Matt and Alex's Pay It Forward Blogfest

Short and Sweet: Matt and Alex are running a blogfest with north of 160 blogs linked together. Holy Cats!

We're supposed to recommend 3 blogs and why you should visit them.

Adam Heine: Father to orphaned children in Thailand, kick butt writer of ninjas, mechs and Air Pirates, Adam has an uber-helpful blog with tips on writing, querying, and generally surviving the process of creating a novel.

Anne R. Allen: Small press author who has joined blogging forces with bestselling author and former Big 6 editor Ruth Harris, Anne pulls no punches and brings the latest goings-on in the publishing world straight to you. She is insightful and balanced in her perspective, and I always learn something from her.

Munk Davis: A new blogger found through the Campaign, Munk looks at the world sideways and I love his view! He "has degrees from state institutions but bases his stories on leading edge science and old Bullwinkle episodes." See what I mean?

  2. I like that this blog hop asks you to name just three. Still, a person could be hopping all day. Shannon had some great things to say about you today!

  9. Thank you so much for featuring my blog. I'm really honored. But I need to clarify--It's my blog partner Ruth Harris who's the NYT bestseller and former Big Six editor. I'm just a lowly struggling novelist at a small press. (I've got two books out and three more coming this month and next.)

    Ruth Harris joined my blog three months ago, and she blogs every fourth Sunday. But this week's blogpost on shutting out the noise the death of blogging and required stats is mine. Thanks for your great comments--and Ruth thanks you, too.

    Must check out the other blogs!
