Three things: I would love to get some data about my visitors to this site. With that objective in mind, I've placed two polls on the right sidebar. Please take a moment to click your preference on each. It will be most helpful in determining what areas will be of most interest to the largest audience. Thanks!
Secondly, literary agent extraordinaire, Mary Kole, is hosting a contest for "Openings." How serendipitous is that, since we were talking about beginnings last week. You can get the details HERE!
Third, if you're a YA writer, here's another great contest to enter in February. HERE!
That's it for now, but don't forget to come back this afternoon for our Very Special Announcement!
