Get your hot mojo here

I’m not a big Austin Powers fan, but the man did have some crazy mojo. And we love us some mojo on the Playground.

Mojo is about appeal—and the Playground crowd is pretty appealing right now (and that includes all you Honorary Playfriends as well!). The mojo is as hot as that metal playground slide on a sunny July afternoon.

And the good mojo seems to just beget more good mojo! Kira’s first book is out and getting great reviews. My editor gave me some pretty happy news at conference. Andrea is getting pitch requests in hotel elevators. Manuscripts are being requested right and left. People are winning contests, finaling in contests, selling stuff…the squeees are flying fast and furious and every dog for miles is hiding under the bed from the noise.

Oh, yeah, bay-bee.

We love it when the mojo is hot. Every day brings something to celebrate. And we’re all about the celebrating.


So I’m opening up the comment tail for you to share your squeee-worthy news of whatever kind. Let’s hear more about that hot mojo goin’ around!

Hi PC!
Mojo...I have had good mojo,
I've sent in a partial...and am finishing a manuscript. (Ok, so I am still wringing that one out...LOL)

Yes, it's baby steps but you know, each movement forward begets more..so I'm happy.

Besides I get to hang with all you mojo magnets and thats a heckuva lot of fun...:)

Yep, the mojo is going great on the Playground. Let's just hope my mouth has good mojo too and the hygienist doesn't find any cavities. ::grin::

My best friend is having her baby girl today! I'm so excited to get to be there this time(she was living in Chicago with her first).

I'm having out-patient foot surgery tomorrow, but it's good because I'll be able to get back to the gym in about 6-8 weeks.

I need to feel the mojo, be one with the mojo... I'm ready to bask in some glory. So ready that my day job is just aggravating the heck out of me. Can we just skip on to me hitting the NYT list so I can quit and write at home instead of dealing with this day to day drudgery?

I doubt there's that much mojo circulating, but a girl can hope.

Jolie said...

Well, we know where I'll be hanging out all day! My mojo disappeared a while back and has yet to return. Maybe I'll catch a glimpse of it here today??

Chelle...OH. MY. GOD. I don't even know what to say to that. Big hugs, sweetie. :(

Lynn Raye Harris said...

Chelle, that sucks. Truly. Whatever you do, and I know this is hard, do not believe it's your fault. He might try to make you think so, but don't buy into it. Hugs.

My mojo is returning. Company is gone, ideas are trickling in, and I have all day at my keyboard to work. Oh, and there's a reporter coming to my house tomorrow to interview me. With a photographer. Eeek!

Playground Monitor said...

Liza, good luck with the foot surgery. I had foot surgery back in February so I can sympathize. Just follow doctor's orders and do what the physical therapist says (if you have to have PT that is) and you'll bounce right back.

Lynn -- a reporter???? Okay, spill!

PM, they're late, but they're coming anyway. This is based on the press release RWA sent out for the GH back in April. They know I didn't win, but they still think it might be interesting. LOL!

If all goes well, and she decides it's worth printing, it'll be in the Decatur Daily. We'll see I guess. :)

Chelle,
Hold your head up sister and continue on. Do what you need to do for yourself. I am sending good mojo your way.
Now for myself, if only I could get my home sold so that I can move on to the next chapter in my life ---- heres hoping.

Here's some squee!! I'm up on Amazon UK!!! No cover yet, but the book is listed, so it's real. I don't know how to post links in comments, but if you go to amazon.co.uk and search for Kimberly Lang, I pop right up!

I love all the Mojo on the Playground! Good things are happening here :-)

Squeee, PC! I can't wait to hold that baby in my hand.

And I got an email while I was at the dentist's office (no cavities, by the way) telling me I'd been selected to appear in the 2009 Bylines Writers' Desk Calendar.

Go mojo!

Jane said...

I don't have any news to share, I just came over to feel the mojo on the Playground.

Crystal Lee said...

Just popped by to bask in the Mojo and to commiserate with SP regarding the crappy day job. I know my job's been in the way of late. Wish I didn't like eating so much! Ha! Anyway, squee!! to all the squeeables!
