I haven't been on SheWrites much lately. Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose. I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though. Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders. I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group. How about YOU?
Thank you! I was wondering if Batman was your real last name or a nom de plume. Either way is cool, by the way, but I imagine if it is your real last name you probably have a lot of people humming the Batman theme song around you when they see you coming.
I want to thank you for joining my group Blooming Late!
You have quite a body of work and also have a wonderfully profession looking blog with brilliant writing!
There are many things we offer here at Blooming Late that you might be interested in so please make sure to view all the discussions and see all the great activity.
Please take some time to introduce yourself to the group in our Kicking It Off discussion if you havent already and please make sure you list your Blog and your books in the pages section to the left of the group main page so everyone can find you and your books!
Thank you for already being in the group to a degree and commenting, we look forward to hearing more from you and I am sure you have already noticed that we have a unique group of great women who are a support, encouragement and inspiration for your writing.
Vicki, Thanks for your friend request, and I would love to be friends. There are so many places for folks to promote books online, and so few venues for writers to connect, and I really value She Writes for that connection - getting to know other writers and helping each other (help and support that was indispensible to me before and as I was getting published, and still is). Because of that, I've held to a policy since I joined of accepting friendships only from people who don't use book jacket covers or other promotional materials as their "face" here. I do understand the desire to have folks know that you have a book they might buy - please believe me on this. I certainly keep the jackets of my novels up on my homepage. But I like to think we are here for something different, and nearly every one of the wonderful writers here – including many award winning ones – do use personal photos. If you decide to change your profile photo, I would be delighted to count you as a friend.
Glad to have you in the novelist group! You might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. And we do a live chat every Wednesday; hope you can join us for that!
Working on my memoir, I've turned to many, many (many many, too many) books with tips on how to get started, organized, and inspired. I also read a lot of what other authors say about the process and will share quotes here, as well. I'll begin…See More
