Spreading The Awesome!

I had a whole other post idea for today until I saw this on Lisa and Laura Write:

Launching WriteOnCon with a BANG - Query contest with Joanna Stampfel-Volpe.

Here is a peek at the squeesome news.

"In the meantime, one of our star panelists, ├╝ber agent Joanna Volpe of Nancy Coffey Literary & Media Representation, has generously offered to get this party started with a mega query critique contest. And some of you (ahem) have some new and improved queries that we're sure will catch Joanna's eye."

So, feel free to hop over to LiLa's blog and check it out. I know I am :)

Another of my favourite things to do on a Friday is to check out posts I may have missed from around the blogosphere. There are great links worth checking out over at Adventures in Children's Publishing. Then it's over to Seeing Creative for Stina's Cool Links Friday. As well as the others I frequent...but this post would be way too long.

And finally.

With the release of Mockingjay so close I can taste it, The League Of Extraordinary Writers are having a contest where two people can win a copy of the book. I know I can't wait till the 24th of August for my last Katniss and Peeta fix.

Yeah, yeah I know there's Gale too, but this Brit gal is Team Peeta!

Happy Friday. :)

Yay!! Links for me!! If I win the Mockingjay book, I'll send it your way because I haven't read any of them!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Awww. Thanks for the link love. :D

Okay, why is it that everyone else is getting Mockingjay on Aug 24, and it isn't being released in Canada until the 30th???? :(

I'm on team Gale. But that's only 'cause he has dark hair, and I have a thing for dark haired guys. Otherwise, I'm sitting on the fence. I love both guys.

Thanks so much for the link! And I am right there with you waiting for Mockingjay. Fortunately, WriteOnCon is going to keep us all occupied for a while. So much amazing stuff going on -- and the query critique contest. Wow!


Lydia Kang said...

So much good stuff! Thanks!

Amparo Ortiz said...

Team Peeta all the way, baby!!

I STILL haven't read Catching Fire, but I'll get my hands on it before Mockingjay comes out. Pinky swear.

Okay. Now back to writing :)

I hope you have a terrific weekend!

Happy Friday! Yay for Friday - what a week. Thanks for the linkage!

Theresa Milstein said...

I agree - awesome contests.

Next week, I'm reading book 2. I've been holding off until book 3 was closer to coming out. So I haven't chosen a team yet.

Renae said...

Great links, thanks Lindsay! I can't wait for the 24th either. I'm right there with you on team Peeta!

Hey, Lindsay! Boy, it's been a long time since I made the rounds! Been holed up writing for the summer, and just peeking my head up to say hi to the blogosphere. Can't wait to check out WriteOnCon!!

Susan Fields said...

Peeta's awesome, but I'm Team Gale. It'll be so interesting to see how it all ends up! It seems like there's no happy solution here.

Thanks for the great links!
