Calling New Bloggers!

Since the blogging community is such a revolving door, I thought I'd put a call out for new bloggers. Why? Well, a long time ago, Pat gave me a shout-out from the Fantasy Hotlist, and it was a great boost for me. I haven't been paying as much attention to incoming linkage as I once did due to some inescapable busyness, and I thought this might make up for lost time.

So if you've been running your science fiction or fantasy related blog for at least a week or so, but for less than six months, please leave a comment with the following info:

Blog Name
Blog Web Address (clickable or otherwise)
The focus of your blog

I'll use the info to update my blogroll and to create a list that I will post at some point in the near future, when the comments here die down.

Also, we could use some fresh blood at our blogging community, Dragon Federation, which was created by Mulluane. When you're done leaving your comment, go join!

My Win a Book blog is largely dependent on Pat's and FBC for gives and author news. I'd sure love to hear from other SFF authors who are doing interviews and/or guest blogs, and from other bloggers who do online giveaways to help promote great books.

Focus: My journey through the world of writing (reviewing and recommending books), discussing my own writing journey, and passing on useful information found along the way. Primarily fantasy and science fiction focused.
