Much Muchness

Many things going on!

First: All this week on the League, we're posting our top writing tips. A lot of people lately have been asking about the first chapter of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE since Penguin released it.  So, today I'm posting about how that first chapter came to be.

Second: WriteOnCon was an entirely free online writer's conference run by a group of awesome bloggers who just wanted to give back to the writing community. But while they made sure it was free for the THOUSANDS of participants, it's not free to buy webspace, serverspace, and internets. So, they're holding a fundraiser. And, um, listen guys--one of the prizes? It's from me. I'm not going to say more, but it's something a lot of you have been asking for, and it's signed, and it's going to be announced tomorrow at 7:00 AM.

Third: I've decided to extend the swag giveaway until Tuesday, when Lisa will also pick a grand prize winner! Be sure to enter--just comment for a chance to win swag, but visit the other blogs to gather the word to make the phrase that you can enter to win the grand prize! OK--that sounded confusing. But it's not. Trust me. And go enter at Lisa's blog for the grand prize, which includes an iPod!

Fourth: Shameless plug for my church, which is holding a fundraiser. If you need flower bulbs, please buy from my church!
