Suffice it to say I'm glad and feeling the love with some great things happening this week for some writers I adore, follow or just outright enjoy.
Maria Zannini has Chain of Souls, indie published and yes, I have mine so it's time to get yours. What are you waiting for? Mike at Record of a baffled spirit did a clever plug for her story. Check it out here.
Leigh Fallon, author of Carrier of the Mark, mentioned her Ireland and Australia release this week. It's already available here in the US. I've heard great things about this YA novel so it is definitely a must-get-soon.
Elana Johnson, author of the popular YA dystopian novel, Possession, revealed her cover for her second novel Surrender.
I met blogger, LadyJai, as part of this year's Writers Platform Building Campaign. She announced her first publishing offer for flash fiction. This story is even more potent because her triumph was over the self doubt and fear we all encounter when we put ourselves out there for consideration by some stranger to like, love or dislike something we slaved over. Check her post here as she puts it better than I ever could. Congrats to you! I'm so excited and I can't wait to hear of more on the publishing front.
I also want to share about a blog that I came across because of a blogfest or because it was a link someone else recommended. Anywho, it's SUCH a beautiful blog maintained by Olga. She is an artiste. A very talented one at that. I can stop by her blog two or three times a day just to get a "revival" of the senses. She has the most wonderful pictures that tell their own tales and countless secrets within each frame.
With the end of week wrap up, anything you'd like to mention that isn't listed here that would be great for other visitors to know about as well? I know my post only scratched the surface of great things that happened this week so feel free to comment and share the wonderful news.
