Ninja on the Loose!
Today I have a guest post at Rachna’s Scriptorium. She wanted something writing related. (Yes, I am a plethora of writing tips – not!) So you’ll have to stop by and see what I came up with.
Monday it was the reviews of CassaStar and Cassafire, Wednesday was the interview, and today is the giveaway of my books at The Writing Nut! Visit Nutschell’s site for a chance to win a copy of CassaStar and CassaFire.
Liz Fichera’s cover for Hooked was revealed yesterday on Harlequin Teen’s Facebook page and today she has big news!
Michael Abayomi has a new book out – Neuro: A Science Fiction Collection. Congratulations, Michael! See his site for details.
Rick Daley is celebrating Christmas in July by offering his book, The Man in the Cinder Clouds, for on 99 cents.
Laura B. Diamond just signed a contract with Etopia Press for her book, Shifting Pride. Congratulations, Laura!
Unfollowing Problem Solved
Wednesday, I’d asked how to permanently remove blogs from Google Reader when unsubscribing doesn’t work and the blog has removed the GFC widget.
Thanks to Laura and several others, we have an answer!
Go to your Dashboard and look to the far right. Hold cursor over symbol and it will say Manage Reading List. Click that! It will pull up all the blogs you follow and you can adjust the settings from there. (And if you follow a lot of blogs, it will take a moment – trust me.)
Entering the final few chapters of the manuscript. (No idea where, as dividing the book into chapters is the last thing I do.) Once I go back and add a few scenes and flesh out a few more this one will clock in at… about the same length as the others. No one can accuse me of being wordy! Or over descriptive or too high tech. As Nutschell said so well – “… a character-driven Sci-Fi story that isn’t weighed down by scientific jargon or technological lingo.”
Movie Trivia Answers!
What is the highest grossing animated film of all time? Toy Story 3
Next highest are The Lion King, Ice Age III, and Shrek II
Inflation adjusted highest would be Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Three films are tied for most Academy Awards at eleven Oscars each.
Ben-Hur, Titanic, and LOTR: Return of the King
What song has unofficially been used in the most movies?
Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the WavesSeveral people suggested Happy Birthday, Bad to the Bone, and All Star, all likely candidates!
There are so many really cool book trailers on the Web. I’d like to start a Friday feature of awesome trailers. If you have a trailer for your book, leave a comment and let me know where to find it. To kick off the feature and get them out of the way, here are the trailers my publisher made for my books:
Ready to win or buy some books? Does the unfollowing solution help? Get the trivia questions right? Do you have a book trailer I can feature? Feeling lucky this Friday the Thirteenth? And who else will be forced to see the stupid Scrat movie tonight? (Ice Age IV)
