I LOVE YOUR BLOG!! **Special Saturday Edition**

Thank you SO much Meryl’s Musings for nominating A2A for the I LOVE YOUR BLOG award!!

We were all so excited to see that we are one of your favorite blogs and it definitely motivates us to keep on blog blog blogging along. So now it is our turn to nominate seven blogs for this award. And, once you receive this award, the rules are as follows:

1) Add the logo of the award to your blog.

2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you (as shown above).

3) Nominate at least seven other blogs.

4) Add links to those blogs on your blog.

5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

The other misses and I decided to each nominate favorite writing blogs that we’ve found super useful to us in some way. So here we go:

From Kate:

1 ~~ The Writer Beware! Blog-- Authors A.C. Crispin and Victoria Strauss dish the dirt behind publishing scams. It's like the writer's version of Law and Order, and it also has great information on how legitimate agents and publishers operate.

From Emily:

2 ~~ Agent Nathan Bransford--Excellent tips for aspiring writers querying agents or still learning their craft.

From Deena:

3 ~~ Cynthia Lord's LJ-- Her writing tips, her writing journey, and her writing style combined with her husband's photos are completely inspirational. I look forward to reading every one of her posts. She remains humble, gracious, and generous no matter how "famous" she gets as her fabulous book RULES gets more and more attention.

4 ~~ Kristin Nelson's blog-- Her short, daily posts are to the point, helpful to my writing, pitching, querying, and they give me insider information on what goes on in an agent's office, and the business side of publishing. She is also very generous and responsive to questions from readers.

From Kristina:

5 ~~ Shrinking Violet Promotions--Writers Robin LaFevers and Mary Hershey share great tips on how to promote your book when you are more introvert than extrovert.

From Lisa:

6 ~~ Disco mermaids-- They are funny and they talk writing and did I say they are funny?

7 ~~ Laini Taylor-- She talks about her writing life, and her husband's artistic life, and their cool life together.

We hope you take some time to check out these great blogs!

Thank you so much for the mention, Lisa! I'm honored. I've been wanting to do a post about blogs I love, and now this is the perfect opportunity.

Also, can't wait to meet you at the blogger's conference!
