Recap of A to Z Posts & Check Out These A to Z Bloggers – Part 2

15965050_1068241179964848_7193179799334160551_nThis is the second recap I will post during the 30 day A to Z Challenge. They will all publish on Sunday, our day off except for the last, which will roll off on May 1st. In the posts I will highlight new bloggers (And I hope new writing friends) that I discover along the way of sharing 26 posts in 30 days.

My theme is based on a novel I plan to write during the annual National Novel Writing Month in November. Now that we are seven post in I want to collect the links here for anyone late to the party.

If you missed last week’s recap you can catch up here: Recap & New Bloggers

Here is a preview to the posts coming this week:

Harrington – the fast growing city that could make or break both O’Grady Timber & Lumber and Rollins Lumber.

Ingrid O’Grady – the middle O’Grady sister that switches allegiance between Clementine and the oldest sister, Venus.

Pastor James Farragut – The Baptist minister who preaches against many of the things represented by the Steel Horse Saviors.

 Julius Kenner – The bank president of the only bank in Penley River, who may be working with Quentin Rollins or may be working Clementine against Quentin to his bank’s benefit.

Lulubelle – The steam engine that is the unheard star of the novel.

The Mystery of Lulubelle’s Origin – Finding out just how the Saviors came to possess Lulubelle seems to be a tall order. Every story begins differently no matter which Savior is doing the telling.

Here is a preview to the posts coming this week:

Nolan Russell – The second of the Steel Horse Saviors trio and the muscle of the operation.

O’Grady Timber & Lumber Company – Clementine’s pride and joy, the business her father built from nothing.

Penley River Trestle – another significant impediment to O’Grady T& L reaching their full potential.

Quentin Rollins – the villain, who constantly lays barriers in Clementine’s way.

Rollins Lumber Company – O’Grady T& L’s chief competitor, but one unable to match O’Grady’s maximum potential.

Saving O’Grady Timber & Lumber – The main plot of Steel Horse Saviors revolves around keeping O’Grady Timber & Lumber from failing, leaving not only the O’Grady family, but all their employees in the lurch.

Finally, but not the least important item is this short list of new bloggers I came across this week in my A to Z commenting. Please take a moment to clink on their blog links:

These folks I highlight have very different styles, so I want to introduce you to them and ask you to support their craft, by stopping by to say hello and give them some encouragement in the comments section. Tune in next week as I put this together again with another recap, preview and more new bloggers to enjoy!

  1. Thank you for the mention in your blog, Joe. Very kind of you. I plan on doing one of these as well, as without each other this blogging thing wouldn’t be as beneficial.
