Today, Wednesday May 11, 2016, you are formally invited to the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” Blogging Event!

Come on, I know you want to bust a move and drop a link to your awesome blog in the comment box below!

What do you need to know?

  1. It’s an opportunity to mix, mingle and share a link to your blog or a specific post in the Comment box;
  2. Introduce yourself, tell us a little about your blog and tell us what is absolutely awesome about what your share;
  3. Visit at least three links from other bloggers, say hello and/or leave a comment directly on their blog;
  4. Feel free to INVITE your friends, REBLOG, TWEET and spread the word across your social media networks.

Don’t forget, it will be an all day event so feel free to drop more than one link but keep it to one link per comment box to make it easier for other bloggers.

I only have one request since I’d like to build an email distribution list by summer’s end:

If you don’t already follow my blog, please do. And if you do already follow my blog, please “Like” my Facebook Page – I’ll be working on it this summer. I’m also on Twitter but for now, I mostly do RTs.

Have fun! Taking various time zones into account, I’ll be dropping in every now and then to say “hey”!!!

M   xoxo

  1. Hi everyone 🙂

    My blog is THE OLD SHELTER and is an author’s blog. I write speculative fictions, most of which set in the 1920s. On my blog, I share news about my stories, I share my author’s journey (I have so much to learn yet, and I hope sharing will help other authors to avoid my mistakes), and I post articles about 1920s social life.
    I love social history, learning about how people lived and felt and thought in the past. I think the 1920s in particular share a lot in common with our times and learning about it might as well teach us something about ourseves.

    I’d like to share a link to one of my most successful series, The New Woman’s New Look. Everybody knows that the flapper is the icon of the 1920s, but maybe not many realised that the way she looked like reveals a lot about the time she lived in.

  3. Hey Marquessa! Thanks for hosting again. Every time you host a party, I think harder about doing my own 😉 At any rate, my name is Kathy and I write about everyday happenings in my life in order to inspire readers to think a little differently. Sometimes I take pictures and post them, and other times I invite bloggers to contribute to my “Other People’s Quotes” category. Here is some writing advice I gave not too long ago: https://kwoted.wordpress.com/2016/03/25/four-suggestions-for-publishing-beyond-your-blog/

  4. Hi Everyone!

    My blog is named after me, A.C. Melody. As an author, it covers a wide range of all things bookish, from my own works, a sprinkle of poetry, to hosting blog tours for other authors. I just recently started posting weekly resource articles about my new experience in self-publishing and that seems to be a reader favorite, so I will share the most recent post here before I go check out some of the blogs listed above. Also, Marquessa, thank you – This party was a great idea, and I now have that song stuck in my head. LOL 🙂

  5. Hi. My blog — what sandra thinks — started out as a place for me to say things I’d never say offline… and to post some fiction and get readers’ reactions to it. I am anonymous as far as my full name and my face and other such details. But I do write true stories about my life and family (with fake names). My name really is Sandra… it’s just all the other names that have been changed. To protect me from any of them finding and reading what I write!

    In addition to the aforementioned fiction, I also post poetry, stories from my real life, and occasionally, humor. I began writing poetry last November and it has kind of taken over. Never thought I’d write poetry, but it has been extremely well-received… and I enjoy writing it. My life can be especially funny and interesting at times, so I share. I also have a “weekly perk” post that must be something positive. And a weekly fiction post.

    Here’s a recent fiction post — I post fiction every “Fiction Friday” (and sometimes other random days) —

    Sorry for being so long-winded.

  6. Hey, Not too sure if this is still going on but thank you to Marquessa for hosting. I am writer who writes fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. Focused a lot on NaPoWriMo in April and am now doing #Maydays prompts with a mix of writing styles. Trying to finish up the first draft of my novel with 1 or 2 chapters to go, just to wrap up the book and hook the reader into book 2.

  8. Thanks for throwing another blogger bash, Marquessa – looks like everyone is really enjoying themselves! Is anyone drinking besides me? 🍸🍹🍸🍹

    Felicia here – writing as Felicia Denise – and I’m a big supporter of authors…any and all genres…almost! LOL! Love to help get the word out for new and indie authors…and new indie authors! 😀 Got a new (or old) work you want to feature? Just let me know!

    I’m also working on my debut novel – “In the Best Interest of the Child” – under the romance genre, but with heavy psychological and social overtones.

    ****
    Ten year old Olivia Chandler has a school she loves, good friends, a nice home, a talented mom, and a successful father she adores. Tragedy rips all of this away from her, and plunges Olivia into the foster care system, where for eight years she is neglected, humiliated, abused, and nearly raped.

    Fate smiles on Olivia shortly before she ages out of the system, allowing her the means to attend college and law school.

    Years later, Olivia is a successful child advocate attorney, giving a voice to children who are so easily ignored by those claiming to act in their best interest. She has little time for personal relationships, and her lifelong fear of abandonment reminds her never to get too close to anyone.

    The successful attorney stumbles though when she’s assigned a case by the court that too closely mirrors her own haunted childhood. Olivia never gives her minor clients less than her all, and the only way she can help her eleven year old client is to face down and acknowledge her demons. This same case also brings a man into her life who sees her for who she truly is, and will not allow Olivia to push him away.

    *Blurb – unedited*

    This is a quick flashback. (Remember, she’s 10 at this point in the story.)

    ***************************

    Why are my eyes so heavy? Why can’t I open my eyes? My legs are heavy and  I can’t move. Why is my throat so sore? What happened? Daddy? Mom? I need some help, please help me! Where are they, and what is that smell? If only I could open my eyes. Livvie took a deep breath and tried to move her legs. They didn’t move. She felt as though she was approaching hysteria when she heard someone call her name.

    “Olivia? Olivia? Sweetie, can you hear me? Open your eyes if you can hear me please, sweetheart.”

    Olivia? No one called her Olivia. Her name was Livvie, and she obviously didn’t know this person. And if she could open her eyes, wouldn’t she? DUH!

    “Olivia? We can tell by your heart rate and blood pressure that you are regaining consciousness. Try to open your eyes, sweetie.” 

    Heart rate? Regaining consciousness? What is he talking about? Daddy! Mom! I need you! Where are-

    Livvie’s thoughts were suddenly a jumbled mess. She remembered sitting in the restaurant. Her parents were laughing because she had whipped creme on her nose. Her mom mentioned the new bike trails were now complete at the arboretum. Her daddy proclaiming it “New Bike Day” as they all held hands walking out of the restaurant heading for the bicycle shop. She was laughing as her mom sang along to The Brothers Johnson’s “Get Tha Funk Out My Face” on the radio. Her daddy said, “I can see the bicycle shop up ahead.” Then her mom screamed. Why did her mom scream? Oh no! No, no, no! They were in a car accident! Daddy! And why couldn’t she move? A wave of fatigue came over Livvie, and she let go and gave into the darkness.

    *******

    Coming soon – I hope!

  9. Thank you so much for the opportunity. My name is Tony Vega and I’m a husband, father, dog owner, hard House music bedroom DJ and “hardcore blogger”. I blog about the good, the bad, the ugly, the ups, the downs and the batshit crazy things that I come across or goes on in my life. I also enjoy meeting like minded bloggers, who write their minds off with no fear, limits, restrictions or fear of repercussions.
