The Brilliant Ones

Hey guys! There is always so much going on in the blogging world, but I wanted to share some great things happening with The Brilliant Ones (the name I coined for my crit buds). These girls are the coolest chicks on the web so head over to their blogs and check out what they're up to!

I can't even begin to express how much they mean to me. I can't deny I think I'm the luckiest girl on the planet to be a part of their lives. I know for a fact I wouldn't be still writing today if it wasn't for them.

And on a personal note, Angelina C. Hansen interviewed me here: Partner on the Path, Christina Farley. Please click and say hi!

Casey McCormick runs the famous blog, Literary Rambles, where her Agent Spotlight helps make the agent search less daunting.

Beth Revis has all the ins and outs listed on where to get autographed books from fantastic Indie Bookstores here.

Andrea Mack is a guru when it comes to middle grade fiction. She's got fantastic tips and if you're looking for a starting point on books to read, she's the one to check out.

Debbie Ridpath Ohi is not only a fantastic writer, but she creates cartoons that brighten up my day like Will Write for Chocolate (Hello? Could there ever be a better name?) You can even order cool writer gear from her site here.

Over at Author 2 Author, Kate Fall chats about Internet Time.

And Carmella Van Vleet shares great insights with the MiGs about her latest book here.

Oh and one more for you! I found the most awesomeness recipe, Chocolate Crumb Bars. Bake them and everyone will think you were sent from heaven. Try it!

Christy, this is so funny because earlier this week I was thinking what great critique buddies I have, (as I was looking at my bulletin board where there's a postcard with a picture of The Ancient Palaces of Seoul), and how lucky I am! You're so sweet to mention my blog (and I love getting new recipes, too).

Ugh I'm trying to diet! But at least looking won't make me fatter, will it?

You've got a great group of writing partners Christina!

Awww you're so sweet, Christy. I'm totally honored to be one of your CPs. I don't think I'm brilliant, but I think YOU are. <3 YAY for awesome CPs!

Critique partners are the best! Looks like you've got some great ones there. And those chocolate bars look AWESOME! It was great to meet you at the conference yesterday. I hope you got some good nuggets to help with your writing!
