Fill-Me-In Friday: Best Links of the Week

I may or may not have done this dance when I turned in my book. :)

Hey there. Hope everyone has had a fantastic week. I turned in my latest book to my editor yesterday so I'm in celebration mode. : ) Now I get a few days to clear my head before I get to work on the E-serial, NOT UNTIL YOU, on Monday. 

Here are the best links I've come across in the last two weeks. Since I've been in serious writing/editing mode, my surfing time has been scarce so this is a little shorter than normal, but I still wanted to pass them along.

 Okay, so I know I said earlier in the week that I wasn't blogging for the rest of the week. But I've got a pocket of time tonight and have too many good links not to share.

But first, if anyone is in the DFW area, I'll be signing books tonight from 6:30-9pm in Irving along with a bunch of other authors. Proceeds go to charity so hope y'all will come by. (Deets here.)

Alright, on to the links...

And April will be here in a few days. Thanks the heavens because March has been beyond nightmarish for me. But anyway, April is the month of the A to Z Challenge. I think I'm going to give this a shot because it will shake up my blog a bit and force me out of my normal schedule and comfort zone. Anyone else doing it?

But first a quick announcement. I've joined forces with a few other author moms to start a new group blog called Peanut Butter on the Keyboard. We'll be blogging about parenthood and balancing the writing life with family life. Hope you'll stop by and say hi for our inaugural post!
