Sunday Post: Book Pre-order Campaigns & Giveaways Galore – 6/23/19

June 23, 2019 Sunday Post 30

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.

This past week on FYFA (and in my life):

(I thought I posted this in the morning, but apparently, I didn’t actually hit the post button. So it’s going up Sunday night. Sigh…)

This week my family all went to visit Illinois Institute of Technology with my older daughter. We were fairly certain this was the school she wanted most because they have a data science master’s program (which is what she wants to go into) and they also have what’s called a co-terminal degree program where you can actually get your masters at an accelerated rate. We weren’t sure if it would be harder for her to get into that program because she’s taking her first two years of college while she’s basically finishing up high school. But, we were excited to hear that they practically guaranteed she’d get in and she’d qualify for their highest merit scholarship (which is important, since the school is private and definitely a lot more expensive than state schools). After that meeting with the counselor and our tour of the school, we were all pretty much convinced that this is the place for her. So, it looks like she’ll have her master’s at age 21, which is sort of crazy (but par for the course with this crazy smart kid).

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:

Pre-order Goodies:

I got “Memento” for pre-ordering Aurora Rising and I was so excited to get it in the mail!!

 Great Discussions/Goings On Around the Blogosphere:

I had a draft of this post written with some things to share here, but somehow it mystappeared… I have no idea what happened. The best thing I can guess is that I somehow was accidentally editing my last Sunday Post instead of a new one (I usually copy and paste as a starting point) and then I closed it and told it not to save changes? I have no idea! Anyway, I have less posts and giveaways to share because I somehow lost some.  🙁

    That is amazing news about your daughter, and it’s nice that they offer an accelerated masters program (less school, less debt). My daughter decided upon analytics during her undergrad, but at least she found a compressed masters program (10 intense months vs two years). It makes a huge difference in the amount of money spent, and you can join the workforce sooner too.

      Yes, that’s exactly what we’re thinking. College costs are pretty outrageous, so the earlier she can get her degree the better! She thinks she might want to get a PhD sometime, and that goal is much more achievable if she’s already got her master’s early on (and can start earning money earlier to pay for it).

    That’s fantastic news about your daughter, Nicole! Not only getting in… but qualifying for that scholarship? Wow!! And a Masters at 21… I am in awe!

    So glad I saw the pre-order info for Call It What You Want! The offer of bonus content from Letters to the Lost & More Than We Can Tell has me sold. 🙂

      She’s sort of crazy smart, especially in the math dept—I took pre-calc my junior year of high school and never took another math class in my life. She just finished Calc 3 at age 16. Um, yeah, I have no idea where she got that from. (Her aunt’s an actuary–I guess the math genes slid sideways). LOL!

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      Yes, you’d think I’d have that process down by now, but apparently not. I was in a rush to finish the post before church because I knew I’d be gone all day. Then when I got home at night and went to go do some replying and commenting back I saw that the post wasn’t up! Oops!

    Good luck to your daughter with the Illinois Institute of Technology with my older. I’m in awe that she’s taking her first two years of college while finishing up high school! A master’s by age 21! The apple doesn’t fall far huh? “:)

    Your daughter does sound crazy smart. She’ll be so young to already have her Masters! I wish her luck in her studies ahead!

    I hate it when my posting goes wrong. It’s worse when you don’t actually know what happened. Still, you have a lot of awesome giveaways here! Thanks for sharing. I’ll have to come back to them because I’m dead tired. Off to bed! 🙂

  5. Dani @ Perspective of a Writer

    WOW! Go your daughter. And how neat that she already knows what school and program and degree she wants. Still its great that she’ll save so much on schooling. And a PHd too! I just couldn’t be in school that long. More power to her. ❤️
