Am I Worthy?

Last week I mentioned something about having Guest Posts on my blog. Well apparently, the time was right as my two good friends Charley and Miriam immediately volunteered. Of course they won’t do it for free, but at least it’s only words they are asking me to write in return. So look for Charley and Miriam to appear here and in exchange I’ll appear on their blogs.

In addition, on Monday, Saffina Desforges had a facebook status looking for un-published author’s who wouldn’t mind showcasing their work on her blog. I volunteered. I must have been the first response because she e-mailed back saying if I got something to her by January 25th, I’d be the first. That’s a “Yikes!” and “Oh My Gooses” all at once. I wasn’t sure I had anything worthy, but thanks to Charley and Miriam , I have a good candidate, if my revising doesn’t then make it unworthy. *grin*

And since we are talking about guest blogging, I must mention Mark Williams. After I got my Kindle for Christmas, he kindly gave me two books, with my promise to do a review. He said if it was fairly lengthy and in depth he might consider posting it to his blog. I don’t know if I can write a review worthy of that but I’ll give it my best shot. The least I can do is post a condensed version to Amazon. I ought to be worthy enough to do that.

So am I worthy?

Yes, I am and you can be too. You just have to work hard, believe in yourself, and have a few cheerleaders to remind you that you got what it takes.

  1. *does a fairly useless cheerleader impersonation, because she's never seen one*

    Go Cayla, go Cayla! I'm sure you can do an in-depth review - I found it so much easier than I thought I would, lol xD

  2. You're Cheerleader impression is probably as good as mine. Cause you know I'm cheering for you and Miriam.

    I bet an in-depth review would be easier to write if I could read a book faster. Still I';; certainly be trying.

    Thanks for the cheers, Charley.

  3. Wow, *I* got a Kindle for Christmas and Mark didn't give ME books! lucky girl. And it's smart marketing on Mark's part for sure. He's an online publishing king!

  4. He he, welcome Sierra. :}

    I don't know why Mark gave me two free books. But I do know that he offered and I jumped at the chance for something new to read that I didn't have to weed out of the mountain of selection! I ddin't expect two books but that's what I got. (Oh, and I did buy both editions of Sugar & Spice, the American and the Brittish, because I'm utterly curious what American's couldn't understand in the original version.) :}

  5. Definitely worthy and love the blog!
