I tried to be organized, and some of my pre-written posts were good, some of my seat of the pants posts were better, and sometimes I just had foot-in-mouth (or is that toes on the typewriter/keyboard) moments for both posts and comments. I thought I would have time to visit more posts, but I made sure that I stuck with 10 minimum a day, and although I didn’t get out to visit that many, I made some new, good friends – blogging buddies that I hope will be lasting blog buddy friendships for a long, long time.
There were amazing posts out there. I loved so many, but there were a few that had me completely hooked:
L.G. Smith’s travel posts that start with American AbroadAngela Brown’s Abby and Basil story which starts here: Abby and Basil
Alex J. Cavanaugh's Shout Out Posts - who doesn’t love the encouragement of the Ninja Captain?
M Pax is celebrating her book launch of The Backworlds. Today her guest post can be found at Frances Pauli's blog Speculative Fiction. M Pax is a scifi lover, with an awesome job at Pine Mountain Observatory where she works as a docent in the summer. Her blog, Wistful Nebulae is a great place to hang out and find both science facts, and the joys and challenges of writing science fiction. So go and join in on the celebration!
The Backworlds After the war with Earth, bioengineered humans scatter across the
Backworlds. Competition is fierce and pickings are scant. Scant enough
that Craze’s father decides to hoard his fortune by destroying his son.
Cut off from family and friends, with little money, and even less
knowledge of the worlds beyond his own, Craze heads into an uncertain
future. Boarding the transport to Elstwhere, he vows to make his father
regret this day.
