1. I'll be at here on October 14th:

I'll also do a book signing afterwards. I plan on bringing copies of GODDESSES CAN WAIT and a couple of NO MORE GODDESSES. Plus, some swag!

2. Just got the galley of CROSS FIRE!

Need to go over it and write up an acknowledgement and dedication. Can't wait to see the cover of this one!


3. Also working on revisions of CANDLE. Hope to be able to query this out by the end of next month!

4. One sad note: Sunni pulled his one foot and hasn't been walking very well. Took him to the vet and he had an xray. Doctor said the good news is it's not broken or fractured. The not too good news is he's not walking without using his beak to get around. Doctor gave me some inflammatory meds to help with the pain. Please, send some positive, healthy vibes his way.

5. I was beyond excited when Penguin teen sent me DEAR MARTIN:

1. First, I want to share this amazing review I got:



Do you consider yourself “normal” or do you have exciting adventures, say with goddesses, for example? Even if you aren’t acquainted with gods or goddesses you can still have an adventure by reading Author Kim Baccellia’s latest novel GODDESSES CAN WAIT. And let me tell you, this author will take you on a wild adventure that you won’t soon forget.

Jordan Lake’s evening starts out dining with her family and best friend, Selena Garza, a simple family affair. Jordan is remembering her recent encounter with two Egyptian goddesses, that thankfully had a happy ending. Now, she just wants to be normal, if that is possible. When Jordan’s grandmother joins them for dinner with a gift for Jordan her life changes, however, and she soon finds herself on a flight to Paris, along with Selena and Jordan’s grandmother. Jordan is ecstatic. Images of Audrey Hepburn (her heroine), the River Seine, and macaroons dance in her head. But she also has an une…

1. Sorry I didn't write a Friday Five post last week. Was busy finishing up copy edits on the sequel to CROSSED OUT! Can't wait for it to come out!

My sequel has more paranormal happenings and some spells. I had a lot of fun writing this one!


2. On the other news, got a couple emails with charges for things I didn't buy. One from a Staples in New Mexico for $322 and another one from the UK for $200. Had to get copies of my credit report and also put freezes on my accounts. I'm afraid someone might have opened a credit card in my maiden name.

Then to make matters worse, found out that Equifax had a mega breach. Even more fishy was that some executives sold stock right before disclosing what happened:

So will be watching accounts. Recommend that everyone at least get a copy of their credit reports to see if their credit has been compromised. Better safe than sorry.

3. Did get some mor…
