Monday Morning Blogosphere Announcements

Melissa Sugar's Monday Morning Announcements:

Congratulations to Cassie Mae- She is an Agented (yep its a word) She is an agented author!

There is nothing quite as exciting as learning that a fellow blogger/writer friend has excelled.  I am sure most of you have already heard the news, but just in case you missed it, I wanted to help spread the good news and cheer. Cassie Mae is now an agented author. If you don't know the story, I highly recommend that you read it. Cassie Mae wrote her manuscript in only three weeks. Now that is an amazing feat, in and of itself. Now, add to it that she whipped it into a revised story worthy of winning a competition and it is 
But then it gets even better. She put on her "I am not a wimp-I am a brave and talented writer" hat and voila, her query letter was answered with request that soon turned into what he all hope for , what we are all working so hard to achieve- an agent . Go Cassie Mae! Congratulations. You deserve it! If you have not read the story of how her novel, Nerd (Short for How To Date A Nerd) & the Harry Potter trivia question that prompted her to write it; you really should. Everything about this neat girl is quirky and unique so why would her story that landed the agent be any different? You gotta love it.

Cassie Mae, you need to be treated to some Mommy Juice.  No, it is not the kind of juice for moms to share with kiddos. It is just for us grownups.

Join Jeremy Bates for his "Dog Days of Summer" Blogfest August 10-12th

The rules are simple
 Write a brief post on one or all three topics below:

1) Describe your favorite summer activity thus far.
2) What activities do you plan before summer is over?
3) If you could have the ultimate vacation ever, where and what would it be?

And you gotta love this next part:

Then all you have to do is grab your laptop some beer (or wine), don't forget the wine, Jeremy, some steaks and head to your backyard grill or pool or hammock or whatever or wherever you like to chill.

So, how about the rest of you? Do you have any exciting news to share? Do you know of any cool blogfest coming up that we would love to join? And last, but not least, have you sampled any mommy juice? I just love that concept and the mommy who came up with it. I don't even care what it taste like; I have to have a bottle.

One more thing- My blog is in the process of a blog makeover, so none of my pages have been changed. Until then, the labels at the top of my page (links) will not take you anywhere. I apologize, but please be patient as it should all be completed in the next two or three days.


  1. Congratulations again to Cassie! :)

  2. Congrats to Cassie Mae! That is exciting news. :) Thanks for the info and links, Melissa. Have a great week!

  3. Aww, thanks for the shout out, friend! If it helps, I wrote a very drafty and crappy version in three weeks, lol. The rewriting and editing took much longer ;)

    I wanted to drop by your blog to thank you for leaving a comment on all the participating blogs for my book launch! I'm sure the hosts appreciate it! Hope you managed to decipher the code--I've fixed the broken links (which were my fault) and any non-posting blogs I've provided the secret letters as a bonus on my post.

    Good luck, and I hope you enjoy ORACLE when you read it!
