FIRST Day



Hey everyone! I have an announcement to make. I am now in charge of the new blog alliance that Chris Well began last month. It is called FIRST Day. FIRST meaning, Fiction in Rather Short Takes. I've only just made the blog but I'll be putting a lot of work into it. Of course I'll keep up my other blogs, have no fear! I can't stop talking about myself and the Bible. LOL

Here's the plan:

I would love for everyone I know to join the alliance. It is really easy. Just press my FIRST button up there. It'll send you to the alliance blog. Instructions are on the bookmark.

We will simultaneously post the first chapter of a prearranged book with the author's permission. This will be done on the first day of each month. If it happens to land on a holiday, you can post it before or after the FIRST day. If you sign up in the blogarithim box on the FIRST blog, you will be sent an email when the blog is updated.

Before the event, I will post the FIRST chapter and all the links needed in your post. You are welcome to do author interviews as well! I'll get you the author's e-mail information if you request it. When you post the chapter on the FIRST day, be sure to leave a comment on the FIRST blog to let everyone know. I'd love to get everyone visiting eachother's blogs and make a fun core group out of it!

Also, I welcome any author/book suggestions for the FIRST Day events!


I am still an active member of the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance (press button above for link). Bonnie and I will coordinate things where the posts will be timely separated.

So, what do ya say? I hope you say yes!

Great idea, and I love the new look. I'll be a frequent reader. Heck, I can't even do a meme!

Thanks Rulan, I'm still working on the colors. I'm also revising all my other blogs...almost finished with my FAIRIES blog. It is looking pretty cool now!

Fred~ Silly boy. DO THE MEME! LOL. Really, the alliance will be quite simple. Mostly a copy and paste thing for the chapter. And you can write more if you feel the desire to do so. No stress. Would LOVE to have you join it!

Cinder~ Thanks, I hope you join too!
