While we wait for the release of Reign of Magic let’s try something different! You probably have assumptions about me that may or may not be true: I wear glasses, I like tea more than coffee, how many books to I read in a month, etc.
Well now is your chance to bring them forward and ask me if your assumptions are true!
Post your assumptions in the comments of this blog post and I’ll pick a bunch of them to respond to in a Youtube video. As a special bonus you can also bring up your assumptions about Perfect Dog and I will respond to those on her behalf! 🙂
Here’s some example videos from others authors if you want some ideas:
- Alexa Donne – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWs9IVbaia0
- The Writing Gals – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YInteVW3xUk
Part of the reason I’m doing this is I have had to make the difficult choice to no longer respond to personal messages on FB or social media, as well as cut back on the time I spend replying to comments and email. (Though Rock Star Assistant Meg will keep handling my email, so you can still send us messages and she’ll share them with me!) I really enjoy connecting with you, and I really believe that these one-on-one connections with my loyal Champions have shaped me into the writer I am today. But this summer I’ve had to take a hard look at myself and I realized that all the responding is taking up too much of my energy and has severely cut into my writing time. And as it was books that brought us together, I need to keep focusing on them.
But I definitely don’t want to miss out on connecting with you, so I’m going to continue to do things like the Summer Read-Along and attempt some new experiments (like this assumptions video) so we can continue to personally interact and have fun together–and talk about books we love!
I am so blessed to have such an awesome Champion community! I seriously can’t thank you guys enough for what you’ve already done, and for hanging in there as we try this out. So, let’s get this party started!
