I can't wait for this. The posse is composed of a great group of writers, many of whom we've interviewed at The Long and the Short of It. Some of these authors have also donated autographed books you have a chance to win in our Happy New Year contest. If you haven't told your readers about it, why not? It's painless and it gives you something fun to blog about. Just be sure and sign Mr. Linky to let us know where we can find your post.
