“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

May I break into your day with a couple or three newsflashes? Quinn's 100 Follower Giveaway, My 200 follower confusion and Alex J Cavanaugh's pre-release shout out for CassaStar.
Quinn is having a Giveaway over at Seeing, Dreaming Writing to celebrate reaching 100 followers. He is giving away a $40 Amazon Voucher which I think is very generous. Pop over to Quinn's blog and check it out. You never know, you might be the lucky recipient. Contest ends this Saturday night, so hurry. I already know the books I want and could use Quinn's voucher for - I've been enjoying Nora Robert's Circle Trilogy and need to get: Morrigan's Cross and Dance of the Gods. Who knows? I might get lucky! And I'm trying out my Amazon Associates link. If you click on Nora's books and buy I warn you, I might get a commission.
Morrigan's Cross (The Circle Trilogy, Book 1)
Dance of the Gods (The Circle Trilogy, Book 2)
Quinn gathered 80 followers in a week, so he must be doing something right! He'll be celebrating 200 followers soon, no doubt.
Which reminds me: I am approaching 200 followers and have been sweating over what to do. I'd like to do a blogfest, but with so many blogfests around I doubt I can do it before NaNoWrMo kicks in on Nov 1. I know the blogfest I want to do, but it may have to wait for 250 followers. What do you think?
Also, Alex the Great, or Alex J Cavanaugh as he is now known, has a book release on October 19th. I, and many other bloggers, am helping Alex with some pre-release publicity. Here are the details of his book. Prepare to be inundated on the 19th.
