For those of you who have read book two, Call to Arms: Nations Fall, there is an opportunity to help me generate some interest in the title and thusly increase the chances of Cedar Fort publishing then next book in the series. The best part of it is you have the chance to win some books at the same time.
New LDS Fiction is hosting their annual Summer Book Trek contest. You can hop on over to the website for full details, but the basic idea is that participants read any of the books on the list and help spread the word about the book you read. The first part is super easy—you read a book by an LDS author. Then you get points for posting reviews of the book and mentioning it on your social media, which is also pretty easy. This is a chance to help your favorite LDS author receive the exposure we need to continue writing the stories you love. Please, help us out.
Did I mention that I will be presenting two classes at the conference? If not, I have now. I will be teaching the popular Jumpstart Your Creative Juices where I will show how writers can use writing prompts to generate original story ideas. My second class is Keep ‘Em Reading which is new to my teaching list. The class discusses cliffhangers and how to keep your readers hooked throughout the entire book.
The Time Out for Writers website has been posting spotlights on the conference presenters. I am the spotlight this week and had the opportunity to answer a few questions about my writing journey. Check it out.
