Writer Blogs You Should Follow
My sister has been telling me for years I should start a blog. But, she’s not a writer so what does she know? Apparently everything! After much hemming and hawing I’ve finally got my act together to start a blog. Considering I have no idea where to being I’ve been paying extra special attention to the blogs I love and how much I rely on them for support.
Writing is tough and none of my friends or family members know what I’m talking about when I rant about deals, agents, or rejections. Heck, some people still don’t really get what I mean when I say I have two published books. That’s when I turn to online friends. I spend a lot of time following blogs for tips, news, and just general awesomeness from writer’s lives and since I can’t yet encourage you to go check out my blog (https://mkgaud.wordpress.com/ check back often. I’ll get there soon. I promise!) I thought I would share some blogs that are up and running and worth checking out.
Nicole Tone at https://nicoleatone.com/
This Literary Life. Nicole is an editor, book reviewer, writer, and novelist living in Buffalo, NY. She blogs weekly about her life as a writer, tips, and is a wonderful freelance editor. I suggest following Nicole’s posts if you’re interested in catching a glimpse into the life of a busy writer.
Kim Graff at http://www.kimgraff.com/blog/
Kim is a blessing to all writers. She posts weekly on all topics writing and querying. Following Kim is an absolute must in my opinion because her query critiques and Pitch Wars advice are things you cannot miss if you are looking to get published. I also high recommend Kim’s editing services.
Kimberly VanderHorst at http://kimberlyvanderhorst.blogspot.ca/
Kimberly is a writer and editor who talks about all kinds of things in her blog from everyday life to Pitch Slam to Critique partners. Plus, she’s super amazing because half of her editing profits go to a charity like The Legacy Initiative that provides food, clothing, and employment services to the homeless.
Sara Dobie Bauer at https://saradobiebauer.com/
Sara is a writer, model, and mental health advocate who writes all kinds of steamy stories. She also just so happens to be the author of one of my all-time favorite novels BITE SOMEBODY. When you follow Sara’s blog you get all kinds of interesting things like author interviews, book reviews, posts about living life, and a whole lot of Benedict Cumberbatch.
And of course you should be following Evernight Teen’s blog http://evernightteen.blogspot.com/ if you want all the latest scoop on what’s happening with me and the Guardian Kiss trilogy as well as all of Evernight Teen’s other swoon worthy YA books.
These 5 blogs should keep you informed and entertained while I get my blog up and running. Well, and of course after too. In the mean time you can always follow me on twitter, tumblr, and Instagram as @mkgaud. Hope to see you there!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, Megan! Those blogs sound great - I'm going to check them all out. Congrats on your new release!
Sophia Destino has a target on her back.
Someone is determined to make sure she doesn’t see tomorrow. When Leo takes off on a dangerous mission to track down her attacker, Sophia is left to deal with a life that’s been turned upside down. Then she discovers her importance to guardian legend. She thought she was strong. She thought she could trust Leo. Until she discovers that her biggest fear is Leo’s greatest desire. Leo wants to be human again, and Sophia is the key to him doing just that. But should she risk everything for Leo and their happily ever after, or has Leo been tricking her all along to get what he wants?
“Don’t be afraid.” Leo’s deep voice wrapped around me like velvet.
I bolted to the light switch and flicked it up. Was my mind playing tricks on me?
“Leo…” It was barely a whisper and held a hint of a question.
“My Sophia.” He stood up and held his arms out to me, just waiting.
Waiting was something I’d done a lot of for Leo. I kept my spot by the door, with hopes so high they could kill me. He looked the same—out-of-this-world hot, and fortunately not injured in any way my eyes could detect. He wore severely distressed light-washed jeans and a plain black V-neck. His flaxen hair curled wildly around his face and his lips were tight.
The look was so good on him I almost couldn’t take it.
The dark look on his face told me he was feeling exactly the same way about me and my dress.
Without knowing who made the first move, I ended up in his arms. Leo held me close to his chest as my feet no longer touched the ground. I clung to him with everything in me, not caring how hot his flesh felt against mine and forgetting to be angry with him for being gone so long.
“I missed you,” he told me as his hand cupped the back of my head while his other supported the entirety of my weight.
“I missed you more, I bet,” I told him, believing my words to be true. There were so many thoughts swirling in my head.
“Impossible.” He sat us down on the edge of the bed and cradled me in his lap since I refused to end our hug.
“Well, you could at least see me.” I had to point out the obvious. I’d had no way of knowing if he was even alive.
Leo gently nudged my head up with his shoulder and tilted my chin with his burning fingers until it was level with his. “I’m sorry I left you.”
Before I answered, his lips caught mine in a crushing kiss. My hands buried themselves in his hair and held his face as close to mine as possible. My heart was beating so loudly I was sure he could hear it and I couldn’t breathe but it didn’t seem to matter.
Leo’s mouth only left mine to kiss my shoulder, then trailed down to my arm. Where his lips met my skin, visible puffs of steam appeared.
“Oh, God.” He groaned and tried to pull away from me.
“No,” I told him as I tried to keep him close.
“I’m hurting you.” He brushed the hair away from my eyes, just barely touching me.
“Stopping would hurt me.”
My words were all it took for his lips to be back on mine. Leo fell back on the bed and pulled me with him. First I was on top of him. Then all of a sudden Leo was on top. My hands pressed into his back with all the strength I had as I pulled him closer to me.
