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:
