Guest Posts and Giveaways - The Full List!

by Stephanie Morrill

Jill and I have been on a blog tour this week, and in case you missed them, here are links to the blogs we were on. I'm noting the ones where the giveaways are still open with asterisks:

Just Simply Unique, where I talk about the cowriting process.
*Pink Sapphire, where Jill talks about 5 ways to respect your dream. (Last day to enter this one!)
Pen Over Sword, where we talked about how to pursue writing regardless of where you are in life.
*Pages from My Journal, where we did a very fun interview.
*The Life of a Teenage Writer, where we talked about procrastination and how to beat it.
*Emily Rachelle Writes, where we shared the biggest mistakes we feel we made early in our careers
*Notebook Sisters, where we did an interview and learned Jill isn't a real writer after all.
*The Ramblings of a Young Author, where we talked about what it means to write a bad first draft.
Book Hi, where we talked about if you should write for the market or yourself.
*Anna Schaeffer's blog, where Jill and I talked about what motivates us and why we love teen writers so much.
*Further Up and Further In, where Jill talks about how to give a good critique.
*Stori Tori, who was kind enough to feature the book and say nice things about it.

Many thanks to all our wonderful hostesses!

Next Monday we'll be announcing a new contest on the blog. I won't give away all the details yet...I'll just suggest that you might want to take a little time to dust the cobwebs out of your writing space. In case you suddenly decide to take a picture or two of it. And share it. With me and Jill.

You never know.

Happy Easter!


  1. Haha, Ms. Jill, we should work on your definition of subtle ;)

    I loved all the posts this week! They were so helpful as always, and it was fun trekking all over the internet with everyone :)

    I think my favorites were the "bad first drafts," "biggest mistakes," and "good critique" ones.

  2. Yep, really great posts this week.
    I just spend some minutes to copy-save all the posts I found helpful. And that where most of them, I think.

    If I have any favourites, they would be those about the 'bad first draft','How to pursue writing wherever you are in life' and '5 ways to respect your dream'

    But actually, I liked them all!

  3. I agree, very subtle ... The blog tour was awesome and I loved reading all of the different posts! I really liked the interviews, the bad first drafts, and the critiques ones. Thank you so much!

  4. I must say, it was pretty amazing what you guys did! I haven't read all the posts yet, though. But I'll definitely do it if I have time to today!

    This tour has actually showed me that there aren't many - or should I say "any" - guy authors out there. So this sort of pushed me to do something I've been wanting to do for a while, and that is start my own blog about writing.

    I've already created it, but it doesn't "offically" launch until April :P But next time you guys do this (there will be a next time, right?) add me to the roster!

    In Christ,

    1. Try, Paul. Liam is...well, not a girl and he writes pretty awesome posts about writing :)

    2. Agh Thank you so much! I haven't even read him yet and I already like him. Liam is a phenomenal name, and currently the most popular baby name this year...

    3. Paul, we would love to add you next time. Writing definitely draws lots of ladies, but there are some wonderful guys doing it too!

    4. Yes, let's not forget about Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Stephen King and James Patterson :) To name just four

    5. Mrs. Morrill: *feminine squeal of excitement* *regains composure* it would be a pleasure to have you :D

      Hannah: I'm sorry, I have a different interpretation of "guy" as most people do. I mean that by teenage guys. I recognize the great male authors (J.R.R. Tolkein, C.S. Lewis, Eoin Colfer, and Rick Riordian to name four more.)But not many teenage authors are guys, and it often frustrates me. Meh, oh well. I'm used to being around a large girl population without a single guy present. So I'm cool.

    6. Hahaha, yes, being around hoards of girls must be TORTURE for you ;)

  5. Thanks Stephanie!
    Can't wait for the next contest!
    By the way, did you see that you have exactly 700 followers now? Exciting!!😃

    1. Good eye, Fire! I think that just happened last night!

    2. Nope, you don't have 700 followers any now have 703 followers!! :)
