Let’s Get Organized


LGO Badge

Novel Clique, my writer’s group, determined 2012 the Year of the Agent. It went amazingly well, so we designated 2013 the Year of Social Media. We all plan to develop websites, continue to build our individual blogs, as well as the Novel Clique blog.

We’ll be busy, but maintaining a social media presence doesn’t have to be stressful. We sat down with our editorial calendar and brainstormed topics. Now, we have our group’s weekly blog posts planned for the year. It really took the stress out of figuring out what to write.

This morning alone, I changed topics three times. In an effort to find a balance between writing and the real world, we’re starting the Let’s Get Organized blog hop.

The rules are simple:

  1. Create a 4-6 week editorial calendar (here’s a cool template). If you post more than once a week, feel free to cut this time-frame in half. Unless, you’re up for the challenge.
  2. Publish the schedule to your blog. As with exercising, people tend to stick to goals when they’re held accountable.
  3. Tag three bloggers to join in the fun, then contact them to let them know about it.

The party starts February 21, 2013. In the meantime, mark your calendar, grab the badge for your blog to help spread the word and start brainstorming topics for your editorial calendar.

Halloween Anthology Coming Out Soon!


Cover art by Robyn Miley

My writer’s group, Novel Clique, and I have finally finished editing October Nightmares and Dreams for the Midwest Children’s Authors Guild. It features 14 children’s/YA short stories and 2 poems. My YA short story Blink, about the only female werewolf Huntress, will appear in the anthology.

Here’s a sneak peek at the back cover blurb:

Beware, Halloween is upon us. Soon, handkerchiefs may come to life and ghosts may appear to hinder or help. You may hear the eerie quiet of an orange grove and the rustling and moaning of a cornfield. Watch for stingy tricksters on the prowl and double-crossing siblings and friends who scatter at the first sign of trouble. Meet monsters that lurk on bedroom doors, hide inside closets, perch on porches, and linger in the mountains. If you’re brave enough, face your worst nightmare in a dark forest.

 Then, tell yourself it’s only Halloween. October Nightmares and Dreams presents a collection of stories and poems for children and young adults. Within these pages, you take a spooky journey through the stories and poems by authors of the Midwest Children’s Authors Guild.
