Happy April Fool's Day, and I hope everyone had a smashing Easter holiday! Life is getting back to normal, slowly but surely. I'm about halfway unpacked at the new house, so you can all imagine what a mess it is in here right now, LOL. Still, April is already shaping up to be a fantastically productive month, I just hope I have the energy to keep up.
Our friends at Savvy Authors are hosting another wildly exhilarating Boot Camp writing marathon which is sure to keep everyone on track for the month. I’m not participating, but I will be hosting and attending sprints, cheering others on and squeezing in some work of my own. It's very last minute now, but you can probably still sign up and join a team if you'd like to give it a shot.
On top of that, the site is also featuring a Pitch Perfect event where you can rub virtual elbows with and learn a few things from some wonderful agents and publishers. Don’t miss this fabulous opportunity to pitch your future best-selling novel!
I’m sure there are plenty of other fun things happening in April, but I’ll be too busy being buried under a pile of boxes or wrist deep in paint to notice. Shout out in the comments if you have any super events or news to share.
Speaking of sharing, I simply had to post this video from my current favorite group, Chic Gamine. I’ve needed plenty of music to keep me motivated during the move and into the settling stage, and this Canadian Motown-inspired quintet has been just the thing. Yes, it really is just four singers and a percussionist, and they totally rock. Enjoy!
