Weekly Wrap Up!



First, I want to make sure everyone saw yesterday's Blog - K.C. has a story stolen and the thief was selling it on Amazon. Amazon is looking into this, but as yesteray's blog noted, it is happening more and more. The blog also gives some good advice if it happens to you. I highly urge everyone to read it.


Other big news on the horizon is the looming July 31 deadline for our big Novella Anthology "Secrets Can Kill" - the deadline is July 31 (although if you need a few extra days, just contact Lugh in advance)


Speaking of Lugh - this seemed to be HIS week! We started our week as always looking at a Featured Story by a Hosted Author and got a really nice review of his :The Third Fire.


Toss-up Tuesday then gave us a very insightful interview with Lugh that among other facts, let us know of a mutual desire between Lugh and Mark Arbour... Um, I mean, as far as writing goes whistle.gif


For Author Showcase, we did a little change of format and instead of two interviews on two stories, we put up a compilation of reviews first on Promising Author Corvus' Mike and Winston, and then on Author Dan Umbero's Burying the Past. We gleaned these reviews from the reviews their readers posted on GA.Stories. Kinda a neat format if I do say so myself, and makes a nice change of pace.


K.C. gave us a great self-interview on Believable Characters for our Tip Thursday.


The week then wrapped up with our Writing Prompts from Comicfan, One of the prompts is one of the always fun word lists, and the other is Prom Date. Have you tried either? If so, share it with the community in the Writing Prompts forum. We also did our usual look at a past prompt response, but this time, I went all the way back to the very first writing prompt and some of the response, including a very interesting one from DomLuka...


That brings us back to our yesterday prompt about the stolen story and tips to deal with similar situations.


So - how was your week?
