Musiville: A Reader’s Tale and a Giveaway

This was just too sweet not to share. 🙂 Have a wonderful Monday!

Nicholas C. Rossis

I recently received a wonderful surprise from a reader friend, who is the work-at-home father of an 8-year-old. He wrote to me to share how much he and his son had enjoyed Musiville, asking me that I share his story on my blog as a guest post. I hope you enjoy his post as much as I did!

Since Father’s Day is just around the corner, he has inspired me to give away Musiville between the 13th and the 18th in the hope that more fathers can enjoy reading it with their little girls and boys. So, unless you prefer the print version, you may wish to wait for a couple of days and get it for free!

BB 2

What is my point, you ask?

The point is BlogBattle is coming back! Yes. You heard me right. We will battle once again. There will be changes, so be prepared.

The good news? The parts of battle we all liked best will be back, and all the stuff that bogged it down will be wiped away. We’ll prompt once a month, genre requirements will disappear, your stories will be listed, and there will be opportunity to be found and read by the waiting world. Voting will be gone, but there’ll still be incentive to participate in the form of my (and possibly one or two other admin’s consensus) top pick for the…
