Post: Bloghop, Giveaway, News, Members


Guess what, guys? The awesome Cassie Mae is hosting a blog hop. My YA has some romance elements in them (in this case, kissing scenes), so I couldn't resist entering. On February 14th, this Hop is hot and on! Check out her blog for details.


Registration for LTUE 30 (Life, the Universe, and Everything: the Marion K. "Doc" Smith Symposium) is up and running. It will be at UVU this year. This is a great opportunity to meet local and published authors. This is my 4th year. How about you?

Misha Gericke is looking for guest posts for the rest of 2012. Head over for details if you wish to volunteer!

has done a little sorting in her home library and found a duplicate novel that she's giving away. A free Kelley Armstrong novel? Yes, please! Check out her blog for details (all you have to do is follow and comment). Easy breezy!






The Cosmic Laire has been nominated for the Top Writing Blogs Award, presented by eCollegefinder.org. Cool! What an unexpected surprise! As a nominee, I'm encouraged to write a student-targeted advisory post. Look for it soon. And thank you for the nomination!

And now, please welcome the Laire's latest members (if you're name is not linked, I could not find your blog)!

Update: Still working on those first three chapters of The Dragon's Heart, but getting closer and closer to being satisfied with them enough to move on. Here's to getting past chapter 5 by the end of the week!

What are you up to this week?

I'm David, and ... "Give your blog a push!"
