People, COOL STUFF is on it’s way to the blog. Some I can mention and some I have to stay zipped about…for now. But stay tuned friends, for great TBM stuff is in store!
First and foremost, many of you have noticed I’m not the only person writing Setting Thesaurus Entries any more. Indeed, I have unleashed Project Awesome, whereby guest entries by your favorite published authors will be appearing here at The Bookshelf Muse! This is a fantastic opportunity for all writers, because these authors are selecting settings FROM THEIR NOVELS and using them to share their descriptive talents with us.
All Guest Entries by these authors will be featured in the sidebar with a *GE* next to their setting. And maybe, just maybe, you might want to check back on Saturday to see who our next guest Author is. Like, even if you were say, Across the Universe.
In other news, I have a visitor! CRITTER, the creation of artist Ian Sands, has popped in for a visit, the last stop on his tour of the KIDLIT world. The second I lifted him from the envelope, he started exploring the house and meeting the locals.
The Travelocity Gnome filled him in on the weirdness he can expect to find here in the Ackerman home.
Aragorn recommended a few costume choices for Halloween in between lessons in orc slaying. And, he dished some dirt on Legolas, but that’s a post for another day.
Critter, who has visited with many excellent writing personalities over the past year including authors Beth Revis, Cynthia Leitch Smith, Jill S. Alexander and PJ Hoover, has been all over the world on a giant adventure. He originally hails from Christy Evers at Christy’s Creative Space, where you can visit for the full low down about Critter, where he’s been and the mission to help St. Jude’s.
I’ve got some special stuff planned with Critter (including a VIP event!) to make sure he ends his world tour in style. In the meantime, I feel it’s my duty to make sure he’s ready for the Apocalypse, so I fixed him up with something educational to read.
