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).


Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop – March 17th to 20th

If you would like to add your book(s) or bookish related giveaway to this hop, link to the host’s site by clicking on the badge - sign ups end March 13th. There are currently 200 blogs participating for this hop.  How fun is that?

Please stay tuned and thanks for reading!

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.
