Platform Building

Yesterday I just participated in #pit2pub, a Twitter pitch fest where publishers hop on and favorite book pitches that they'd like to see. This is my third time pitching via Twitter and it's kind of fun and nerve wracking. I was thrilled to get some favorites and submitted a to a few more publishers. Now the wait begins again.

In addition to connecting with publishers and agents, the Twitter contests seem to be a good way to connect with other writers.

I found out about these contests through Heather Ayris Burnell's Facebook Group, Sub it Club. It's been an amazing resource. She recently wrote an article about platform building for writers. It was helpful to me as I'm learning how to do this while submitting my manuscript.


Here's the link to her article: The Push and Pull of Platform by Heather Ayris Burnell

Sequel to Sarah Starting Over

Some readers have mentioned wanting to read a sequel to Sarah Starting Over. Well, I'm happy to say that I have started writing a book #2 so that readers can see what happens with Greyson and Sarah one year later. Here's a tiny sneak peak. We will see the story through Greyson and Sarah's eyes in this story:

Greyson
My size thirteen wingtips kicked a couple of oval pebbles until they were sucked into a crack in the sidewalk. Other indentations in the walkway were overgrown with green things. The near constant rain made living in Siletz Bay like taking up residence on the surface of a Chia Pet. I’d been advised to wear more comfortable footwear by the prosthetic experts. But I had an image to maintain, leg or no leg.
The Canon camera I’d inherited from my mom after her passing hung around my neck most days. Clicking pics of married men sharing their beds with their assistants had become my bread and butter.
