I honestly never know whether people check blogs on Sunday or not, but in case you are inside on what might be a lovely day, here’s some news: I’m on my honeymoon! Somewhere warm with crazy creatures. (I may tell you about it; I may not. Sometimes a girl wants her privacy.)
Anyway, I couldn’t deal with the thought of letting the blog lie fallow for the upcoming (glorious) 9 days, so I enlisted some of my favorite internet-happy writer types to guest-blog for me, on the theme “On the Scene with Nice and Mean.” For the next few days, the following people will tell you their reminscences of niceness and meanness:
Monday April 12th–actually me, posting automatically, about Library Appreciation, thanks to a series created by Shelli Johannes Welles
Tues April 13th—author Micol Ostow (SO PUNK ROCK AND OTHER WAYS TO DISAPPOINT YOUR MOTHER, and lots and lots of other books)
Weds April 14th—Irene Latham (LEAVING GEE’S BEND)
Thurs April 15th— Emily Kristin Anderson (online as EmilyTastic)
Fri April 16th— Tami Lewis Brown (author or the forthcoming SOAR, ELINOR!)
Mon April 19th— Susan Robertson (blogging as Wastepaper Prose)
Tuesday April 20th–Margie Gelbwasser (author of the forthcoming INCONVENIENT)
…and then you’re back to me again! So please, stop by and savor. And if you want to know more about these authors before they blog, you know, I hear there’s something called Google that allows you to check them out. Yes, I should be linking to their websites and books. I know. It’s only polite. But would you rather I did that or cleaned the kitchen floor before I left so I didn’t come home agahst that I am married yet live in such gummedness?
Thanks, guest bloggers! Looking forward to it!
