Writer Friends


This week's challenge is book boyfriends or girlfriends. I'm changing it to my writer friends. Some are bloggers and others are in my writing group.

Berthold Gambrel: Blogger friend who has graciously reviewed a few of my books and even posted on Amazon. I've reviewed some of his works and have seen him grow as a writer. I wouldn't know about TTT or WWBC if I hadn't met fellow bloggers that post on them. My heartfelt gratitude for Berthold for reviving my blogging experience that stagnated.

To Tena, Marianne, Megan, Aymee, Judy, Echo and Tanith: Fellow WWBC bloggers I enjoy your thoughts and the books you mention. Without y'all I'd never have read Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom, and others that I've heard about from you and my TBR list is as long as my arm from others I've not had time for, yet.

Lydia Schoch: Fellow blogger with Berthold that introduced me to TTT and WWBC. She's been a great encouragement for me to keep joining in with memes.

Yogi: My longest blogger friend. We lost touch for a bit, but it's nice we're posting comments again. He's into geocaching and posting lots of picture.


Hank Bruce: We've been members of Southwest Writer's Workshop and Writers2writers, which he's helped me revive after ten years. An overall nice guy who is actively engaged in alleviating world hunger with the Maringa Tree, subject of a recent post. He's also a beta reader for some of my books and has posted reviews on Amazon.


Dr. Irene Blea: Fellow SWWW and W2W member. She's the nicest lady you'll ever meet. A writer of college textbooks on feminism and the Latina movement. I've posted about a number of her books previously. She's currently writing her autobiography and it will be incredible.

Thank you for the shout out! It made my day.

I'm off to click on the links to the people on your list I don't already follow now. :)

And thanks for stopping by my post already today.

Good of you to stop by and check on the others I've mentioned, Lydia.

Tena said...

Thanks for the shout out. Interesting the way you changed the topic. Way to go! I enjoy reading each and every blogger listed here. Read books I probably would never have found otherwise. Thanks for sharing. Here's mine.https://www.tenastetler.com/blog-challenge-book-boyfriend-or-girlfriend/

We're in good company, Tena. This was a hard one to comment on. It's hard to agree or disagree on a boyfriend.

Aymee said...

This is a great twist on the theme today. :) Makes me happy to know that someone's getting something out of the posts I make. Going to check out your other blogger and writer friends now, too!

P M Prescott said...

Thanks for dropping by Aymee.

Marianne Arkins said...

Awww … thanks!! And this weekly gathering has added to my TBR like crazy. It's been great to visit because everyone here reads (and writes) in different genres and it's really stretched my reading wings a bit. I love it!!

Berthold Gambrel said...

Thanks so much, Pat. I'm honored to be included, and so grateful to you for all your support and advice. Thanks again.

Wendi Zwaduk and Megan Slayer said...

That's a great list. I'm glad I got to meet you via the WWBC, too. :-)

P M Prescott said...

Yes it is a great group, Marianne.

P M Prescott said...

Great you came by, Berthold. You're a good friend.

P M Prescott said...

Good meeting you too, Megan.

Echo Ishii said...

That's so kind of you. Proud to call you a writer friend also.

Judy said...

I wish I could love this post a hundred times... thanks! Love reading your posts...not only from WWBC but others as well. Will be sure to check out the others you mentioned! Thanks for coming by yesterday :-)

P M Prescott said...

My pleasure, Echo

P M Prescott said...

I enjoy reading yours as well, Judy.

Maire @ Stringchronicity said...

What a lovely twist on the theme. I'm pretty sure I came across the WWBC through some of the same people's blogs. :)

P M Prescott said...

Thanks for coming by Marie, same time next week.

Tanith Davenport said...

Thanks for the shout out. I always enjoy visiting your blog.

P M Prescott said...

As I do visiting yours, Tanith.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I appreciate the shoutout.

You were the writer that made me realize that there are lots and lots of very talented writers out there who write all sorts of things that are very good that don't make the best seller lists but have books that are better than many of the top sellers.

Plus you were always real with your posts and told it like it is. I am not there yet. May not ever be.

P M Prescott said...

Thanks for the praise, it's in short supply, Yogi. I've always admired your pictures and what you find while geocaching.
