And I'm thinking this falls into the PR parade...

Anyway, over the next couple of months I'll be hosting a regular feature on my blog. How To Thursdays.

Every two weeks I'll have a writing professional over to talk about writing, editing, criting, literary theory. For example some of the interviews I'm working on now are interviews with Leah Cypess (Mistwood, Greenwillow 2010) about worldbuilding, Kirstin Cronn-Mills (The sky always hears me and the hills don't mind, Flux 2009) about writing contemp YA, Tessa Gratton (Blood Magic, Random House 2011) about queering the world.

Every two weeks there'll also be a contest. A giveaway of one of the books of the writer I'm interviewing, a critique, anything!

Now I only just posted the introduction post and I'll try to promote it all over the interwebs, but I'd be ever so grateful if those of you with blogs and twitter want to link to it or mention it or something.
I like the bloggity traffic of course (hey, I'm not going to deny that! Wink ) but most of all the professionals I talked to are incredibly helpful and excited about it, so I just want to give this as big an audience as possible.

Thank you flower

Hey, sounds really cool! So I can Twitter it, but, um, since I have like ten followers it won't make much of an impact. But I will do it for the principal of the matter. Wink I could post it on Facebook, but, alas, I have like a few more friends on Facebook than on Twitter. Woe, woe, woe is me! Wink Lol!!

Great post and contest. I'll definitely pass the word along after I'm released from this 9 to 5 nightmare.
