Welcome friends from far and near,
Thanks for taking time; for being here.
First, some business, before we play,
Disqualification for all who stray!
Sign in at the comments down below,
New clues, every 10, after you go.
Leave Respectful words at each new place,
Stay On Blog Topic--or you're out of this race.
Collect Jon's clues from the comment pile,
Visible by their CAPITAL style.
Return again, comment that you're done,
Submit your phrase, maybe you've won!
There's not much more for you to know.
Welcome to the circus; away we go!
Today Jon is visiting business blogs, to and fro.
Agents, Editors, Publishers, in the know.
(Playing at business blogs is a bit less disruptive, you see.
Next time, we drive readership to your blog, masterfully.)
Clue #1 @ 1:00 EST
It's an informative place, that's for sure.
As far as the crow flies, or just a bit more,
All her authors, Sara invites to post.
Welcome to the nest, she's a wonderful host.
Clue #2 @ 1:10
Now that you've left your first comment--felt a part of the game,
Or maybe you didn't solve number one; still, feel no shame.
However, there might be shame at number two.
If pimping your novel isn't easy for you.
Clue #3 @ 1:20
It's not WIBIJ these days without visiting that scary sword wielding gal,
Describing a font dork moment, while channeling her Gollum pal.
I'm sure she won't reject a WIBIJ author-friend.
Especially since a gay werewolf fairy novel is exactly what you've penned.
Clue #4 @ 1:30
A spin-off of two is number four.
If math's not your thing than science may be a bore.
But, the science of romance novels, surely you jest.
Regardless, Laura, we think you are the best!
Clue #5 @ 1:40
The Amazing Race always has an equalizing flight
A long wait so others can catch up, put you in their sight.
Here is ours, so patience to skim Monday's post must be found.
Just remember, Nathan does it every day, with nary a sound.
