Here are a few important announcements, as we usher in March, and end the first quarter of 2015.
A special welcome to my new followers!
Here's the scoop:
THE "ROAR" SERIES
- Join me later this month as I continue the popular Roar Series. Named after Helen Reddy's "I am Woman Hear me Roar" anthem of former decades, the Roar Series highlights the accomplishments and gifts of women worldwide during National Women's History Month. Accordingly, I'll have interviews, guest posts, and features of "fierce" female writers and artists. Find out more about Roar. You don't wanna' miss it!
- This just in! Inkitt.com is sponsoring a spooky horror contest from March 3rd-March 31st. The theme is "Running Scared!" Check out their site for more details and related guidelines.
- Writers seeking to build a more solid author's platform and construct novels that truly resonate with readers, look no further. C.S. Lakin provides the nuts and bolts, as well as "insider's secrets" in her new book, "The 12 Pillars of Novel Construction." It's an engaging, informative read on how to craft stories with authenticity and authority. The book also has a companion workbook that is chock full of practical tips, easy to follow examples, and invaluable information to increase your odds of publishing success. By the way, Lakin's site has been recognized with "Top Blog" Awards for several years consecutively. She knows her stuff. To learn more, visit, Live, Write, Thrive.
- Working Writer is a bi-monthly publication that deals with all phases of writing, blogging, and publishing for today's writers. The editor is seeking articles on various topics, from 300-1200 words. And if you hate the wait, I think you'll be happy to know that the response time is typically super fast. To learn more, connect with Maggie at Working Writer.
- Jen will be "out of the building" for a much needed break. Let's reconnect on or around March 12th. Please feel free to leave comments or questions in the interim. I'll be checking periodically, and you know I always love to hear from you!
