Sunday Post: Book Pre-order Campaigns & Giveaways Galore – 2/16/20

February 16, 2020 Sunday Post 50

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 returned from the SCBWI conference in New York on Sunday night! The conference was fantastic! Lots of inspiration; plus, it was wonderful to meet with writerly friends!! I actually headed off to another SCBWI event yesterday! (This one was a meeting for the Illinois reps and a going-away celebration for our previous regional advisor.)

Meanwhile, my youngest played in a Special Olympics basketball tournament yesterday, and their team won, so they get to go to State in March! (I actually ended up missing the tournament because of the SCBWI event and my husband is out of town for work, but my mom was there to cheer him on!) And my younger daughter finished up her gymnastics season and started track. Busy, as always!

We also continued work on the house this week. My husband finished the new trim around two of the windows in the dining room (see the pic below), which was a big accomplishment since he stained and built the trim to fit this mission style himself. And then I painted the pantry and closet and then painted the area around those areas the new color so that we can hang the doors there and get them out of the hallway! This project is definitely getting done in a piecemeal manner, but it’s getting done!

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

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

Book Haul:

For Review:

I received The Deadly Omens by Jennifer Bell from Crown Books for Young Readers. The inventive cover is illustrated by Kirbi Fagan. This series looks super cute, but I’ll confess that I sigh a little when I receive a book in the mail that’s the third in a series I haven’t read. Still, I’m thankful to Penguin Random House for sending me so many delightful reads!

Purchased:

I purchased Pie in the Sky and The Bridge Home at the conference. Both of these were Golden Kite winners! I also purchased Race to the Sun on an excursion to The Strand Bookstore!

Free:

At the conference this past weekend, those of us who attended the Golden Kite Awards all received a signed copy of Max Einstein: Rebels With A Cause by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein. (James Patterson also spoke at the awards!) The book is illustrated by Beverly Johnson.

    Yeah for a successful writing conference and for your son’s team! And, how lucky he was to have grandma there to cheer him on. That trim looks fantastic! You may have to wait awhile, but I can already tell you home will look incredible when everything is done

  2. Erica Metcalf

    Oooh! The trim looks amazing!! My husband and I were working on hanging curtain rods and curtains this weekend. We got two done and then stopped. The first one went well. The second one we didn’t think through and once the curtain is on it, it’s going to be a major pain to get it back off… So we’ll have to remove the whole thing, spackle, paint, and restart someday. The third, we started and quickly decided to wait for another day. I would have never guessed hanging curtain rods would be SO frustrating! lol

      Sometimes the simplest (seeming) jobs can turn into a HUGE pain! We did trim in the family room last night, and it took way longer than we expected! I love all the changes, but I’ll be happy to have all this home improvement finally done!!

  3. Danielle Hammelef

    The window trim is gorgeous and I love the wall color too. Home projects DIY always take longer than expected.

  4. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Oh wow! The trim is gorgeous! Glad everything is going well for the kiddos! Congrats to them all on their sporting achievements and best of luck in the next steps!

    Nice new reads too! All new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them all!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

      Yeah, slow and steady is the only way it’s all getting done. We were going to hire someone to do part of the painting, but we keep running into circumstances where it’s like, “Well, in order to do this, we really need to do this other thing first…” and so now it’s looking more and more like we’re just going to end up doing it all ourselves. Oh well!

    Aww, congrats on the conference and the Special Olympics win! that’s awesome. Love the window pic- you guys did a great job with that! It looks nice.

    Your new books look fun too. 🙂

  6. Sophie

    Congrats on your youngest Nicole! It’s amazing! You must be a very proud mama! And I would love to attend such conference. Enjoy your week (and the snow judging by the view through your window) 😉

  7. Katie @ Doing Dewey

    Aww, thanks so much for including me in your recap post! I really appreciate it 🙂 I had a lot of fun writing that post and I don’t think I’d have come up with it without your discussion challenge.
