Around the Blogosphere

I have (mostly) caught up on work, so I have vowed to spend the morning answering the questions left in comments during my recent absences. While I'm doing that, you might check out these links:

Joely Sue Burkhart has redesigned her blog/website, and I really like the new look. But I liked the old one, too.

Another reason I need to catch up on my blog reading -- I miss wonderful posts like this one from Douglas Clegg back on August 24th (Keep an eye on this mentoring thing, too -- if I could go back in time, knowing what I know now, and ask for a mentor, #1 on the wishlist would be Doug.)

I'm so far behind I didn't realize Marjorie M. Liu is back from China; I went over to check on her to make sure she wasn't caught in the latest typhoon. But she is back, and has redesigned the look of her LJ, where she also posts that her novel The Iron Hunt is coming out in audio format in November (I am so buying that; I'd love to listen to it in the car when I go on my next road trip.)

Each week Jordan Summers will be giving away 2 ARC copies of Red, her November release from Tor. All you have to do for a chance to win one is leave a comment on her blog or enter via her contact page. Head over to her blog and get the details here.

  1. Thank you, PBW! *beams* I'm so happy to have escaped yahell! The old site was running on bubble gum and duct tape since I was hacked a few months ago. We deliberately tried to leave the /blog url available so people didn't have to update their blogrolls or feeds.

    Never looked like it. ;)

    That was a good idea -- I'm usually so far behind on updating links that I don't find the new URL for a couple of months (which I think I did to you the last time, if I remember correctly.)

  3. I think you should mentor someone. *grin* I'd like to apply for that position please. I'll even provide the whip for you to crack over my head to get me going again.

    Come on, it's very pretty whip. I know you'll enjoy wielding it. LOL

    Yeah, I know, Doug is making me feel like a real slouch. I used to mentor occasionally, but it's a delicate process, and I worry I might mess up someone more than I'd help them.

    Honey, just WHO has been mentoring you? Lol.

    Yes, but it's the Japanese ropes you have to worry about. ;) Seriously, if I ever decide to go back into mentoring, I'll e-mail you first.
