Today’s question - What are your favorite and least favorite questions people ask you about your writing?

Well, shame on me because I can't think of anything right now. After 2 months of holidays and battling sickness from my family, my brain isn't cooperating. Also, I've set aside my writing-to-public relations for such a long time that I've fallen off the grid. I need to crank these old wheels again because I'm coming out of hiding!

Guess what? I'm one of the winners for the IWSG Anthology contest. Squeeeeeee! 



Here is the list--congratulations, guys!

Oddly Suited by LG Keltner
Sea of Sorrows by AV Brown
Behind the Catcher’s Mask by Jennifer Lane
A Diver’s Ball by Angela Brown
Fearless Heart by Deborah Solice

What methods do you recommend I use to making a comeback into the author world?

    1. Thank you! It's hard to see that I lost my fanbase after Darkspell--I've had some things come up that took me away from the publishing world. Now to rebuild my empire. Thanks for the advice!

  6. Woo hoo! Congratulations on making the anthology, Elizabeth. I look forward to reading your story. What is it about? I agree with Madeline that getting back into the publishing game will motivate your marketing. I use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and bloghop giveaways, but I've hardly mastered the marketing game.

    1. Sounds like you're doing well with the marketing thing to me! I was pretty good at it but my brain is all dried out right now. Haha!

      My story is about a girl who falls into a grandfather clock when it strikes 13 when she is summoned by a clockbound prince to free him. One of the hardest things for me when writing a short story is that I know there can be so much more to it as I'm used to writing full-length novels!
