Life Update and Writing Challenge Progress
Time for a general update...
This video is good place to start:
Story Crafter Twitterchat
Being ill has slowed me down considerably but, as I'm a workaholic, I haven't stopped completely. Last night for example I took part in the weekly #StoryCrafter chat on Twitter. The chat is hosted by Faye Kirwin from @Writerology (if you don't already follow her, you should). I try to take part every Sunday.
Moving on... last nights chat was about search history. It was loads of fun, insightful, and nice to discover I'm not the only weirdo out there ;) I'll do a separate post to cover the chat in more detail tomorrow.
StoryCrafter isn't the only Twitterchat I regularly take part in. I have a few favourites, and will be doing a post soon to share them all with you. Not only are they a lot of fun to do, and great for meeting other writers/readers, they are awesome resources. Packed with tips, advice, and suggestions. If you know of a great Twitterchat for writers/readers please let me know the hashtag and I'll check it out.
Ideas, ideas, and more ideas.
Slowing down with my workload is always a risky business. The main problem being that my brain relaxes just enough to let more ideas to get in. Seriously ideas are like rabbits. There's no stopping them once they start multiplying. My brain goes into hyper-drive!
Anyway, I've added several pages to my ideas swipe file of ideas for articles, books, and webinars. I'll be putting together some new free resources soon too so make sure you check back to the free resources page.
I've been organising things for this years Promo Day event too. Find full details about this awesome FREE online event at www.PromoDay.net. Hope to see you there :)
Writers and Authors
I've been doing some updating over at www.WritersAndAuthors.info too. New graphics, and scheduling blog posts for the coming months. If you'd like to be featured on site please check out the submission guidelines on the website.
With the KOSMOS series releasing a new book each month, I've also been busy finding hosts, filling out forms, answering interviews, writing guest posts, etc... I'm touring all year through so if you'd like to host me on your blog, or even on your social media channel, please get in touch.
Book Cover Designs
I've also been working on some new book cover designs for clients. I can't share them all with you yet but will as soon as the official cover reveals are in place. If you'd like to know more about my cover designs, pricing, etc... check out http://www.jolinsdell.com/p/premade.html. Feel free to email me about custom designs.
And last, but not least, I've been catching up with my TBR list. I finished reading Seven Days to Goodbye by Sheri Levy (will film and upload my review soon). I also made progress on Sparks of Light by Janet B. Taylor, and now wish I'd read Into the Dim first.
I'm also been working my way through How to Get Great Book Reviews Frugally and Ethically by Carolyn Howard-Johnson. Loads of great tips and info!
Well that's me in a nutshell. Good job I'm taking it slow ;)
