Hi jbh13md,

Do you have a link to your blog? The poll sounds fun!

http://minotaurdreams.blogspot.com/

I'm actually thinking of posting a sort of fanfic story on the blog depending on who gets voted the winner. There's still 5 days left to vote so I'm hoping to get a lot more people to weigh in.

    I post once a day at A Dark and Stormy Blog.

    The end result of posting so often is it becomes both a writers blog and a personal blog, keeping up with both my projects...and my adventures and misadventures as a househusband.

    And I like doing odd things on it from time to time, such as setting a link through google maps so you can walk the ancient streets of Pompeii

    My latest is 'What the reader brings to the story':

    Because sometimes I have to remind myself why everybody doesn't love the same books I do.  ::)

    Sure, nearly every day.  I rebuilt my book trailer because I renamed my novel.  Now it's Paige, Turning.  Youtube seems to believe this music is in public domain so that's always good.  The last music they didn't believe--or Sony put up a fuss.  You can still see it if you're in the Virgin Islands, though.  Today I posted some news about color screens for readers that will be available by the end of the year and a William Powell tribute slide show--he's so iconic, so debonair, so handsome-- and I hope Youtube again believes the music is in public domain.  To the best of my knowledge it is.

    I post quite a bit about covers.  I'm not sure any writer needs or wants particularly to hear what I think about writing in general.  I sure don't want to hear myself talk about it.  But the mechanics of creating cover images interests me so I go there.  It's also good to see what the artwork looks like out of Photoshop.  Gives me a better idea what it'll look like on Kindle.  And yet, even that isn't always accurate.  Sometimes things are much darker on the Amazon site.

    I was going to post something about not having enough blogspot pages to follow earlier, but then I saw this thread. Good stuff guys. Some of the blogs here look really cool.

    Thanks for posting these. I have been blogging for three and a half years and I love blogging and subscribe to lots of blogs.

    I post once or twice a week - sometimes less, sometimes more - about whatever comes into my head. The most recent post was acknowledging the launch of a new book by a friend of mine who is a bestselling author. Before that I mentioned that my books are now in the Kindle UK store. Before that, there were a few general posts about life in London, my dog, a friend's award-winning short film, and so on.

    Come and have a look and follow/subscribe/comment:  http://helensmithblog.blogspot.com

    If you follow, I'll follow back.

    Have a good weekend, everyone.

    I made a shameless self-promotional post about being named a finalist in a book contest.  Okay, it was a little bitty contest, but it made my day: http://contemporary-romance-books.com/637/news/readers-favorite-award-finalist/.

    My blog is where I take a break from overt promotion, because I like to show readers that I have more than one side to me. My latest entry is about my recent 3-week stay in Taiwan, illustrated with a lot of photos I took while there. First part is about food; next part will be about sightseeing.

    Here's my in-depth interview with fantasy author Michael J. Sullivan. We talked about being with a small press, publishing, and making a living as a writer.

    CK - I loved your latest post about your visit to Taiwan, especially the photos. I couldn't see where to leave a comment to say so on the blog (presumably you have comments disabled - but I may not have looked properly). Looking forward to more posts!

    I blogged about an unusual use for a page from the March issue of the London Review of Books.

    I had a productive week of blogging, I think I hit on some interesting topics for e-book experts and newcomers alike, and a little something for everyone:

    This week, over on my "Always Write" Blog

    • June 2010 E-Book Industry Sales Numbers -- Up to $29.8 million.
    • A Free MP3 To Download -- Check out the Theme to Right Ascension; listen to it on your Kindle while you read!
    • My E-Reader Buying Guide -- Do I need an e-book reader? Which one is right for me? Kindle, Nook, or iPad?
    • E-Ink vs. LCD -- What's the difference? Which one is better for reading? What are the pros and cons of each?
    • E-Book Market Share -- What's the deal here? Apple claims 22%, but Amazon says they have 70-80%. Who's right? And what about B&N? Kobo?

     Right Ascension & Declination, thought-provoking, action/adventure sci-fi.
     The Twiller, humorous sci-fi (Red Adept Reviews: 4.75 stars).

     Each is a Top 1,000 Amazon Kindle bestseller, for just $2.99
     Reviews, excerpts, & my blog can be found at www.davidderrico.com.

    Helen, thanks for the kind words! I thought I had Comments enabled, but I went back and re-set the function; hopefully it'll work now.

    You seem quite the seasoned blogger. 100 followers! Maybe it's because of your wicked sense of humor... :D

    Posted another update today, this time with a full chapter from my upcoming book.  It's a single scene with the protagonist and the woman he wants to marry, set at the moment the world begins to end.  You can read it here.

        In the ashes of invasion, mankind struggles for survival.
        Some will run,
        Others will hide,
        But a few will rise up and fight back.
