#1 – I’m being interviewed today! Let me tell you a bit about my host…
J.C. Martin is a fellow writer whose blog I’ve followed since its inception. Its title tells you a bit about her:
J.C. Martin, Fighter Writer
Reading, writing, and fighting–the three joys of life!
J.C. is a black belt and teaches martial arts and self-defense to both children and adults. She also writes dark mysteries and gripping thrillers with a psychological slant.
Needless to say, she writes awesome action scenes and great suspense! I’ve really enjoyed reading her blogfest entries and other writings on her blog.
Her debut novel, Oracle, is scheduled to be released by J. Taylor Publishing August 1, 2012.
Thank you, J.C.!
#2 - * Snowfest * Blogfest
Hopefully everyone’s recovered from NaNoWriMo and the holidaze…so I think it’s time for a blogfest!
I love blogfests! They’re a fun writing exercise and give me a chance to check out other writers’ works. In fact, my two published short stories, The Monster’s Growl and The Seduction, are both former blogfest entries!
I haven’t hosted a blogfest in quite awhile, so I thought in honor of the New Year I’d do so.
I’m calling it * Snowfest *, because it’s that time of year for some folks (I say this as I look outside at sunny skies and the non-snow covered rolling hills of California). I love the snow, so the theme of this blogfest is… to write a scene in the snow!
Here’s the details:
1) What: Write a scene that takes place in the snow. It can be snowing or not, just as long as snow is part of the setting. And for those of you who like an extra challenge, write a scene in which snow is the main focus of the characters, whether they’re building a snowman or fighting for their lives in a snowstorm.
2) Word count: 1,200 words or so (I can never keep my own entries in any blogfest under 1,000!)
3) Blogfest date: February 2, 2012
BONUS: Watcher Giveaway!
One entry will be selected at random to win a free copy of Watcher: Book I of The Chosen.
So bring out your shovels, I mean pens, and join me in a snowdance to celebrate one of the most beautiful forms of the water that gives life to our planet. And don’t forget the carrot for that snowman.
You can find the list of participants here. And if you want to spread the word, just copy the blogfest banner!
