Nobody from Write Words, Inc. this year, but maybe next time.  We have had several winners in the past and one year had 14 finalists in different categories. Of course that was when my big sister was the bookstore I'm not up on all the details.

Rumor has it that D. W. Sykert, author of CHILDREN OF THE ENEMY and Gianni Hayes,  author of TIME, are sending in blogs for next week and that Jan Shapin, author of A SNUG LIFE SOMEWHERE, will have one coming in April. 

Don't forget that anyone can write a blog to be featured on here. It's a good chance to promote your books or step up on your favorite soap box. You get to pick the subject. Anything you want!  Hmmm, let's see: Why Writng is Fun; TUNA: the Best Food Ever; Famous Cats I Have Known...

Don't forget Ray Morand's ARMY OF THE DEAD is still free to celebrate the release of the sixth in her Red Knight Chronicles series, and to applaude e-books everywhere! Here's the link, in case you missed it:
