YOU Decide What Genre Story I Should #Write For #Standup2cancer #Author #Charity Project- Please Vote!

Evening guys,

So a few days ago I told you all about the charity writing project I’m participating in with my publisher, to help raise some money. Myself and a few other authors will write a short story to publish together in one book. The book will be on sale from February 2017, all proceeds from the book sales go to the charity Standup2cancer, we (authors) will not see a penny of it. You can read more about what I’m doing and the project   here  if you missed my blog on this.

 Today, I’d like to invite you  help or  decide for me what genre story  I should  write?  I thought this may be fun and also I can’t decide! But today I  got my deadline, so I better get cracking.With your vote, tell me should I write a romance or thriller genre short story to include for publication in February 2017? Our stories can only be 15k max in words, so it’s pretty short. Place a quick vote in below. This vote will be open until the 30th September only.

Thanks in advance.

Have a good weekend

Can You Help Save A Life? #amwriting #charity

Over the weekend I did a writing promideapt ” The Internet is Full of Rants”,  in this post I mentioned a charitable cause that’s close to my heart here in the UK, it’s called Shelter. 

Today, my publisher informed it’s authors about a cause they are supporting called StandUp2Cancer,  I’ve heard of this we also have the campaign here in the UK. We were asked if we’d like to help raise money for the cause, by writing a short story to include in a book.  All proceeds from the sales will go to cancer research. I’m taking part and will submit a short story to help raise money. The stories will be published February 2017.

I’d like to reach out to you all and let you know that if you find this cause close to your heart, or you’re just feeling in a good mood you too can help save a life by donating directly to StandUp2Cancer. Details are on the link below.No matter how small the donation, I’m sure it will help someone or something.

Once the book is available to buy (not until February) I’ll let you all know, if you can’t help out now maybe in February you’ll fancy reading a number of wonderful short shorties from myself and some other great authors, and if so, you can purchase the book and help out that way.

 Here you can find out more for now on this cause www.standup2cancer.org

 

 

 

Day 13: Romance Novels in Color- Feature

Hi guys!

 Just thought I’d share with you the news that A stranger in France will not only feature in Coffee Time and Romance    and All Romance Reads in September and October but also  in Romance Novels in Color. I’m extremely proud for A Stranger in France to be featured on the front of this website, and in their subscriber’s news letter.  The funny thing is I just looked on line and my book cover is already there! This was not meant to go live until the 21st…. someone has made a whoopsy over there! But still a little early promotion I guess never hurt anybody. I wonder if they will notice and take it down??

If you’re a lover of romance (with a multicultural line up), you should check out Romance Novels in Color on-line, I’m about to  head over see what I fancy reading.

Hope you had a great day!

Day #18: The Writing To Do List- What’s on Yours?

idea

Morning !

A cloudy one here in London today,I hope the sun hasn’t decided that it’s time to hide now that we’ve reached September. We’re only 2 days in.

Well for day #18 of the count down to ”the big day”  I have quite a to do list, and really glad I don’t return to work until Tuesday. I need to narrow down a from a long list of topics what to write an article on, for  3 guest blog appearances I’ll do as part of my book tour from the 20th September. The list of topics is rather long,  hard to decide but  it’s interesting. 

I also have the next 8 hours free to write my heart out and polish up what I’ve wrote for my romance-thriller book I’ve started and yet to complete. In terms of word count I’m only about 16,000 words in, so not much work produced, but I have my idea mapped out on paper. I hope today is a much more productive day than the last 2 days I’ve been off work and I’ve at down to write. I’ve been messing around behind the screen you see- well that’s not true I’ve been reading blogs and reading a really great romance novel which I’ll do a review for for another romance author. Last night I was up until 1:00 am reading, I’m enjoying the story line so far.

Also, on my list to do is to catch up on my letter writing, I’ve got a pile of unopened snail mail from France, Austria and the UK to reduce! My snail mail pals probably think I’ve dropped of the face of the earth. I hope they’ll understand.

Oh and today’s WordPress writing prompt, I’ll have a crack at when that is posted around lunch time.

This list is long enough as it is, I better get started before I remember something else I need to do .

 What’s on your to do list for  day or weekend writing wise? Let me know what you’re up to? Have a productive writing day bloggers!
