Sheep N"ewe"s and stuff

Every once in a while we like to catch everyone up on stuff that some of you might not know about because you don't hang around the dungeon (the Sheep FB group). There are a couple of things we want to get out there:
1. Candid Covers
2. Year of the Sheep news
3. The Bookish Ball FB party
4. Sheep loving

1. Candid Covers
Does your book cover work for you or against you?
This is a private FB group formed by 30+ bloggers, readers and graphic artists. You can email us and ask for a free cover feedback session. We will let you join the group and post your cover and blurb for everyone to comment on. You will be the only author in there so no one outside the group will ever see the cover or our comments. After you get the feedback and asked any questions we will delete your cover thread and remove you from the group before the next author's cover is posted. 
The last author that used us got over 20 different people's opinions/advice. We aren't mean, but we are truthful.
Email to ask to submit a cover:

 2. The Year of the Sheep is rapidly approaching. You can see our count down widget to the right. We want to celebrate all year with one super duper WTF (what the flock) giveaway each month. If you would like to participate in some way by donating signed books, swag or sheep sh**, contact us or leave a comment and we will get back with you. You can mail stuff to us and we will assign you to a month. Or you can wait until your month comes up and mail the winner directly. 

Author Susan Arden made this to show her the mutual love between her dragons and our sheep. We will use this with her guest posts next year.
We already have some some people donating cool sheep crafts, and graphics we can use on t-shirts, swag and the blog. We will be contacting authors and publishers directly soon about participating. Even if you can't donate or have time there is a easy secret surprise something you can still do if you want. Also dressing up as a sheep will earn you serious karma points by the way. Just saying...

3. The Bookish Ball
November 11 I Smell Sheep along with some other bloggers from the Social Blogger group will be hosting The Bookish Ball FB Party. Details like the time frame are still being worked out. But you can head over and sign up to attend and help spread the word. There is even a pre party giveaway once we reach 200 guests (thank you Anna from Hearding Cats & Burning Soup). Each blog will have time slot to run giveaways and any other WTF-ery they want. When you come be sure to have pics of your party attire, accessories (tiara anyone?) and date so you can share with everyone. And if you can't make it to all of the party that is okay the giveaways threads will be pinned to the top for easy access.

4. OMFG (oh my flocking goodness) last month we had over 100,000 page views. Not sure how this compares to other blogs but I remember being excited when we finally got 25K a couple of years ago. 
Thanks to everyone who visits and shares our links and leaves comments. Every time you leave a comment a lamb smiles. Seriously look...  


If you want to keep up with the crazy follow us anyway you want. All options are in the right side bar. I want to encourage you to follow by email cause that is the most convenient, but our FB group is probably the most fun. Pinterest is the most eclectic place.
