Links and Line-ups

Next week is the big day for Apocalypse Rising, the day whether it sinks, swims, or goes in the pot for Sunday dinner. I'm as nervous as a cat in a room full of rottweilers. (Not my rotties. They like cats.) But even sweet rotties look intimidating before you get to know them.

Monday, I have an EXTRA-SPECIAL guest on my blog. I was over the moon when my editor, Deborah Nemeth agreed to be interviewed.  I absolutely adore Deb. When you read this interview, you'll know why I think so highly of her. There are going to be tons of tips for subbing success. 

You won't want to miss Monday. (Oh, yeah, I have a book coming out that day too. :grin:)

In Linky News, my friend KS Augustin has become so prolific she's split into two. (I can barely manage one personality.) She's got two books coming out soon, War Games and Check Your Luck Agency (no links yet) and an anthology called Seeing Stars that comes out May 9.

Whatever she's drinking, I'll have two. Kaz's newest personality is as Cara d'Bastian. Isn't that a great name? This is the author name you'll see for the 'Check Your Luck' series. She's even started a new blog for her alter ego. I hope you'll check it out.

Not writing related, but still a subject close to my heart is food.

Here's a tuna-noodle casserole from my friend, Sherri Meyer.

A Marinated Cucumber and Onion Salad from The "Cent"sible Sawyer.

And a Salt and Vinegar Roasted Potatoes from For The Love Of Food.

Check out the links and add your own if you have any to share. What goodies have you found on the ether this week?


Sherri said...

Have the blog love all scheduled :) You know I'm dying to get my hands on AR, right? :)

Thanks for the shout-out!

Sherri said...

Oh, and YUM for the other food links...thanks. I just bookmarked them.

Maria Zannini said...

Sherri: Since you've been with me nearly since the beginning, I'm really counting on your feedback.

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

Ooh! I'm excited about the interview on monday!

Sherri said...

Even though I'm bias? ;P

Have a great weekend Maria!

Lynn Colt said...

Good luck with your launch next week! I'm sure it will go swimmingly, not sinkingly :)

Angelina Rain said...

I can’t wait for that interview. I hear such wonderful things about that editor I can’t wait to learn more about her.

Maria Zannini said...

Sarah: You won't be disappointed. Deb gave me a great interview.

Sherri: You, biased?

Lynn: From your lips to God's ears. Thanks.

Angelina: Deb is one of those editors you feel lucky to know.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Looking forward to the interview but very excited about AR's release. Get ready for the wave of great reviews.

Jenny Schwartz said...

So much good news! Congrats and good luck on the forthcoming release of Apocalypse Rising.

And Kaz is now 2 people? Lordy me, is the world ready?

As for Deb visiting ... can't wait! She is a super editor, one of the best teachers, too. I've learned so much from working with her.

Maria Zannini said...

Linda: I suspect I will be suffering a few sleepless nights as reviews come in.


Jenny: Ref: Is the world ready for Kaz?
I seriously doubt it, but that's never stopped her before.

Ref: Deb
She's amazing. I was jumping up and down like a nut when I found out we'd be working together.

Cate Masters said...

Very cool. I will have to write myself a note to remember to check back Monday (I think I may have a clone, in fact, but she's the one who remembers everything important!)
Off to check out those potatoes - hubby thinks mayo is made by evil scientists with no taste.

Ellie said...

Apocalypse Rising will be a rising star - I know it! I'll be there waving the banner on launch day. Incidentally, my copy of Touch of Fire arrived last week. In June I'm only reading books written by my blogging friends.

Thank you for the awesome links as well.

Ellie Garratt

Madeleine said...

Wow what a great scheduled. Congrats and Yay to you! :O)

Maria Zannini said...

Cate: You mean mayo isn't evil?

Ellie: That touches my heart that you would order Touch Of Fire. I hope you enjoy it.

Madeleine: It ought to be an interesting week.

Kaz Augustin said...

Thanks for the shout-out, M! All the best for your launch next week.

And I heard that remark, Jammy Schwartz!
