Jennifer Nielsen’s Cover Reveal Trivia

It’s HERE! I have Trivia Question number 7. Post your answer in the comments. From there if your answer is correct, I will send your name to THE Jennifer Nielsen for your entry point to the contest.

TRIVIA QUESTION NUMBER 7: What made the WW2 German Blitzkrieg different from any other invasions in history?

HOW TO PLAY

Start at Jennifer Nielsen’s blog There you see the cover with 15 trivia squares. There are (Surprise!) 15 blogs with links to ALL the questions.

  1. Follow that link to find the trivia question.
  2. Answer the question in their comments (Question 7 is answered here on my blog).
  3. The first correct answer will unlock that square of the cover, BUT
  4. Even if the square is unlocked, please visit the blog to get an entry point. The contest is open until every square is unlocked and the full cover is revealed. This means if you visit every blog before the cover is revealed, you can get up to 15 entries!

WHAT WILL I WIN?

THREE signed books from Jennifer Nielsen, INCLUDING the choice of THE CAPTIVE KINGDOM – or – the first ARC of this new historical when she receives it!

This is going to be so much fun! Let’s jump in and get started! Good luck to everyone

So, I’m Doing a Newsletter

Sharing news and updates with my readers is an important part of what I do. Now that I have several picture books out and I am working on more projects ( I have two novels in progress), I think it’s time to add a newsletter.

I have some basics included so far. I decided to share links to my latest blog posts and I have a suggested reading section. In my quest to do a newsletter, I have one goal: I want it to be useful to the reader. So, I need your help. What do you find beneficial in a newsletter?

I’ve been tossing around some ideas, such as resources for readers, writers, teachers and parents as well as a few other ideas.

As a fellow reader, writer, teacher or parent, what would you like to see? Let me know in the comments.

Bloggger to WordPress

This started innocently enough. I followed a link to someone’s blog which was a WordPress blog. I had a WP blog years ago, but never fully converted over to WP. I was hesitant because I was used to blogger. Now that I’m more familiar with WP, I like the “clean” look that most WP blogs have.

As I visited my friend’s blog I decided to revisit my old WP blog. I started to toy around with it and I have to admit that I like this much better. It will be a pain to “start over” again, but I believe it makes sense. I’ve grown as an author and it is important to keep growing. You can’t grow if you never try new things. So, here I go. I’m starting a new blogging adventure.
