The year is half over and I’m pretty offended about it if we’re perfectly honest. The humidity is settling in and the heat is rising and it makes it pretty hard to get things done here in a country with no home A/C. But I’ve persevered.
The recovery from April has been a little slower on the visible side of things, but rest assured, my absence here has been supplanted by a surge of activity with my writing group, Itchen to Write, and really working hard on my main projects.
We’ve gotten off track with book reviews and social media scheduling reviews, but I can safely say the ship’s been righted and there are no less than four book reviews forthcoming this month, as well as resuming the social media scheduling series with a look at Later.
As always, please note that my buy links in my reviews are Amazon Associate links, so if you make a purchase I may get a little kickback from that. It doesn’t increase your prices, just helps to support the site.
IT’S PITCH SEASON YOU GUYS.
This month, I’ve got three opportunities to cram my pitch down as many agents’ throats as possible. I’m going to the Winchester Writers’ Festival on 16 June, as well as the TLC Writers’ Day on 23 June in London. These are both amazing events I’m really looking forward to, and as of this writing tickets are still available for both so make sure you get in on that action.
Additionally, #PitMad is coming up on 7 June, so you can keep a look out for my tweets as I try and catch the eye of a lovely agent. Wish me the best of luck!
I’m also teaching another poetry introduction towards the latter half of the month, so things are really heating up around here, and for once I don’t mean the muggy weather.
