Carnival of Storytelling – May 12, 2011

Welcome to the May 12, 2011 edition of Carnival of Storytelling.

This post is late again, backdated to the schedule date and time.

I spent the last week plus some putting up my Character Fiction 101 site. I’m still collecting beta-testers for the site, and smoothing out a rough edge or two. Even though I’m not promoting it in earnest yet, you’re welcome to check out the site. Then shoot me an email and let me know how it went.

Thanks to everyone who submitted a link at



Books etc.

Thanks for including a link to my blog post! 🙂

Blog Carnivals used to be fun.
But now it appears that I’m done.
Cuz the site we’re all using
To build them’s refusing
My stuff — no more Mad Kane post fun.

Howdy Tim, thanks once again for including an article from Byteful Travel in your blog carnival! I hope people find the story of my nightmare useful.

Yikes, Madeline. I’ll start accepting submissions via email, too, then.
