I have so much to celebrate! But first I wanted to mention a book I just read...and liked :)

The Hourglass Door (Hourglass Door, #1)

I've finished the first two in the series and can't wait to get my hands on the third and final one that came out this summer! If you like time travel with a bit of romance, you'll love this :)

Now onto the celebrations! First of all, in case you haven't noticed, I hit 300 followers sometime in the last month! 

Sour Patch Kids for everyone :)

What, not good enough? Well, I guess I'll share my most favorite candy with you then. 

But that's not all! Mostly, I want to say 

I have the best blogging friends. You are all such a great support in my search to become a better writer!

The next thing to celebrate is... drum-roll please...my blog :) I've been blogging here for just over a year and have my Aspiring Author Interview anniversary on September 22! 

I've enjoyed these interview's SO much. Words cannot express. 

So, instead, I'll use my skills. Well, those that I've developed over the last couple of years with writing, critiquing, and reading "how to write and edit" books, blogs, websites, etc.

I'm giving away 3 First Chapter Critique's!

How do you enter? Easy. Follow my blog, comment on this post by 11:59 pm Sunday, September 18th, and come back next Tuesday to see if you won.

Want an extra entry? Blog about this giveaway and your name will be put in the drawing an extra time! It has to be on your blog...not Twitter or Facebook. Sorry, I like to keep it simple.

  5. 300! Congrats! My writer's group talked about these books just yesterday! I haven't read them and was told that I need to. Especially since she is coming to do a high school visit here this winter. Amazon here I come.

  6. Fantastic Michelle... CONGRATS! I am so happy for you. You were one of the first blogs I followed when I started blogging almost a year ago. My blogoversary is next month.
