Be My Guest: Bestow Your Wisdom on the Masses!

Writing

Just a quick post today.

I’m officially inviting other readers, writers, editors, and publishing pros to come and be a guest on my blog! I’m open to topics so feel free to let me know what you’d like to write about. Some ideas, randomly:

  • who inspired you to write/edit/whateveryoudoinpublishing
  • your favorite authors/characters/worlds and why
  • how you launched your most recent book
  • how you got into publishing
  • what your writing process looks like
  • what your favorite genres are to read/write in
  • what genres you’re interested in trying out
  • how you navigate the social media world and get actual work done
  • what conferences/conventions you love to attend and why
  • how you got your big break
  • how the publishing industry has changed since you started
  • what you’re looking for in submissions (for agents/editors)
  • what marketing/promo stuff worked for you

That’s just a short list to get your brain going, but as I said, I’m open to discussing what you might want to write.

 

 

Interested? Head on over to the Contact Me page and drop me a line! Let me know who you are, what you do, what you’d like to write about, and a give me a link to your online presence.

As a note, I’m looking for people who take writing seriously — published and aspiring authors — not just “pro-bloggers” who are trying to get their link all over the web.

As always, stay awesome!

Back with a Fun Announcement!

Spec-Chic, Writing

What I’m Listening To: West Wing 10 year cast reunion on the Today Show – Can I vote for Jed Bartlett this presidential election, please?

Something Cool: I’m reading (listening to) Laurell K. Hamilton’s debut novel, Guilty Pleasures, for the first time (shhh…don’t tell her).

Anyone who’s followed this blog over the years knows that I’m pretty bad at being consistent over the long term. At least this time three years haven’t gone careening by!

I’ve actually been very caught up in life since about March. There have been various medical things going on with me and my family (both bio and chosen) that have kept me completely sidetracked. I’m getting back on track though, finally! Expect more updates on the writing and some publishing projects!

Speculative Chic

The exciting thing today, though, is that I’m part of a new collaborative blog project called Speculative Chic! We’re a group of folks who are into specfic books, movies, games, tv shows, and pretty much anything else geeky and creative! And today is our official launch day!! Isn’t that super exciting? I’m completely stoked. We already have a lot of content up (check out our Sound Off on the new Ghostbusters movie!), so hop on over there and jump into the conversation!

Until next time!
