Have you enjoyed the great sports overlap this past week? Football season, the World Series, basketball preseason, and… Oh wait, hockey is still on strike. That sucks.
Hurricane Sandy is past us (although still causing high winds) but pray for those still in her path.

Hosted by Tim at The Other Side.
It’s all about the monsters today!
I decided to go with my favorite monster as a kid - Godzilla.

I am now working on edits after receiving my manuscript back from one of my critique partners. Again, I’ve been blessed with great critique partners! I’ll have to share some of the snarky comments from Cassie with you guys. If you've found humor in her blog posts, beware - those were only teasers! Wait until you hear her thoughts on CassaStorm...
Guest Post Response - Thanks

And since that post prompted several requests this weekend, I now have only two spots open in March, and already working on May! (April is the A to Z Challenge, so not guests during that month.)
