Blogger Spotlight

There are a few blogs I have followed for some time that just seem to grow funnier and more interesting every day (most of you already follow them).

Jennifer Hillier writes thrillers and her debut novel Creep comes out in July. She just finished a 4-part prison series on her blog detailing a visit to the Washington Corrections Center for Women. For research, of course.  She has one of the funniest and most interesting blogs in the 'sphere.

Shannon Whitney Messenger  holds the best contests ever and just reading about all the events she juggles along with her writing makes me need a nap.  She is like the ARC Queen so this is latest contest is your chance to win advance copies of what is sure to be the year’s best sellers!!!!

Claire Dawn is another interesting blog I follow and that’s not just because she is from Barbados and currently teaches and resides in Japan. She has a unique perspective on the world and right now she needs your help to create a list of the top 100 books every writer should read.

But the most important part of this post is to shine the spotlight on a blogger that I recently discovered and feel deserves some attention. We are all busy and it takes a lot of time to surf our fav blogs let alone branch out to discover new ones but I hate for you to miss out on this one.

L.G. Smith is freakin' hilarious and her blog Bards and Prophets is smart and sarcastic which appeals to me for some reason…
Check out what she has to say, read a few posts and I guarantee you'll be hooked. 

Stephanie Ferris had a great idea on how to discover new blogs/bloggers (or new to you anyway). When commenting on a favorite blog, click on the person’s name that commented before you and check out theirs. Try it, you might be surprised.

I’d say have a great day but it’s a Monday so I’ll just say…have the best day you can.


  1. The light! It burns!

    Okay, I'll own up to the sarcasm. Not much use in denying that. But I have a loooooong way to go to catch up with your wit.

    Thanks for the shout out! Wow. :)

    And thanks for pointing me toward some great blogs. Off to check them out.

  2. Oh wow, thanks for mentioning all these blogs! I'm super excited to read them now. :D

  3. Aw, thanks for the shout out! I'm not nearly as funny as you, though. But I'm working on it :)

  4. Oh I don't know all of those! I heart Shannon and Stephanie! I'll try Steph's idea.

  5. Awww, thank you so much. You reminded me I need to do one of these kind of blogs. I haven't done that in a while.

  6. I like this idea of a blogger spotlight! I might steal it (and I'd name you as the source, of course!)

    Thanks for visiting my blog today by the way! Nina


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
