Where have all the contests gone?



Congrats to Dianna, who won The Silence of the Stars (Stars #2) by Kate McMurray!

Congrats to bheds, who won Sharp Love (Gambling on Love #2) by Ava MarchSharp Love is being released today by Carina Press.



 

At this point, I have no upcoming contests on the schedule at all. *waits for everyone to recover* I definitely will still do contests for authors who email me or send me a PM on Goodreads, but I’m not actively drumming up contest business these days – after five years of doing so, I’ve grown a bit weary of the whole process, which my introverted self has always found exhausting. When I started hosting m/m book giveaways lo! those many years ago, there weren’t a whole lot of options (beyond Jessewave and Elisa Rolle) for m/m authors to let readers know about new work. The Goodreads m/m group was maybe a year old and didn’t have many members. There were a few m/m review blogs such as Jenre, Kassa, DIK (Desert Island Keepers), and Kris’n’Good Books, but they were a fraction of the number of m/m review blogs available now. And m/m books were being released at a slow enough rate that we could read nearly everything as it came out.

So yeah, both authors and readers have a lot more options these days. I’ll still be among those options, but at a more sedate pace/level than previously. I’ll still be doing the Misadventures in Stock Photography most Mondays and Linkity most Fridays. And you can always keep an eye on things via my RSS feed.

Many, many thanks to all the authors and readers who’ve supported Stumbling Over Chaos (and whom I’ve had the opportunity to support) over the years!

New Link to Linkity

For some reason, my blog feed for today’s linkity post Last of the Linkity Until November 12 isn’t updating. *muttergrumblemutter*

This link to linkity is a workaround. Hopefully. :)

Thanks for visiting!

Blog permalink structure changed!

As part of trying to reduce the number of internal server errors y’all get when trying to access my site, I’ve been doing some optimization. Part of that has required that I change the post permalink structure.

Previously, the structure looked like this: http://www.stumblingoverchaos.com/?p=5978

Now it will look like this: http://www.stumblingoverchaos.com/archives/5978

Any links you have to specific posts are now broken. Sorry about that! This, sadly, is a result of getting spam cannoned several times each day recently.

Also, this broke the crap out of my internal linking. I ran a script to clean that up, but there may be a few strays. Let me know if you hit any, ok? Thanks!
