Before I continue I want to post a blessing to my Rising Phoenix, may she rise again in her daughter, you will be missed. My friend Nix died after being trapped in her house after a fire broke out late Monday/early Tuesday morning. She is survived by her family, including her teenage daughter and her beloved pit-puppy, Diamond. Her son Michael has set up a fund to help with the funeral arrangements and to help replace her possessions since everything was destroyed.
My first Net Galley Wellness Challenge review n the blog! What is the Netgalley Wellness Challenge? It is a seven week period where “professional” readers take a pledge to this year the focus is on reviews and feedback. It is both for us, the readers and reviewers to let the publishers know how we are spreading the word about their their books. There is a webinar, several tip posts, and even a kick-butt hashtag: #MyNetGalley.
Today I welcome someone whom I have worked with before and today I am thrilled to be just another stop on her virtual book tour with Bewitching VBT. She took the bait and dove in with all ten dirty fingernails – keep reading 😉 – I had a lot of fun with this one. Usually I get to play with the food, but this time I got to play with a huge casting call! For someone who claims she stinks at casting, she knows how to pick them! Thanks for being on at the Cabin today, Shannon! Maple Bacon Praline cookie? *smiling* sit a spell and enjoy a marvelous Alaskan afternoon while your fans and new readers find out even more about you!
CG -Tweet the book: You are challenged to tweet a synopsis of the book to include your tweet handle, GO! (Has to fit in a tweet, I will be adding a custom tweet button at the top of post. You can and are encouraged to include #hashtags)
Take what you know about mythology and throw it out the window! Follow @obsidianpoet into the realm of her immortal born #Athine.
CG – Introduce yourself to the captive audience that you now have before you. (As in tell us something NOT in your bio, give us a dirty little secret not having or having to do with your writing)
I used to be a mechanic and worked on cars. I often came home dirty
CG – Is there a genre, other than the one you currently write in, that you wish you could break into? (If you want you can – I would love it if you did – a max flash fiction of no more that 500 words with the prompt of “LIGHT” since summer is here (Yes this could work with romance, mystery, humour, textbooks on quantum physics.. own it, title it and GO!)
I’d like to break into all of them.
Hot Dragons/men/brothers, Explicit Sex, Sex in Water, Magic.. Sex..
Just when you thought it was safe to have a birthday…I got this text message last night, it was a ninja like invite from an unknown number. Like one of those Rave invites or Friday night shows you see papered the day of all over downtown PDX for some show at some random local. All it said was, “Charles Coylott – good blogging fodder – 9/7/2012 – 2 AM.” Curious, I clicked over to his Facebook page, of which I
stalk follow, and saw his birthday was happening on the 7th. I figured it maybe a cool surprise birthday party and possibly some really good gossip, or a shot of him doing a keg stand with an alpaca. On the way over I grabbed my birthday present I ordered and as soon as I entered settled into a corner table to await the birthday boys arrival… boy was I in for a treat!
