My dear friend Chris Eldin (formerly known as Church Lady) is sitting in Dubai coming up with wonderful fun things for us writers to do. So she came up with Author's Week, a lovely venture she thought up a while back. I'm paraphrasing her own blog announcement:
To kick things off, she's having a special day on Saturday May 3 with an Oldies but Goodies Contest.
Who are the Oldies but Goodies, you ask. Well, they are just the swellest group of authors who first supported her idea of "Author's Week." To thank them for their encouragement, Chris will be hosting a weekend contest based on some personal information she was able to dig up.
And she'll be giving away cool prizes from Dubai. The Oldies but Goodies authors are listed below. They might pop in. But really it's about thanking them for their generosity in the past.
Elaine Alexander DEATH AT DEACON POND
Mary Cunningham CURSE OF THE BAYOU
Evil Editor NOVEL DEVIATIONS
Edna Cabcabin Moran THE SLEEPING GIANT
John Elder Robison LOOK ME IN THE EYE
Patricia Wood LOTTERY
And then, there's Author's Week May 5 - May 9, in which I will be participating.
May 5 - May 9 will feature the following authors giving away books and making appearances on Chris's blog. Come chat, make jokes, win prizes!!! Every day, 9am - 9pm eastern U.S. time.
