Meet Me in the Alley...

How's that for a suspicious title? ;) Here's the deal. I'm over at NA Alley today and tomorrow, handling the Blog Me Maybe prompts. If you join me, I can promise you three things:
  1. You'll find out my take on writing NA (Monday).
  2. You'll see two of my digital paintings (Tuesday).
  3. I will love you forever.
In case you forgot, I have no shame. :) This way to the Alley!

P.S. You still have until Friday to enter my 1st Blogiversary Giveaway
Have a great week, guys!

Nancy Thompson said...

Just came back from speaking my mind. Great article, Carrie!

Natasha Hanova said...

I was just discussing this with my husband yesterday. He's not a writer, so he didn't truly understand the problem, but he pretended.

Hoping over to read your post.

Melissa said...

Been there, done that. And I thought you already loved me. *pouts*

:P

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Victoria! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Woohoo! I love it when you speak your mind. :D Thanks, Nancy!

Carrie Butler said...

Hey, at least he pretended. *Grins* Thank you, Natasha!

Carrie Butler said...

I do!

...But think of that click-through as a renewal. LOL

Love what you're doing for the NA awareness :D And fun giveaway! Fun, fun, fun! You rock, Carrie. You're such a great/strong presence in this writing community ;)

I really enjoy your blogging style, Carrie -- here and on NA Alley -- and I think your blogging "voice", so to say, is just really genuine and kind no matter what you're talking about.

Talli Roland said...

What the heck is NA? Should I know that?

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Morgan! We're doing everything we can think of to get NA out there. I really appreciate your support! :)

Carrie Butler said...

D'aww...

Thank you, Bailey! That's so kind of you to say. :D I enjoy your blogging style, too!

Carrie Butler said...

Oops. Sorry about that, Talli!

NA is new adult (also known as upper YA or twenty-something fiction). Basically, books caught between YA and adult fiction, where the protagonist is between 18 and 25ish.

Actually, now that I think about it, Build a Man could fall into that category. How cool is that? :)

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

I entered...I'm going for the critique! ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Duly noted. :D Thanks for entering, Jaycee!

Brooke R. Busse said...

I read your Monday NA post before I got here. (I'm just a day behind on posts.) And I second Bailey's comment.

Jennifer Hillier said...

Heading over right now... :)

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

I'm so late. I have excuses, but they're boring. Mosquitos are deadly up here; need I say more? Anyway, I did go and visit, and now I'm so pleased I did. What talent!!!

Carrie Butler said...

Aww, thanks, Brooke! :D I apprecaite that.

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Jennifer! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Eek. Mosquitos are never fun to contend with!

Thank you, Joylene. Thanks so kind of you. :)

Leigh Covington said...

I've been MIA this month, so I'm on my way to the alley now! As long as you promise to love me forever! ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Are you kidding me? Of course I'll love you forever! ;) We've missed you around here!

Elana Johnson said...

Oooh, forever love. Nice. On my way.

Carrie Butler said...

You betcha! *Grins* Thanks, Elana!

Mason T. Matchak said...

Might be a bit behind on this, but I just learned about New Adult thanks to your tweets and I'm thrilled. It's like an entire genre made for what I like to write. ^_^ Thanks for the news, and I'll be following along at NA Alley.

Carrie Butler said...

Oh, that's fantastic! We'll be glad to have you, Mason. :D

ilima said...

Just left you an award on my blog!

Sara said...

Cool contest! I'm over from David P. King's blog, now I'm about to head over to NA Ally, which is something I've never heard of but sounds supper cool, and probably right where I am.

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you so much, Ilima! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Welcome, Sara! :) Thanks for stopping by!
