Gosh Darn It All to Heck

Well, last week I missed the #ROW80 link-up completely. I was hoping to have better news this week, but although I’m barely keeping up with my whirlwind blog tour (I’m on Jilly Boyd’s blog today!) I have few than 6,000 words in my #NaNoWriMo WIP.

I still have confidence I can make it up by the end of the month, even with Thanksgiving in there… hmmm… I foresee pawning my children off on the babysitter…

Last night I hosted #5MinuteFiction and it was fabulous! I was surprised to see that I had well over 100 views on the main post alone, with about 10 entries in the comments. My blog had four times the usual traffic yesterday. Another interesting statistic? Even though most of my recent posts end with me begging for votes in the America’s Next Author contest, only two people clicked through to that link from my blog! Two out of more than four hundred.

There’s a lesson in marketing in there…

But that won’t stop me from begging some more! This week I’m doing my big push for the contest. Please, pretty please with hot fudge on top, click the picture then click VOTE! It does not require a log-in, although you do have the choice to read and/or download my story, and you can select an adjective from the drop-down list to describe my story. Although in past weeks it looks like people could only vote once per author during the ENTIRE contest, it looks like they have changed it now and reset the votes. That means, even if you voted for me before, you can vote for me fresh again this week!

Thank you!

  1. You sound busy, AmyBeth. I will have to click through to vote for you. 🙂 I think your attitude toward NaNo (not panicking) is exemplary. Row on, or as Cate Russell-Cole said, keep swimming! I hope you have a great rest of the week.
