Happy February, writers! Join us for our monthly group therapy, hosted by Alex Cavanaugh.
Hop over to visit this month’s kick-butt co-hosts!
IWSG Question: What do you love about the genre you write in most often?
I write multiple genres so I’ll mention one aspect I love about each:
Romance — A spark of attraction that deepens into intimacy provides emotional depth in the story.
Suspense — Torturing my characters by imprisoning them or sicking the Mafia on their tail creates needed plot conflict and hopefully keeps readers turning the pages.
Sports — The pursuit of excellence, against mighty odds, reveals character.
Psychology — Throwing characters into therapy is an ideal mechanism for character development and healing.
I’m gearing up for the release of psychological thriller (with suspense and romance) TWIN SACRIFICE on 2-28-18.
Thank you to all who shared my cover reveal, including IWSGers Shannon from The Warrior Muse, Jacqui from Word Dreams, Miranda Burski, Cathrina Constantine, and Nicki Elson’s Not So Deep Thoughts. Your support is awesome.
Here’s my marketing plan:
* Goodreads giveaway
* Facebook release party
* Netgalley listing for 6 months
* Pre-order Blitz and Release Tour by Book Partners in Crime Productions
* I made the ebook available on Amazon for pre-order and I’ll do author takeovers at a few friends’ Facebook pages
If you have additional marketing ideas that have worked for you, please let me know. Happy writing!
