Another ubercool contest in the blogosphere is this!
Candace Granger at The Misadventures of Candyland is having not one, but two contests to celebrate 100 followers! Prizes include books, homemade candle, signed bookmarks, a query critique, a chapter critique and gift card!! Holy wow! Go, now!
Have you visited the website, Nightstand.com yet? If you haven't, what's stopping you? Nightstand.com's mission is to help people learn how to build a lifetime reading plan.
This website features interviews from various readers such as Jamie Weiss Chilton, Cynthia Liu, and Bruce Hale. Plus it has lists like 100 Greatest YA Novels and Greatest Zombie Novels. This fab website even has links to where you can donate your books! What else? The creator, fellow writer David Case, went to high school with me (he was in my sister's class!). Check it out!
Anyone else participating in the 7 Picture Books in 7 Days? Well I am! I thought I'd take a break from my MG to write some picture book fast drafts. I know I can't possibly write seven, but I am about 1/3 of the way done with one so far! Check out Paula Yoo's website for details.
I hand this to Elana Johnson for her daily informative posts!Thanks again to Elana for Spreading the Awesome on Monday. Look here for some great book recommendations from Monday.
*I also received the Too Cool for School Award from Candy! (Though I was at school yesterday substitute teaching first graders, so I really am not too cool for school...maybe just slightly cool...). Thanks, Candy!! (see her contest in first part of this post)
I award it to Suzanne Casamento because she always has fun questions on her blog, and she grocery shops at the same place as Jared Leto!
*Thank you also to Susan Fields for awarding me the Spreading the Sunshine award. Here comes the sun....to the terrific trio - Tina, Heather, and Jon- for their awesome WIBIJ game and sunny contributions to the blogging world. (Tina Laurel Lee also had a blog called, "The Practice Room" where writers unplug for an hour then chat about it! It's a great way to make sure you get writing time in a busy day. See this week's schedule here!)
PHEW! This post ended up being much longer than expected...thanks for sticking with me to the end. You still there? Good. Have yourself a wonderful day, you!
