As you can see I've begun posting a new type of entry. I'm a member of the Clash of the Titles blog alliance. This is my first post for them. Every other week I'll be posting their challenge for the week. You are invited to check out their website and vote for the title you think best for that weeks' challenge.
As a Christian writer it is important to me that the entities I affiliate with put God's Kingdom first. Here is the opening paragraph from COTT's about page:
"Clash of the Titles' ultimate goal is to glorify God in everything it does, including highlighting quality Christian writers. Our next goal is to unite readers with their favorite authors while challenging them to step outside of their preferred genre to try something new. On a lighter note, COTT is dedicated to the love of good, 'ole friendly competition!"
*guest post by Michelle Massaro and April Gardner Last week, COTT posted a "Flash Clash" in which readers had just 2 days to cast their votes between two 100-word excerpts. It was a fast one! But not so fast that voters didn't have time for their say. To add to the tension, the winner took the clash by a margin of one vote. That’s right. ONE vote difference. Both excerpts were so good, readers were split almost exactly down the middle. I love clashes that are this close!
The winner of our Flash Clash First Hundred is…
Rebecca Carey Lyle’s Winds of Wyoming.
Winds of Wyoming clashed against Tom Blubaugh’s Night of the Cossack. It was a pleasure getting to know both authors during this fun, super-speedy clash. We wish many blessings on their writing paths!
Here's what readers had to say about both books:
COTT is taking a spring break starting immediately. We will begin clashing again on April 2, 2012 when hostess Gail Pallotta brings us a brand new clash--Comparable Covers!
