Cover Me!


Can you believe it's March already?

I can't. Why didn't time go so fast in places like algebra class? The dentist's chair? Ya know?

In a couple of week's it will be St. Patrick's Day.
Color me GREEN!

And then it will be April. The month for Arlee Bird's A-Z Blog Challenge. How many of you will be participating this year? Oooh, I see lots of raised hands :)

If you haven't participated before, I urge you to do so. Yes, it's a lot of work. But the rewards are huge. I met many wonderful new bloggers and learned many new things. It's a great community to be part of.

Last year was my first year to be a part of this fun annual event. This year, however, I'm taking a blog break instead for the full month of April. More about that in a later post.

Now I would like to enlist your help.

Who wants to participate in the cover reveal for my new book, SECRETS OF HONOR?

A couple of weeks ago, I shared this little bit about the story:
He's hot.
And she's a doozy.
They've known each other for years.
But on this one particular night . . . .


And now I'll share this:
Sometimes, a woman has to do what a woman has to do . . . even when she knows she shouldn't.

I'm posting a linky list below for you to sign up. The more the merrier!

The awesome cover, designed by Linda Kage of Kage Covers, will be revealed here on my blog on Monday, June 2.

You're invited to post the information on your blog anytime during June, as long as it is on June 2 or later. I will provide all the necessary details and information to you on the Thursday or Friday prior to the reveal date. The last day the cover reveal signup will be open is Friday, May 23.

Much thanks and appreciation to all who participate!

I'm firmly in the 'I can't believe it's March' camp! Crazy.

DAVID WALSTON said...

Count me in, I love reveals!
And, yes time is ticking away!

Stephen Tremp said...

I'm signing up right now!

I wish I could finally do A-Z this year, but I am on a two week vacation in the middle of April so I'll have to wait until 2015.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

No A to Z for me this year, but I enjoyed it the past three years.

VR Barkowski said...

No A to Z for me this year. I can only seem to manage it every other year, but count me in for the reveal!

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

It's March? :)

I love watching A-Z...from a distance! It does look like a lot of fun, though.

Robin said...

I am signing up. Would you be interested in submitting something for my All Things Writing feature (on Monday or Tuesday of any given week) to go along with the cover reveal? It can be about anything writing-related. Just let me know. You can email me at rarichards68 at gmail dot com.

Julie Luek said...

I'm passing on A-Z this year in favor of another project I'm working on in one of my blogs, but it's always fun to read posts. :) Hope you enjoy your April break. I just took one and it was good to have.

Tara said...

Always happy to help you out, Carol. :)

Rachna Chhabria said...

No A to Z for me this year too :(

Elephant's Child said...

I will watch/read/absorb A to Z with glee. Participation? Not this year. And my lazy self adds or probably any year.

Carol Kilgore said...

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one passing on A-Z this year.

I'm also glad to know I'm not the only one who feels like I'm on a bullet train through time.

And thanks to everyone who has signed up so far for the SECRETS OF HONOR cover reveal. Much appreciated!

Ava Quinn said...

I'm in for the cover reveal!

I'm seriously considering the A-Z this year. It's just at a bad time of year for me, but I think I may do it anyway. :)

David Oliver said...

I'm taking a bit of time off from blogging, just trying to keep up with the blogs I follow. If I'm back before your reveal date is up, I'll be happy to help.

I like doozies. :)

Nas said...

Always happy to help out.

Medeia Sharif said...

I signed up. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Ava - The A-Z is loads of fun, but it is work. Definitely. I think you get out of it what you put in.

David - Breaks are necessary, especially after we've blogged a while. Doozies are good :)

Nas and Medeia - Thank you both!



Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I would take part but I am too lazy to do so........lol

Jemi Fraser said...

Can't wait!!!

Helena said...

I'm lucky number 13 on your cover reveal. Secrets of Honor sounds like fun.

Shelley Munro said...

I'm happy to help.

LR said...

Yay for St. Patrick's Day

I've never dared to sign up for A-Z. Maybe will make an exception this year?

