This is it. Put your hands together and say a little prayer for me. One, I am doing a three-day giveaway of La Bruja del Barrio Loco, which starts on Saturday, and runs through Monday. If you download a free copy, or bought one, give it a positive, short review. I'll even take simple stars. Half of the profits for the year of all sales are going to my union chapter's strike or hardship fund.
Two, this weekend, we are going out of town somewhere, and I am going to finish my novel, The Harvest. That only seems appropriate since I love unions and all workers. My writing energy is amped, and I have the rest of the chapters mapped out, more or less. Can't be too restrictive with this creative process. But, it's going to happen!
I also want to thank everyone who helped me beta test my first giveaway on short notice. Folks did download my book, and I hope more do so this weekend. Just for laughs, my favorite Facebook comment came from a friend who is business savvy, and posted, "Oh no! The prophets!" The prophets are just fine, brother, just fine.
Finally, my printed markers should arrive today. This collateral is also a marketing experiment, to get more traffic and reviews. I ordered 50 because I need to start budgeting better, but I am going to test these out because I will be meeting people and giving away markers to readers. Pray for that too. I think markers are better than business cards. We will see.
I am sending you all good writing vibes!
Take more writing risks and get your WIPs done! #Resist!
