Scrambling to Keep Up!

Since I've returned from California, I've been scrambling to keep up with...everything!  I  can really relate to the 3 Doors Down song, Running Out of Days, from their Away From the Sun album.  Especially these lines: "All these little things in life and they all create this haze. Too many things to get done and I'm running out of days."  Yep, I hear you!

Last week I did get my email newsletter out on Wednesday the 13th. ICE STUDY Part 7 was included :)  If you're a subscriber and didn't get the issue - check your spam folder.  And if it's not there, then you need to add this email addy to your approved list: Maria_V._Snyder_Author@mail.vresp.com  

I've also been scrambling to reply to my emails.  So if you've sent me an email, I'm about a month behind, but I will answer.  I don't like to be so far behind, but I feel better about it after I saw Kelley Armstrong's post on Facebook that she had 666 unanswered emails in her inbox! 

I also picked - or rather Random.org picked a winner for a signed copy of  PERSONAL DEMONS.  Congrats to Crystal!!!  (Crystal you need to send me your mailing addy - please send it to my email maria@mariavsnyder.com)

A few more housekeeping things :)  I did an interview over at YA Book Nerd that was fun.  And tomorrow she's going to have a contest to win a signed copy of SPY GLASS.  Here's the link: http://yabooknerd.blogspot.com/2010/10/chatting-with-maria-v-snyder.html

And a friend of mine has posted a review of SPY GLASS that has generated an interesting discussion.  I sent her a few comments about it and I think she's going to post those as well.  Here's the link: http://calico-reaction.livejournal.com/190126.html 

Stay tuned - I'm planning to do a post about my LA/San Diego trip and one about POISON STUDY's fifth birthday that will have give aways!

And here's a question - what do you think of this color?  I thought the white is too hard to read, but it could be my aging eyes!

  1. Lots of giveaways? WOO! I'm excited!

    I like the purple better too. It is easier to read.

    I am loving Ice study!! I wish it was a book so I didn't have to wait, and I could just devour it.

  2. Yay! Poison Study is 5 years old! Wow! Time flies! I remember reading that in the car when I was on a roadtrip to my aunt's and I was in my senior year of high school. Oh my. And now I'm done with college! Time really flies by!!

    I don't mind the color of the text. The white one can hurt my eyes after reading for so long, then again maybe it's because I'm on the computer too much! ;)

  4. Love the purple! It's very readable. There are a couple of blogs that I no longer read because I'm dazzled after scrolling down. :P

  5. I love the darker color. The white is a harsh on my eyes. :D

  7. No comment RE the color. I think the Blue of "Post a Comment" is the easiest on MY old eyes! But boy-oh-boy, I agree that October is a busy time. It seems to have flown...and I'm hardly writing at all. Hope all's well with you!

  8. I just don't like the pink. XD I've never been a fan of pink, but that's just me.

    No worries on scrambling to keep up! We understand, and we'll be here for you when you get there! :P Have fun with your life, and enjoy!

  9. Sounds like you've got lots going on! October is insane.
    The white is kinda bright/ harsh...

  10. My goodness, I almost can't believe it's been 5 years since Poison Study was published! And yet I never get tired of reading it. I love the Glass trilogy, but the Study trilogy will always have a special place on my bookshelves, especially Poison Study.

    Looking forward to hearing about your California trip! :D
