In October, we put out a call to our Balloon Juice writers, asking if anyone was interested in having their
books work included in our list of published authors. There was quite a bit of interest, and the result is the first draft you will find at the Our Authors link in the footer on the new site.
So much talent here on Balloon Juice!
Dorothy Winsor’s comment about her book in the morning thread reminded me that this is the perfect time to ask for a second round of submissions by our authors. Past time, actually! I had planned to have an updated list in place by December 1, in time for gift-buying season, so I am running out of daylight on this one.
For our published authors, we are asking for Balloon Juice people only, not family members. (The cousin to this list – Our Artists & Artisans – can include spouses and partners. John was waiting for the new site to put out his call for artists and artisans, so I suspect we may see that soon.)
What you need to know before submitting your information:
- Up to 3 publications can be listed on Our Published Authors page. (fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, plays, poetry…)
- They must be written by Balloon Juice people only, not family members.
- Please please please submit your information in the format below.
- Please copy the contents of the window below into your comment and fill in the blanks.
Balloon Juice Nym:
Do you want your BJ nym displayed with your entry? (yes or no)
Author URL, if you have one:
Title 1 category/type:
Title 1 URL:
Title 2 category/type:
Title 2 URL:
Title 3 category/type:
Title 3 URL:
We have a better idea of what we are looking for and what the limitations are this time around, so if you supplied information during the first call, please check Our Authors in the footer so we can make any changes or additions to your information.
If you want to make changes or additions to your listing, please use the format above.
Update: If you do not want us to know that “Little Surfer” is actually Diana VanWriter, then please send email to WaterGirl at the balloon juice address. You can copy the format into your email message and fill it in there. I”ll need to know what nym connects with which author, but that will never be published anywhere, so no one else will see it.
