My friends, George and Ashley, at Tekeme Studios, have another contest at their blog. This one ends on July 11, 2008. The free blog design contest was so popular that they decided to run it again. Visit them at: www.tekemestudios.blogspot.com
Author Kristi Holl has a wonderful blog called, "Writers First Aid." Right now, she is posting on the art of critiquing. Several recent posts addressed the myth that it was easier to get published back in the good ol' days. Take a stroll over to her blog, and tell her I said, "Hi." http://writers-first-aid blogspot.com
