Killer Blog Tour Update

Moonday Mania

typically a blog on the craft of writing

My book is out  and I’m still excited! February 18th Little Red Riding Wolf went on sale, I had a fabulous Twitter party (thanks Brinda!) and I had a fabulous live party with actual (not virtual) cake and champagne.

Now comes the hard part.

What do you do once the book is out? I’ve been blogging like crazy on other people’s sites, and I’m running a contest (see details HERE) but soon it will all trickle down to just me, myself and I. Then what?

Well, it’s actually very easy. After the killer blog tour and the exciting book release, after the contest winds down and my engagements slow down. I get to do it all over again!

Wow! Do you think there will be more cake?Stock Photos - Cake

And how does this happen?

Because I’m still writing.

I’ve been writing all along and I am over halfway finished with Snow and the Seventh Wolf, the sequel to Little Red Riding Wolf. Not only that, but I have several long novels that at some point I will pronounce ‘ready’ and they too will be released to the world. Then I’ll be back on the roundabout headed to another blog tour and another contest.

Meanwhile I’m still focused on Little Red and the Killer blog tour.

How is your roundabout? Do you write while waiting for the submission results? Do you submit more than one project at a time? How do you keep everything going so that you don’t get a chance to breathe? Is that what you want?

Today you can find my blog, Twisting in the Wind or How to Twist a Fairy Tale on The Dames of Dialogue HERE.

And tomorrow find me at Erin Riordan’s Pagan Spirits blog HERE.

Leave a comment there, then skip on over to the Paranormal Freebies site HERE to register it with the Rafflecopter widget and get one more entry into my Little Red Riding Wolf Contest, ending soon.

And of course you can always comment here, then skip over to the Paranormal Freebies site!

Come into the woods with Little Red Riding Wolf*, a spicy paranormal romance novella available from Passion in Print Press. What if Little Red Riding Hood was a werewolf, and a sexy forest ranger wandered into her woods?

Fraternizing with humans is taboo, but when feisty werewolf Red runs into hunky new forest ranger Evan Brewster, she jumps on the opportunity to let loose her desires. Evan is stoked when he meets the petite red haired hottie, and combined with his new discovery of wolves in Colorado, thinks his career and life are made. Then Red pushes him away, her hostile brother threatens his life, and things begin to spiral out of control. Caught between her sexy lover and her pack can Red trust Evan with her secrets, or must she sacrifice her human lover and her heart?

  1. Hi Jessica. I’m right with you on the recent release and the whirlwind of touring. And I write right through it! Of course, there are only so many hours in a day and with work and family it’s difficult to find the time to write at the height of pandemonium. I’ve given myself permission to get the posts done and enjoy the moment without feeling like I’m not producing enough new material. I think it’s the best thing to do. Be as productive as possible, but don’t miss the fun stuff! Congratulations on Little Red Riding Wolf. I’m enjoying my copy. 🙂 Jordan

    • WOOT! Glad you’re enjoying it. Prioritizing has become paramount this month, and of course it’s when things are crunched that the emergencies come up. My original plan for this month was to have my novella finished and edited by the end of the month, but due to life I’m not finished yet. Bob would have said I needed an emergency plan. So, moving forward (hey, that’s like write if forward!) I will make sure I have backup plans. Even though I built in extra cushion I did not expect the amount of time needed for a change in plans. Oh well, life is for learning!

      Best of luck with your release and I can’t wait till April second when you’ll be my guest here to blog about your release!

  2. WONDERFUL and well-written article over at The Dames of Dialog, Jessica.

  3. Jessica, I find that through the editing process, I don’t do much writing. I’ve just finished a non-fiction characterization booklet, but that’s not the same as writing fiction. I plan to start another novella this week and I’m excited about it. It’s outlined and ready to go.
    You are a disciplined person!

    • I’m a procrastinator masquerading as a disciplined person.

      The truth is I just hate that moment when I realize I either have to turn in sub-standard work, or I have to stay up all night. (I really need my 9 hours!) I have anxiety so that pushes me to work harder. And truthfully I enjoy being busy and I love writing for a living. I very much want to make enough money to call it a living. Desperate, not disciplined! Are you self-publishing the non-fiction booklet? When does that come out?

  4. Just like your heroine, you seem to be running, well galloping, through the writing woods, Jessica. Way to go. I love to read your upbeat posts. Even when you’re swamped and a tad bit stressed, you’re still up. Love it!

  5. I love the title, Snow and the Seventh Wolf. I agree with Sharon that you seem very disciplined. 🙂 I’ll go check out your guest posts.
