I was going to blog about Read an Ebook week, but we all know they rock and I didn't know what to post, so just click the link and read away. lol
I really didn't prepare anything today so I'll tell you a little bit about a contest I entered. In case you don't know it...I LOVE contest. It makes me stretch myself as a writer and sometimes I'll learn something. I'm still new to the writing world and want to find what I'm good at. I'm always willing to try a new genre.
The contest I entered is over at Manic Readers. I had to put together a 1,000 excerpt about Men in Uniform. My man is a Marine. Yum. It also had to be steamy. I think I have that covered as well.
The second round of voting is up, but I'm not in the group yet. I'm not sure when I'll be up.
Here are a few facts from the site:
Beginning March 1, 2009, Manic Readers will post 20% of the entries at the beginning of each of the following weeks:
Each week registered users can vote for their top two entries (one vote per entry)
The top two entries from each week will be posted April 5, 2009 and read by Becky Vinter with NAL Publishing.
You can see why I might be a LITTLE excited. I'll give a little update when mine is up for voting. Now my name will NOT be attached to my excerpt. You will have to vote for your two favorite excerpts and I have to hope you pick mine. If you do, then I did my job! :)
A little more Jambrea news. The anthology I'm in, One Touch, One Glance is up at The Romance Studio They also gave it a nice review. Very exciting stuff. :)
