Car Crashes and Sub-Genres

Fun stuff to do while I'm gone:

Readers here know I've never been fond of labels, especially for my own writing. I write the story, then try to figure out where it fits in the sub-genres of commercial fiction. I ran across this "system" during a recent jaunt through the blogosphere, and just had to share. First, check out any vehicle accidents in your book. Don't have any? Take a minute to sketch one out, and then check this post.

Enter a contest for What's in a Name? at the APA blog.

Request When Danger Calls from your local library system. If they don't have it, ask them to order it. Publisher: Five Star. ISBN: 978-1-59414-723-4

Take advantage of my September Special.

I want to thank two of my faithful readers, Carole Kilgore and Maryann Miller for bestowing upon me the Honest Scrap and Kreativ Blogger awards. I'm flattered, because I try very hard to make sure this isn't merely a place where authors promote themselves or their books. Of course, being the blogmeister here, I do get to bend the rules when I have my own personal news to share, but overall, I try to keep Terry's Place a site where you'll find something different--and, I hope, of interest. And if one day's post doesn't excite you, maybe the next day's will. I know there are strings attached to accepting these awards, but until I have better Internet access, I'm not going to be able to comply with all the links, etc.

Hey, enjoy the reduced internet access before it tries to take over your life again. Hope the trip's going well.

At 50 cents a minute, I decided there wasn't anything so critical it couldn't wait until I got home! And cell coverage was even more pricey, assuming there was any. It's nice to disconnect for a while.
