I´m a terrible blogger – but look: shiny links!

Dear all,

We have to talk. This is not a break-up letter. Don´t worry. However, you may have noticed that my blogging has been…hmm…quite sporadic recently. The main reason is that I´m spending every single free minute I have with ONE TWO THREE (and on Twitter :P) As soon as I know for sure my manuscript is as pretty as I can make it, I will be back on a more regular basis and with fun things (like a giveaway or two :P)

But…I do continue to read blogs and I thought I´d share a few with you in case you missed them in the past weeks…

February Compliment Challenge – Where you challenge yourself to compliment one person a day and where incredibly nice and generous Jessica donates to classroom in needs. Intrigued? Ready to spread the love? Then don´t hesitate to head over Jessica´s blog and check it out.

***************

The post where Christa announced her second book BLEED LIKE ME sold (you can already add it on Goodreads.com by clicking on the title)…If you haven´t read her conversation with her agent, Sarah LaPolla, you should! It will make you smile and go “aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwww” for Christa. Because she´s awesome. And because her story sounds great. And because that particular retelling of the phone call is just funny/adorable/so her.

This video by Kelsey made me smile, laugh and nod!

Did you see the adorable group picture on Jaime´s blog from SCBWI? And she and her sister, Erin, made it to the agents´ round of Cupid’s Literary Connection’s Blind Speed Dating! If you read Jaime´s entry, you´ll see what wonderful writing I get to read 😀

***************

And then there´s this inspiring post by Alex on multicultural stories. She´s definitely taking the high road in her answer to some comments she received.

***************

If you love YA contemporary novels, both Katy and Jessica Love are recommending two this week and they sound amazing!

***************

Rebecca Behrens is giving away a copy of THE ART OF WISHING. This book sounds great! You have until the 11th of February to enter!

***************

Do you need a pep talk? Head over to Tracey´s blog!  Her motivational penguin isn´t the only reason why this post will lift your spirits, it will also remind you YOU CAN DO IT! 😀

Have a lovely weekend and “see you” very soon!

    Thanks for the shout-out, Elodie! 🙂 Sounds like you’re hard at work with One, Two, Three. Are you still querying while you’re working on it? I’m about to query some more again soon. O__O

    Thanks for sharing my review link, lady!

    How fun are Kelsey’s videos? I am loving her new vlog series. And yay for Christa and BLEED LIKE ME! I had the privilege of reading that story in its early days and it totally blew me away.

  3. Kitty says:

    I think taking a little break from blogging to work hard on a manuscript is a top-notch excuse… one that I am currently employing, as well. 🙂 Thanks for all the interesting links! I especially like the story on Christa Desir’s blog. So funny! Good luck with ONE TWO THREE.

    You’re not a terrible blogger at all! (or, if you are, I am, too!) Slowing down is okay–especially if it’s to work on writing. Thanks for sharing all the great links. 🙂

  5. Alison Miller says:

    Haha – Alison is a HORRIBLE blogger, but – like you – I have been reading blogs while trying to revise my ms into something query-able. And thanks for the shiny links! I LOVE Jessica’s compliment challenge!

    Hope ONE, TWO, THREE revisions are going well! Can’t wait to hear more about it! And have a wonderful week!
