Blogfests galore!

Hosted by Writing with Hope & Reading, Writing and Lovin' It
How could I not enter this Valentine's Day blogfest??? I am, after all, a romance writer. So on V-day, my post will cover a kissing scene. If you'd like to participate, post about a scene from a book you've read, a scene from your own WIP, make up a new scene, or write about one of your own memorable kisses. Check out either of the links below the blogfest pic to add your name to the linky list. Let's have some fun and keep in the spirit of Valentine's Day!

I'm also participating on February 13 in the Origins Blogfest hosted by DL Hammons and co-hosted by the most awesome bloggers, Alex J Cavanaugh, Katie Mills at Creepy Query Girl, and Matthew MacNish at the QQQE. This blogfest is about getting to your roots, showing the blogosphere how you began your writing journey. As DL says: Tell us all where your writing dreams began.  It could be anything from how you started making up stories as a child, or writing for the school newspaper, or even what prompted you to start a blog.  How about stories about the first time somebody took an interest in your writing, or the teacher/mentor that helped nudge you along and mold your passion, or maybe the singular moment when you first started calling yourself a writer.  It all started somewhere and we want you to tell us your own, unique, beginnings.

Who's game to sign up for either of these? How do you feel about blogfests? Has anyone hosted their own? What is it about a particular blogfest that gets you to participate? If you don't ever participate, what about them dissuades you?


  1. Thanks for mentioning the Origins blogfest! We're very excited about the number of participants.

  2. Any time, Alex! And that number is growing every day, lol. I'll have to block off some time just to make some rounds that day.

    It definitely is, HR! I've seen so many, it was hard to choose. Eventually I settled on these because 1: I love romance, so the kissy one was a no-brainer, and 2: the hosts of Origins are amazing and I enjoy reading about writers' journeys and how they got started. These should be a lot of fun.

  3. Thanks for signing up and posting about the Valentine's day bloghop! I look forward to reading your scene :)

  4. Thank you for hosting, Hope. It's such a blogfest idea for Valentine's!

  5. I'll be creeping on everyone's kissing scenes! (=

  6. Ooh I like the dound of the origins blogfest. Thanks for the heads up.

  7. My origins post is all written and ready to go!
    And, if you're looking for another blogfest, i'm co-hosting the teenage heartthrob blogfest on 3/5, where you get to post pics of the celebs you crushed on as a teen.
    Fun stuff! The linky's at my blog if you're interested
