Angie Karcher and RhyPiBoMo

Angie Karcher is just getting started on her blogging journey. Angie is a poet and loves to write rhyming stories. She posts poetry, her writing journey, and any book or contest news she finds out. She's a blogger to watch, because soon her blog will be busy... especially in April, but before I tell you about that I'll give you her link. You can take a look at Angie's blog here: http://angiekarcher.wordpress.com/

Angie is a busy mom of four who decided back in 2001 that she wanted to try the crazy road of having kids and writing too. Before she had kids she always had a job that revolved around education and children, so what a perfect way to bring everything together! Maybe she should have always known that she wanted to be a writer- she even said so when she was seven (see Angie's "All About Me") page. Maybe she did know she wanted to be a writer, but just didn't remember. I know how that is... it's definitely mommy brain! She is a wonderful writer, so I'm glad Angie is writing her poetry.

Angie is a spitfire among new bloggers. She wants to make her mark on the blogging world. As such she is starting a new event! Her event? RhyPiBoMo! But what does it mean? If you haven't already guessed it's Rhyming Picture Book Month! This event takes place in April for the first time this year!

You can also join in some RhyPiBoMo fun. Join The Golden Quill Guest Blogger Treasure Hunt! Just look for this badge in a blog (not mine of course) and post about it when you find this badge. By posting about it I mean everywhere! If you find a guest blogger don't keep it a secret! Post on Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest your blog, any anywhere else you can think to post this. It will be a lot of fun, and you can help Angie get the word out about her event!

Angie has... count them 35 guest bloggers for this event! On top of having all these great people (the list will be annouced soon), Angie is also going to have some great prizes as well! Sorry guys, she hasn't filled me in on the details of the prizes yet! Keep checking her blog to see!

Rhyming picture books is an area that I'd personally like to work on. Writing picture books is hard, and some people think that creating a rhyming picture book is easy. Believe me, it's not! I like rhyme, but the words have to flow just right or the whole story is wrong. I think every writer should try working on their own rhyming picture book so I hope you will join me in April at this event.
