Stephen Tremp's Breakthrough Breakout Party and Other Literary World News

#DailyWings: "So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable." -Christopher Reeve

Happy Monday, everyone! I am officially done with summer school and ready to relax, travel and have some fun until August! In other great news, today is Stephen Tremp's Breakthrough Breakout FREE Kindle Download Party! Woohoo - bring out the chips and soft drinks and dance music! *parties like a rockstar* 

Be sure to check out his copy of Breakthrough: The Adventures of Chase Manhattan - you can download it for free! 

Without giving away too much (you know I hate spoilers!), here is a shortened summary from Amazon

Breakthrough, the first book in the Adventures of Chase Manhattan series, begins with a big bang and offers the audience exciting, unique, and diverse heroes and villains. The result is a fresh suspense thriller series integrating elements of greed, betrayal, passion, lust, unconditional love, coming of age, and hope. The action is swift. There are numerous red herrings, twists and turns, that will keep the reader turning the pages and wanting more.

Sounds like my kind of novel! Thanks Stephen for such an awesome giveaway! In other news, Deana Barnhart  recently got signed with a literary agent, and Ruth Madison has founded a new publishing company dedicated to novels about heroes with physical disabilities. If you've got a manuscript that fits this criteria, check out the guidelines here

Just wanted to spread some additional news about others in the writing community; I figured  so many bloggers have been supportive of my Roarin' Twenties Poetry Blogfest and Chapter Critique Giveaway event and have been following me for ages...the least I can do is help out with their own promotions! 

As a friendly reminder, if you haven't signed up for the blogfest and/or giveaway yet, you have 5 days left in which to do so! Again, here are the rules: Any time between June 22 (my birthday!) and June 24, post on your blog either an original poem or an existing poem that focuses on one or more of the following: birthdays, the 1920s era, or time. Here is the InLinkz list below: 


And to enter the Chapter Critique Giveaway, doing an or all of the following and let me know (P=Points):
  • Become a follower of my blog (5P)
  • Participate in The Roarin' Twenties Blogfest (5P)
  • Tweet about the blogfest and include the hashtag #theredangel and @xtheredangelx in your tweet (1P)
  • Like TRA on Facebook (2P)
The more points you rack up, the better chance you have of getting that critique of one chapter of a novel or a short story.

Remember, you do NOT have to be a poetry writer in order to participate. You can post either a poem you wrote, or your favorite related poem by a famous poet or other.

Hi Wendy! First off, I love that you're going by your real name now, too. :) Lovely profile pic as well. It's so nice to meet "you". :)

Thank you for the comments you've left on my blog, and sorry I haven't been by lately. Super busy at the moment, trying to get ready for the baby. Thank you also for the invite to your blogfest, but I'm afraid, my schedule is so crazy at the moment, I'm struggling to post every week. So I don't want to make a promise I can't keep. :( But I hope that you and the other bloggers get to have fun.

Happy (early) birthday!! Eat lots of cake and sweet treats. My only present to you is a blog award. So come by when you have time to claim it. :)

Have a fab day!

Precy! Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comment - and for the blog award! Totally made my day. :) I'm so excited for you and your family! Do keep us updated on the baby news if possible!

Thank you for the birthday wishes. I can't wait to celebrate with my family - and LOTS of cake haha.

Hi Wendy, thanks so much for the promo! I'm still making my way around Blogdom and catching up on everything.

I signed up for the Blogfest. Fortunately I'm a novice historian so I'm familiar with the Roarin' 20s. Looking forward to the Blogfest!
