Day 5 | End of The Week Wrap Up

It's already Friday, which means that today's the last day of the AWGF blog tour. WHAT?! Well, that week went fast! To celebrate the release, I've been drinking lots of coffee. But I would drink lots of coffee even if I wasn't celebrating a book release ...

Anyway, to wrap up the blog tour Emily Chapman and I both wrote a guest post. Emily wrote about How to Meet Deadlines and Remain Sane over on Joy's blog. I for one need to read and learn from that! I feel like I have so many deadlines to meet these days!

I posted on Esther's blog, sharing tips on how to create a character who comes to life on the page. Here's a sneak peek:

3. Make Them Lovable and Relatable
Even though my readers got aggravated with Gi for making stupid decisions, they still seemed to like her! This is crucial, because the last thing I’d want is an unlovable character. She has her stubborn streak and sinful pride, but Gi is also a bit silly, offbeat, loving, and compassionate. I tried to balance out her flaws and weaknesses to make her real.

In other news, when I was stalking my own Goodreads page to see the reviews of Ain't We Got Fun, I noticed that it was on an Epistolary Fiction list. I'm not sure who put it on there, but thank you to whoever did!!! It's currently 282 out of 338 books. Want to help us get it higher in the list? You can vote for it HERE.

Update: It's now #87!! Thank you all so much!
