Cool New Sites

As I wait for my own author site to make its debut (I promise, it's coming...), I'd love to share some other great new sites for your cyber stalking pleasure:

First, if you're a fellow writer/author, you'll want to check out the new book tour site called The Teen Book Scene, created by book blogging extraordinaires Kari (from A Good Addiction) and Kelsey (from The Book Scout). Not only are these girls awesome, they've mastered the art of online book tours and author promotion. If you're looking for a free way to help promote your (YA or MG) book, be sure to contact them to set up a tour!

In author news, Carrie Harris just launched her fantastically freaky WEBSITE. Check it out for yourself to get in on all the monster mania. If you sign up for her NEWSLETTER, you'll be entered for a chance to win an ARC of Bad Taste in Boys & a poster of the very cool homepage illustration... and who in their right mind wouldn't want a poster of a monster prom? That's prime dining room art right there.

But the author news doesn't stop there... Gae Polisner , another fellow 2k11er, also launched her fabulous AUTHOR SITE not too long ago. Check it out for the inside scoop on The Pull of Gravity (her 2011 YA debut) and her other writing endeavors.

Finally, have you ever wondered which famous writer your writing compares to? Take this fun QUIZ to find out. Word on the street is that it's had over 100,000 hits in a single day. Sounds like a lot of people are curious to see what their own writing stacks up to. And yes, I admit I took the quiz... several times. I got a different answer with each entry, ranging from Chuck Palahniuk to James Joyce. Not sure if that means the quiz isn't accurate or my writing has multiple personalities (or maybe both?), but it's a fun experiment nevertheless. If you try it, be sure to tell me which writer you get.

**Come back this Friday for an author interview & signed book giveaway with Kristin Walker**

I can't wait to see your website when you unveil it!

Ooh, a new tour site, cool! And by two very awesome bloggers. Love Carrie and Gae's websites! Carrie's is so cartoon awesome, and I love how crisp Gae's is.

Ha, that IWL thing is so fun. Apparently, my blog writing is totally HP Lovecraft worthy, but my actual story writing shifts between Ray Bradbury and Stephen King

Sounds like we're suffering from the same multiple writing personality disorder. I got HP Lovecraft & Stephen King too (yes, I spent way too much time playing around with this today). I'm jealous of your Ray Bradbury comparison though -- he's awesome!

Thanks for checking out the various sites! :)

I write like Stephenie Meyer. Cannot stop laughing.

And thanks for the linky love, Wonder Twin!
