Woo! It's Friday! This is a good thing for several reasons:
1. After two continuous weeks of painters scraping, swearing, burping and doing God knows what else right outside my office window, my tolerance is at an all-time low.
2. So is my brain power.
3. I can drink wine (more wine!) without having the it's-a-weeknight guilt factor that's a hang-over from my working days.
4. I can write lame blog posts.
Since there's obviously not much happening over here, I'd like to direct you towards places where there is actually a bit of intellectual stimulation. At Alexia Chamberlynn's blog, I'm talking about the first thing I did when I work up on my novel's Kindle release day. I'm sure you're dying to know!
Over at India Drummond's blog, she's got a great idea lined up to help promote her coming novel, Ordinary Angels. I've read the book and it's fantastic -- with one of the hottest male protagonists ever -- so scoot over and check it out.
Catherine Ryan Howard, author of Mousetrapped, recently wrote an article on her e-book publishing experience. It makes for some fascinating reading (and even mentions my novel The Hating Game - thanks again, Catherine!) and has since been picked up by the Irish Publishing News and The Bookseller.
And finally, if you're not signed up to the A-Z Blogging Challenge, there's still plenty of time!
There's lots going on the blogosphere these days, so if you or anyone you know is having a contest, has a novel coming out... has an ingrown toenail... or whatever, feel free to mention it in the comments below. Happy Friday!
