Ready For A New Week?

Wow! It's been a busy and exhausting week! I have bruised my fingers. Just kidding! But I have been busy. There's so much going on this month and so much to prepare for: contest. workshops, pitches, and blog hops!

So exciting!!

I plan to get back to my 200 follower celebration. So be on the look out for more Reader appreciation awards (a.k.a. You've Been Inked!)

First, my entry will posted over at Deana Barnhart and GUTGAA Small Press Contest! I'll let you know what my entry number is as soon as I find out!

Oh, and I am preparing for my first NaNoWriMo, which is coming up SUPER FAST!

This week starts Curiosity Quills Haunted Writing, hosted by Sharon Bayliss. By the way, Sharon has an amazing new blog template!Now, this contest is going to be unique in that Pros, known as Super Villains, will be choosing new aspiring authors to mentor and help prepare a submission package for editors. It's like having a personal writing coach!

And don't worry! I plan to keep everyone informed about all the wonderful information I am learning about crafting a great submission package, so don't miss a day of posting! I plan to jam pack this week with the best of the best!

Also, the Super Villains will be picking teams and the teams will work together, coaching and encouraging each other to be the best!

Keep your eye out for my posting that will include the linky, writing logo, and information for the first post.

I can't wait to find out who will be on my team! It's going to be a GREAT month!

What about you? Do you have plans for this month? Writing anything new?

  2. Wow good luck with all those contests, Ink!!!

  3. Good heavens you are busy. Good luck with it all.

    I intend to have a quiet month because next month I release my second ebook and it is already shaping up to be manic!

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Operation Agent Ink

UPDATE: PLEASE FILL OUT THIS QUESTIONNAIRE AFTER YOU SIGN UP. Have you ever wondered what agents were dying to find in their inbox/slush pile? There have been many times I entered a contest and not even received a comment, not even from one of the agents. Or maybe the agent was kind enough to leave a comment that simply said, "Sorry, this just isn't what I'm looking for, but I love the premise and your voice." I always walk away feeling unsatisfied. If I had known exactly what the agent wanted beyond, "YA" or "Fantasy" I might not have even entered a contest I knew I wouldn't win! Even more, I wasted a very busy agents time! Well, your time of guessing is up! OPERATION AGENT INK to the rescue! That's right! This workshop will help aspiring authors get on the list of an agent's WISH LIST! When the workshop is over, your manuscript will be ready to view by a group of AMAZING agents who are dying to see what you've wri

EVER Blog Hop!!!!!

I joined a blog hop flash writing contest with/for Jessa Russo. It's in honor of her first EVER book release. I met Jessa during the Curiosity Quills Blog hop. I have never read a ghost story, but after reading Jessa's query and first few pages and then learning more about her ghost Frankie, I was so inspired, I fell in love -with Frankie. I was so inspired, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and write a story I had never written before and never thought I would write. Or even want to write. But I did, and I did. My piece for the contest is a small part of my bigger manuscript I wrote. I had to modify and change a few things so the story would make sense, but I think it works. At least, I hope it does:) How to vote: Comment at the end of the end of this post. You must have the word "VOTE" in your comment for it to be considered valid. VOTING IS OPEN UNTIL SEPTEMBER 30TH!!!! Ready? Well, lets go! --> The Man With the Black Hood knocked
