Yay! It’s the start of M&M Week


Back in May, I thought it might be fun to host some kind of networking tea and crumpets/soda and chips event here on An Englishman in New Jersey, where people could meet other folks with the same kind of writing interests. 

I called it Mix and Mingle week.

It was a lot of fun, so I thought I'd do another one.

Here’s how it works:
I’m very lucky to have lots of talented, wisdomous, writerly friends. Many of these good people share common interests, but don’t know each other...yet. Not all of them are on Live Journal. Some have accounts (or in the case of LJ users, additional accounts) on Twitter, Facebook, Blogspot etc.

If you’re interested in making some new writer friends, share a few words about yourself and your writing, along with a link to your website, Wordspace, Blogspot, Facebook, Twitter accounts etc. where folks can find out more about you and your work, then add/follow/friend you on the relevant platforms if they so desire.

If you don’t have an LJ account, you can still take part via an anonymous comment, but don’t forget to include your name. 

Of course, it’s up to you, but this is ‘Mix and Mingle’ not ‘Find a Fan’ week, so I recommend sticking to general info: how long you’ve been writing; what you usually blog about; preferred genre; favorite authors etc. 

As for me, I’m looking forward to finding out more about my friends. 

Have fun. Now, where did I put those teabags?

Hi everyone!

My first two YA fantasy novels are ARCH ENEMIES and THE AXES OF EVIL, available in all formats (paperback, ebook, kindle, alien head-beaming technology...)

I have a short story called "X Spots the Mark" in RUM AND RUNESTONES, a pirates-and-magic anthology and will also be in the sequel due next year.

I'm currently editing a short story collection called A BARD'S EYE VIEW due early next year. It features stories taking place in the world of my fantasy novels.

And I'm writing my third novel, about a vampire who runs for president.

Meanwhile, I maintain an active blog interviewing writers, editors, and agents. http://michaelaventrella.wordpress.com ... I also blog about my experiences with learning how to write better novels and what I've learned about the business.

My web page is http://michaelaventrella.com and my Facebook "fan" page is http://www.facebook.com/pages/Michael-A-Ventrella/456487130415?ref=nf

I'm always interested in trading interviews -- I'll interview you for my blog in exchange for an interview back!
