Friday Featured Blog – The Babbling Flow of a Fledgling Scribbler


Hi Everyone ;o) Happy Friday! Now see, that has a much better ring to it than Have a good Monday, which I’ve always thought was an oxymoron.

I hope you all had a great week! Mine was good, busy at the day job, but that’s a good thing ;o) Please forgive any mistakes in this post as I am in my glasses because my right eye is watering like crazy. I think it has a scratch in it.

We have a wonderful blog feature today. Straight from Saradise! Sara over at The Babbling Flow of a Fledgling Scribbler is one of the nicest bloggers I’ve “met.” She’s always there with a sweet comment and her blog posts reflect her coolness as well.

I’m so impressed by her book trailer for her story Shattered. Really, she should do them for a living. Just click on that little linky there and check it out!

She’s also holding an Awesome Contest! where you can win up to 5 different prizes! Um. yeah. Good odds there. So make sure to check that out! Sara also shared her insight on super agent Jenny Bent, owner and founder of The Bent Agency in a uber helpful post. She shares querying and finding an agent, representation etc. It’s a great post. You can find all it’s gloriousness Here.

I thought the next post was so cute. Her Nana gave her some Old Books (which I think is awesome – are you reading this Grandma? Oh yeah. No. You don’t have a computer…) It’s one that I found sincere and entertaining, like all her posts.

Sara’s profile info:

I’m a full-time writer in Northern Virginia. Currently, I’m editing my YA urban fantasy, SHATTERED. Oh–and there’s a fun new project simmering as well!

I write the stories that I want to read, and when I revise I always use purple ink! I like my chocolate ice cream doused in maple syrup (the real kind) and when I finally grow up I want to be a princess… The sword-wielding kind, of course!

She’s also part of another awesome blog The YA5. You can find it Here. What is the YA5 about? Well I’m glad you asked.

In their words…

YA that matters, 5 days a week

The YA-5 is a group of writers with a shared vision for change. Change in the way that information about YA books is shared on the web – with you, the people who read & love YA books. We don’t want to tell you which books to buy – we’d rather hear what you think.

Talk to us. Tell us what you think, what you know and how you feel about YA. Comment on our blogs, our vlogs, our ramblings. Tweet us, tag us, call us out when we’re full of it. We’re The YA-5 and we can take it.

But don’t look for us on the weekend, ’cause even superheroes need days off.

How fun does that blog sound too! Yeah, I know you want to – go on and follow that one too ;o)

You can find Sara on Twitter as saramcclung

I got another award! Man you guys are awesome peeps! Super sweet Jen over at Unedited gave me the Silver Lining award! Thank you so much Jen – make sure to check our her stupendous blog when you get a chance!

I’ll be in Chicago on Saturday to do some shopping! Yay fun ;o) I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
