This week has been rather slow on the writing front. I’ve been working with my book launch team to try to get that to take off. I’m still looking for some more people to join my Maladroit Lt’s. If you’re interested in fun contests, exclusive content and so much more, please let me know in the comments below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s not a huge time commitment and I promise it’ll be a lot of fun. Plus you’ll get to read my books (this includes the sequel I’m working on) before anyone else does! It’s a win-win situation.
The blog has been keeping me pretty busy lately so I haven’t had a whole lot of time to write but I’ve got the itch so I’m sure I’ll be carving out some time soon. I’m also trying to resurrect my second writing contest. I keep seeing all the amazing stuff that Beagles Freedom Project is doing and I want to get that book out to help them raise some money. So if you’re an author and you’d like to be involved, you can get the details for what I’m looking for HERE. Don’t mind the dates on it, just let me know you’d like to submit a piece and get writing! If your piece is chosen, it will be published by Writing Piazza Press as part of an anthology! Proceeds from the book will go to BFP so please consider donating a little of your time and talent to writing a short story.
Of course I am still working on my book blog tour. There are so many great blogs out there, it’s taking some serious effort to compile a list with contact info. But slowly and surely I will get it built. I’m hoping to get stuff lined up to kick off my book launch. This is my first one though so it will be a bit of a learning curve for me. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.
All the while I have been reading. I think reading is so, so important for writers. Not only does it help you learn your craft but great writing inspires. It helps a writer stay refreshed. It keeps the well of inspiration full. So I always try to get as much reading in as I can, when I write.
I’ve also been reading for book reviews. That’s a new thing we started doing here on TWP, book reviews. I have a couple other ladies who help me out with them and it’s been going well. I’ve received some great feedback on them. I’m excited to see where this fun little blog will take me next. I’m going to keep adding more and more content that hopefully you all will find helpful and entertaining.
Thanks for joining me on my journey so far. You all are the highlight of my writing week, I hope you know that. If you can believe it, it’s actually be about a year since I first started doing this blog! It’s crazy how the time passes. It’s interesting to look back and see how far things have progressed as well. Writing and publishing is a long distance race and I’m just going to keep putting one foot in front of the other. It helps to have all of you here with me cheering me on. I couldn’t do it without you!
Until we meet again.
