Writers' Wednesday: Something for Writers and Readers Alike Today

So I've been listening to some narrator demos that Audio Lark has sent me, in preparation for 3 upcoming audio book releases in summer 2012. I have to admit, even though I've been through this process before, it's really cool to hear your own words read out loud by someone else :)

Attention all authors: Savvy Authors is currently seeking bloggers. Details:

Once again I am scheduling blogs for the Savvy Authors Learning Center page. If you're a published author willing to write an original blog on a subject related to writing - craft, promotion, publishing, etc. - I'm scheduling for March 1st and forward (dates are first come first serve).

We ask for a blog of between 750 and 1500 words - negotiable. Our blogs include, as requested, book blurb and cover. The Learning Center Page gets hundreds of unique hits per day, the blogs are promoted in our newsletter, which is sent to over 4000 people weekly and will soon also be included in our weekly events mailing.

Monday Mentionables: The Oscars

Ah, the Oscars...always a night to make you rejoice in wonderful stories, in the underdog triumphing, and in really great fashion :0

I admit, I didn't see most of the movies nominated for Best Picture this year. Most years I'm better and see at least half, but this year...I don't know, I think time got away from me. The only one I saw (and loved) was The Help. But going to my favorite local indie theater and seeing The Artist is on my To-Do list this week!

Anyone else see and recommend any of the nominees or winners?
