I'm Joining the Campaign!

I don't do a lot of blogfests and other organized blogging events because I know I'll end up not having enough time to write on my book, and getting stressed out with my attempts to juggle it all. But I've been wanting to try Rachael Harrie's networking campaign for a while, because you get to join by genre, and so you end up with a more manageable group of writers to follow that write the same sort of thing you do.

So, after several times of missing the deadlines to join, I finally got wind of the 4th Platform Building Campaign, and I've signed up in the Fantasy and Urban Fantasy groups. If you want to expand your network, check it out on Rachael's blog here. The deadline's not until the 15th, so you've got a couple days.


There are a couple of organized events for this crusade, but I want to clarify that this does not mean I'll be skipping regular posts, or that I won't be popping over to comment with the folks I usually do. So, check it out if you're interested and join up if you want. And have a great beginning of the week!

P.S. I am doing a Valentine's blogfest on Tuesday. So, kind of a busy week for me. It'll have an excerpt from Noir, the first I've posted online. You know, just to tease you a bit ;)

  1. I participated last year, but with the Challenge and my upcoming book, it would've been too much. And yes, lots of blogfests! Origins is tomorrow.

  8. Hi, Alexia. Yeah, I've been ignoring several blogfests lately because it is just too much right now. I'm still trying to get a workable routine that I can meet, with regard to writing, networking, promotion. The edits on my second book should be dropping into my e-mail inbox any moment now. On top of that, I'm working on a third book.
    If my wife would only allow me to quit my dreaded 11-hour day job!?! Apparently, I spend too much money on iTunes and wine. *snaps fingers in disgust*
