Happy Book Birthday to my Critique Partner, Michelle McLean!

Woot! *throws streamers* Happy Birthday, HOMEWORK HELPERS: ESSAYS AND TERM PAPERS!! This awesome book bears the name of none other than my Operation Awesome partner in crime, Michelle McLean! She is an amazing writer, whether it's fiction or nonfiction. If you aren't following her blog yet, you need to get over there now! Not only is she having a big giveaway to celebrate her book debut, but her daily posts are some of the best writing advice I've seen on the web. She didn't get this nonfiction contract for nothing! This girl knows how to write a fun, conversational, spot-on how-to!

Lots of people are talking about her today, including these guys:

Christine Fonseca, 
Elana Johnson, 
Bethany Wiggins and Suzette Saxton
and Lisa Amowitz.

If you comment on each blog, that's how many entries you'll get in the big giveaway going on all week. And be sure to check back here next Saturday (not this one, but next: Jan 29th) because I'll have a brilliant (Seriously. I'm not exaggerating. This will change your writing life.) guest post by the skillful and delicious author.

Now for a few other nuggets of awesome around the blogosphere:
  • WriteOnCon has invited Pippin Properties (amazing collaborative literary agency) to live chat with all their followers on Monday, January 24th, 5:00pm EST! You will not want to miss this! So do your research and tune in to ask your questions.
  • Congratulations to Beth Revis, author of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, for debuting on the New York Times Bestseller List at #7! Must be a magic number and bodes well for this book b/c Kiersten White's Paranormalcy occupied exactly the same spot in its first week! 
What's got you excited on the blogosphere today?


  1. Michelle rules. That's all that need be said (by me at least).

  2. Woohoo Michelle!!! So exciting :)

  3. How exciting for her....I will go there now to check it out! Wishing her all the best and congrats! Also, congrats to her wonderful support system, I'm sure she is grateful to have a friend and blog partner like you! :)
