I'm Olga Godim and my blog is https://olgagodim.wordpress.com
I use my blog to muse about writing or to tell my readers the news in my writing life. I also blog in series. Yesterday, I started a new series of writing tips - blogged…"

Olga, just a gentle reminder that in the novelist group (as indicated at the top of the page) we don't post links to blog posts. We try to keep the wall for conversation, and if we allow any links to blog posts, they tend to swamp other conversation, so we just don't allow them. Thanks!

Thanks so much Olga! I would be very interested in what you thought of my novel -- if you felt like it was something you would be able to review and spread the word on if you liked it, I would be able to give you an e-copy as a review copy?

Thanks for the info (for some reason I can't approve your comment on She Writes, so am writing you here). My post will go up tomorrow with descriptions of what people are writing on, you'll also see the questions then. You'll send me answers to the questions and we'll link back to my blog--which I think is a very creative way to get around you not having a blog yet! I'd like to post your responses on Nov 27, so that will give you plenty of time. Thanks again for saying yes! More soon...
