My uber connected and talented author friend Elise Stokes has joined a new group of MG authors, called Emblazoners.
Book Bloggers! Here’s an opportunity to share information about a brand new site and maybe win some prizes along the way!
Emblazon is a blog written by a collection of indie and traditionally published authors who care about producing high quality stories for kids. They have a particular focus on ages 11 to 14 (Tweens). The purpose of Emblazon is to celebrate tween literature. They’d like to draw attention to this fabulous genre, interact with other enthusiasts whether child or adult, and encourage new writers.
Emblazon launches its first post on July 10. Please consider helping them spread the word by mentioning them on your blog. You may cut and paste from this post and use the attached logo if you wish. Then tweet your Emblazoners post to @CassidyJonesAdv and include the hashtag #Emblazoners on July 10th (Note: You will not be entered into the drawing without your blog post tweet that includes @CassidyJonesAdv and #Emblazoners). But do NOT tweet it BEFORE JULY 10. @CassidyJonesAdv will confirm you’ve been entered into the drawing by “favoriting” your tweet. If your tweet wasn’t “favorited,” tweet it again. (All bloggers who participate will be entered into their $100 Amazon gift card drawing that will be held the following day).
You can also treat your readers to their upcoming Sizzling Freebies bash that will be hosted on Emblazon on August 1 during which a great selection of ebooks will be free for one day only.
Join them in kick-starting this fabulous new adventure!
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and in memory of my beautiful, gorgeous sister Mimi Larimore (who passed away from Ovarian Cancer, a sometimes genetically related disease), I will be sharing any and all posts, interviews, etc. here that I give talking about my Genetic Screening for Breast/Ovarian cancers. I was privileged to be interviewed (along with my cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Lisa Cassileth) by Deb Scott of “The Best People We Know” show on Blog Talk Radio about my surgeries and the genetic testing journey… Listen by clicking on the show title or the image below… Then, share this with anyone you know… It will save a life.
DO YOU THINK YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW SHOULD BE SCREENED?
If you know anyone who is faced with the decision to get the genetic screening for Breast or Ovarian Cancer, please tell them to consult with their doctor.Feel free to connect them with Ms. Raluca Kurz (raluca.kurz [at] cshs [dot] org) at the Cedars Sinai Genetic Counseling Center.
For anyone who has the gene, or is in any stage of Breast Cancer, please contact the office of Dr. Lisa Cassileth and let them know you heard about her from either me (Lisa Jey Davis) or from The Best People We Know show. Dr. Cassileth works with my oncologic surgeon, Dr. Leslie Memsic in her office, and you’ll be in the best hands possible:
