Friday Links -- Volume 23

It's been a busy week.  Melissa Maygrove has been holding a contest all week to celebrate her upcoming cover release in three days.

If you haven't been participating, you've still got time to get on over there and enter.  What are you waiting for?

Also I have a review up today for Wish You Weren't by Sherrie Petersen over at the Sher A Hart blog.  It's a MG fantasy about a 13-year-old boy who makes a wish on a star that his little brother would disappear--and then gets his wish.  Follow his adventures as he tries to get his brother back.  Touching.

And it's going to be even more hectic next week when I help co-host Alex Cavanaugh's Insecure Writers Support Group. Who knows?  I might even get around to doing some writing. :)

You'll find that three of today's links are supplied by Janice Hardy.  If you ever have any questions about writing, I suggest searching her website.  It's a treasure trove of information and I always look forward to her posts. Have a great weekend!

  1. Thanks for the shout-out, Ken. I apologize for being so tardy in visiting.

    That book about the wish--just reading your description nearly made me cry. It sounds really, really good.

    Tweeting your post...

  2. Thanks for the links. I'll take a look at "Fix Showing vs. Telling" and "How to Turn That Shiny New Idea Into a Novel."

  3. I love Melissa's idea for her cover reveal! Good luck with co-hosting and thanks for the awesome links. :) Have a great weekend!

  4. It's been a busy week with family in Seattle but I wanted to stop by and say thanks for the book review. I think you sold at least one reader if her comment is any indication.

  5. Great links, Ken - thanks so much!
