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, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
This was a decent week, but I got some bad news toward the end. So it ended up being a bit of a mixed week.
My arm started hurting again this week, this time the pain is in a different location. I hope I can give it some more rest next week and hopefully it will do better. I also managed to break an important program om my computer, but luckily after a few attempts I got it working again. And I am dealing with a really weird computer issue where suddenly everything slows down until it stops working and I have to force a restart to get it working again. It seems to be some sort of memory issue, but besides that I haven’t figured out anything else.
It was a decent week for work. I put a new book blitz live this week. A bookstagram blitz I had organized ran and ended this week, so I did some work on that. I worked on some future tours. And I did some assistant work.
Unfortunately one of my authors notified me they will need me for less hours going forward, so I am now looking even harder for a new author to do assistant work for or try and get more authors for my tours. So if you hear anyone who could use an author assistant or blog tour, please refer them to me. I would really appreciate it.
I love doing this work and don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t do this work anymore. I am not really fit for normal jobs, so I really hope I can keep doing this work. I love having my own company and book marketing is my passion. Unfortunately these past few months have been tough, not sure whether it’s due to corona or one of the normal downs as my business always has some ups and downs. And now that my boyfriend is losing his job soon, it’s even more important that my income remains steady, so I hope I can find some more work. It’s really worrying when those things happen around the same time. So that got me a bit down this week.
After that I decided to change up my assistant work page a bit, so it’s easier to get an overview of the different types of work I can do and not bog it down with too much details. I hope that helps potential authors better see if I am a good fit for them. I am happy with how it looks. I am still working on getting some more testimonials from my current authors to add to the page and then it should be all complete.
I haven’t made as much time for blogging these past few weeks sadly. My apologies for not stopping by other blogs as often.
August Reading Stats
I read 14 books in August. 3 were non-fiction books, 5 fantasy books, 2 cozy mystery books, 3 contemporary romance books and 1 historical book. 4 were novella lenght and the rets were full lenght books. I got a ncie mix of sources again this month, with 8 of the books being ones I got for review, 1 free and 5 books I bought. My favorite read was Wild Sky by Zaya Feli, you can read my review here.
What did I read this week?
Best Laid Plaids was a DNF sadly, I didn’t connect with this one. There seemed to be too much focus on lust and not enough ghosts. Kenya Calling was an engaging fast paced paranormal romantic suspense read. I liked the plot line and there were some great twists. I didn’t really feel the romance as it felt a bit rushed, but I did like the characters. A Cop and a Coop has an awesome mystery, plenty of progression and clues, but also some great twists and reveals. I liked the narrator’s style for this one.
I made some delicious cookies with chocolate chips and pecan nuts this week, so I thought that would make for a good topic for this week’s food corner: cookies with chocolate chips! These are four of my favorite recipes for cookies with chocolate chips.
- Chunky Cookies with Pecans and Chocolate Recipe
- Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles Recipe

Publishable by Death, Checked In, Social Media for Writers and Patterns in the Dark I bought. Publishable by Death is a new to me series and author that sounded good to me. Social Media for Writers sounded like a good non-fiction book as I am interested in social media and haven’t read a non-fiction book about that yet. Checked In and Patterns in the Dark are future books in series I started. My Heart and Soul and My Safe Haven I got for review, those are the last two books in this series.
