Writing Angels

When you hang out in writing circles, you meet the nicest people. At least that's been my experience. Writers have beta read for me, helped me craft blurbs, alerted me to opportunities, and helped me with promotion, all out of the goodness of their hearts. 

Today, I'd like to say thank you the multi-talented Liz Madrid, my latest writing angel. She read my entry for SYTYCW15 and not only voted and left encouraging comments, she's done some wonderful things to try to gather enough votes to get As Long As We Both Shall Live into the next round. By the way, if you haven't yet voted, there's still time up until Oct. 14th. Just follow the link and click the star. 

Liz sent out creative messages on Wattpad and Twitter letting people know about the story. Then she created this wonderful cover for the book. And as if that wasn't enough, she made the amazing trailer below.

Liz's creativity isn't limited to social and visual media. I've just finished reading her story, Collateral, a fast-paced story of intrigue, family ties, and whirlwind romance. It's only on Wattpad until Oct. 15, so if you have a chance to read it before then, I highly recommend it. If not, grab a copy when it gets published. It's one of those books that will have you staying up past your bedtime for one more chapter, until it's three AM and you can finally rest knowing how it all turned out. 

Liz is just one of the many writing angels who've helped me along in my writing career. There are so many of you to thank, but I won't make a list today. You know who you are.

So, who are the angels in your writing life?

  1. What a sweet surprise to see this in my blogger dashboard! And you're very welcome! It was my pleasure to do whatever I could do get more exposure for your beautiful story. It touched me so much and it was the least I could do for a beautifully written story! And thank you for such nice words about Collateral! I can't wait to get it out there (after editing) and I'm so happy you enjoyed it!
