Since the book released I've been spending most of my time on marketing and promotion. In addition to my regular social networking promotion, I did three author takeovers and one interview in some of the Facebook reader groups and a fourteen-stop blog tour.
Beverly Jenkins, the queen of African-American historical romance and one of my favorite authors, even did an unexpected promo for me on Facebook, which put a stupid grin on my face for days.
Now it's time to get back to writing. I started writing the first chapter of A Song For You, Book Two in The Lake Series this week and also created a first draft of the story photo collage. This is Breelyn's story. She is the best friend of Tangela, the female protagonist in Born To Be Wild, and from the comments I've read so far, readers seem to really like her.
Naturally, I'll be adding more pictures as the secondary characters show up. I already know who a couple of them are, but I need to sit down and work on an outline. All I have at this point are random story notes. I'm 2,000 words into the story, but since I'm not a pantser, I need a more structured guideline from which to work.
I'll keep you posted on how it's going. 😊
