The Alley Weekend Round Up

I can't believe summer is here and here in a big way. Where I live in Texas, we don't have much of a spring. We slip into summer fast, sink into the heat and stay there until the end of September. I like to stay inside where it is cool and refreshing. But you know what I like even better? I like reading books and blogs...especially good blogs...and The Writer's Alley is one of them. Boy, do we have a great week lined up!

The Weekly Line-Up

Monday - Although she has just moved this past week, Pepper is sure to have something great for us!
Tuesday - It is Guest Post Tuesday! Stop by for a fabulous guest who will teach us something wonderful.
Wednesday - Want to know about success writing? Mary's topic is Proving You Have the Right Answer. Intriguing, isn't it?
Thursday - Krista brings us 5 Reasons to Self-Publish. You know you've thought about it! ;)
Friday - Casey is writing about your target audience with a post entitled What/Who Do You Write For.

I am spit and polishing the first two chapters requested by a house. Hope to push the send button tonight!

On my agenda this week: Revising a picture manuscript with my writing partner to address editorial comments and hopefully get a sale!

Yeah...that's about it.
