Calling all bloggers: Blog tour alert -- Get in on the fun!

Click on this image to expand it. Sorry I had to shrink it. It bumped into my Blog archive!
You are cordially invited to the next blog tour sponsored by BB Tour Services and Write More Publications. We will be touring The Twistedly True Tale Of Ruby Hood by Stephanie Greenhalgh. This book takes a new spin on an old fairy tale. Take a look:
In the small town of Woodsville, self-assured Ruby Hood becomes tangled in more than traditional teenage angst. With the Homecoming Dance looming, everything at Woodsville High appears normal, but things are not as they seem. Ruby meets a cute boy with a lopsided grin, Dylan Hunter. She flirts shamelessly with the football star, Kent Wolf, and finds herself in a barrage of harsh verbal altercations with his stunning yet wicked sister, Kayla Wolf. Thankfully, she finds solace in her friend, Lilly Fair. Through a series of odd and painful events, Ruby discovers her true calling and the responsibilities that come with her new power and position. Despite her heartache and sorrow, will Ruby find the inner strength not only to protect herself, but also to keep the Wood safe at all cost?
Does this sound like a book for you? Sign up by November 19th....
This tour will run from November 25th to December 9th. All days are open on a first come first serve basis. When responding to the email just let me know which date you would like.

It's NaNoWriMo. Sorry, I'm 10 days late.

NaNoWriMo Okay, maybe I'm oblivious to some of the goings on in the writer-oriented social media. For the longest time, I thought NaNoWriMo was a Japanese anime character. I envisioned a little purple, oblong creature with googly eyes that looked like a crawling pill for chronic heartburn. I could almost hear it's squeaky chipmunk voice. Alright, I'll settle down. Let's talk about the now ongoing National Novel Writing Month.

I Googled NaNoWriMo and found

The website immediately greeted me with "Are you ready to write a novel?"
The site offers you a chance to:
  •  Write a novel in a month 
  • Track your progress online
  • Get pep talks and support
  • Meet fellow writers online and in person
 In addition to the above, NaNoWriMo offers a graphic design marathon called "30 Covers, 30 Days".
You can also get deals or win prizes from sponsors such as Create Space and Watt Pad.

You are not alone! NaNoWriMo offers access to pep talks any time:
Here are the 2013 Pep Talkers:
Toward the bottom of this page, the Pep Talk Archive has links to the Young Writers Program, which has its own selection of YA Pep Talkers each year.

National Novel Writing Month was established in 1999. It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that believes stories matter. This year, we anticipate half a million writers joining our noveling adventure.
During NaNoWriMo 2012,
Over 250 NaNoWriMo novels have been traditionally published. They include Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants, Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus, Hugh Howey’s Wool, Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, Jason Hough’s The Darwin Elevator, and Marissa Meyer’s Cinder. See a full list of our published authors.

For those of you in the know about NaNoWriMo, I wish you success with your 30-day novel!
If not, maybe you're a hot shot and can bang a novel out in 20 days!
