The sub-moronic ramblings of a semi-functioning illiterate

Blog Happenings

I wanted to let you all know about some really interesting things happening around blog world. First, for all you would be writers out there Madison Woods is shaking things up at her blog with what she’s calling Tuesday Share.

Tuesdays are where she’ll, “invite other writers to tell me their stories. How they started, where they are and hope to get. If already published, what books they have out and where they can be found. Let us know how to find you in the world wide web of networking and which haunt is favorite. Each Tuesday Share will close with a blurb from whatever story the author is working on or are trying to sell.”

The second is her appropriately named, “Would You Buy It?” Thursday where, “I’ll post a 25 word pitch from a different author and the rest of us will vote on it as to whether we’d buy the book based on that brief distillation. We’ll offer constructive crit in the comment section. At the end of the week, I’ll send the poll summary to the participant and all the comments and they can take it from there to decide what to do with it.”

Next is my WHORRIBLE friend Jonathan Borden who’s latest work, New World Order peeks into a future that may or may not contain fellow blogger and SciFi dweller Dayton Ward; whose latest novel THAT WHICH DIVIDES recently went on sale. For you uber fans out there he’s also done an interview with equally uber Star Trek fan Chris Jones over at Trek.fm’s “Matter Stream” channel.

While I am beginning to appreciate SciFi, I believe my contribution to the genre would probably look a little something like this:

    Hahah! I feel that way about trying to write hard-core scifi. Thanks for the mention of my blog shake-up. I hope your readers (and you) will join us!

    • I certainly will. I think it’s a great idea.

  2. You should go into marketing or become an agent in between writing books.

    • That’s not a bad idea. 🙂

      • March 1st and I’ve already used up my monthly allotment of good ideas.

  3. Cute. Popped over for the Thursday poll.
    Not sure if I should vote on a genre I don’t particularly care for…

    • That’s ok. Wait until you see the lame offering I’m shipping over for my book. It’s a good thing you didn’t read it because you may never have read my book.

  4. Thanks for the links! I’ll be sure to check them out.. and yes, I actually did watch the entire “Sex Robot” video.. poor guy.

    • It’s embarrassing how often I’ve watched that.

  5. Thanks so much for the plug!

    I’m doing another interview this Sunday. In the finest Bill O’Reilly tradition, “FUCK IT! WE’LL DO IT LIVE!”

    Assuming I can drag my butt out of bed, of course….

    • I know what you mean. Every time the Reverend of my church asks why I never attend services, I tell him that I don’t have a problem with the Lord, I have a problem with Sundays. I suppose that excuse would fly better if I didn’t live next door….

  6. I love that “would you buy this?” idea. I will check that out.

    • I like it too, up until the point that I offer a submission of my own.
