Author Blog Challenge – Writing Prompt #24

Haven’t heard too much from the “pre-published” participants on their thoughts about getting off the fence and writing and/or publishing their books. I sure hope that if you’ve taking the time, effort, and energy to participate in this Challenge that you do see your books through to completion!

Watch this space for an announcement about a new program I’ll be launching soon for women who’ve been thinking about writing that book … and are f-i-n-a-l-l-y ready to get it done.


The Day 21 prompt asked Challenge participants to discuss the best advice they’d ever received about book publishing, or best advice they might offer to a budding author. Click here for the Day 21 Recap.

Writing Prompt #23:

If a Hollywood agent were to come knocking on your door with an offer to turn your book into a movie and told you that you could call all the shots, who would you have direct and star in it? Write the first paragraph of Roger Ebert’s review of your film.

Describe your first book signing – real or imagined.

Let the blogging continue!
