Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).
Marcia is hosting again in October. The sign-up post is here, where you can find links for all the participants.
Last week, I got a book from author Ray Rhamey, his futuristic political/legal thriller, We the Enemy. It looks great!
I met Ray when we were on a panel together at the Wordstock book festival. He is a writer and editor and has a very fun blog called Flogging the Quill, where he offers to critique the first page of someone's manuscript, with readers' comments and votes on whether they would read past the first page.
The Wordstock panel was moderated by YA author and creator of the Novel Novice blog, Sarah Gundell. Sarah a real live wire! Very fun to work with.
Stephanie Guerra, author of a YA novel Torn and contributor to the popular readergirlz blog, was the third member of the panel. Stephanie is a wonderful woman who, along with motherhood and several other pursuits, works on a literacy program for troubled teens.
