If you find Dariel Raye’s blog today you’ll see that I am her guest blogger, talking all about my favorite form of capture romance and my latest work: Elf Wizard’s Captive.
There’s also an excerpt from my work — Check it out and leave a comment!
I’m so excited to be a guest blogger, because I haven’t published yet. (It takes time, people.) About a year ago when I was sending out a big swath of queries I remember perseverating on the issue of a platform. I didn’t have one–no blog, and I didn’t understand Twitter at ALL. RT? # ??? FF, WW — these were obscure code words to me.
It seemed like a catch 22 situation — how could I have a platform if I wasn’t published yet? But how could I get published if I didn’t have a platform? You have no idea how much of a push I had to give myself to throw my hat into the ring and start engaging. All I could think about was how much would people want to connect with me if I wasn’t published?
But this is the true joy of romance. Everyone I’ve encountered is so friendly and interesting. I realize now that making connections with other folks–whether other writers or readers–has been the most rewarding aspect of trying to become a romance author.
I blow kisses to you all! :) I’m so glad that I’ve been able to meet and enjoy everyone on Facebook and Twitter and thank you each and every one of you that visits my little ‘ole blog. xoxo
