MONDAY 11th MARCH 2013
Hello readers – it has been a while since I did a catch up post on what has actually been happening in the writing world of Missuswolf’s StoryLand. Since launching the Cuppa and a Catch Up Author Interview feature, I have had the pleasure of hosting a variety of wonderful writers who I have connected with this past year. I now have slots free from April so if any author/aspiring author would like to be featured, please leave a comment or get in touch via my Facebook Author Page or DM me on Twitter @Missuswolf.
So what’s happening with Miss Pooshoe?
Well, Miss Pooshoe may be having a change of title to ‘Little Miss Pooshoe’ (will refer to her as LMP) and I am at the half way stages of round one of editing. I work with a lovely lady, Kerry Richardson (read her blog here) who is a crime writer and is in the process of getting her first book edited. She has kindly put me in touch with her editor, Jenny, who contacted me back straight away and has given me loads of advice and we have arranged for her to edit my book woohoo!
Following the advice she has sent, I want to do a second round of edits on LMP before I let my baby loose to be interrogated to see if she copes with the pressure of having words/sentences/chapters(?) tortured out of her eeek! However, I know it is for the best and will do LMP good, it will be character building for her and make her stronger and more credible.
From next week, I hope to do some serious editing as Jenny has space in April to start looking at LMP (gulp!)
In the meantime, I have been learning a lot in the Social Media world. I am a proud of member of Melissa Foster’s Amazing Support Team #GoTeamPIF, a group I joined in September and it has been the best six months of my life. I have met some fantastic people who have helped me develop as a writer as well as through my social media marketing side. I have even managed to do a Book Trailer for The Ruby of Egypt (Plug Alert – here it is again for anyone who hasn’t had it pushed down their neck http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7hRxiyq2LQ) Something I never thought I would do. I now have a clear idea of how to do a book launch and have some exciting ideas in the pipeline for when LMP is eventually released (still hoping it is before I hit the big three zero which is fast approaching – I have ten months left).
It’s all go at the moment, so I am off now to schedule a few more blog posts, catch up on my social media and squeeze a bit of editing in – all before a nine hour nightshift. Now where is that coffee pot…..
