Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 6/26/16

June 26, 2016 Sunday Post 16

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.

Last week on FYFA (and in my life):

Managed to get around the blogosphere a bit more this week, and I caught up on the posts linked up to the Discussion Challenge. It felt good to hop around a bit – but then I realized I hadn’t replied to comments all week! Oops!

I started my first class toward a copyediting certificate at UC San Diego this week as well. I think it will be great to learn some new things and it will also help my credibility as an editor. I feel like I need to start making more of an effort with actually promoting myself when it comes to editing – I’ve been happy with it being part-time because with homeschooling I can’t really put in full-time hours, but it would be nice to be able to expand eventually. In an effort to get myself out there more, I joined the Editorial Freelancers Association (and I plan to take some courses through them) plus I’m getting my copyeditor’s certificate.

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week:

  • Nogiku Series – New Cover Reveal & Giveaway – Still time to enter to win a bundle of S.J. Pajonas’s books
  • 738 Days by Stacey Kade – Review
  • Moonchild by Kate L. Mary – Review
  • Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods – Review – This is my mom’s first solo review on the blog. Check it out!
  • My Top Ten Addictions – Let’s Discuss! – I often post this list for authors, so I thought I should tell you mine!

Next week on FYFA:

  • This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab – Review
  • The Memory Book by Lara Avery – Spotlight & Giveaway
  • Zero by Morgan Dark – Review & Giveaway
  • Let’s Discuss – something bookish! 🙂

Free:

Sorry, this one isn’t free anymore, but I’ve read some other of Boyce’s books and enjoyed them, so I snagged it while it was a freebie.

      I figure it’s time to get a little more serious with the editing. I’d love it if I could eventually make it full-time once the kids are either back in public school or more self-sufficient. (Right now, my HS son is pretty self-sufficient except that I need to drive him places.)

    That’s exciting you are going for a copy editing certificate and taking lots of courses! I’m sure it will really help expand your business. I was just thinking recently that it would be nice to learn graphic design, but I don’t know how I’d go about that…it would make more sense to actually get a degree, but I already have a lot of loans so I don’t know.

      Yeah, it’s nice that I have the freedom of not really NEEDING the money I make from my editing – so I can spend the money I make on blogging and classes and such. (And books – there’s always books.) 🙂 I’m aware I’m in a pretty lucky situation, though. For me, the job is more about having an identity outside my kids. That can be hard sometimes!

    I think it’s cool that you’re going for a certificate in editing! I bet you’ll learn a lot and have fun doing it too. You were great to work with and I know Summer Haikus came out great in the end because of your help. 🙂 Thanks for featuring the Nogiku covers this week! I see a few people that commented that had never heard of the series, so I’m glad they saw them on your blog for the first time! 🙂

      How has that turned out for you? Have you gotten any work from it, or are you really not pursuing it much? I think this might be a good time for me to get more serious about my editing, but then I get busy with things for the kids and think, “Well, maybe soon.” I could probably say soon forever. 🙂
