Crazily, whether we want it to or not, life goes on. Before last week, I had written and/or scheduled a number of guest posts on other people's blogs. I'm going to be grand and call it a blog tour (I'll let you know as soon as I come up with a title). As this has been my main promotional activity, I've had a surprisingly good time marketing myself. I'm happy to talk about my decisions and journey, but I also love being part of a larger conversation about what, in my opinion, makes a story work. If you've got a blog that focuses on Romance, Chick Lit and/or New Adult and you're looking for content, let's talk.
In the meantime, here's what I've put up so far since the pre-launch for The Smartest Girl in the Room. Some of it I've mentioned here, some of it I haven't.
Why I Chose to Self-Publish with Dennisse Lisseth/Exceptional Living
In the next two weeks, I'll have a few more posts coming up, including what makes a good villain, how Chick Lit and Romance can support each other in the same story and (yet more!) of my thoughts on the publishing business at-large and reviews. Thanks to all of the bloggers who have hosted me.
In other news, editing has already begun on the sequel by my long-suffering editor, and my designer is putting her thinking cap on for the second cover. I won't give too much away, but definitely the cover image is going to be influenced by an image from this book:
