An Exciting Announcement

(Of course, the responsible prelude to this would be to issue the caveat that you, individually, may not actually find this announcement very exciting.  It all depends on your personal predilections.)


(If you don't like the Western genre, for instance, you will likely not be enthused.)

(Why is that?)

Because the Legends of Western Cinema Week blog party is coming back this summer!!

You may remember that a few years back, a blogger named Emma Jane and I co-hosted a fabulous blog party devoted to all things Western story-themed.  (In fact, I believe Emma may have been doing something similar for years before we even became acquainted.)  Book + movie reviews, rambling analyses on the constituents of the genre, games, tags, general fangirling . . . it was all there in abundance.

The tradition fizzled out as Emma Jane and I both became involved in other things.  But now, I'm very pleased to announce, the event is being reborn!  This year, my co-hostesses will be the lovely Heidi (of Along the Brandywine) and Hamlette (of Hamlette's Soliloquy).  I've enjoyed talking Westerns with both these ladies over the years, and we're quite excited to be teaming up for this. :D


The party will be held from July 21st to the 27th, and there will be hosting information on all three blogs.

Please join in!  We'd welcome any Western-related posts, from reviews to lists to whatever else you'd care to create.

Here are some buttons to help spread the word.  Grab one for your blog!

See you then!

(I mean, I'll probably see you before then, too.  But I will see you then specifically in connection to this.  You understand me.  Okay, shutting up.)

Post a Comment

Comments make my day. Seriously. I'd be so happy if you commented. :)

I've gotten really bad about replying in a timely manner, but it's always my intention to do so eventually. (Even though it doesn't always happen. ;))
