If you have a moment, I hope you’ll stop by The Words Behind the Writer. Marlena and her blog rock hard, and I’m glad I’ll always be able to say that she was the first person to do an author interview for Gift. :)
Thursday, agent Kathleen Rushall of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency asked to see the first 25 pages of The Underground Gift. This opportunity is the result of a Savvy Authors contest.
If you haven’t had an opportunity to visit this site, it’s an excellent resource for authors. They usually hold several contests a month as well.
BLOG ON FIRE AWARD
Kicked, Corned, Bitten and Chased. I was fortunate enough to recently read the beginning of LisaAnn’s urban fantasy The Mermaid Gene, and it came as no surprise to learn Kathleen requested a partial last month; congratulations!
The purpose of this award is to spotlight up-and-coming bloggers who deserve acknowledgement for all the hard work and dedication they put into their craft.
I would like to pay this forward to Tirzah Laughs of A Clever Whatever. In my day job as an editor for the University of California, I’m also the department’s graphic designer. (This is one time when I loved budget cuts, because I’m just Piscean enough to enjoy wearing both hats!) Well, Tirzah is a phenomenal graphic designer whose wonderfully witty blog never fails to inspire me.
With this award, recipients can feel free to pay it forward if they’d like, or you can just enjoy the fun!
