KSM - updates and fests

August is slipping away. Some days I'm behind, some days I make up for it, but my Camp Nano story is coming along nicely. I am excitied! The characters have gone on a quest I had no idea they needed to take! I am having a blast following them on their journey! Hope my fellow campers are doing well, too! Keep writing!

I'm also looking forward to September. Routine, school, subbing, and blogfests!

So much is happening right now! HUGE!

Angela B and Lady Gwen have started a new blog for paranormal YA writers called Partners in Paranorm YA! I was honored that they asked me to make them a header. *blush* Go check it out!!!


Unicorn Bell Query help contest!The Unicorn Bell busy bees are presenting so much helpful info - it's like a Query Con!  Agents and Editors are at the ready! Even if you aren't at the query stage , you must stop by!

IMPORTANT REMINDER!
Speaking of querying, if you are looking for an agent/publisher, remember to sign up for
Deana Barnhart's 2nd annual

And more reminders:
  • WRiTE Club is still going on - don't forget to get over there and vote on Mondays and Wednesdays!
  • Marcy is generously hosting The Great Giveaway! Every week through September.






  • But first, we get to do our first writing assignment of the school year for Emily King and Melodie Wright  - What I did last summer bloghop!

So many great blog hops coming up! Thanks!

Glad that Camp NaNo is going well! Mine is on track right now, but I have so much to do today that I might not be able to fit camp in. That makes me sad because I'm really enjoying it.

Happy Monday, Tara!
