Saturday's Special Site

In keeping with the new blog, I'm trying out a couple of weekly features. Sunday is going to be my book review day, and Saturday will be the day when I pick a site I like and pass the link along. Sometimes the site will be a blog, other times a writer's site, and occasionally, I'll just pick something fun. We'll see how it goes.

For the first Special Site, I'd like to invite you all to check out a daily blog-read for me...

Murder She Writes

I've been visiting the MSW gals for a couple years now - back when it was just the five of them: Allison Brennan, Karin Tabke, Natalie M. Roberts (aka Natalie R. Collins), Deborah LeBlanc and Jennifer Apodaca (aka Jennifer Lyon). Not too long ago, they added another five fabulous gals and made the blog twice as wonderful. The newest additions are: Toni McGee Causey, S.J. Day, Heather Graham, Roxanne St. Claire, and Debra Webb.

Now these ladies have a lot in common, but I think the thing that brought them together at MSW is that they all kill people - albeit only in writing. Aside from their murderous bent, they are all awesome writers and incredibly bright ladies to boot. Their posts every day provide a glimpse into their writing careers, or give their readers something to think about, or allow their fellow writers insight into what this writing life is all about.

I haven't missed a weekday morning with them since I found MSW - through Karin Tabke's blog way back when I was still learning about this whole writerly blogosphere. I'm ashamed to say I don't comment nearly as often as I should, because they're usually posting about something worth commenting on. I've found hope and inspiration within their posts, and I've learned something about my own writing along the way. Additionally, I've come to them to refill the well when I was feeling low.

So, if you haven't visited the blog, please wander over to soak up the knowledge, and the camaraderie that comes from being with such incredibly talented people.

Oh, and as an aside... Allison Brennan's latest book just hit the shelves, so if you're a fan of romantic suspense, run out and get yourself a copy of Sudden Death. I scooped mine up the other day. I'm only a few pages in, but it's already got me. If I'm not careful, I won't be getting to bed until I hit THE END.
