Hobbit Fest and other Awesome Happenings!

 Hobbit Fest is Coming and the Linky List and Details are here!!!
M Pax from Wistful Nebula and I are co-hosting.

 To participate:

1. Sign up on the linky list.

2. Post your answers to the four questions on December 14th.

3. Visit all the other Hobbit Fest participants December 14th.

What is your favorite hobbit characteristic/or the one that you think closely resembles you . . .?

If you could choose between a scrumptious second breakfast and a perilous unexpected journey – which would you prefer?

Have you ever left behind something on a journey (expected or unexpected) and wished you could have it over and over again? (a pocket handkerchief?)

What is your Favorite part or quote from the book that you hope will be in the movie?

Other Awesome Happenings:
Monday is the beginning of the I'm Thankful for my Readers blog hop!
Then, we have IWSG on Wednesday!
The 12th begins M Pax's Jousting and Tournament Launch Party for the Renaissance of Hetty Locklear - get ready to vote for Knight Light!
And, on November 16th, there's the Oh, How I Miss You blogfest!

Plus, we have all month to cheer on all the crazy NaNoWriMos out there. (I'm probably the craziest of the bunch with edits on one book, and writing another)

In December, there's already three fests going on:
Hobbit Fest - see above and page on the upper right of my blog, or at Wistful Nebula.
The Haphazardly Implausible Book Blog Party
and The It's Time to Give Back blog fest.

And Many Thanks to all of you who have been so willing to host me for my book blog tour, even if I don't have my book cover or many details up yet!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

And I realized that many of you may not even have read my blurb yet. So here that is:

Champion in the Darkness is a YA Christian Fantasy about Clara, a young swordswoman apprentice. When the Dark Sisterhood and the Drinaii attack the capitol of Septily, Clara is forced to flee with a ragtag group of survivors. They will return, but only the power of the Champion can break through the darkness.

For a minute there I thought we posted on the same thing today. We SO didn't, though we're on the same topic. :PP And what a fun blogfest idea!

Sounds like a fun blogfest! I wish I could remember The Hobbit better. It's been years since I've read it.

Very nice to meet you through NaNoReviMo-- and very glad to jump on board your blog! Sounds like you have a lot of exciting events happening.

Nate Wilson said...

I'm a big fan of second breakfast, but not as up on hobbits, so I'll have have to pass on the fest. I wish you the best of luck with it, though (and with the myriad other things you're taking part in over the next couple months).

As a side note, my 2-year-old nephew dressed as a hobbit for Halloween this year, and was completely adorable, or dare I say it... precious.

Livia Peterson said...

Your blogfest sounds fun! But I haven't read the book yet and I'm dying to see the movie! Can't wait to see it in cinemas!

Thanks for letting me know what's going on in the blogosphere! As for M. Pax's blog tour, thanks for letting me know and now, I'm gonna participate! :)

Man, there's a lot of stuff going on in this writing community! It's always busy around here despite NaNo is in full swing!

michelle said...

This sounds like such a fun blogfest. But I have to be honest... I haven't read The Hobbit... is the story very long?

I've noticed that the blogosphere is full of exciting events! There's too much going on!!

Tyrean Martinson said...

michelle - it's a regular novel length story . . .but it's a fast read and well worth it!

Kimberly Gabriel said...

How fun! I'll include this in my round up post on Monday!

Julie Dao said...

Tyrean, I am SOOOOO excited for this movie. You have no idea! What a brilliant way to celebrate. I'm in, in, in! Happy Thanksgiving to you :)
