Today I am going to talk about about all the various blog projects I have going on. Yes, I am addicted to blogging. I get an idea for a cool blog, I just…do it. I know, there is something seriously wrong with me. You’d think I have enough to write with three books due by March, without having to also write on my various blogs daily. Call them a reflection of different parts of my personality.
So my own personal author blog is DUSTED. I decided long ago I would not try and teach anyone how to write, or post updates on the ‘business’. There are a lot of authors out there who do that well. At DUSTED you get a peak at me, dorky as that person may be. I post updates on what I’m writing, pics of my latest crush, guest gardens and toes and pets, and just general ‘this is my life’ stuff.
COLOR ME HAPPY was born of my obsession with coloring. Yes, you heard that right. I like to color. I have so many Dover coloring books I’m not even going to tell you the total because you will roll your eyes. It started with those fashion coloring books as a means to research. I could color my heroine’s dress the way I wanted it to be in the story. But it’s quickly branched out to mandalas, animals, geometric designs, sealife, etc. If you’re interested in it, there’s a Dover coloring book for it. I like to post my colored pages at the blog and feature my fav coloring books, but haven’t done for a while because my scanner isn’t working! Coloring addicts, unite!
RIDING WITH THE TOP DOWN is my way to connect with my fellow writers and I feel like we have a sisterhood of sorts, at this blog (yes, that includes all you Followers). It’s been a great way to learn about my friends and share our lives with all of you.
SHAPESHIFTER ROMANCE is a blog that’s…you guessed it, all about shapeshifters. The authors there have all written shapeshifter romance and, well, if you love that genre, stop by and check us out!
I recently began the VAMPCHIX blog, and it’s really taken off (go figure; Vampires, dude!). It’s a blog for those who love vampires. We interview authors, have authors do guest posts, report the latest vampire news (man, is there a lot lately), talk books, movies, and anything to do with vampires. This week at the blog we’re holding a VampBash, and all week we’re giving away books, movies and assorted prizes. Do you like wine? Well Vampire.com gave us a coupon code for 10% all purchases at their sight for the week. (They sell vampire wine and chocolate. Num!)
The BITE CLUB was born from the VampChix blog. This is the only blog I’ve created that I don’t actually post at. (Well, not frequently anyway.) I drafted the lovely Anna Dougherty (lunaticcafe, who comments here at Riding) to head this blog and she’s taken it and run with it. Bite Club is an online book club. We only read vampires. This month marks our first read, and we’ll be discussing it starting on Friday. First rule of Bite Club? Tell everyone about Bite Club. Second rule of Bite Club? Don’t bleed on the freakin’ carpet. 😉
And finally, another offspring from VampChix is the VAMPBOYZ blog. This one is simple. I post pics of sexy, bloody vampire men every few days for you to drool over. Heh.
Do you think that’s enough blogs? I’m not sure. Might need to squeeze another one— Wait! Someone stop me before I do it again. No more blogs for me!
Okay, for sure.
So you’re here because you are reading a blog. Is it a part of your regular daily ‘blog crawl’? Do you have a blog crawl? Or do you just visit a random blog here and there? Tell me what appeals most to you about the blog format, and why blogs keep you coming back to read the contents.
I’ve got a copy of MIDNIGHT CRAVINGS for one commenter today!
