Feature & Follow Friday

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
  3. Put your blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post. This post is for people to find a place to say "hi" in your comments and that they are now following you.
  5. If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn't have GFC (Google Friend Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
  6. Follow follow follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow; comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI."
  7. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love...and the followers
  8. If you're new to the follow Friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

The question for this week is:
What is the first thing you would do if you woke up to find yourself in your favorite book?

If I woke up in this place found in Cephrael's Hand ...

... I'd blink, slowly, and blink some more before I laughed like a loon while rolling in the sand then jumping up, running with my arms waving around like an off-kilter bird as I joyously screamed for Trell of Tides, Tanis, Phaedor, and Pelas (okay, maybe not Pelas. He likes to hurt people, but he does have a good side, and he's the best, most lovable villain I've ever come across). Then I'd jump into a node at the nearby Dannym castle to T'khendar, the "evil" planet found in The Dagger of Adendigaeth, book two of the series, before I'd scream for Prince Ean val Lorian, Pirate Corian, the mastermind Bjorn, and the Sundragon Ramu, all the while thanking Melissa McPhail for her creation, wondering if the ill-omen constellation Cephrael's Hand is following me, and hoping I don't run into the best-known truthreader Raine D'LaCourte because I don't want him to know I didn't like him at first. Then, like this paragraph, as I'm about to pass out from just the thought of being there, I'd probably remember to get a damn grip and breathe.

(Find my reviews for the first two books of A Pattern of Shadow and Light  series, Cephrael's Hand  here
and The Dagger of Adendigaeth  here.)

So, what would you do in your favorite book? Join the hop and let us know!

P.S. Our GFC can be found at the bottom of the blog. Thanks for participating. Have a great weekend!
