I'm over at Sweet'n'Sexy Divas today talking about all the special events I have going on this month. Stop by to get the 411 on everything that I've got cooking for March.
I'm over at Sweet'n'Sexy divas today talking about refilling your creative well.
Last year I had a fantastic year writing wise, but it also left my creative well really dry. It has taken me a while but I think I finally discovered what the problem was.
Stop by find out how I'm refilling my creative well and how I discovered exactly what was missing.
Its my day to blog over at Sweet'n'Sexy divas today, and today I'm talking about all the details you can learn about me from my writing. Some of them are intentional, but most aren't. They are just the little silvers of me that get imprinted in each book without me even realizing it. The parts of me that show up in my characters relationships, in each dinner table, in all my heroines.
Stop on by to see what you can learn about me just by reading my writing. Hopefully a few of them will be a surprise.
Today I'm over at Sweet'n'Sexy Divas talking about critique partners. A good critique partner is hard to find, and it definitely takes a lot of work to get one that works well with your needs and your writing, but a good one is worth your weight in gold (especially when you are just starting out).
I list the traits most needed in a critique partner, at least for me. Stop by and let me know what you look for in a critique partner and how best to find a good one (that has always been my biggest issue). I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Its my day over at Sweet'n'Sexy Divas today and I'm blogging about making small steps towards your goal.
This year has been a bit slower than I would like, and as a goal oriented person that's hard for me. But I'm working on appreciating the small steps. Stop by and offer me a little encouragement for my new self care progress.
This year I had the pleasure to attend the RWA national convention and I heard Suzanne Brockmann's amazing speech about inclusion in romance first hand. Listening to her words got me to thinking about how I could be more inclusive in my own work, but it also got me thinking about what I'm not willing to write about.
I'm over at Sweet'n'Sexy diva's today talking about what I absolutely will never write about. These are things that I just can't stomach every writing into my books, for the hero, the heroine or the villain. Stop by and let me know if you agree. Are there some things that shouldn't be written about in romance? And what are they?
Since my brain is focused on getting ready for this year's RWA conference, I decided to write a blog about what I learned from my last conference experience that I'm applying to going to this years conference. Along with some helpful hints about how to get the most out of your conference experience.
Stop by and let me know if you have any tips you've learned from going to conferences or similar events.
For the last few months I've been having trouble writing. The words just haven't been coming as easily as they normally do. But I think I might have discovered a way to work through these issues.
Read my new blog on Sweet'n'Sexy Divas to see how settling my intention has helped me work through some of my writers block.
Reviews are life blood to an author. Not only do they factor into rankings on sites like Amazon and Barnes and Noble, but they also keep us going. They keep us writing and improving. Even the not so nice ones can empower us to do better (sometimes just to spite the reviewer, I won't lie). But my books are a little lacking on reviews, so I'm running a contest to encourage some of those life blood enriching reviews out of the wood work.
Starting now through...whenever the reviews stop coming in...for every review you give, you can be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to amazon.com.
Here's how it works-
If you have read one of my books, go to any book reviewing site of your choice (bn.com, amazon.com, bookstrand.com, bookbub.com, goodreads.com, and any others you can think of) and write an honest review. (I'm only asking for honest reviews. If you didn't like a book that's fine. Let me know. That's the best way for me to improve. You never know, the reason you didn't like the book might be the reason another reader would love it.)
The review must include a written review, but it can be as simple as 'liked the book', 'too much sex', 'flat characters', etc...Send me link to the review with your user name and you'll be entered to win the gift certificate. Simple as that. You can post the same review on as many sites as you'd like, each link will count as its own separate entry. Once I receive 25 links, I'll pull one winner from the list to receive the gift certificate. Once a link has been won it will be removed from eligibility but all the other links will remain eligible until the end of the contest. If the link is a verified purchase, I'll include something a little extra with the delivery.
Never read one of my books before, but you want to participate? You still can. I currently have two books available for free. Read one of those, review it and you can enter to win.
How do you send me the link-
There are multiple ways you can send the link to me. You can email me at willa dot c dot Edwards at gmail dot com. You send me a message through the contact me link on my website. You can post your link to the facebook message on my page about this contest. Or you can comment on this blog post (only comments with email addresses included will be counted. I need to have a way to contact you for you to win).
Comment or email me with any questions. Happy reviewing!
I'm over at Sweet'n'Sexy Divas today talking about titles. How important they are, and how I decide what title to choose for my stories. Stop on by and let me know what you think. What titles do you find appealing? What titles draw you in and what ones steer you away?
