There were a lot of curious people wanting to know what was the truth and which were the lies in the Jennifer Laughran BBCHAT. Today is the day that your curious minds are satiated. Follower Jess Lawson was the lucky winner who guessed the Jennifer did NOT go to boarding school in Switzerland - which means everything else is true. Yes, she really is that interesting.
For her efforts, Jess won a copy of MAGIC UNDER GLASS by Jaclyn Dolamore, one of Jennifer's clients. Jackie's Successful Author Talk (SAT) interview can be found here, and my review of MAGIC UNDER GLASS is here. And while we talking about Jackie - I won an embellished copy of MAGIC, and an ARC of her newest title BETWEEN THE SEA AND SKY. So, expect another review soon. I usually refrain from fan girl behavior, but this lady can write.
And guess what else is going on in the world? It's almost July, and if you recall this post, you know what that means - WoCoMoMo, baby! July is Word Count Motivational Month here on WriterWriter. What the hell does that mean? It means that you'll be competing with me to see if you can write more than me within that month. Starting July 1, email me to let me know you'd like to be included in the word fest. I'll post weekly totals here on the blog, and I also log my daily accomplishments in the Writing Odometer group over at Agent Query. At the end of the week I'll open up the floor for the participants to email me their word count for the week and I'll compare our stats in a end-week post. If you want to play, but don't want your stats published that's fine, you can email me and say, "I was lazy this week, but don't tell anybody." Be nice and don't lie, it's kind of the honor system, but backed by the fact that my people are always watching you. If you do write more than me, congrats, you win something. If more than one person writes more then me, the person with the highest word count turnout for the month wins something.
And finally, I've got some great new SAT participants lined up. So I'm curious - I've been running the SAT since March, and mostly I ask questions that I want to know the answer to. But what about you guys? What do you want to ask agented, published authors about their journey or process? Respond in the comments and your questions may get incorporated into the SAT.
