I wanted to do NaNoWriMo this year.
I was so pumped after reading a few posts about people getting ready for NaNoWriMo 2015 that I started to layout my style sheet for the new story idea that popped up just in time for the challenge, but here’s the cold hard truth…
I can’t do NaNoWriMo this year.
I can’t tell you how many times readers have told me they don’t have a Kindle.com address. I’m here to tell you now:
If you read on the Kindle app, you have a Kindle.com address.
Here are directions to help you find your kindle.com address on Amazon and show you how to receive an e-book directly onto your Kindle reading device, or any other device with the Kindle app. There is one exception, and you can scroll to the bottom to see what that is. Okay! Let’s get to it, shall we?
First off, you need to log in to your Amazon account where you buy all your books. I’m in Canada, so I typed “Amazon.ca” in the address bar of Internet Explorer and then logged in on Amazon as usual.
In the upper right corner, point your cursor over the spot where mine reads, “Hello Christa. Your Account” and select “Manage Your Content and Devices“.
My publisher is looking for book bloggers to post the cover reveal, review an ARC of my book, get involved in a release day blitz and/or join its blog tour. One lucky blogger, for each event, will win a paperback of Finding Destiny, book one in the Destiny Series.
Beautifully Broken is a stand-alone, new adult romance, so there is no requirement to have read the first in the series in order to participate. Please sign up below. It would mean the world to me! ❤
Kill your competition with Black Widow Publishing.
I have a fabulous opportunity for one of my fans. How would you like to have your name as a character in my next book? Read on for more info!
Here I am, plugging away at my second round of edits on Beautifully Broken, book 2 in the Destiny Series, only to find that there remains a character that was not given a name. She appears on at least three occasions in the story, but apparently wasn’t important enough at the time for me to stop and do the honours of naming her.
I don’t know why I’ve been struggling with picking a name for this girl, but it’s really irking me and I need a resolution, like yesterday. I’m hoping to turn this into a bit of a game that can be fun and mutually rewarding. Rather than me playing with baby names from a list, waiting for the right one to click, I thought I’d open it up to my following.
For starters, the character is a girl, but I’m open to a sex-change if need be! This girl is currently known as “the floozy cousin”. If that title offends you, then A. There’s no need to continue reading this post; and B. I can’t believe you’re still following me!! 😉
So, this girl (<-see, isn’t that annoying??) is one of Destiny’s single cousins who attends her wedding. Yes, Destiny is getting married! “The cousin” is a good looking girl who tags onto the studly hero of the story, Matthew Knight, but he has his eyes set on someone else, Felicia, the heroine of course! “The cousin” really bothers Felicia because, well, she’s hanging off of Matt like a cheap air freshener when Felicia wishes she were the one doing that. (more…)
I’m excited to tell you about the author events I have coming up real soon, one as soon as this Thursday! I hope you’ll take a look. I’ve updated my Events page just for you. 😉
Here are the two visits happening over the next couple of weeks. If you’re from the area, I hope you’ll join me! Come to learn a little about self-publishing, chat with other readers and writers and/or to pick up an autographed copy of one of my books! Hope to see you there!
