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 doing the final edits to launch her amazing books into the world. She’s sharing the lessons in posts like 8 Easy Ways for Your Characters To Show Love. You can visit her updated website here. There’s a wonderful short story about her stint in a convent.

Jenny Hansen does ghostwriting, WordPress sites, social media marketing and copywriting. Additionally, she’s readying her first finished novel for submission and training at an accounting firm. You can enjoy her silly fun at her personal blog, More Cowbell. Her most popular non-writing post is 10 Creative Ways to Express Your Inner F-Bomb.

Laura Drake’s latest story is part of an anthology with authors Christie Craig, Cynthia D’Alba, Katie Lane and Lori Wilde – When Things Got Hot In Texas. It’s available for pre-order for 99 cents, y’all! And the price goes up in a few days when it releases. We’re all ready to dive in when the book goes live on Monday.

Orly Konig’s first book, The Distance Home, hit bookshelves in May and is receiving stellar reviews. Her next book from Forge, The Merry-Go-Round, comes out next year.

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!

~  Fae, Jenny, Laura and Orly
