Author Blog Challenge – Writing Prompt #27

This may have been the longest June of my life, but it’s also been one of the best. Tonight we publish the penultimate prompt of the Author Blog Challenge. One more after that, and we’re done. I’ve been delighted to get to know so  many of the Challenge participants and look forward to having many return for the Winter Author Blog Challenge!


The other night, an idea came up as a result of Lisa Cherry‘s comment about the English rain in June. We were bantering back and forth a bit on the Challenge Facebook group, and it occurred to me that perhaps we should think about creating a piece of collaborative fiction. It might be shortish or longish – that would depend in large part on how many participants, as well as the parameters we put in place. Soooo … respond in the COMMENTS section below if you’re interested in participating. Then we’ll find a way/time to toss some ideas around and see if we can’t get this thing off the ground.


The Day 24 prompt asked Challenge participants to discuss how they viewed their books as businesses. Click here for the Day 24 Recap.

Winner for Day 24 Tia Bach. She wins a gift from Sandi Tuttle, the opportunity to be interviewed on her BlogTalk Radio show, An Average Woman in a Superwoman World! Sandi covers topics from current events and how they affect us, to the Really Important things like what is the Most Popular nail polish color for your toes this season.  The show airs Mondays from 9:00 AM to 9:30 AM EST. However, it is archived as a podcast, so the scheduled air time can be adjusted to accommodate guests in other time zones. She can also extend the show time as long as two hours, for callers.

Thanks to Jo Michaels for the Day 25 donation! It is a Smashwords copy of Jo’s eBook, Yassa. This is actually a double giveaway, because there’s a code in the back of the book for a free copy of The Abigale Chronicles – Book One, as well. Those with young readers may appreciate that. View the book here:


Onward we go with the 27th writing prompt of the challenge…
