Scooting back down south, we come to amazing YA author Linda Gerber, who currently lives in Ohio. Linda is one of my favourite writers, and with titles under her belt including DEATH BY BIKINI and DEATH BY LATTE, who could resist? (I'm pleased to report that DEATH BY DENIM is not far behind!) Her blog is filled with fun ideas and give-aways -- a very popular read.
Linda has lived all over the world (since I've known her, she's lived in Finland, Japan and the US...and I do believe she is plotting some new adventurous destination right now...) and is always open to new experiences. Here's a small taste of her guest-post:
Linda's Top 8 New Discoveries in 2008.
1. Blog parties. Love them! I hosted a couple to celebrate my last two book releases and have participated in many more. They're a great way to connect, share the love, meet new people and have fun. And you don't even have to get out of your pajamas to party!
2. Scrivener. I'm a Mac user, but I had never though of using this software until this year when I heard from other authors how much they love it. Perfect for organizing and laying out the story.
3. The Mentalist. My sister Trish introduced me to the series just this fall. I quickly caught up with season 1 online. Smart, funny, and Simon Baker = awesomeness.
Ah. Simon Baker. Well, I can tell you that if you check out Linda's blog HERE ,you'll not only get to read more, but you'll see the picture she's posted of Simon. Or, if you like, skip on over to her fantastic website HERE.
Thanks for taking part, Linda! I loved reading about your new discoveries.
