Our week started with a review of Ben by Hosted Author (and Cliffhanger King Emeritus) C James. Ben is a short story spin-off of Circumnavigation and Renee Steven's review gives a good glimpse of this story.
This was followed by the second of our two-part series on Publishing. K.C. helped us a great deal in doing the interviews and presenting the information in a very informative piece.
Mid-week we looked at our Author Showcase - this week was Life by Promising Author Jian Sierra and Author Mark92's Another Fairy Story.
Our Tip Thursday was part one of a two-part series on Getting in the Mood - a look at how various authors get into the mood when they write. Pretty fascinating so far looking at the different ways that some authors prepare to write.
ComicFan provided us with the usual great prompts. this time in addition to a situational "The Family Get-together", he also provided a bit more unusual one in "The Sketch". I am looking forward to seeing the results of how authors approach these prompts.
Ending the week, we looked back at a November 2006 GA Newsletter entry by AFriendlyFace on Sequels.
That was our week - hope yours has been great!
