Indie Girl March Hop & What's Up for Spring?!

The Model Position tour is over. If you missed any posts the tour schedule is here. Thanks so much to the lovely Kel over at Literary Nook, and my publishers over at Inkspell, who both helped tour my novella. You did an admirable job. I've made some great new online friends and have a fledgling, but growing flock of new readers. Thanks, readers!!! 
In the next week or two I'll post a couple of my fave top 10 lists, and feature some authors.
In the meantime, there's tons of new activity pushing into the light like the purple crocuses below.

Indie Girl March Hop is going strong until the end of March! The brainchild of Escaping One Book at a Time's Tiffany M., it's a festival of interviews, giveaways and posts of great indie authors. Pop over to Indie Girl March Hop and enter the giveaway to win FREE COPIES of my futuristic thriller, Ruby's Fire and Model Position, my romance novella.

I'm over at A Little R & R today, and Ren's running a great giveaway, so hey, more freebies to be had!!!   Here's the link.

April brings flowers and also the A to Z challenge. This April I am posting about fabulous fantasy creatures with my Untethered Realms buddies. My days are H and R, but every day will being a cool new critter with a cool new picture! So think about following our Untethered Realms blog to catch lots of these posts.

It feels good to actually have a moment to write a new blog post! I've missed all of you. So, what are you up to this spring?
