As you know, Freelance Writing Guide: What to Expect in Your First Year as a Freelance Writer is nearing publication (August 2012). As such, I have begun contemplating the book’s release, and what I can do to get the word out about my upcoming book. One of my ideas is having a blog tour in August or September. For those of you who have writing or reading blogs, I can offer a free ebook copy of Freelance Writing Guide in exchange for a book review on your blog. I am also available for blog interviews at that time (also for a free copy).
I recently (today, actually :) added more links to my blogroll (a list on the right side of the blog when you scroll down). The links are my favorite writing or reading blogs and websites (except for my health blog, which I added to the list because it’s my other blog). Check out the links on the blogroll, and if I haven’t added yours already, please comment on this post with a link to your writing/reading blog or website, and I’ll add it :)
Have a great week!

I want to make it official….I am writing two books right now and they will both be published in 2012. There is also a publication calendar on the right side of the page that shows a countdown for it.
The one I started first, which was in the beginning of January, is a reference book for freelance writers new to their career. It includes and explains everything I went through and more in my first year as a freelance writer, but the focus is on the reader. It’s educational, informative, and interesting. It covers everything that a freelance writer should expect in the first year of their career.
The second book, which I started at the end of January, is essentially, a compilation of all of my journal entries from age 9 to age 31. I am editing them as I type them. I am hoping that after editing again, after all the journal entries have been typed, the book will be a look into the inner workings and life adventures of a troubled, yet special, girl.
I have not named either book yet, but I will eventually, of course. So, there it is. My personal and professional goals for the year. I hope you will be here to cheer me on :)
