Summer is Coming — Let’s Pimp and Promote!

Summer is coming up fast and here at Writers in the Storm we’re marking the occasion with a little “Pimp and Promote.” Of course, this always costs us some money, because we have to go out and buy lots of books. But there will be awesome “beach read” sales in next few weeks, so let’s go for it!

How does this work?

To quote the genie in Aladdin, “There are a few provisos, a couple of quid-pro-quos…”

  • Pimp out somebody else’s work – this can be a favorite author, blogger, post or book you’ve read, a wonderful teacher or just someone who had profound influence on you as a writer or a person. Please limit your comments to one work.
  • Promote one of your projects that you’re excited about – a hobby, a blog, a book, or a new direction your writing is taking you. You decide. Just tell us about it in the comments! (Please restrain your enthusiasm to just one of your WIPs.) The rest of us will jump in and “ooooh and ahh” at you, and likely promote your project even further because we’re just so darn excited today.

We’ll start things off by doing some P&P with the gals here at WITS…

Fae Rowen has been a world traveler lately, so we’ll hear from her in her next post. You can visit her updated website here. She’s added a short story about her stint in a convent.

Jenny Hansen has been building a freelance career and doing a metric ton of articles, social media marketing and copywriting. Her site is here. Take a peek, she’s looking for feedback.

Laura Drake has a new book coming out next month, Twice in a Blue Moon, available for only $3.99 on Amazon Kindle pre-order. (Wowza!)

Orly Konig-Lopez is the president of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association and they’re holding an amazing retreat in September. Registration opens today and seats are in demand. Details here.

See? Easy-peasy. Only one of us wrote this, but all of us are represented – that’s the spirit of P&P.

Don’t be shy — tell your pals! 

We are open for as many entries as you want, and you’re welcome to send anyone who reads great stuff our way. We want to hear about it! Be sure to peruse the comments. You might find a few things you like in the plethora of pimping that’s about to ensue.

Thanks again for making WITS one of the top writer’s blogs! We appreciate you.

~  Jenny, Laura, Orly, and Fae
