It’s Friday–in case you’ve lost track of the days of the week while hiding safely away in your home. Welcome back. Friday will now be the new publication day for our This Week in the Blogs posts.
How are you coping? Need a haircut? I do! Had enough of this surreal situation? Me, too! But, as someone on TV recently said, with each day that passes, we’re one day closer to getting back to normal–or our new normal whatever that may end up being.
Here’s your monthly submission reminders:
- For our blog carnival, Self-Publishing: Carnival of the Indies, please submit your best articles from your writing or self-publishing focused blog from the last 90 days here by May 15th for inclusion in our post that will be published right here on the last Friday of the month.
- Submit your e-book cover for inclusion in our e-Book Cover Design Awards competition for May here by the end of the month.
Enjoy the articles. Be safe and well, and see you back here next week.
