9 This Week for Writers 11/25/11: Our Favorite Articles and Blog Posts

Happy post-Thanksgiving! Hope everyone had a wonderful day, including those of you non-American visitors who didn't overdose on turkey and pie yesterday.

We're still struggling a little bit with the Google+ thing, so this week's list is in a slightly different format. We'd love feedback. What do you like about the format? What would you like to see us change?

And we have a special treat! This week's WOW Wednesday Post was from Inara Scott, so we have a giveaway of the first book in her Delcroix Academy series. Enter by 12/1 for a chance to win. The form is at the bottom of this post.

The Candidates (Delcroix Academy, #1)Bad things usually happen when Danica Lewis sees someone threatening one of her friends. That's why she does everything possible to avoid getting close to anyone, belieiving this way she can supress her powers and keep them hidden. But when recruiters from the prestigious Delcroix Academy show up in her living room to offer her a full scholarship, her days of living under the radar may be over.

At Delcroix, everyone treats Dancia like she's special. Even the hottest guy on campus seems to be going out of his way to make Dancia feel welcome. And then there's her mysterious new friend Jack, who can't stay out of trouble. He suspects something dangerous is going on at the Academy and wants Dancia to help him figure out what. But Dancia isn't convinced. She hopes that maybe the recruiters know more about her "gift" than they're letting on. Maybe they can help her understand how to use it...But not even Dancia could have imagined what awaits her behind the gates of Delcroix Academy.

And the winner of last week's giveaway is: Ruth Setton. Congrats, Ruth! :D

  1. Woah....I was wondering where was this. Just four seconds ago I was going to e-mail you about if this was still going to be posted, or if you were taking a break for Thanksgiving.

    Perfect timing, I must say.

    Also: Would it be rude if I ask you to include my own round-up on the list? I just started to do them, and hopefully I'll continue weekly:

  2. Awesome links as uusal. thanks so much for sharing all the good ones.

  3. Awesome links! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving :)

  4. Scrolling through these this afternoon--and once again finding some neat links, thanks to you. Appreciate it :-)

  5. Thanks for the great wonderful news! I don't get it anywhere else. :)

  7. Thanks, everyone! Hope the links are helpful. Clara did a great job this week gathering everything.


  8. Thanks for all your thanks, everyone! We love sharing all the great posts we find with you.

    C0, thanks for asking us to include your round-up on our list. We add to our list when we find one that consistently rounds up posts that we haven't linked to already. We'll be happy to monitor your round-up, and hopefully in a few months we can add yours to our list. Thanks!


  9. As always, you amaze me on the number of great links you find. :D

    Thanks ladies!
