Pay It Forward blogfest

"Pay It Forward" is a blogfest dreamed up by QQQE and Alex J. Cavanaugh, and, what's more, it's the first blogfest I've taken part in! It's designed to help highlight three blogs you think worthy of more attention. Here are mine:

Surrounded by Books
Blog for author, Cherie Reich. A great blog that promotes writers, offers helpful insights - such as the "Ask an Editor" sections - and has flash fiction on a Friday that I always enjoy reading.

In Shadows
Blog for romance author, Brynna Curry. A nice variety of posts, including interviews, short stories, and, currently, some very pertinent recipes for Halloween :).

YA Book of the Day
A blog focusing on the YA market, with some fantastic posts on YA books, including reviews, recommendations, and giveaways. Also, some general discussion on writing/reading-type topics.

I'm now off to check out everyone else's recommendations :).


Stina Lindenblatt said...

Thanks for the great links. I can't believe I didn't know about YA Book of the Day.

J. A. Bennett said...

Coming to check you out from the hop. I like your blog background :)

Jennifer Hoffine said...

Ooo. The YA Book of the day does look neat.

Also, yay, Critique Circle (I saw them on the links below).

Hart Johnson said...

Ha! Congrats on your first blogfest! They're pretty great, eh? I popped over from Katie's blog--looks like great recommendations!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Hi! I hopped over from Creepy Query Girl--so much fun making new friends! :-)

Nicole Zoltack said...

I love Cherie's bog! I included her in my list too.

Cherie Reich said...

Aww! I feel all special. :D

I seriously don't know how I've missed some of these blogs, but I'm remedying it right now.

Matthew MacNish said...

Hi CD. I'm here as the co-host from the Pay It Forward blogfest. Thanks so much for signing up.

And I wasn't following your blog until just now, so the fest is working!

Christine Rains said...

Cherie's blog is fabulous! I'm off to check out the other two now. Thanks for sharing. :)

C D Meetens said...

Stina: Thanks!

JA: That would be because the extra-talented Parajunkee designed it :).

Jennifer: I love CritiqueCircle. I joined last December, and have learnt so much since then.

Hart: I would have to agree. This one's been fantastic!

Shannon: I agree, and I'm so honoured Katie recommended me!

Nicole: Cherie's blog is definitely one of my favourites.

Cherie: You deserve the specialness :).

Matthew: Thanks for the blogfest. I'm having a lot of fun getting to know lots of new people.

Christine: Couldn't agree more, and you're welcome :).
