Saturday Savvy

Laura, wondering if I write fantasy or live in my own fantasy world?

I have a guest interview on Laura Barnes’s informative BLOG.

She asks me about writing and blogging.

And she gave me this lovely award:

If you visit, you can also find out about Rachael Harrie’s Platform Building Campaign, coming soon.

    @ Michael, thanks. I hope you have a happy Sunday.

    @ JEFritz, thank you. I passed on the message to him!

    @ Old Kitty, I know. Now he's old enough for a Facebook account. Luckily, I don't think he's that interested in setting one up.

    @ Sophia, thanks. Yep, he's my oldest!

    @ Julie, thank you. It's the first award I've been able to accept in ages because there are no strings attached.

    @ Karen, thanks! I appreciate it.

    @ lbdiamond, thank you. My son has been happily surprised about all the birthday wishes.

    @ Tara, thanks. The award matches the colors of my blog quite well, I think.

    @ LynNerd, yes, an official teen now. So far, so good.

    @ Hilary, we did have a very nice day. The fun will continue at the beach today. Thanks for reading!

  15. Id like to invite you folks to come to Amish Stories for a recipe for "Famous Pennsylvania Dutch Sticky Cinnamon Buns" along with a book signing schedule for Amish fiction writer Wanda Brunstetter for Pennsylvania and Ohio as well as a contest to meet her. I hope everyone so far is having a great weekend. Thanks everyone. Richard from Amish Stories.

  22. Sorry I unplug on the weekends but I made it, both here and there. :)

    Happy belated to your son. Great interview, you gave very sound blogging advice. It's all about the connection. :)
    Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow

  23. I'm off to read the interview now. I hope the birthday celebrations were wonderful!

  24. Happy Birthday to you both :) Birthday's take on a whole new meaning when you were there for the actual moment, don't they?

    Hope to see you around the Writer's Building Platform!

  25. Will definitely check out the other blog. I enjoyed WriteOnCon; reading through the pitches and agent feedback was so interesting. Mainly just to see what everyone is writing and how many ways you can pitch your work.

  26. I'm hopping over to visit now!

    Hope your son had a wonderful 13th birthday!

  27. Happy belated birthday to your son.

    I'll check out the links.

  28. @ Jules, thanks. I'm glad you agree. There are several authors who have books coming out. They don't comment on their own blog, they don't visit other blogs (or at least mine), and they put up statuses without commenting on other statuses on Facebook. When I feel that disconnect, I'm less invested in what's going on with them.

    @ Katie, thank you. Yes, we had a fun birthday weekend!

    @ Susanna, yes, the birthdays of my kids have bigger meanings than other ones.

    Yes, I'll see you at the campaign!

    @ Stephsco, I'm amazed at what the Write On Con organizers have been able to achieve.

    @ Emy, thanks for visiting!

    @ Jemi, thank you. He had a good one!

    @ Medeia, hope you enjoyed the link. Thanks!

  29. Belated happy birthday to that 13 year old. And, of course, I'll stop by your friend's blog and add my support.

  30. @ Cleemckenzie, thank you for the birthday wishes and visiting Laura's blog.

    @ Lora, so far, so good!
