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...
Jenny Hansen is in the middle of three marketing campaigns that include WordPress site updates, social media marketing and copywriting. Currently, she's working on a memoir she describes as "Like WILD, but with pregnancy...and funny." You can enjoy her silly fun at her personal blog, More Cowbell.
Julie Glover has been copy editing, planning more writing workshops to offer in person or online, working on a cozy mystery, and plotting a new, hush-hush series with award-winning author Christina Delay. She's also looking forward to having an empty nest in the near future — though she'll miss her sons, they're ready to launch and she'll get more done!
Laura Drake's next novel is due out in December, but available for preorder NOW!
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, Julie and Laura
