Mini Kick Start Tuesday

Well, Hello October!
I wanted to mention a couple of items you should know about!

==>Don't forget about our monthly Insecure Writers Support Group meeting - TOMORROW!

==> On Oct 17th the Knights and Ninjas are joining forces - Ciara Knight and Ninja Captain Alex are co-hosting the DINYB blog hop!
Post about a book you’ve noticed, but DON’T tell the author that their book has been noticed. Wait for the author finds his/her book then leave a comment at Ninja Captain Alex or Ciara Knight’s blog when the author finds their book.
Only two rules:
1)You can’t post about your own book.
2)The book shouldn’t be on the New York Times or USA Today bestseller list.

==> Sarah is hosting the "What Writing Looks Like Blog Hop" Oct 15th!
A pic and a blurb!
All you'll need is a picture or print screen image of a part of a first draft you have written. You can even post a before and after of something you worked on. Be sure to write a little bit about what you were writing, why you chose to write on the particular media you were writing on (napkin, sticky note), etc. 


==> And LOOK AT THIS! Charity Bradford is about to go public!
The Magic Wakes

Talia has a secret that will save her world while ripping it apart. Only she can decide if the price is worth it.

Scientist Talia Zaryn has recurring visions of an alien invasion and her own death. She’s kept it a secret, hoping they are nothing more than childish nightmares. But when her face in the mirror matches that of her dreams, she fears the dreams are prophetic. Talia must prove that life exists beyond their planet, Sendek; perhaps then people will prepare to fight.

But that won't be easy when a complicated love interest and Talia's growing magic culminate as the invasion commences. Talia must trust her magic and uncover the secrets of Sendek’s past to defeat these terrifying creatures and save her world.


The Magic Wakes is due out on February 19, 2013 from WiDo Publishing
