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
