Around the Blog in 7 days

I thought I'd try to discipline myself into blogging more regularly by scheduling a Wednesday "Around the Blog in 7 days" post where I share some interesting bits I've picked up on during my excessive and endless hours of blog cruising during the preceding week.

If there's a romance reader inside you, you'll love this: Smart Bitches found a wierd romance novel cover and invited their commentators to describe the scene. Read the comments, I laughed so hard, I actually started crying.

And then the Minxes of Romance have got a brand new blog that promises to be a regular stop over for me.

Carina Press is gearing up to launch 7th June and have been spotlighting their launch authors this month. Pop over to the Carina Press blog to check out the last 20 days of posting, and there's more to come right up until launch day.

As a writer, I love to scour articles about successful writer's previous rejections. There's something strangely validating in realising how many authors were not an instant success from the first moment they decided to submit.



  1. Thanks so much for publishing these links Claire! Especially the one about the authors who were rejected several times before finding success. Very inspirational!

  2. Pleasure Amanda. It is reassuring to realise rejection doesn't mean you can't write :)
