Friday Featured Blog – Elana Johnson

Hi Everyone!
Thanks so much for all the great comments yesterday on my 100th post! You are all awesomeness personified – don’t believe me? Just go look above the followers widget ;o)

Please forgive any typos you see in the next couple weeks’ posts – my right eye has a swollen cornea (I think that’s what the Dr. said) so I’m reading/typing this in like 20 pt font. Pathetic I know…LOL

We have a wonderful featured blog today! Elana Johnson (how lucky are we that this one is around the blogisphere) over at Young Adult Author Elana Johnson navigating the Publishing World with a splash of Real Life blogs about all kinds of stuff! Lately, she’s blogging about – well… blogging. It’s good stuff too, one I liked is Where to spend Your blogging Time.

Elana has such a helpful blog. I’m always checking out what she has to say. Her posts are short, witty and to the point. I love that about her blog! Another great post is over on The blog of which she is a contributing author. It’s all about the voice – something I find fascinating. Go on and visit Don’t Use That Voice With Me Great info there.

Elana is so sweet – her comments are always genuine and sincere. If you’re not following her blog – what are you waiting for? She knows her stuff about queries too. I mean a lot about queries, this post isn’t long enough to list her knowledge on that subject, but trust – she shares it all ;o) You can purchase her ebook From The Query to the Call on her website! See, told ya she knew her stuff ;o)

Elana’s Profile Info:

I am a contributing author to the QueryTracker blog. I also teach, watch reality TV and drive too fast.

When I’m not doing that, I write young adult science fiction and fantasy.

I am represented by Michelle Andelman of Lynn C. Franklin Associates, Ltd.

What are you waiting for – go on over and join the fun! That’s my time – have a wonderful weekend! Any big plans? I’m finally going to see Alice in Wonderland this weekend!

    Great pick for today, Erica. Elana is lovely (and will probably snort when she reads that). ๐Ÿ˜‰ Very knowledgeable writer, that one.

    And you know what you need, right? An eye patch! No really – you can rest your eye, and look very piratical at the same time! LOL

    Heal up soon…
