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?

I am a HUGE Poe and Austen fan. Since you like literary YA, have you read The Book Thief? It is lyrical in many ways. Death is the narrator. Set in Nazi Germany.

Yay! Hi fellow Poe and Austen fan! :) What are your favorite Poe bits? I love his poem Alone and my favorite story is Hop-Frog.

Nope, I haven't read that. I'll definitely check it out though. The winter I was 9 I read all the books in the local library about the Holocaust and it's been a frequent research topic since then and accounts for many of the esoteric nonfiction books I've checked out of the library.

Thank you!

I hate to be cliche, but I like Fall of the House of Usher.

I cannot say enough about The Book Thief. I will give one warning, people either LOVE it or don't get it; thus, hate it. So on Good Reads it gets 5 stars or 1 star. Not much in between. I loved it because of the lyrical writing, the characters, the setting, the meaning underlying the bigger story (i.e. words are powerful...and love usurps hatred.), and of course Death being a narrator is very clever.
