The last week of writing challenges is finally here and I can't keep saying, "I can't believe how fast the time has passed!" Time always passes fast, especially once you get to my age, I guess. I don't really feel older. I just feel like I am me no matter what age I am...if that makes sense.
How'd I get off on this tangent? No matter. Let's get to those last few challenge responses instead.
I'm finishing up my feature on independent author Leah Atwood's books this week. If you missed the previous posts, you can find those by scrolling down the page or clicking here to read the first, here to read the second, and here to read last week's feature. I've done my best to read both her historical and contemporary romances to give you a sense of her range. Please do check out her work if you enjoy cozy, inspirational romance novels which leave you with a happy feeling at the end.
So let's get to that final review!
This month has been rough for our family. And with all the adjustments to the blog and being away from home more than usual, it might take me a while to get my posts settled into a routine. I hope you'll bear with me and enjoy what I'm able to share.
On with the challenge responses!
Thank you so much for joining me at the blog today! I'm happy to share the third installment of my feature on Leah Atwood, an excellent example of an indie author who delivers on her promise. What promise is that? Her goal is to leave the reader smiling when each book ends. So far, at least for me, she's held true to that promise. You'll see what I mean. Let's get to that review!
Am I really so busy? Time flies by so fast I can barely keep my days straight. I've gotten into the practice of writing most things down so I can try to remember them. That works...as long as I remember to check my list. XD
I'm still doing everything I can on both Surge and The Tale of Outh'n Durr. More on that in the last portion of today's post.
Ready to check out my challenge responses for the last week? Let's go!
This week, I've got a clean, historical romance to share with you from Leah Atwood. If this is your first visit this month, then you should also check out last week's book review. I'm featuring the books I've read from Leah's vast collection of writing. I hope you'll find one or two that strike your fancy.
Also, if you read all the way to the bottom, I've included some thoughts that have been rattling around in my head on the topic of free short stories and novellas designed to introduce readers to new authors. I hope it'll be helpful to indies everywhere.
I've updated some of the elements on the blog but I'd also like to change up the content a little. I feel like that's been lost in my pursuit of staying busy with my writing. I feel like I've been spinning my wheels and not making much progress.
I hope you'll look forward to the slow changes I'm going to start incorporating. I definitely want to publish Surge this year (2020), as well as a short story that will sort of set up the story for the secondary characters. Just because they're secondary characters doesn't mean I shouldn't fall in love with them, right? :) Well, in any case, I do enjoy writing their stories and can't wait to share them with you!
Until then, please enjoy these writing/bookish challenges I've decided to participate in this month.
Well, my promised indie author interview for the winter has fallen through. This is the last month when I really thought things would work out but life seems to get more hectic instead of easing up. So instead, I'll feature my indie author friend's books this month. I have five reviews or so to share with you. I hope you'll see one that sparks your interest and support another indie author who's just doing her thing.
