F is for...

Oh, okay, blog-fests. I bent the rules a little!
There are a couple of brilliant blogfests which have been announced over the past couple of days, and I just wanted to give you all a heads up.

Firstly, there is Hart (Confessions of a Watery Tart) and Elizabeth are holding the 'Crazy Cozy Blogfest' on June the 5th as both of them will be celebrating the release of their new Cozy Mystery books that day. Here's a brief bit of the blurb:

The idea is to think of the craziest, zaniest set-up for a cozy mystery you can—this is strictly for entertainment value—we don't plan to take these ideas and actually write series (though if you think YOU want to, go for it!). But we are asking you to come up with a wacky theme, a zany sleuth, a crazy setting for your OWN Crazy Cozy Mystery idea.

Secondly, the lovely Alex J. Cavanaugh has announced his 'First Loves' blogfest today. Held on May 14th, here's a bit of the blurb:

post your first loves – first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person. Four loves, one blogfest!

And there you have it folks, 'F' is for fests. Any of you going to join me doing these two? How're you finding week one of A-Z? Anyone planning any other blogfests you'd like me to add to my sidebar?

See you tomorrow

    Thanks. Ruby
