The Sunday Post

 

The Sunday Post* is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received, and let you know what is coming up for the week on our blog.

 

*The Sunday Post was inspired by the Story Siren’s In My Mailbox feature. Kimba wanted it to be about more than a book haul for ARCS and thus created the Sunday Post.

It’s been another busy week. I’ve been editing and reading and doing the stay/work-at-home day-to-day stuff. The kids are in school and so far having a great year. (Yes, I know it’s only September, but they are really enjoying school. So, I count that as a win!) I have successfully made a sourdough starter and I’ve been having fun trying out new recipes to use the discarded starter on. Crackers are the best! I made my first loaf of sourdough bread from this starter yesterday. I can’t wait to try it today! I’m currently reading Wendy Darling–Seas by Colleen Oakes, and I am loving it! Look for my review by the end of the month.

Interested in our editing services? Here’s what one happy customer thinks:

“I recently hired EFC Services for a final proofread of my book A Mother’s Choice.

I was pleased by EFC’s quick and efficient turnaround as well as their reasonable prices. I definitely recommend EFC and will be using them for future editing needs.”

This past Friday, I, along with a few members of my book club, had the chance to meet an author, Brock Booher, whose book, Healing Stone, we read a few months ago. Mr. Booher also wrote a guest post for EFC, and I recently worked with him on his next book by doing a manuscript critique. I can’t wait to read the final version. Anyway, we had such a great time chatting with Mr. Booher, hearing about his experiences, chatting about his book, and laughing quite a bit. It was an awesome experience. Here is a picture of us with Mr. Booher.

We would also like to thank everyone for entering our Blogoversary giveaway and for all of you well wishes and comments! You guys are the best!! =) I will be choosing the winners of our Blogoversary giveaway later today.

This week has been crazy! But I am ready for another week. I’m still in a bit of a reading slump, which is why there aren’t many reviews posted this week. But I’m slowly making my way out. I decided to pick up an old favorite. Harry Potter. Just diving back into that world makes me happy. I had a Skype call with an author to go over my manuscript critique of his current work-in-progress. It was a great conversation. I love the process of discussing various plot points and characters and trying to make them better, different. We are adding a new contributing reviewer this week. Be on the lookout for reviews from Gina! We’re hoping she loves blogging with us here at EFC and decides to become a more permanent reviewer. Melissa and I got together and worked on various behind the scenes items as well as EFC’s blogoversary post. Can you believe we will be celebrating our third blogoversary next week! We have some great giveaways for all of you. We always have productive meetings, and our kids have fun too. We also launched our second EFC Short Story Contest!!! ~ Chrissy 🙂
