For those of you who have done NanoWriMo, or wanted to do NanoWriMo, or tried doing NanoWriMo, let me introduce you to Fast Draft. This is like NanoWriMo in boot camp. Visit Candace Haven's website for more information on how to complete your novel in 2 weeks (under workshops). Don't expect to get anything else done in your life during this time, but do expect to feel accomplished! Like NanoWriMo, it's all online, and I'd totally attend if I didn't have a new born joining me in 3 days.
Curious as to the 2008 Publishing Industry trends? The 26th Story posted an image of a "Subway" map of such trends. Don't ask me how to read it, but it is interesting so I thought I'd post it here.
Caren Johnson Literary Agency is having a 1 day "pitch session" on their newly vamped blog. You have until Wednesday at noon to comment a 2-3 sentence pitch/query to gauge her interest. Check it out!
February Line Up
What I have in store for the blog in February so far is:
- an interview with author Rosemary Clement-Moore of Prom Dates from Hell and Hell Week, whose newest release, Highway to Hell stocks up shelves March 10.
- Book Trailers: Take 2, a new blog furthering my research and opinion on this growing publicity concept.
And more than likely a lot of blogs about being a mother of another newborn, and of two daughters.
So, I will end my last blog entry until after my baby is born with a hearty farewell! I hope everyone has a great rest of the month, and if I happen to blog before the month is over, yay! But more than likely I will be tackling my whirlwind journey of motherhood with my husband and eldest daughter as we all settle in for a new beginning!
Oh, and Happy Inauguration Day!
