Several debut authors decided to start a group blog to help authors connect with readers. The blog's first day was the same day as my name switch. They've introduced themselves and presented readers with 2 really awesome interviews. Then they had a drawing for a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card for everyone who commented yesterday. I won! I had already decided to visit the blog regularly (it's in the blogroll on the right), but this is just icing on the cake!
