If you haven't signed up for the Gearin' Up to Get an Agent Blogfest, now's your time!

I'm going to have to bow out of the awe inspiring posts today.  I feel like mush.  Meaning I am completely under the weather.  Please forgive me:(

I will say we have less than three weeks before the Gearin' Up to Get an Agent Blogfest so if you haven't signed up yet, what are you waiting for?  It will be loads of fun and critiques will be given by some greats! To check out the events we have going on for the July blogfest go here.


Also I haven't updated my Firsts Fridays June calendar to the left, but we have already had two pretty killer authors you can check out here.  And there is more goodness to come.

Here is the FF low down for the rest of the month:

June 17th- Jennifer Hiller: debut author, her novel Creep is coming out July 5th through Simon & Schuster/Gallery Books

June 24th- Kathleen Rushall: literary agent, recently made a change from Waterside Productions to Marshal Lyon Agency.  She is going to enlighten us on the ins and outs of what writers wanting an agent need to know.  

She is also helping me with the July blogfest.  Kathleen will be choosing the winner of the first 200 words novel contest.  She will also be giving said winner a query and first 30 page critique.  Now I don't think I have to tell you how valuable it is to have your work chosen and then critiqued by a literary agent.  Who knows what could happen if she really digs it.  So have those fulls ready! 

 Okay, this is about all I can handle for now, I'm going to put a movie in for the kiddos and curl up and rest.

Until next time.
Keep learning.  Keep writing.
