Sample post - block quotes!

Under Construction.
This was a sample post I was using to work on my block quote appearance - but I like the little construction worker guy, so I thought I would leave the post up so he could get some love!

Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read - Open to a random page -
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

(make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"Instead he was watching Zane's body. And when I turned in that direction, I knew why. Beneath the rent in the material of Zane's shirt, his skin was knitting back together, as if I were watching an autopsy in reverse."

Literary Road Trip!

I have signed up to represent Minnesota (mostly Southeastern Minnesota) in the The Literary Road Trip which is featured at Jenn's Bookshelves.  If you know of any authors that I should be sure to read and review or blog about please let me know! 

The Literary Road Trip is a project in which bloggers are volunteering to showcase local authors. This showcase can be anything you want to make of it – book reviews, author interviews, giveaways – as long as you’re working with an author local to you.
How it works:
1.Stake your claim! Post a comment (if you haven’t already) and let her know what State, territory, region, etc. you’d like to showcase on your blog.

2.Post content on your blog

3.Add a link to your posts to Mr. Linky at the bottom of her post page.

4.Each month, she'll add new links submitted to a Road Map post that navigates readers through who has posted and what.

My idea for my Minnesota author showcase is this: Each month feature a different author profile. Then each week spotlight books by that author. Let's see how this all plays out!
