No people like author people!

Congrats to the winner of Day 4: Shari Green!!!

Shoot me an email at muchlanguage(at)gmail(dot)com, with a mailing address.

Now back to regularly sheduled programming-

If you're a music-aholic like me, you know the original line is

"There's no people like show people."

However, if you're a writer-blogger (or even a reader-blogger) you'll also know that authors are the most amazing people in the world. I'm not just saying that because I want to be one, either.

I don't know if there's another community like writers, from aspiring to published and everything in between. I've been on the blogospehere for less than a year, and I've learned so much. And I've made some amazing writer friends. Some are really fun. Others are fountains of knowledge. But everyone's so supportive.

And I've discovered that authors are some of the most reachable celebrities in the world. Even NYT bestselling authors, are willing to take a little time out for a small fry like me.

So, without further ado, I'd like to thank the authors who've provided recommendations and interviews, this week and before.

Kiersten White, PARANORMALCY
Sophie Jordan, FIRELIGHT
Denise Jaden, LOSING FAITH
Lisa Desrochers, PERSONAL DEMONS
Dianne K. Salerni, WE HEAR THE DEAD
Linda Villarosa, PASSING FOR BLACK

Thank you for taking the time out to be a part of the giveaways. And thank you for being amazing people in general.

(If you're releasing a book or you know an author who is, shoot me an email. I love giving stuff away- in case you somehow missed that in the last 20 or so books.

And thanks to you guys, the readers. Welcome aboard to those who've just joined me at PoC and many thanks to those who've been around listening to the insanity that is me. Especially to all who participated (and will participate) in the actual INSANITY! You guys totally rock!!!

There is just Day 5 to be drawn, and then the second edition of INSANITY rolls to a close. But don't despair if you didn't win this time around, my blog anniversary is October 17th. And I'm sure you know by now, such a momentous occasion couldn't pass unmarked.

Because life is always better with a little INSANITY!

Hi, Claire! Thanks for the shout out! It was a pleasure to interview with you!

PS -- Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm glad you liked Elisha. I'm rather overly fond of him myself. :D

Wow! Totally just made my day discovering I won! Thank you! :D I'll email you my address.

The writing community really is amazing, isn't it? Other writers, from newbies to multi-published, have all been so supportive and helpful along my "writing journey".
