Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of FUN STUFF in this week's post. So let's get to it.
Yes, I'm taking another blog break for the month of April. I'll also be spending less time on Facebook and Twitter, but I'll still be at each a couple of times a week. You may also see me pop up with a comment on a few of the A-Z blogs every once in a while. Some of them sound too cool to miss!
Why am I taking a break? Read on!
The top ten reasons I'm taking a blog break in April:
9. I'm too lazy to participate in A-Z this year
8. We're hosting a crawfish boil thingie mid month
7. I need a vacation
5. My current manuscript is due to my editor by May 1
4. My dogs told me we need more play time
3. So did Live-In Handyman
2. We're going to the beach for a week
And the #1 reason I'm taking a blog break in April:
1. Did I mention Edit...Edit...Edit!
You can see for yourself.
Melissa Maygrove's Cover Reveal for COME BACK
I'm so thrilled to be participating in my friend's cover reveal for her debut novel. I know just how excited she is, and I'm sending her loads of good wishes for a huge success!
Sometimes a single choice alters the course of a person's life forever.
Left behind by everyone she loves...
Rebecca Garvey had the promise of a California future dreams are made of, until the wagon train her family was traveling with left her behind. Now she’s slowly dying in the wilderness, abandoned and stripped of her self-worth. Once the shock of her desertion turns to embittered despair, she doesn't want to be found. Then a handsome stranger challenges her convictions and changes her mind.
Headed for Texas, chased by the demons of his past...
Seth Emerson knows exactly what he wants. Working to save for a cattle ranch of his own keeps him busy and keeps his pain buried. Rescuing a stubborn woman from the hills of New Mexico Territory isn't part of his plan—but she’s exactly what he needs.
Making greater sacrifices than either of them could foresee...
Seth and Rebecca set off on a risky journey and a quest for truth, each healing the other’s love-starved soul along the way. Will they give in to their growing attraction? Or will they honor their commitments when Seth returns Rebecca to civilization... and her betrothed?

Guest Bloggers Wanted
I have guest spots beginning late May, and I would love to host you here at the Tiki Hut. Drop me an email at tikihuttime AT gmail DOT com and we'll chat. Or message me on Facebook or Twitter.
Depending on when I finish my portion of the edits, you may notice a little cleanup around the old Tiki Hut. No major rehab, just a little spring cleaning. BUT ... my website is undergoing a complete renovation. When I come back, I'll have news of a new contest going on over there starting in May. The site will have the same tired look for a little while before the new one goes live.
