Hooray, autumn has arrived. The leaves aren’t turning yet, but the weather is cooling down and the evenings are beautiful. (And a whole new set of allergens have blown into town.) ‘Tis one of my four favorite seasons! Are you ready for apple ciders and pumpkin scones?
What do you think of Author Newsletters | Mailing List?
I see every so often that “we” (writers) need one (I have one). What I’m curious about is what you like to see or not see in the mailings. For me, I sign up to get updates on their books, appearances, or “news.” I like them infrequent. I don’t need a weekly or monthly update. Does a freebie something make you more likely to sign-up?
Do you look at your old posts?
I do. Sometimes just for nostalgia, other times to see if there are typos or confusing sentences (which I fix). I also add information I stumble upon to the Writer Guide posts. For example, to the color posts, I recently added information about color phobia. Something I really didn’t think about, but, wow, wouldn’t that be a great character quirk!
glaucophobia is the fear of gray
Interested in Beta Reading?
I’m looking for a couple of readers for a children’s chapter book about a ghost. It’s about 3,000 words. It was originally written for a specific person, but I’ve rewritten it for a wider audience. So, I’m especially interested in how the ending is working. If you’re interested, leave a comment or email me and I’ll send you the beginning. UPDATE: got two takers. Thanks!
Ask Me Anything
Go ahead. Ask me anything. Points for creativity. I’ll post the answers next month, unless, of course, no one asks anything. Brought to you by TheHappyWhisk (in that she inspired me to ask you to ask me questions).
