Media Madness for Writers!

I recently signed a publishing contract for Stone Man, a middle-reader’s historical novel. This was a NaNoWriMo manuscript, the only one I ever attempted as I am a slow typist. (write a novel in 1 month) I have included a link to their website. This is the biggest one, but a little Googling will find others.

Also unique for this novel, I found my publisher through a Twitter Pitch. Once a or so a year, different organizations bring agents and editors together. If they LIKE your pitch, you are invited to submit to them. There are many. I have included a few that I am familiar with. (do background checks-don’t assume anything)

I signed a publishing contract with Dancing Lemur Press for my middle-readers (ages 8 to 12) historical novel, Stone Man: Trail of Tears. It will be released in October 2019 in paperback and eBook formats.

After Twelve-year-old Tsatsi and his sister separate from their family during the Cherokee Trail of Tears, a giant Tsatsi thinks is Stone Man drags her to his lair. Tsatsi fights him, dodges renegades, and hides from soldiers as he and his sister try to reunite with their family in the Smoky Mountains.

Though Dancing Lemur Press welcomes bookstore and book signing sales, their focus is in school and library sales.

Recently I posted about my latest book contract. This book is a product of social media. I started it for NaNoWriMo 2011 and finished it in December. This is my only NaNoWriMo manuscript. Since I type slowly, I doubt if I do another one.

This year I started participating in Twitter Pitches. (if you are new to them, Google them) There are many of them put on by various groups. (to my knowledge, all are free) The one that brought my contract was #IWSGpit. This is Insecure Writers Support Group—I am not a member, know little about them.
