7. Glad you and the bulldogs are staying home. Enjoy your writing time. I’m on BookBub too, but haven’t figured it out yet. I followed you and retweeted the review on Rosie’s blog. Yay for 5 stars!

  10. I’d heard of Bookbub as a mailing list, but didn’t realize it had much of a website.

  11. Yep, I agree. Too hot to go camping. I went and followed you on Book Bub. It turns out I have two followers over there. πŸ™‚ I forget about it and forget to push it or check on it. That was a great review for The Yak Guy. I shared it. Hope you have a great writing weekend, Craig!
