Sunday Foreign Post Roundup

1.  A comment on media taking over for literature--in a drabble by Rayna at Coffee Rings Everywhere.

2. What is your writing weakness?  A great post at a new-to-me blog by Ted Cross.

3.  Are you a writer?  Then pull out your shimmery, silver characters and read Crazy Jane.

4.  My attempt at the Romantic movement is amateurish compared to this guy's knowledge.  And please click to surprise yourself about a famous person in history!

5.  A teaser that hooked me and added a new book to my TBR shelf.  Check out Rose City Reader.

6.  Read Jenn Daiker's post not just for a bunch of new books to read, but also for a great post idea, and a fantastic way to help promote your friends' books!

7. BLOGFEST!  I will admit I hardly ever do these, but this one seems cool, and it's sponsored by Jen Daiker, who is calling her blogfest "Guess that character!"  So, what are you waiting for?

8. Touch DNA--the stuff of SciFi or good ol' mystery books?  Learn a bit from our resident police procedure expert, author Lee Lofland.

9.  The Changing E-book, by Helen Ginger.  Multi-media function is here--what do you think?

10. Killed in their sleep...Clarissa Draper takes on somnambulism.  For the definition, click away!

11.  An overview of Harper Collins.  Really, it's as informative as it sounds--from Dana at A Squirrel Amongst Lions.

12.  Alex Cavanaugh takes on the male mind.

13.  A great review from Rose City Reader--and I learned something new!  Check it out.


  1. Thanks for another great around of links. Enjoy your day.

  3. Thanks for mentioning my post. I can't wait to check out the other links.


  4. A Rose City Reader two-fer! Thanks! And I can't wait to go through the rest of your list.

  9. Michele I love all the links, and I love the shout-out/mention about my post. Super sweet of you! I hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

    PS stop by tomorrow for an amazing book club experience (trust me it's awesome. All you have to do is mail one book. Trust me it's worth stopping by!)

  10. Mason- Anytime, and you, too!

    Alex- I know it wasn't a tough one for you to write, but it cracked me up!

    Clarissa- Keep 'em coming!

    Rose- I jot these down over the course of the week, so I didn't even notice there were two from you till you mentioned it. Must have been a great week for your output!

    Margot- It's impossible to keep up with EVERYTHING.

    Jemi- Anytime. :)

    Elizabeth- I've found some new ones lately, and that's exciting to me.

    Jan- You have had some AMAZING posts lately! Really inspirational and impressive.

    Jen- Of course! And I can't wait for tomorrow's post on your blog...

  11. Great links! The Touch DNA post was interesting, and will come in handy for my mystery WIP. :)

  12. Just read your Drama post. Great set-up! What's she hiding/escaping from? That's well-illustrated in the submersion, and the drop-tracking spoke to her trying to just be in the moment.
    I also enjoyed the Beatnik post. I really don't know enough about the grand-hippies.

  13. PS Thanks for your feedback on my post, it was really helpful!

  14. great post- I'll take a look at the links.

  15. Bell- Glad it will help you!

    Will- I don't know. I've felt like her before, but I really just like trying to put myself in a moment and write from there. I'm not necessarily writing myself, but I'm trying to feel the character. Thanks, man! And ANYTIME!

    Summer- Enjoy!
