(not) add it to the list

add it to the list is inspired by In My Mailbox hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.

typically, this is a meme where you share the books/bookish things you got in your mailbox OR from the library OR from friends etc etc. but for me, i didn't get anything in my mailbox this week or add anything to my list.

and i'm okay with that. truly, i am. you should see my TBR stacks in the spare bedroom. i rearranged them today, so perhaps i'll share that with you sometime soon...if i remember (no promises).

but what i DID get this week was equally exciting, if not more so, than receiving books. i know, bear with me and swallow the sickness that there is something MORE exciting in life than getting more books.

Eric Smith, of Quirk Publishing and an author, recently wrote a pretty solid post over at his blog. you can peep the full story here. his article made my heart sing for several reasons.

1. it's in list form. y'all KNOW this girl loves lists!
2. the advice he gives to publishers and authors is spot on. seriously.
3. the advice and encouragement he gives to bloggers is spot on. i honestly need reminding at least weekly that having a small blog is okay and that size doesn't matter. and i'd totally be lying if i said i didn't giggle when i saw 'size doesn't matter' on his list. what can i say, i will always and forever have the personality of a 12 year old boy.
4. HE MENTIONS ME. yeah, it's kind of a huge deal. for me, anyway.

so if you haven't had a chance to check out the post, please do. and not just to see if i'm telling the truth about getting a shout out or not (i am) but to read the advice that he shares. it's good stuff.

another link to the full article right here.

and in case any purists are wondering, i did not link this up at The Story Siren this week. but that doesn't mean you can't share your mailboxes with me! share what you got in the comments, or leave me a link!

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. I remember seeing your fangirl tweets about this last week. Lisa you are FAMOUS! and I love it :-)

  2. Great blog. I'll be back to hang out.

  3. Super awesome.
    Also I liked his blogpost. He is correct. Must be a smart dude. :)
