Wednesday's Writing Update

It's Wednesday, so it's time for another writing update.

On the blog this week, I interviewed Lisa Rusczyk about her new book Chasing the Dark. You can check out that interview here, which has links to the review I did.

If you haven't already, don't forget to read "Elevator" here.

On Raven and the Writing Desk, we're doing our three-part story this week. Drop by to read "Maize Maze" here. I wrote part one, Lisa did part two, and Aubrie is writing part three.
Also, on Raven and the Writing Desk, in honor of Halloween and all things horror, I'm giving away my ebook Once Upon a December Nightmare. Drop by the blog here and find out how you can win a copy.

I reviewed J.A. Konrath's SHAKEN yesterday on my book reviews blog. It is a wonderful thriller/mystery novel. You can read that review here.

Also, don't forget it is the last week Bloody Carnival is on sale as well as a few other Pill Hill Press books. Drop by their website and see what they have to offer here.

As far as writing is concerned, I've written three flash fiction pieces this week for November's flash fiction. They all involve earlier scenes in the main characters' lives in this year's NaNoWriMo novel Sarah's Nightmare. I'll speak more about it tomorrow, though.

I only have four short stories out in submission world. I should hear about two of them within the next week. Once NaNoWriMo is done, I'll see what I can send out where again.

Also, I've been really into Twitter the past couple weeks. I got a twitter account a while back (sometime last year), and I stopped doing much with it. Well, I started up again, and I now have 64 followers. I've added 40 followers within a couple week's time. Amazing! You can follow me on twitter at bookworm0753. I'm even thinking after NaNoWriMo is over to begin writting 140-character stories for Twitter. So far, all I can come up with is character's dying. *laughs* Morbid, I know. I'll think of something. It should be interesting. It's hard enough to come up with flash fiction sometimes, imagine a few word story. I'm willing to give it a try.
I've picked up a few new followers (up to 36!) and I wanted to welcome new and old followers, as well as those that remain anonymous. I love you, guys!

And, I think that is all for the previous week in writing. I'll see you tomorrow for my NaNoWriMo Preparation Update.
