Link Feast

Posted by on October 17, 2014

Happy Friday y’all! I hope you’re week’s been good. I am still recuperating from a very full load of activities including a Mario birthday party for my son. And it went well, considering we decided to move from the park to our home the day before. Whew, what a week!

And lots more going on out here in cyberspace.

Art Stuff

This month is #inktober where artists sketch something new in ink, each day. Fun, right? I heard about it from Rebecca P. Minor, who is quite the artist. So I’ve decided to jump in and participate. I’ve been meaning to draw or paint at least once a week to help me relax and refuel. But, I’ve not been very faithful with that, so here’s hoping this will spur me on. You can see my sketches here, and as you can see, I’m a little bit behind.

Bookish stuff

Nadine Brandes wraps up her book launch with a post that includes all her special content regarding the characters, places, and inventions in her debut novel, A Time to Die. And you still have 12 days to enter to win a signed paperback and a $10 Amazon gift card!

John W. Otte celebrates the release of Failstate: Nemesis by giving away signed copies of the entire series and he has not just one giveaway going, but two! So stop by his blog to learn more.

Monday, Gillian Bronte Adams shared with us about Stories that Shape and Characters that Change us. She is also celebrating the release of her debut novel, Orphan’s Song with an awesome, creative giveaway.

Angie Brashear interviews Morgan L. Busse and they are giving away a copy of Daughter of Light or Son of Truth, your choice! Paperback or ebook. 

Music stuff

Pirates and Merfolk, what better combination? Lindsey Stirling.

Life stuff

Everybody Wants It, But Nobody Seems to Get Any…. TIME! Michael Hyatt talks about time management. Something I am trying to grasp right now. You know, living life balanced between reality and dreams here. Such a good and timely post. I’m sure I’m not the only one.

I love it when reality and fantasy collide and we walk away better for it. Brent Week discusses how fantasy is An Indispensable Way to Understand Ourselves.  “Like Peter Pan, too many of us enter the “real world” of adulthood and forget how to fly.”


Hope y’all have a great weekend!

      Hi Nadine, thanks for stopping by! Glad you liked the links. There were a lot of giveaways, and quite a few I missed. Oops. I think I need to reread Hyatt’s post over and over. It doesn’t quite sink in or I just get bogged down in life and forget. ha!