We'll see : )

Cathrina Constantine said...

I'd love to help with your new book, Carol. Last year was my first time with A to Z too, totally unprepared. This year I'm half-way through my posts. *phew*

Linda Kage said...

My kiddo is ready for St. Patrick's Day! I'm just ready for Spring already! So excited (but kind of nervous) for your cover reveal. I hope everyone likes it!

Linda G. said...

I'd love to be a part of your cover reveal! :)

Julie Flanders said...

Count me in. Looking forward to it!

Carol Kilgore said...

Jo-Anne - I'm laughing. With all your kiddos and family, I know you can't be lazy at all! You are the busiest woman I know.

Jemi, Shelley, Linda G, and Julie - Thanks for signing up!

Helena - Yay! I like #13, too.

LR - You may be smart :)

Cathrina - Thanks. You're brave going back for seconds LOL!

Linda K - What's not to like? It's gorgeous!

Janie Junebug said...

I thought I clicked, but I don't see myself. Maybe I forgot how to read, or perhaps it's true, as X said, that I have no life and need to get one.

Love,
Janie

Melissa said...

You've been a busy little bee.

I'm in! :)

Lynda R Young said...

More than happy to help

Jennifer Shirk said...

I will help!

I know I can't believe it's March either!!!

Bish Denham said...

March? Are you sure?

I'd be delighted to help with your cover reveal!

klahanie said...

Hi Carol,

I'm going to be away from my computer for quite a lot over the next few weeks. However, what I will do it take the liberty of sharing your posting in regards to your cover reveal.

As for the A to Z, Arlee Bird has dubbed me, "The Official Anti-A to Z Spokesman." I've done past satirical posts on the darned thing. The irony was it actually got more awareness to the alphabet challenge. Sigh! :)

Michelle Wallace said...

All signed up for your reveal!
I'm doing A to Z again... I confess that I'm an A to Z addict! I love the community atmosphere... the buzz...

Michelle Wallace said...

Oh I almost forgot...
HAPPY WORLD READ ALOUD DAY!

LD Masterson said...

I'm in.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Can't WAIT for your new book! Your teasers are absolutely intriguing.

Lexa Cain said...

I can't wait to see your new cover! I'm a little sad you're taking an April break - I'll miss your posts, especially the funny 10-things ones. I'm terrified the A-Z will take all my time away from my WIP. How will I manage? Argh!

Carol Kilgore said...

Janie - You're the incognito one :)

Melissa - Always buzzing!

Lynda, Jennifer, Bish and LD - Much appreciated! Thanks.

Gary - Thanks much for the Facebook push.

Michelle - I love the A-Z community atmosphere, too. But this year is out for me. Have fun!

Susan - Glad you like them. Stay tuned!

Lexa - Have fun with A-Z. You'll be so busy you won't have time to miss me :)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I can't commit to anything in June yet. I won't know until closer to the date. You can email me closer to the date and I'll have a better idea. It might clash with something else that I know is happening that day. Otherwise, I'd be happy to help out!

I still haven't participated in A-Z, and this year will be no exception. I just don't have the time. Deadlines come first, as do my other commitments.

Empty Nest Insider said...

Looking forward to your new book, Carol! Count me in, and you're invited to do another guest post anytime!

Julie

Carol Kilgore said...

Stina - I hear you exactly about A-Z. We'll talk later about the reveal.

Julie - Thanks...and thanks! I'll be in touch.

Rula Sinara said...

I'm in! Can't wait to see it!

Carol Kilgore said...

Rula - Cool! I think you'll love it!

Milo James Fowler said...

I'll help with the tweeting/FBing/G+ing -- send me a copy of the cover and the date you'd like me to spam the interwebs.

Carol Kilgore said...

Thanks, Milo. Will do!

Theresa Milstein said...

Carol, I think A to Z is cool. I did it one year, but I won't do it this year. April is going to be too busy! I'll be reading plenty of them though.

Carol Kilgore said...

Theresa - Good for you! They'll be everywhere.
