A-Z Eve...

This Dalek picture is completely irrelevant to this post
This will be my third year doing the A-Z Challenge, and I really love doing it. Every year, I get to discover NEW blogs. For me, that's my favorite part - visiting everyone and finding new sites to visit. I'm excited, but a little stressed. I didn't have the time to write all my posts like I did last year, so this will be as chaotic as the first year I did this back in 2012.

I look forward to sharing a bunch of "One Hit Wonders" with you!

Although I didn't do a blog tour in support of my debut novel, Dragonfly Warrior, I did my best to "get out there" and reach out to people. It's been a busy, but satisfying month. Here's what happened:

1) I participated in my very first author event
2) Dragonfly Warrior went on sale for 99 cents - which ends TODAY, by the way. The price goes back up to $2.99 tomorrow. So download a copy!
3) I participated in two big steampunk events: Steampunk Hands Around the World and Steampunk With Heart
4) I finished my official author page
5) Just about wrapped up my YA horror/paranormal novel with the lovely Miranda Hardy
6) Was a guest on Under the Tikki Hut, The Writing Nut, and Beyond Victoriana
7) I was knighted by David King

Phew. And now it's time for A-Z.

Maybe I should take a blog vacation in May!

See you all tomorrow!

Even without a tour, you did a lot!
One hit wonders will be fun. You pick some great themes.
I already have a vacation scheduled for May. I think we'll all need a break at that point.

You did a lot of little things and those all add up, Jay!

It sounds like you did a good chunk of marketing!

It's my third year doing A-Z, too. I'm almost ready…. :)

Alex Hurst said...

Good luck! It's down to the final three hours over here in Tokyo/Seoul. Excited for the event to begin!

Maybe the A to Z will help you to refocus by NOT focusing on your book for this month. You can make new friends by drawing them in with one of your many other passions (music) and it will revitalize you in all the other aspects of your life!!!

Happy to knight you, Jay! Glad to know you're in the challenge too. This is my first year. Decided to join in at the last minute. Nice badge, btw! :)

Got my copy last week after I FINALLY got a Amazon gift card. Thanks for the kindle special. See you in A-Z.
