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!
One Night In Cleveland is up for nomination in The Romance Reviews Summer 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards! You may recall The Wicked City won best urban fantasy in the Winter 2015 Awards. I’m up against some stiff (no pun intended) competition, but I’d be happy just to be nominated. Each book must get 50 nomination votes to get to the actual voting-to-win round, so that’s what I’m shamelessly begging for today.
You need to be registered for the site to nominate (or use your Facebook account), but signing up is simple and fast. Nominations go on until the end of March. I’d be HUGELY grateful for nominations and any spreading the word folks would like to do. Again, this is NOT voting for the competition, merely giving the book nominations to get into the actual voting round.
THANK YOU for helping me out! (Also, if you have a book in there yourself, let me know–I’ll nominate you too!)
