In a cosmic alignment of calendar events, I have stuff featured at two other blogs today. If you haven't checked them out yet, I strongly recommend doing so!
The First 7500 Words is a new-ish blog, but I was intrigued by the concept. You either grab your reader right away, or you don't. As I read along, I found myself bookmarking at Goodreads some of what had been reviewed, which gave me the last little shove I needed to submit my own book. Jennifer, the blogger/reviewer, does a great job at being snarky and humorous without crossing the line into nastiness, which is refreshing.
The Voices of Fiction project is still going on over at Footsteps of a Writer (I think I linked it here once before). It's been great to see the wide variety of answers to each question. The current question ("Who is your favorite fictional character?") is especially fascinating, as different people are inspired by wildly different traits and actions (or reactions, as the case may be).
