Wednesday Scramble

Tomorrow's Special Guest

Carolyn Poling Schriber, author of Beyond All Price, wrote an informative post on how she planned and presented her book launch party online. She has graciously allowed me to re-post her story. Anyone who has a book release coming up later this summer or in the fall may find this article very helpful.

Nannie Goats in Panties

This is a cute humor blog with a lot of followers. I especially liked the May 31st post, Marriage 101: How to Keep Romance Alive Through Your Grocery List.

On Critique Groups

This excellent article at Jane Friedman's Writers Digest blog, There Are No Rules, is called 4 Ways to Make the Most of a Critique Group.

Focus, Focus

“Focus! How Writers Can Improve Their Productivity” by Lisa Morton at Cemetery Dance Publications is pretty interesting.

I need to read this article at least once a week.

Scheduling Thursday Guests for This Blog

I've issued the call for more guests to sign up for the available Thursday spots through the rest of 2011. If you have a book coming out this fall, and especially if you're planning a blog book tour, you might want to schedule your guest appearances well in advance of book release date.

Contact me through the e-mail link in my blog profile.

Pat - Thanks very much for the helpful links :-). I'm looking forward Carolyn Shriber's visit tomorrow, and I just love that Goats in Panties title - original and funny!

Yvonne said...

Alot going on Patricia, hope to catch some of it.
Have a good day.

I just noticed you've hit 300 followers! *throws confetti in the air*

Patricia Stoltey said...

Hi Margot and Yvonne. Hope you're having a wonderful day.

Elspeth -- it was funny, because I got to 300 and had my giveaway, then it dropped back to 299 for a week or so, and now it's holding at 300 again.
