Countdown to NaNo — Introduction

Participant-2014-Twitter-ProfileNovember 1st is soon upon us, and it is time for NaNoWriMo. Already been a year… what a year it has been. I published one book, which has great reviews. I have met a great number of people who have given me fantastic support. I rubbed elbow with authors, and I now have a voice within the community. A small one, but it is there.

It was last years NaNo that convinced me to become an author once more. I didn’t just complete it, I annihilated it. 50,000 words in 14 days. Will I do it again? I don’t know. I know I’ll get 50,000 words. Maybe in 40 days, maybe in 10 days.

IWSG — July Optimisim

IWSG badgeSo, quite a bit to talk about in this one. I try to reserve IWSG for the woes in life but too many good things have happened as of late for me to do that. Going forward, I hope the good times continue.

Madness Blog-Con PC 14 – Janni Lee Simner

janniauthorphotoOne of the tough things about visit booths is that writer’s hope you will buy their book. They never put that pressure on people coming up to their booth, nor do they mention it. I do feel a bit guilty that I can’t buy one of their books and support them even more. However, that guilt is my own doing.

I swear one of these years, I’ll bring $1000 with me so I can buy one book from each author I can. Now just to get the $1000.

Here we are with Janni Lee Simner

Madness Blog-Con PC 14 – Leanna Renee Hieber

photo-by-c-johnstone-http-cassandrajohnstone-tumblr-comAn interesting experience I had in meeting with Authors, especially novelists, is that they wanted to know more about me as a person over what I was writing. I admit that I myself want to know the people behind a book more than the book itself, though I thought I was unique in that.

It is great to find that some of your idiosyncrasies are shared by other successful people and you definitely feel you are in the right place.

One of the few people I remember really well from the con is Leanna Renee Hieber.
