Wanted: A Few Brave Violets

Okay, so you just have to be a little brave. Honest.

Actually, for a long time Mary and I have been discussing how we can shine the spotlight on some of you out there. Our Milestone Mondays have been one way, and a few of you have stepped up and guest blogged for us here, which we greatly appreciate.

But (with a resounding duh!) we finally thought of another way; we'd like to start showcasing some of our published violets. I don't know about you, but Mary and I are curious as all get out as to what you all are up to and where you are finding success in your lives!

If you’re a violet with a published a book, email us and let us know the title. We’d like to begin featuring some of your titles in the sidebar, either on a rotating basis or in a list, depending on how many of you there are. If you have more than one book published, go ahead and send a list of titles, but make sure and indicate your most current one so we’ll know that’s the one to spotlight.

Additionally, if you would be interested in donating a copy of your most recent book for a prize in some of our upcoming contests, let us know that, too! We'll be sure and talk it up before we give it away.

Just a note here, one of the things Mary and I are absolutely committed to is making this a sight about promoting, not someplace where our readers are promoted at. This is merely a way to keep us all apprised of what other violets are doing, feed our curiosity about each other, and find small ways to get comfortable with that spotlight.

So email us with your titles. Don't be shy, now!

Thanks, Robin! Okay, Violets and Vins, you've got your marching orders. We want to hear from you!

Some of you may not know this, but Stephanie Meyer was one of our original posters for Milestone Monday. Steph announced in our rolls that she had finished a polished rough draft of a YA about vampires and abstinence. Yep, this is where it ALL started. Wha-a-t? You didn't see that in Twilight's Acknowledgments?

Gosh, I hope she didn't forget to mention it!

Oh, wait, I think I may be making this up. Robin, remind me, will you? Did we launch Stephanie Meyer here, or did I just read a lot of her books recently? I'm certain it is one or the other.

So now you all are seeing why Mary is such a great fiction writer, right? :-)

Hahahaha.... Well, I wish my book was out, or that I had a release date... But when it gets there, I'll let you know!!
