    Just posted Titles and Origins the day before yesterday, talking about the history of my upcoming novel, from first brainstorm to finished product.
      Stars Rain Down Now Available!
        In the ashes of invasion, mankind struggles for survival.
        Some will run,
        Others will hide,
        But a few will rise up and fight back.
        What would you fight for? What would you die for?

      Stars Rain Down Only $2.99 in the Kindle store

    I hadn't actually blogged since I finished Uni but recently started again.  It's related to my non-fiction WIP and I'm actually finding that it's helping to clarify my thoughts and get all my notes into something that will eventually become, hopefully, a readable book.

    It's about the history/development of Christianity and an examination of Christian prophecy so not for everyone but I'm really enjoying it. 

    Cheers,
    Trace

    I've been blogging for the last few weeks about self publishing my first ebook, detailing sales (or lack there of) as I try different marketing strategies.  Still early, but check it out:

    Revving this thread:

    The other day I posted the second part of 'Visions Of The Mystic East' on Wysardessence: A Fantasist's Reality. The first part dealt with Taiwan's eclectic cuisine; this one features temples. Click the link for a little armchair vacation.

    Namaste,

    I posted today. J.B's Amazon Fantasy/Sci-fi Recommendation Roundup. It's this thing I do. Also, I'm running a contest on my bog. If you can answer this water buffaloes 3 questions about fantasy literature I'll send you an e-book copy of "The Seven Sisters" for free. I'm not gonna lie. It's pretty strange stuff these days. Fun perhaps, but very strange. http://minotaurdreams.blogspot.com/

    Cheers,
    JB

    P.S. I really don't want that water buffalo to win. Won't you help?

    Change is in the air at Bibliophilic Blather.

    Coming soon to my blog will be "Editing for Grammarphobes" on Mondays and Wednesdays, where I will offer tips on proper grammar, punctuation, usage and spelling, and "Flash Fiction Fridays," where I will showcase the work of various authors.

    Flash fiction is short, very short, in my case, 500 words maximum, but that tells an entire story within that tiny parameter. It is a lot of fun.

    If you would like to participate, October's theme is "Horror." Submissions are due 9/29. Next month's theme is another scary thing--family gatherings-- just in time for Thanksgiving. Those are due 11/1.

    All I ask is that you become a follower of my blog. No biggie, right?

    Please e-mail your story and a bio to me at [email protected] and put "Flash Fiction Fridays" in the subject line.

    It will be a blast!

    Sounds interesting - good luck with it, Karen.

    ----
    I have updated my blog a couple of times in the last few days. There's a video showing how I chose the winners in a recent content to win signed copies of my books, and a post wondering what you need to do to write the best book in the world.

    Feel free to come and comment.

    I post every day on my blog.  (It's an ongoing novel dare.  I have to.)

    I was posting a lot of writing "think pieces" but I finally got back to posting writing progress again - although with this I almost always talk about writing issues and theory with the updates as well.

    I'm trying to get back to more frequent posting on my blog: http://sidneywilliams.blogspot.com

    I slacked off while working on my MFA. One of my most popular posts is a Steampunk iPhone wallpaper I did.

    I couldn't see the Steampunk iPhone wallpaper post, Sidney. The more I looked, the more desperate I become to have a look at this popular post - and I don't even have an iPhone. I do like Steampunk, though.

    I like to track, graph, and analyze e-book sales data (monthly industry sales statistics, as well as the market share of Amazon and the other e-book retailers). July's e-book sales numbers are in, and they're HUGE -- so I have a new post today:

     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

    This thread got me so interested in blogging again that I'm now running two  :o

    Still doing White Horse and enjoying that immensely even if I may end up being tarred and feathered for some of my beliefs  ;D

    But I'm also blogging over at Goodreads - just every day stuff, almost like an online journal [duh that's what they were supposed to be  :P ]  but I'm also really enjoying that.  I only blog every couple of days as I'm knee deep in many writing projects at the moment as well but still -
    Wanted to say thanks for giving me the little push I needed  :D
