The Random Edition:
JA Konrath guestblogging on the cumulative effect of self-promotion efforts. Here he is on yet another blog (*grin*) talking about what not to do when promoting your books. (And here you can find an excerpt of his latest book, Afraid, which I am far too chicken to read.)
And (because there has not been enough space devoted to chocolate on this blog recently): The chocolate chip scones I made for breakfast on Saturday. Just make sure to add more OJ than the recipe calls for to get the dough wet enough. Scrumptious.
