Double Awesomeness!

Today I'm excited to share two awesome events with you!  Last year I was able to participate in one, but I just missed the other.  So, I'll start with the one that I was lucky to stumble on through the efforts of a great friend, Shallee.

Over at her blog right now, she's raising money to give her friend, Michael, a chance to go to high school where he lives in Ghana.  As if that wasn't awesome in itself, the prizes for the raffle are beyond amazing! So head over there right now and donate to win one of three critique's from some amazing people!

The other awesome event is the second Writer's Crusade hosted by my lovely friend, Rachael Harrie.  I'm excited to be a part of the Crusade this year!  Here is a blurb from Rachael's blog about the crusade.

Basically, the Crusade is a way to link those within the writing community together with the aim of helping to build our online platforms. The Crusaders are all bloggers in a similar position, who genuinely want to pay it forward, make connections and friends within the writing community, and help build each others' online platforms while at the same time building theirs. 

Don't miss your chance to join the crusade.  Head over there right now to sign up!  

Have a great Monday!  I'll be looking for you all on the Crusader's list :)

  2. Hi fellow crusader! I love the splash of color on your blog.

    I'm a YA writer as well, mostly contemporary but my latest WIP has more zombies than my normal works (even one zombie is one more than my norm, but it's strangely kind of fun).

    Nice to meet you.

    Anyway, I'll follow you anywhere, except dark cold places, and places way up high :)
