Question: Have you taken advantage of the annual A to Z Challenge in terms of marketing, networking, publicity for your book? What were the results?
Ut oh... No, but there's a reason for that. Something about my overused excuse--health. See, I've never even attempted the A to Z Challenge. I know my limits and I know I can't even think of that many posts in one month or even a theme. Add that I don't have a book to market, and you have a hive of reasons for not even being a member of that challenge.
Okay. Okay. I know your wondering what's keeping me in the IWSG? I know I'm not good at visiting around. That makes me sorry at supporting all of the rest of you. I can only blame my lack of focus and energy. I'll try to do better.
But, I do have some stellar links for you this month. :-)
Great link: Check out Jennifer Johnson-Blalock's "Six Tips for Sending a Requested Manuscript."
And "STORY GENIUS--for Pantsers."
And one more! "How to Write a Novel".
I couldn't leave this out--"Writer Guilt vs. Writer Shame."
And one more--I'm on a roll--Nathan Bransford offers another good post of queries--"Summarizing Through Specificity"
Next Post: April's Book Pusher Mini Reviews, of course!
(Psst! I might not be very good at other things, but I am good at pushing books.)
