Blog Campaign

I'm so excited, I've joined my first blog campaign! Although a little daunting if I'm honest. Not having ever done anything like this before, I'm a wee bit unsure of what I'm letting myself in for over the next few weeks.

The idea is the brainchild of Rachael Harrie who has come up with a fabulous way of linking the writing community together, the aim being to raise our  presence, and build our online platform. As well as making lots of new writing buddies along the way.

As I understand it, there will be activities, as well as chat groups to join, some specific to the genre each of us write. Its going to be fun, and its not too late to join if you're quick.

There is a special Twitter tag #writecampaign and we're encouraged to use it, to get the word out there, on what's happening in our writing communities.

I've got to go now, lots to do, people to meet, blogs to visit. Why not come with me? Its going to be amazing.

  1. Hi Maria!

    I'm in horror/mystery/paranormal romance 2 campaign categories. What does dark fiction encompass? I'm still trying to learn the fine lines between various genres...

  2. Hi from a fellow UK first-time campaigner! I'm actually a fellow Leics writer, as it happens. I think this campaign will be good; I've already found several cool blogs to follow.

  3. Isis - Thank you for the welcome, I truly have no idea what I'm doing right now. But it feels right!

    Lesann - Dark Fiction? Difficult to pin down, but mainly based in the camps of horror, fantasy, science fiction, speculative stuff.

    I write urban fantasy, but have been known to dabble in the paranormal, as well as all of the above. Shall we say, a genre of fiction concerned with fear, death,and anything sinister?

    Beth - Yep, we are local, and have just found each other.

    A warm welcome to you all, I look forward to visiting your blogs, do come back again soon.

  6. Hi Maria, a fellow campaigner here (at least one of many!).

    Ooooh, I want to read some of your fiction, I have an affinity for some dark things, and my fantasy always seems to take a dark twist.

    My poor characters, they never get to be happy or have a good time . . .

  10. Hey, I'm in your UF group! My books tend to have plenty of fantasy, sometimes dark, sometimes light, depending on what I'm writing. But I'm sure big on vampires and Weres.

    Hope to get to know you better during--and after--the campaign.

  15. Hi,
    I'm a fellow campaigner as well as a panster as you say. The only thing is I enjoy not knowing where my characters are going. Granted some stories run out of steam after a while but then I just go on to another.
