Hello A to Z challenge accepting people. My name is Susan Gourley and I'm thrilled to be part of the team here at A to Z. This is my first year as an administrator and my fourth year participating in the challenge. I served as a minion to Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh last year so I'm confident I'll handle the responsibilities involved in my position this year.
I write romance as Susan Kelley and have 12 books published by a small press, two of them bestsellers. I'm also published in high fantasy though that's a story for another day. I'm a member of the Pennwriters Board and am busy helping plan the annual conference. I also am a long time member of RWA and one of the administrators of the IWSG blog. My personal blog is Susan Says where I post every MWF except in April. Enough about me.
Please check out these fellow bloggers and drool with envy at their really cool Dragon Badges. We could use one or more recruits if you'd like one of those badges to enhance your blog sidebar.
Laura Clipson found at My Baffling Brain, a blog I've followed for a while now.
L.Diane Wolfe a veteran of the challenge and also an IWSG blog administrator.
Sabina Leybold whose blog, Victim to Charm is full of variety.
Shanatala at Shanayatales who shares the most interesting book reviews.
Ann Bennett who is a new friend to me and so graciously enlisted into the Dragons.
With an all female team, maybe we should have been called Amazon Warriors instead of Dragon Soldiers. But we would welcome any gentlemen into our midst should one step up. One thing I love about our team is our diversity. Writers, teachers, public speakers, photographers and all of us with a wide variety of interests.
And that brings me to today's piece of advice for the Challenge. It might be tempting to use the category tags to select blogs that are the same as your own. But one of the great ideas behind the challenge is to meet bloggers from all worlds of fun, entertainment and weirdness. Visit outside your category and you'll find some fun and interesting posts.
Have you met my soldiers yet? Care to help us out? Will you visit outside your category? See a glimpse of spring yet?
