A Little Weekend Scramble

Mysterious Reviews on A Gift for Murder

Remember my guest from January 27th, Five Star author Karen McCullough? Her mystery featuring amateur sleuth Heather McNeil in a mall/trade show setting has received a really nice review at Mysterious Reviews. Congratulations to Karen!

A book giveaway at Katherine Hall Page's Website

Harper Collins is celebrating the April publication of The Body in the Gazebo, the 19th mystery in Katherine's Faith Fairchild series by giving away a signed first edition of the book. The first 20 entrants will receive a signed copy of one of the previous books in the series.

Visit Katherine Hall Page's website to enter. Entries must be received by Monday, April 18th.

The 2011 A to Z April Blog Challenge Participant Count is up to 248

Arlee Bird's goal was to reach 300, but co-sponsor Alex J. Cavanaugh is thinking 500 would be better. In an effort to reach even more bloggers, the team has just added four more sponsors. Since all of these folks have great blogs, I'm listing them here. If you want to enter the challenge at Arlee Bird's blog (tossing it out), you can click on the challenge logo in my sidebar. Or visit any one of the other blogs in this list:

ARC Giveaway at Donna's Book Pub

Donna Volkennant is giving away two advance review copies this month to followers of her blog. Drop by Donna's Book Pub and enter to win The Heart is Not a Size (for teens) or Highway Robbery (for age 10 and up). Both books look like excellent reads.

Check out This New Blog

Writers on the Brink: Writers Becoming Authors includes fourteen authors who were inspired by a Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers panel on social media (Ron Heimbecher, Beth Groundwater, and me) to jump on the promo and platform bandwagon before they get published--a very wise move, in my humble opinion.

And just because everyone needs a good weekend chuckle

Please drop by L. Diane Wolfe's Spunk on a Stick for her Weekend Sillies. My favorite is "Stupid Time Out" -- I'm still grinning...

Thank you for mentioning my Weekend Sillies. I am such the sucker for LOL Cats!

Patricia Stoltey said...

We'll have a good time with A to Z, Yvonne. I'm looking forward to it too.

Diane, I love your kitty funnies. I'm always happy to spread the joy.
