Savvy Verse & Wit ~ is having a month long celebration for and around Independent and Small Presses during March!  (Banner links to announcement post for the event).

To Help Celebrate - stop by during this month long event. If you would like to help spread the word “snag a badge” (right click and save image as) from this post for your blog and link it to Savvy Verse & Wit.

I created these badges for this event. Between the two of us (Serena and I) I  think they ended up looking “fresh and springy”.  Perfect for a March celebration around small and indie publishers.


What's Coming Next? ~ We have some great news since I will be posting the winners of the recent book giveaways some time next week. Since it’s the first time using the new Google forms I am not sure how long the process will take – fiddly new stuff can drive me nuts. So please bear with me.

Even Better News:  We have a couple of new book giveaways coming up as well as one special offer – especially for the writer’s in our readership. They will be posted one per week till the next book hop – Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop. It happens March 17th through  the 20th. What a great way to spend St. Paddy’s day which should make it particularly lucky with all those 4 leaf clovers and all.

Upcoming Giveaways:

  • The Thieves of Darkness ~ by Richard Doetsch (1 pocket book copy for US only)
  • WWW: Wake ~ by Robert J. Sawyer (5 hardcover copies for international shipping)
  • A Professional Edit for your short story WIP/Synopsis!  Lou Aronica – award winning editor and author of Blue, has offered to edit our winner's short story or synopsis (up to twenty double-spaced pages).

Badges look great! And that short story review sounds like a good contest, too. I'll keep an eye open for it.

Logan -
I was especially thinking about you when creating this post. I was going to send you a link of it when its live just in case :)

I know how busy everyone gets.

It will be interesting to see how many people enter - I think the lurkers may come out.

How is the civil war story going?

Oh and thank you... :)

The way most of my stories go. Somewhat thought out but stranded on a deserted island that I can't find my way back to. I usually make a few thousand words into a piece, sometimes even far enough to having an outline, but I can't seem to finish anything. It's frustrating. But if I win, I've got a piece in mind to submit for review...

Logan -
There is a good reason why a lot of people are not getting published. Writing a decent story with all the right elements is very complicated and making it good has got to be even tougher.

Have you noted that I have not reviewed that writing software yet? I am still trying to piece it all together.

I hope you do win - since I will want to ask you a bunch of questions. :)

Interesting stuff.
