Hi! I’m back! Soooo, How did it go? Did the Authors take good care of you?

Oh, how I miss the roller coasters, beaches, shows… and yes, some of the best snorkeling ever.  I also got to swim with a dolphin for the first time in my life.  My kids have no idea how good they have it, I swear!

I may be cajoled into posting a few pictures once I get unpacked and see what’s actually in the cameras.

In the meantime…

How did the authors treat you while I was gone?  I am looking forward to reading everyone’s posts.  I hope you received some wonderful words of wisdom from these very talented people.  I am sure you were in good hands.

So, while I am unpacking— and driving up north to pick up my peppy poodle from her vacation at the shore with her birth family— let me ask you a few questions:

Which author post did you love the most and why?

Is there anyone in particular I should invite back?

If the author posted a book link, did you buy their novel? (or do you already own it?)

I’m mainly curious how this all worked out.  It was a lot of work bringing this all together, and I’d like some feedback as to whether it was worth your while.

  1. Welcome back! I loved reading all the guest blogs; each one had something unique to share. J.A. Belfield’s post was my favorite though. It was interesting to hear her take on why zombie fiction just isn’t her thing, though I hope some of the recommendations I made will change her mind!
    Also I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blogger Award! http://thecrueltyfreereview.wordpress.com/2012/06/26/on-lovely-blog-award/

    • Thanks so much for the award! I really appreciate it! If you haven’t picked up Julie’s Darkness and Light, take a look. I just finished her “Instinct” as well and loved it.

  2. Welcome back. Sounds like you had a great vacation

  3. Enjoyed all the posts, but like others are saying, it’s good to have you back. 🙂

  4. Welcome back! I’m glad your dolphin swim was all you’d hoped for.

    I absolutely and completely enjoyed every guest you had. Claire’s post was very funny. For me, however, I liked Jon Gibb’s and Danielle McPhail’s posts the best. They were very informative and I’d love to read more of what they have to say about this crazy world of editing and publishing.

    Can’t wait to see the vacation pictures (except the one with you-know-who. Eh hemm, privacy issues, you know.) 🙂

  5. All the posts were great, but I’m glad you’re back. 🙂

  6. Welcome back! Glad you enjoyed some time away:) My kids don’t know how good they have it either *sighs* Although I scanned your guest posts and thought they were wonderful, I have to confess that I didn’t read them indepthly like I usually do yours. It’s kinda like when the teacher is absent and there’s a sub, you just don’t pay as much attention. Sorry, I know I’m a brat. But I do have another excuse for slacking . . . I signed a publishing deal while you were away *squeals* You can check out my blog if you want the dets~cheers!

  7. where’d ya go?

  8. Welcome back – missed you! 😉 (What gifts did you bring us back?).

    It was fun hearing from several different authors over the week – I personally preferred the ones that spoke more generally about writing rather than focussing on a specific genre, but that’s only because the specific genres weren’t ones that I am specifically interested in, so that’s just a personal preference. I can certainly imagine how much work it was for you though to arrange all that, so well done to you that it all went smoothly!

  9. welcome back. can’t wiat to see pictures.
