Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 10/15/17

Sunday Post 19

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): We had a week off from our homeschool co-op this week, which SHOULD mean that I got lots of work on my book done, right? Well, somehow the week slipped away much more quickly than I expected it to. Still not sure where it all went. I’ve pretty much determined that the ONLY way I can get writing done is if I go to Starbucks. If I’m home, I end up doing… other stuff. Random other stuff. I did get a bit of writing done, and I also worked on my latest editing project. Should be done with that one this… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Between homeschooling and an editing project I’m currently working on, my week was packed! But I still found time to attend an Adam Silvera/Lauren Oliver event with my mom to celebrate her birthday. Very fun! On the 11th, NetGalley is featuring me on their blog for their YA Blogger Spotlight! Make sure you check it out!!

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): How is September almost over? Seriously, I’m baffled by the passage of time lately. This week… things happened. I don’t remember what, but I remember that I did stuff. Oh, wait—I do remember one thing. My daughter got 13 inches of her hair cut off so we could donate it to Locks of Love. She always gets comments on her long hair, so it was tough to let it go, but she loves her new shorter style. Makes so many things easier! Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week: Top Ten Books on My Fall… Read more »

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): This week was back to being crazy busy because I added three new classes to my teaching schedule at our homeschool co-op. Our co-op has some 32-week classes and some 24-week classes, and three of the four classes I teach are 24-week. (I was already teaching One Year Adventure Novel, and now I added two acting classes and a middle grade language arts class). I’m teaching poetry in language arts to start off, which is lots of fun—maybe it will inspire me to do those poetry reviews I was talking about before. I also did some editing on the first… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Today I’m headed to the 6th Annual Novel Cuisine Luncheon, which is organized by author Liza Wiemer, Heidi Zweifel of YA Bibliophile and Jaime & Erin Arkin of Fiction Fare. I went to this event last year and it was tons of fun. They make all sorts of dishes from different books—it’s quite a spread! Plus, we can bring books to donate and/or trade, which my husband loves because that means two giant piles of books make their way out of our bedroom. (And I bring back way less than I donate—I promise!) Here’s what you may have missed on the… Read more »

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): Not much new to tell you this week. I’m steadily working on an editing project, which means I haven’t had much time to work on editing my own book. Hoping to get to it some this week, since we have some time off of school, but we shall see! Other than that, it was just… a week. A busy one, but just normal busy. My One Year Adventure Novel class is off to a fun start. The kids have some great synopses, so I’m excited about what the year will bring! Here’s what you may have missed on the blog… Read more »

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’m writing this post while in the car on the way to my in-laws’ 50th anniversary celebration weekend. We are going to have a fun family weekend at a lake house (though it’s looking like the weather might not be as cooperative as we would hope). My big news for this week is that I got feedback from Naomi Colthurst, the editor from Penguin Children’s (in the UK) that I won an edit from through the Grenfell Tower auction. She called me on Thursday, and I am beyond excited because her feedback was so incredibly positive. Which isn’t to say… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): I’m back! It’s funny because I realized that the heading above should say “This past month on FYFA.” I haven’t put up a Sunday post since 7/23! This is a definite first. Out of curiosity, I decided to take a look at my Sunday Post history, and since I started posting them in June of 2013, I’ve only missed five Sundays! (Before this past month, of course, when I just missed three more.) That seems kind of incredible to me. And this is also the longest blogging break I’ve ever taken. It feels a little freeing, but also very… Read more »

This past week on FYFA (and in my life): Another busy week in the Hewitt household! I finished that edit of the book I’ve been working on. Keep your eyes peeled for Acceptance by Trish Beninato since I’ll probably be featuring it here on the blog at some point! We also picked our daughter up from camp and dropped my youngest off for the bus for his camp. And, most exciting, our Japanese exchange student got here yesterday! We’re really excited to get to know him! Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week: Do You Follow Authors You Haven’t Read? Let’s Discuss. Bite-Sized Reviews: Crash Land… Read more »
