CSFF Blog Tour Day 1: Dragons, Knights, and Angels

Today kicks off the CSFF Blog tour of DKA--DRAGONS, KNIGHTS, & ANGELS!

I think they've pretty much captured our attention with the name, don't you?

The first page pulls you right in with all of the fiction stories and poetry displayed and quick links to discuss them in the forums.

Mirtika Ana Schultz, the poetry editor, is the only editor over there that I know personally, though I've never met her in person. It's amazing what email, IMs and forums do for us. We can come to know people we otherwise would never meet.

Mirtika will be offering a contest at her blog during the tour. She says this:
Anyone who posts a comment under one of the blog tour posts here at Mirathon from Mon thru Wed just has to say, "Enter me into the critique contest," and that's enough to get your name in the hat. I will accept names from other blog tour blogsites. Those blog owners will have to email me the names.

Read more about it at Mirathon.
I especially like this statement from John Cooke in the DKA Vision Statement:
To my way of thinking, dragons represent the mystical, the unknown world, dangerous and magical and huge beyond reckoning. Knights represent the horizontal, selfless but moral humans fighting the good fight with feeble flesh and faith. Angels represent the vertical, messengers of an almighty God, purveyors of Providence, proof of the unprovable, denizens of a supernatural spiritual reality.
There's so much more happening this week including announcing the winners of the poetry contest. Be sure to visit the other participants.
