Well, first I want to say, I must clean my desk. The notes I had written on little pieces of paper for this post are no longer on my desk, nor in my house anywhere. I must have gremlins. Oh the frustration of having to go through blogger once more for addresses and links.
The question for the day is -- when my post comes up on your blog roll, do you see just "Piedmont Writer" or does my new lighthouse picture come up as well? I don't know, I can't see it. I'd hate to think you all get exposed to my lighthouse every day.
I'd like to Welcome and say Thank You to all these new friends. Valerie, Tessa, Lisa, Bossy Betty, Catt, Amber, Damyanti, Jamie, Ted, Jen, Anamike, Deniz, Crimey, Wendy, Jessica, Shannon and Susan R. Mills. All are awesome writers. Thanks so much for joining me here. I've always got a pot of coffee and something to nibble on, so grab a gnosh, pull up a chair and join in the fun. I'll be round to your blogs to join you over the weekend.
Lucy Woodhull from You Say Weird Like It's a Bad Thing is having a contest. She's giving away a book from her friend Jennifer Haymore, who recently found out she has cancer. Lucy believes that if enoungh people buy the book, A TOUCH OF SCANDAL, the cancer will go away. A good thought, and support none-the-less, however if you have a minute, a prayer may do just as well.
Samuel Park from Daily Pep for Writers had this to say about writing a first draft. If you missed it, or haven't met him yet, do so now. This is fabulous!
Roni at Fiction Groupie had a post on whether or not to go with e-publishers. Interesting read. I have actually been mulling this one over for awhile even though I swore I would never. Hey, a girl's got to have some money right? But as I said I'm still mulling it over. (Not for Genna & Tony of course, but for the Regency series.)
If the links don't work, please go and see these talented writers.
Thank you all so much for coming to my birthday bash. I had a great time. Although no one guessed my age. Which is really okay, but I thought someone might have. I guess that means my stock in Oil of Olay is working.
And don't forget about another Genna excerpt tomorrow. (I've figured out what day it is anyway.) Shelley, this one's for you! There's a big surprise coming your way!
