Today Let’s Celebrate YOU! Pimp & Promote, baby.

Pimp Dawg says y'all need to party it up and get pimpin' or promotin'!

That's right! In honor of my wedding anniversary tomorrow, I'd like to throw it over to all of you on the blog today.

Have a super fabulous blog you want to promote? Put the link in the comments!

Want to share someone else's book release, post, or just plain awesomeness? You got it ~ put a link in the comments!

I hope you'll mix and mingle here today and find some great new blogs to check out.

Need a start? How about this?

Have you met my friend Amy Shojai? She has this terrific blog where she talks about Blood, Bitches, and Bling. Well, today she's got a fab post where you have a chance to name a character in her book. Not just any character ~ two kitty characters! Hop on over and check it out. Make sure you catch up with what's she been doing in her writing career, with animals, and her stage work as well. This is one super busy woman who really does do it all!

We writers are visual people, for the most part. We have to visualize a world, room, or character in our head and then transfer that image to the page. Over at PhotoBotos, they have amazing pictures that they feature and, I've got to tell you, many of my imagined worlds have been inspired by them. Like this photo of Valdivia, Chile. The way the trees are lit from the sun to the mists on the other side, I can see this as being a portal to another world. What do you see?

Okay, I admit it, I love games. Specifically, puzzles and games that make me think. So when Kristy K. James started her ‘What In The World Is This?' game, I was hooked. Every Wednesday she puts up a picture of something unusual and we're supposed to figure out what it is. The comments are as hilarious as what it really ends up being! See if you can figure out what this thing is.

Following in this theme… Debra Kristi has started a fun game with Thor. That's right, my sweet Thor is going on an adventure this summer with Debra and her daughter Monkey. Each week Thor is doing something and it's up to us readers to figure out what. Last week he battled a donut. This week? Well, let's just say I thought he was fixing the Millennium Falcon. What do you think he's doing?

I'm loving these fun summer games. Now it's your turn. Got something you want to promote? You know what to do. Pimp out someone else? Not a problem. We're all about love and sharing here at A Cup of Tea and Sorcery! Spread the love, share the word.

    I am LOVING Amber West’s Tell Me A Story series. It’s amazing. Each week she posts bits about the story and then the readers tell her in the comments what they want to see happen next (or she prompts us) and she uses something from the comments for next week’s edition. AND she does character interviews. It’s fantastic! It’s got its own page so you can get up to speed:
    http://wosushi.wordpress.com/tell-me-a-story-an-interactive-serial/
    I think we are up to like #13 so if you don’t have time to read from the start, just jump it. You’ll be addicted in NO time!!! It’s my weekly fix.
    I also thoroughly enjoyed Kathy Owen’s post on ways to enjoy murder mysteries (LOVE) http://kbowenmysteries.com/posts/4-ways-to-make-murder-entertaining/
    And was blown away by Lynnette Conroy’s post on the douchebags who text and drive. It was awesomesauce! http://rantravewrite.com/2012/06/10/why-youre-probably-an-ss/

    Lately I’m totally inspired by S.M. Hutchins’ new blog, Live Wonderstruck! It is light and uplifting, and makes me remember to appreciate the little things. Definitely worth a read! http://www.livewonderstruck.com/

    Great post! I’m off to check out the link above! πŸ™‚

    Oh – and Happy Anniversary!

    I’m excited about this opportunity to share the love of reading with underprivileged children in our local area and I think you will be, too! Starting June 22, give just $3 at your local Macy’s store and get a free book & $10 off your purchase of $50 or more! Macy’s gives every one of those $3 right back to Reading Is Fundamental to get books to kids in need in the SoCal area. πŸ™‚ Please help spread the word about this wonderful win-win-win.

    I just hit the 40,000 word count in my first draft of my first novel and I am having a ‘Yea me!’ moment. I am happy to share this moment with one of my favorite people on on the world wide web (Tameri) and her friends.
    And, so as not to sound totally self absorbed. I would want to tell you all about a blog I found this week called The View Outside. Vikki had this great post last week called “What I learnt from 9 hours of the Lord of the Rings.” Check it out – http://the-view-outside.com/2012/06/13/what-i-learnt-from-9-hours-of-the-lord-of-the-rings/

    Two things I’d like to promote:
    1. My friend and mentor, Prudy Taylor Board has started a wonderful new blog. Prudy’s published twenty-five books (and counting) and is a great writing teacher πŸ™‚ Her blog is at prudytaylorboard.blogspot.com.

    2. My children’s book is published! Yaay! You can find it at my website, http://www.BettyTales.com. It’s the TRUE story of my disabled cat and her adventures. Both inspirational and educational, it’s written for third grade level. All ages love it, but the third graders who reviewed it stood and cheered!

    Happiest anniversary! You two deserve so much (more) joy. Hope you’re spoiling each other rotten. πŸ˜‰

    I’d like to promote Kathy Owen, who kindly shared her blog stage with me today as part of her tea & cookies series: http://kbowenmysteries.com/posts/chai-and-fruity-oatmeal-yums-from-august-mclaughlin/

    Kathy doesn’t know this, but hers was one of the first blogs I ever admired. She’s such a smart and lovely writer and person, I was a tad bit intimidated at first. πŸ˜‰ Whether she’s blogging about Holmes, bacon or huingbirds, her posts are a treat! She’s also fast-drafting like a champ, so please cheer her on: @kbowenwriter. Thanks!!

    Have a great weekend celebrating, Tameri. I thought you’d like to know that L.H. Cosway, the author of Tegan’s Blood has released a free novella called Crimson, which is told from the vampire, Ethan’s point of view. You can download it free from Smashwords http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/170606
    It might keep you going until the next book comes out.

  17. Debra KristiDebra Kristi

    I hit the button too soon. Happy Anniversary my friend!!!!
