If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Friday Updates

I decided not to do the top ten this week because I've had a lot to do getting ready for this coming semester which starts next Tuesday, so my comments will be coming in short, I'm sorry, I hope you all will forgive me, but like always I will do the best I can to get to everyone and read posts on my down time.


 This semester I am taking:
 Chaucer for a Literature class
19th century Literature
Creative non-fiction
History of Rock and Roll

 Don't those sound wonderful? My schedule will be fuller this time around, but I'm excited about them.
 On Monday I will be posting about a new author: N.R. Williams. She will have a guest post on my blog with a contest for her blog book tour for her new release. I will also post up my review of her book next week.

Quick question: would it benefit a few people if I had one single post dedicated to how to participate/ do blogfests? I have had a few people question it, and if enough people want to here my take on the doing, then I will post an entry on it. Also If anyone who knows how to participate I'd be more than willing for you to leave a description in the comments of the "how to participate in a blogfest", I've been having a rough time explaining it I think. 


 Have a great Friday!

History of rock and roll sounds awesome!
Participating in blogfests is easy. Add url and name to linky sign up. Post link to fest / blogfest button / and-or linky code in your own blog post or side bar. Day of fest, post and visit others who post!

Oooh...Chaucer. Wartime flashbacks to that medieval literature class I took last year. However, that does seem awesome, especially the History of Rock and Roll! Love that you like your class load. Can't say I can complain about mine either, so yay for fun semesters!

And the blogfest....yes that would be very appreciated. I keep seeing posts about them but I haven't the slightest idea how they work. ^^

In addition to Alex: URL is found at home page of blog.
I once knew not what a fest was and wished I had someone to explain it :) Good luck with the classes and Hail, Hail Rock-n-Roll. :D

You're going to be one busy lady.

Thanks for the shout out. I hope you love my book but I do want an honest review. That's how we grow. I hope you will also review on Amazon and Good Reads if you're a member.

Blogfest...if anything, people need to be told NOT to drop the ball and remember that they signed up to do that. I have a word.doc just for that.
