Name Your Group Blog(s), Or Others

Today, I'm inviting everyone to leave links for your group blog, your own or others. There are many great ones out there, and we need to get the word out.

I'll start with mine -
Acme Authors Link - - where I blog every Wednesday -
A great group of romance and mystery authors sharing experiences as authors in our genres and writing tips in general.

Make Mine Mystery - -
As the name implies, we're mystery authors. Our posts reflect that, as well as observations on the writing craft.

The Blood-Red Pencil -
A group of editors and authors, who share tips on writing and editing.

All of my group blogs also host guests on occasion.

Those are mine. What are yours?

I have several blogs but the two most important ones are:
1. for beginning writers, writers for children and YA, and those who read and buy books. I do book reviews and offer tips for writers to become the authors they can be at
2. my blog for parents and children who are dealing with serious illness is at
3. I am a member of The Working Writer's club mentored by Suzanne Lieurance and I can't tell you how much you can learn from this club.

http://writingstrongwomen. com is my blog--with posts once a week, where we talk about everything that has to do with strong women. Some is light-hearted, some is serious--with tales of women who fought in WWII--or survived abuse. It is dedicated to all the women who have inspired me, and even some of those who got on my last nerve--but still led me to learn how to be strong. I'd love for you to visit and comment
