Bloggy Blogstuff

I’m going to quiet down here on the blog until April 1st, when the A to Z Challenge begins. I’ve been blogging myself silly getting all the posts ready for April and I want to take a little breather before the chaos starts. I’m also co-hosting the Insecure Writer’s Support Group on April 6th. So I’ll be taking a little break from blogging until April 1st, unless there’s some exciting news to share. In the meantime:

If you missed my A to Z Challenge theme reveal on Monday, it’s right here. I’m so grateful for all the responses and folks who visited my blog! I’m a little nervous now, I hope I can live up to everyone’s expectations. I promise I’ll try to be entertaining, funny, and informative. Try! Also, there was some concern voiced and I want to assure my readers–I am NOT making fun of romance novels or romance authors with this theme. I am a romance author! The theme will focus largely on writing techniques and mechanics in general, I simply chose the romance novel format because that’s what I write. Yes, it’s supposed to be a silly parody with exaggerated details, but I promise I have the utmost respect for romance books and authors…I do hope you’ll visit and judge for yourself!

In other news, if you haven’t seen, I have a book up for nomination in The Romance Reviews Summer 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards. I need to get fifty nominations by the end of March to get into the actual voting-to-win round, and I’d really appreciate a nomination if you can spare one! I’m not quite halfway there yet. Last winter my novel The Wicked City won best urban fantasy in the same awards. You need to sign up for the site to nominate, but it’s quite easy. Thank you so much!

So that’s it, it will be quiet around here until April 1st–unless it’s not–so I can warm up my blogging muscles and take a little rest. I may also have a big (good) upheaval in my life over the next few weeks that will take my focus offline somewhat. However, I will still be around on Facebook and Twitter if you want to chat.

Have a lovely week! Get ready for April!

  2. Oh, I wish I could take a break before the challenge starts. But at least today I’ve finished drafting my posts and I’m very happy about it. I’m way better off than I was last year.

    Just to let you know, I’ve nominated you πŸ˜‰


  3. So glad to hear that! I posted something recently about how I learned everything I know about writing from the romance novel workshops I attended in my 20s. The writer who responded was obviously looking down her nose at me for mentioning romance, but I pretended I didn’t even get she was doing that and just kept emphasizing how supportive romance novelists are of each other. I’ve been thinking about unfriending her because of it, though. Or at least unsubscribing from any of her posts.



    1. I really hate when people put down romance novels and authors, considering by the 2000’s romance became the most popular genre in modern literature with over a BILLION dollars in sales: So gosh, SOMEONE has to be reading it…a lot of someones!

      I can’t understand literature ‘purists’ looking down their noses at it. I can bet you most of these people who scoff have had a romantic relationship in their lives–but it’s not okay for the reality of our lives to become fiction?! Hmmm…
