And a little plug.
I just joined The Writers Forum on Facebook . . .
“A SUPPORTIVE FORUM FOR WRITERS AT ALL LEVELS TO DISCUSS WRITING TOPICS, DEBATE BURNING ISSUES RELATED TO PUBLISHING, TO PUBLICISE YOUR NOVEL AND TO SEEK SUPPORT OF EVERY KIND IN HELPING YOU TO BECOME A BETTER WRITER.”
In 13 weeks, since being created, it has acquired over 5,000 members. Pretty awesome. But no surprise.
What a blast (to use an old, but valid, expression). There’s useful information for writers regarding editing, reviews, and marketing, among other things. You can promote your novel weekly, share your work and self, and support other members. There are a lot of entertaining challenges, too. My favorites are those where you provide the last sentence of a novel, based on the posted pic; what a hoot (to use another old, but valid expression, he-he).
I’m sure they’d love it if you checked them out. If you decide to join, do review and respect the usual guidelines.
I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction.
So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects).
It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
