All in one day, I inquired and was accepted to not one but two sites for writing!! I am beyond psyched (ok, with a little trepidation, anxiety for my schedule and pee my pants excited to start reading!!) to be a part of Fresh Fiction AND Technorati.
Fresh Fiction is a website that specializes in genre fiction. They have a whole staff of reviewers and editors and regularly (read: weekly!) showcase authors. I will be a reviewer! :) I will now have access to a whole list of books on a WEEKLY basis that have not yet been published which I will then be reviewing. I will be posting a snippet with a link here on LaLa so you know when I've reviewed a book, like I do when I write for Today's Mama, ok?
Technorati started as a place where the best blog posts were collected. Nowadays, they are also producing their own content. I will be but one of many many writers. Happily, they recently added a whole section for women! yay! Again, I'll publish first on Technorati and second on LaLa.
Now, this isn't about me writing other places instead of LaLa Land! I can write here whenever I want to! :) If I find that something I am writing seems to be a good fit for Technorati, I will just publish there first and then here but I am under no contracts or obligations to Technorati. That being said, even though I am not getting paid, I still had to apply to write and Technorati is a well-known name in blogging circles, which only means good things for me! :)
Fresh Fiction is strictly about books but I only put my reviews on Fresh Fiction if I get the book from them! So if I buy, download or borrow a book, I can certainly publish is on here and on GoodReads.
It just means two more places to put my mug and blather on! ;)
Hope to see you there! Please book mark those sites and I'll let you know when I publish on either of those sites.
