Highlighting other Writers
I found Rachel Morgan over the long weekend and saw that she had released the third installment in her Creepy Hollow novelette series, Traitor.
Violet and Nate may have escaped the labyrinth, but only one of them came out unscathed. Nate is now the bearer of a mysterious eye-shaped tattoo, a mark he has no memory of receiving. While Vi is intent on discovering the meaning of the tattoo, Nate seems less interested. His experience in the labyrinth has caused recurring nightmares, and he’d prefer to pretend none of it ever happened. But Vi has never been one to let a mystery go unsolved, and she’ll do whatever she can to discover who’s behind the tattoo—even if it means leaving Nate out of her plan.

If you're like me, since I'm new to Rachel's writing, you may have to start from the beginning, but I don't think she'll mind. Check it out for yourself and pay Rachel a visit on her blog!
The other blog I found highly interesting over the weekend was NA Alley. It is run by seven bloggers spreading the awareness of a genre still in its infancy called NA, or New Adult, fitting between YA and Adult. I had never heard of it before, but it makes sense. The college years usually just get lumped into adult fiction, but NA gives them a place all their own. It's fascinating and I'm thrilled to have found it. Pay NA Alley a visit, don't fret about the pickpockets, and join the discussion!

Have you heard of the 2012 Debut Author Challenge? It's a blogfest challenge to read 12 YA or MG books that have been published (or self-published) this year by debut authors and review them on your blog and Goodreads.
Hey, I'm a debut author with a YA book available! I can be a participant and a promoter. *devious grin* So I'm working on getting Provex City promoted in the challenge. I added it to the official Goodreads list--though I'm not really sure if I was supposed to do that myself. I emailed the moderator, but haven't yet gotten a reply. Hopefully, this challenge can help Provex City get a few more reviews!
