The wonderful Unleashing Readers blog let me write a guest post for them. It was put up today! Check it out at the link below and read all their great articles and reviews as well. It’s a site full of good and interesting information and book stuffs.
I wrote a guest blog post for Jessica at the wonderful Bookish Serendipity. I always start with these ideas I think are great for guest blogs. This time I wrote about my nerves when I meet or approach a bookseller or blogger (or other author, actually) for the first time. Of course, now that I wrote the post, I have fret a bit. Check it out and check out her wonderful blog here. (As it’s 100 degrees here in NC, I’m also including a bookish fountain to cool everyone down!)

Laurie McKay has taught biology in the community college system for seven years and lives in Durham, North Carolina, with her family and two dogs. When she’s not dodging students and prepping lab activities, she’s sitting at a local coffee shop and writing.
