Book In A Month Challenge

Posted by Lordsheryl on March 18, 2016 at 10:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Starting March 1, 2016 I have been motivating myself to write more.  I have been using a Novel Writing Kit that includes cards and a 30 day journal.  The goal is to write everyday.  I like this;  it really helps you focus. Even though I get tired or frustrated because I miss the mark - I am not giving up.

I am so excited for 2016. 

I believe it will be an amazing year for my book "African Venus" and my up coming sequel - "Venus Rising".

As I continue to finalize my 2nd installment I am actively promoting "African Venus" on Facebook and Twitter. 

I am gaining new followers on Kindle as well and trying Periscope.  All of these things have my head buzzing with ideas.

Love,

Sheryl

I celebrated my books 2nd year being published by going to the Harlem Book Fair held here in NYC on July 18, 2015.  I met alot of interesting authors and had some great conversations.  The time has gone by so quickly and I must admit it has really been a learning experience.  The main thing that I have learned is the importance of social media.  Learning about Facebook, Twitter, and blogging.  I still struggle with making time to do part II of my signature novel; I kn...

A Great Venus Story

There a gospel song called "Encourage Yourself" by Donald Lawrence & The Tri-City Singer.  It comes to mind this cold morning in New York.  I have been encouraged to write this book and received confirmations from so many sources that I am moving in the right direction.  My biggest challenge is making time to write a broader version of the African Venus story/brand. 

If I had my way I would go someplace beautiful like Florida or Hawaii to write. I don't hav...
