Guess Who’s On Board!

christa-and-gina

I know my blog has sucked lately. You’re all very nice about it, but it’s true. And the third part of SICK is two months past my planned publication date. No writing, no revising, no blogging. The reason why I’m so busy is problem I’m very blessed to have. I have more work than I can handle, and more and more comes my way everyday!

Five years ago I started freelancing in web design and social media marketing. What began as a part time gig for extra Christmas money has now developed into a full-grown business. I am bursting at the seams and it’s time to get some help, so I’m thrilled to announce that my sister Gina has begun training as my first digital marketing protege!

I’m so grateful to have her help and I know everyone will love working with her. 2016 is galloping away and I have so many great plans for the future. I’m so glad I have someone on my team, especially my sister. Next in line for training is my baby sister, Tia. Then we’ll have the sister trifecta. Look out!

Not only am I training my sisters how to work and thrive in this creative and free lifestyle, I’m going to teach anyone who wants to learn. The demand for content management and social media marketing is exploding, and I’m developing a digital marketing course that covers all facets in an easily digestible format. You can learn more about the course and sign up for an invitation to the FREE beta-version here.

I’m also creating a course specifically for authors that includes my hacks and secrets to managing effective social media strategy without it consuming your writing time. You can get early access to that by signing up for Digital Marketing Mastery for Authors.

Last but not least, SICK Part III will be going out to my beta-reading crew  next month (I hope) and then to my wonderful editor, Candace at Change it Up Editing. I even have plans to unearth my drafts of The Sculptor Series for release, and I’m itching to start blogging regularly again.

Thanks so much for staying subscribed to this blog through the thick and thin. There’s lots to come next year, so stay tuned! XOXOXO

 

 

3 Independent Authors You Must Read Now

Joseph Sale: Graphic-Horror Writer

Hello everyone,

We live in a world of big brands, big names and celebrities, as is so wryly satirised in Ben Elton’s most recent comedy gold: Upstart Crow. In some ways, we have always had this culture. The gladiators of ancient Rome were much like the Olympic athletes we worship today. The Forum philosophers were no different to the TV personalities we watch now, offering advice on everything from sex to home-improvement.

But, the difference between our world and the ancient one (even going back only a hundred years or so) is saturation. There are simply so many more people than there used to be.

How then, can we find the gold, when everyone has a blog, everyone has a self-published book or song or film, and everyone is crying out to have their voices heard? It’s not easy, but one way is through simple recommendation. Who is being recommended and who…

I stopped by Chat About Books with Kerry Parsons and answered a few questions about my writing process, naming characters, and other ramblings. Please check it out and subscribe to Chat About Books. If you’re an author or publisher who would like her to review a book or feature you on Chat About Books, I’ll leave all her links at the bottom of this post.

My Author Interview at @JeriWB’s Word Bank

Hello friends and readers. I’m back from my trip. It was a sad homecoming because my feathered child, Querido the parrot, died before I returned from Florida. I’ll write more about her later this week. The pain is still too fresh.

In the meantime, pop on over to Jeri WB’s blog today to read an interview I did with her about reading, writing, and marketing.

This is only my second interview ever (this was my first), and I still feel very awkward when talking about myself and my work. I’d love to know what you think, and if you have any interview tips for me.

#HappyThanksgiving #BRB!

Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t been posting and responding to comments lately. I have been traveling with the rest of the Wojo’s. We went to the Bahamas and I’ll be spending turkey day with the family in Florida. I’ll be back to my normal shenanigans next week. I’m very anxious to get back to writing my sequel to SICK. I also found out I have a sick parrot at home. I’m so worried about her and powerless to help from here. If anyone knows anything about birds, please leave me a message in the comment section. I suspect it’s a Giardia infection, but local vets don’t treat birds in Boquete. I’m desperate!

Other than that, I’m very grateful to be with my loved ones. I just want to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. I hope you eat and drink too much. Cheers! See you all next week 10 pounds heavier 😀
