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:

I will accept names from other blog tour blogsites. Those blog owners will have to email me the names.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.

Be sure to visit the other participants.
