Dedicated to Beth Revis!

In my early days of blogging, the blogosphere felt like the bar Cheers.  You could name a person, and I could tell you the name of their blog, the genre and subject of their WIP, and how many kids they had.  I knew if they were agented or not and what nickname they used when referring to their hubby.  I basically read their blog every time they updated and commented on every post.  I miss those days.

Of course, I have met many new and wonderful writers in the last two years, but there is something very special about those first bloggers buddies.  A special bond that forms from following each other's journeys so closely. (Now I'm like "What???  I follow a blog called Out for Blood?)

So, it is with that in mind, that I send out a HUGE congrats to one of my first blogger friends- Beth Revis.  Congrats on the launch of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE.   I know how much love and sweat she poured into this book and I am so excited to be holding a copy in my hands!

Beth, we love you!

Cheers!

How exciting! I too remember the early days of blogging...mine was spent over on MySpace but there was such a sense of community. Now the blogging community is so HUGE, the best you can do is form a little clique and find some familiarity within that. Congrats to your friend!

Great post! I still remember her post when she signed her agent contract and showed off the new computer her hubby bought her. I'm so uber-excited for her!

Here's to Beth: Hip-hip-hooray! Hip-hip-hooray! Hip-hip-hooray!
