Kick Start 2013!

First Monday of the new year! Thank you all so much for the support and congrats. You always make me feel loved! I will try to stay on top of my goals and keep track here on the blog - as I hope you will update us on your progress too!

Even though I won't be doing all the hops, I can still tell you about them! Or the ones I hear about anyway...

Coming up Wednesday is LG Keltner's Beginnings Blogfest where we share our awkward (or not) first moments in writing. The sign up list has jumped into the hundreds.(correction, 50s - my bad, must have been looking at the wrong fest!) Should be some fun stories! (and LG won David P King's Build a Blog banner, by yours truly - it's all from her creative mind!)

January 2013 Tour
Sharon Bayliss is doing a great job at The Blog Tour Exchange! Right now they are promoting three sci fi books in a Curiosity Quills Sci Fi Tour

Also this month My Favorite Martian blog hop - fun from space! Jan 14


My PhotoHave a wonderful, complete manuscript? Looking for an agent? Here is a fun event you should try - Cupid's Blind Speed Dating! Starts next week! Click for details!

I have to say how surprised I am that no one is bringing the love in Feb yet! I am hosting three stops on blog tours in Feb, so that is quite all right! I'm sure someone will bring some love.

Skipping to March, Captain Ninja Alex is hosting another surprise blogfest! March 18th - mark your calendars!

That's all for now...Have a great week!
