Well, it’s finally arrived – the Pay It Forward Blogfest!
For those participating, we’re supposed to spotlight three (or in my case, five) blogs we enjoy reading and think others would enjoy as well. So, without further ado . . .
Missed Connections – I’ve already written an entire post about Sophie Blackall’s fabulous blog (check it out here), but thought I’d share it again for those who missed it. An incredible artist, Blackall illustrates the “Missed Connections” section of Craigslist, creating lovely and poignant odes to lost love.
Mina Burrows – A blog devoted to the paranormal, Mina Burrows and I share a love of Joss Whedon’s work and the creepy classics. She gives incredible reviews of Gothic literature, such as The Fall of the House of Usher and The Turn of the Screw, and constantly brings new (and classical) paranormal books to my attention.
Another Slightly Scary Story – I actually came across Draven Ames’s blog through this very blog hop (he featured my blog a few days ago). He features interviews and short stories, as well as tips about the book publishing industry. He’s already introduced me to more than a few great sites. Check it out!
Wicked and Tricksy – Yet another of the blogs I’ve only recently come across, this one is hilarious! From the moment S. B. Stewart-Laing, one of this blog’s five writers, mocked human/vampire relationships (“Didn’t your momma tell you not to play with your food?”), I was hooked.
From Pen to Paper – Last but certainly not least, my good friend Julie Tuovi’s blog. She’s a witty, YA novelist who discusses movies, reading and the perils of writing. She’s definitely worth checking out!
Thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh for hosting this amazing blogfest. I hope you enjoy these blogs as much as I do!
Thanks for the recommendations :).ReplyDelete
Yay! I love bolgfesting!! [Haha, that sounds like a disease!] I'll definitely have to do a bit of my own paying forward this weekend. My blog needs another good post [its been neglected the past few days.... poor lottle blog]ReplyDelete
Thanks girl, you rock!! [Like, Ethan and Alex style!]
Speaking of which, I think we should write a spin off od bith of our books where Ethan and Alex hook up. Purely fiction, of course (fiction squared). Your thoughts?
P.s. Ignore my plethora of typos. My smart phone hates me.ReplyDelete
