Today's a bit of a "general bulletins and news" day here on the blog because there are a couple of things I'm really, really excited to share with you.
1. I didn't talk about it before it went up, but Nova Ren Suma, author of Imaginary Girls and Dani Noir/Fade Out, is having a fantastic blog series on turning points in the lives of writers. She asked me to contribute, which is honestly just beyond amazing, and I'd love for you guys to read my piece over on her blog. I write about being an aspiring writer, trying to improve, and knowing in your gut when things just aren't good enough. I'm excited and more than a little nervous about this because what I decided to write about is a really personal time and experience in my writing life, one I don't often talk about. So read it?
2. Bri from Bri Meets Books has decided that there should be a book blogger tweet chat. She's hosting the first one THIS SUNDAY, 8pm EST. The topic is negative reviews and I hope if you're a book blogger you'll be there, because I'm excited about it and barring some unfortunate, unforeseen occurrence, I'll definitely be there. If you've never participated in a Twitter chat before, tweetchat.com is a great website to use that automatically updates all tweets with a certain hashtag (in the case of this chat it'll be #bookbloggerchat).
