What’s a Bloggiesta?

blogiesta Bloggiesta is the brainchild of Natasha over at the Maw Books Blog.  It’s a chance to spend the weekend catching up on your blog.  Tidying up loose ends, get ahead on posts, participate in hosted mini-challenges and learn some great blogging tips along the way.  And would I forget to mention….prizes!

Best of all it’s not too late to start!  Although officially it runs from 8am Friday the 19th through 8am Sunday the 21st.  You can still jump in and get plenty of blogging done.  I’m getting in with a slow start myself!

Just run over to Maw Books and get yourself setup.

Ready, set…blog!

Author Interview & Contest

EyesLikeStars

“Publishing a book is a little bit like standing in a spotlight, waiting to see if the performance will receive applause or a barrage of rotten fruit. But I feel lucky to be standing here at all, even if I do get pelted with oranges.”

– Lisa Manchev

There’s another fantastic contest going on over at Reviewer X.  Author Lisa Manchev talks about her upcoming book Eyes Like Stars and her road to publication in this week’s Pub Story.  Did I mention, she’s giving a copy away!

Breathe slowly.  Walk, do not run on over to ReviewerX and enjoy!

Catch This Article! Sarah Rees Brennan on Inspiration

The fabulous gals at Book Smugglers have an amazing author chat online now with the adorable Sarah Rees Brennan , author of the highly acclaimed Demon’s Lexicon.

“And yet, even now, those heroes are compelling. The Big Three started a Tall Dark and Handsomely Withdrawn movement that shows no sign of faltering more than a century later. I wanted to portray a guy like that unflinchingly, taking him apart from the inside out, and still… with luck… create a character who compelled readers.”
