I've saved some interesting links for blog fests, blog hops and contests lately, but haven't been passing them on, so I thought I'd get on that and give out some info for my Monday post. I hope there's something in here for everyone!
Oooooh, before I start, though, I won a book from Dark Faerie Tales! I'm so excited! The book is The Secret of Spruce Knoll, by Heather McCorkle. It looks and sounds awesome (love the colors on the cover).
Paranormal Wastelands will be running a Halloween blog hop involving scary stories and book reviews. There will be prizes!
Novel Novice has a flash fiction contest going. The story must involve the Titanic, but can be any genre you please. Must be submitted by September 30.
Tell Great Stories is hosting MonsterFest 2011. You will be posting about a monster that interests you, a field guide of sorts. Sign up has begun, and will go through Halloween.
10 Flash Quarterly gives prompts for their quarterly publications, which you use to write flash fiction. The current one will open for submissions on October 1 with a theme of "It's the End of the World as we Know it."
While we're on the subject of links, I read about these two places in a blog post and had to pass them along. Have a problem getting things done and avoiding social media? PC users can go to Cold Turkey and download a free program that allows you to block yourself from various social media and addictive sites until you reboot. Anti-Social does the same, but I'm not sure what system it works on. It also isn't free ($15 to download, though, which isn't expensive). These sites were mentioned on Michael Hyatt's blog. The rest of the post I linked to is a good read, as well.
Until tomorrow, have a great Monday! No cases of the Mondays out there, okay?
May you find your Muse.
