Sharing friends with my friends

I thought, today, instead of an author interview, I would share the sites of some of my blogging friends:

For all of you who might be thinking of taking the challenge of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), wantoncreation has some advice for you.

If you prefer a site where you can read an interesting story, Diane Dickson has written many short stories and serials, so pop over here. Soon she will be offering one of her novels for free, too!

C.B. Wentworth has a lovely variety of posts; lovely poetry, gorgeous photography, fantastic travel tales, and her beautiful knitted creations. You can find her latest poetry and photo of a Roman bridge here.

On the site, Speculating Canada, Derek Newman-Stille discusses Canadian speculative fiction, interviews writers of the genre and writes reviews. Considering the month, I recommend you head over there and read his list of ‘Canadian Must-reads-For-Halloween‘.

I enjoy reading what Elizabeth Creith has to say on her website. She discusses her writing and gives pointers to upcoming authors. For example, in her latest post, she discusses writing style.

If you want to read a charming Halloween-themed story, pop over to roughwighting and immerse yourself in ‘Witchy Woman’.

Jenny Keller Ford is a lovely woman who is working hard to get her first YA novel published. In the meantime, she has had several short stories published in anthologies put out by J. Taylor Publishers. She interviews other writers, like Terri Rochenski in her latest guest post ‘Balancing Family With Writing, and she reviews books as well as giving tips on writing.

Another writerly blogger is Jennifer M. Eaton. She’s been advising her readers with ‘… Simple Rules To Writing The Best Novel Ever‘, based on the article, ‘Hunting Down the Pleonasm’ by Allen Guthrie. She also has been providing us with book reviews and author interviews. She began the multi-author story ‘Write A Story With Me’, which has a new episode each Monday.

I think that’s enough sharing, for today, although there are many more exciting bloggers out there, writing wonderful blog posts, which I hope to share another time. I hope you will take the time, on this leisurely Sunday, to peruse the links provided.

Happy Sunday, Everyone! 🙂


Make Believe Blog Tour – And so it begins…

Hi, Everyone! December will not be your usual fare her at My Withershins. I’m helping a group of fellow writers promote the upcoming release of their anthology, Make Believe by J. Taylor publishing.

Make Believe

The tour officially starts December 3rd, but some have already begun spreading the news. There will be all kinds of giveaways, interviews, and story reviews, about which I will try to keep you informed.

The anthology is a fantastic collection of stories, ranging from contemporary to paranormal romance to fantasy. One of the bloggers I follow, Julie Catherine, has graciously hosted two of the authors, Jenny Keller Ford and Jennifer Eaton. You can find their interviews on Julie’s site (click on her name to follow the link). I interviewed Jenny Keller Ford way back in June, which you can find here.

Julie has included a bio of each writer and asked them a few questions about their writing, the inspiration for the short stories they submitted to J. Taylor Publishing, and all sorts of other fun and interesting things, so please drop by Julie’s blog and learn more about these amazing writers.

If you want to follow their individual blog tours, you can read Jenny’s blog here. There’s also details on the contests. I won’t go into all that here, so you will need to pop over there to learn how you could win some beautiful prizes. 🙂

Jennifer gives you a snippet of the story she wrote for Make Believe, which she’s posted here.

The Make Believe link on my sidebar, gives you the tour schedule for another of the writer’s J. A. Belfield. I’ll be posting my interview with her next week, so check back here, then. 🙂
