No Monday Book Madness Today. Just Awesomeness.

Forgive my absence this past week. My Internet connection flipped me the middle finger, as well as my laptop's battery cord. But whatever. I'm back now :)

In honor of my total delight at being back in the blogosphere, I thought I'd change things up a bit. Today is supposed to be Monday Book Madness, and I'm supposed to gush about a book (upcoming or published).

Not today.

Today, it's all about awesome. Operation Awesome, that is.

What's Operation Awesome, you ask? Oh, no big deal. Just a group of writers (and critique partners) hell-bent on giving back to the writing community. You know, a group that will feature interviews with literary agents, authors, and awesome bloggers. And... I think they'll throw the occasional contest and stuff...

Oh, yeah... And I'm in it :)

Here's what you do: go to the OA blog and follow us to participate in September's Mystery Agent One-Line Pitch Contest! If you already have an agent, or if your manuscript isn't ready to make the agent rounds yet, I promise you'll still have a good time over at the OA blog. Pinky swear.

Our official launch date is this Wednesday, September 1st, but we already have some posts up, as well as our bios (please don't read mine... I'm begging you...). 

Can't wait to see you all there later this week!

Tell me, buddies: What did you do while I was gone? Get any writing done? Read anything? 


  1. Life got in the way of my writing. LAME.
    I just followed operation awesome, it sounds in fact, awesome!

  2. Awww good luck with your operation awesome!!!! I can't see the pic you have up here but guess your laptop is still sulking away somewhere!! LOL!! Oh but I love the nutella pic on the OA website!! Nutella so ROCKS!

    I've been re-writing, re-writing, re-writing! It's taken awhile for me to get into my stride but the moment I started to slash and burn and slash my ms some more - mercy!! - kernels of seedlings are sloooowly taking root.

    Sorry, having been locked with my pc for nearly 72 hours I'm grabbing the nearest nice bloggie friend who asks and am answering! :-)

    Take care

  3. Man, I'm sorry about your internet connection's rude hand gestures! I couldn't see the blog pic either, but the content, as always, is AWESOME! So excited for your first OA post next Monday!!

  4. That sounds so awesome! The pitch thing, not your internet sucking (which I really hate!). It's nice to have you back. =)

  5. Glad to see you back! I'm over and following at OA, it sounds like it's going to be great :-)
