Book Bizzo #6 The publish it before my Internet connection dies edition

This is going to be a very short Bizzo because I’m still in Melbourne and hotel Internet plans in this country are prehistoric. Might have to duck into Maccas for free WiFi. Anyway…

Book Thingo guest blog

I’m a guest blogger over at Erotic Horizon, so please check out the post and say hi to EH. She gave me some great questions and I had heaps of fun answering them. I’ve just discovered her blog, but I’m enjoying it a lot.

ARRC Round-up

ARRC09 was a rousing success, and we’re doing a round-up of posts here at Book Thingo over the next few days. For a full list of ARRC posts, including the liveblogging, click here.

You can also read other bloggers’ experiences at The Good, The Bad and The Unread (Marg from Reading Adventures is guest blogging), and Rebels of Romance (by Liz Maverick—from an author’s point of view).

You can view photos here, and if you were at ARRC, I’d love it if you’d add your photos to the group. (If the Flickr group is empty, it’s because I haven’t had a chance to load up my photos yet.)

Sherrilyn Kenyon signing LIVEBLOG

Just a reminder that Sherrilyn Kenyon will be at Galaxy Bookshop this afternoon for a book signing. (I’m not sure if Dianna Love will be with her, but the two of them are great fun together!)
