Fun Stuff on the Interwebs

Since I have a book due tomorrow (EEEEPPP!!!) I thought I'd share a few quick links of some fun/good to know stuff going on that you might want to know. :-)
  • Entangled currently has an open call for submissions for a new line of stories. Check out the deets HERE.
  • Month9 is open for submissions again! Their guidelines are HERE.
  • The Scene 13 blog is currently running a fun giveaway with a TON of books, swag, crits, and gift card prizes. All you have to do to enter is like their Facebook page HERE.
  • Spencer Hill Press is celebrating the upcoming release of their author Kimberly Ann Miller's book Triangles by giving away a CRUISE. Yes, you read that right. Check out the deets HERE.
  • Enslow Publishers (a NF and fiction for education publisher) now has a fiction YA imprint, Scarlet Voyage, that is taking submissions. They are interested in any subgenre of YA, but most specifically in fantasy/sci-fi, thriller/mystery, contemporary/teen issues, dystopia, and paranormal romance. In an interesting twist, they ONLY accept non-agented submissions. Check them out HERE.
  • This cool site will suggest authors/books to you based on authors you like. You type in a name and out come the suggestions. It's fun. And cool. And sort of addicting. And possibly bad for your pocket book. But awesome to find new authors to read!! Check it out HERE.
And just for your viewing pleasure (and because it amused me because now that I always seem to be on deadline (which really cuts into the tv time :D ) I tend to watch a lot of shows this way.....)

Do you marathon shows? I've done it with Downton Abbey, 30 Rock, Firefly, and a few others. And I've got Game of Thrones and Being Human on the marathon list for when this book is done :D

Wow, thanks for all the great links! I am definitely a marathoner when I discover a show I love. Most recently, hubz and I marathoned Bunheads. Adorable show.

I'll marathon a show if I get into it. Since getting Netflix it's been Sherlock, Doctor Who, Inspector Lewis, Once Upon a Time, and The West Wing. Currently I'm working through Avatar: The Last Airbender (I don't know if there should be a colon there) and my mom and I are watching Eureka. I've done a little bit of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (just out of curiosity) and I watched a couple seasons of Merlin but got bored with it. I tried to watch Torchwood but couldn't get into it. Not on Netflix, but I tried Firefly and just couldn't get into it. I have the episodes on DVD and that was a waste of Christmas money.

Good luck getting the novel finished!
