Wicked Wednesday - A to Z Challenge

There will be no Wicked Wednesdays during the month of April.

Don't panic. I'm not going to abandon you. I have something else in store for paranormal romance fans.

During the month of April, I'll be doing The A to Z Blogging Challenge. This is my first time participating in the challenge. I'm excited and nervous, especially with what I plan to do.

I've written a paranormal romance story that stretches over the entire month. I've had no time to revise it. It will be in its pure unedited form. I apologize if there are any glaring plot holes and grammar nightmares. With limited time and space, not all scenes follow immediately after the other. Yet I hope nothing vital has been left out so you may have the full story experience.

A few people have expressed concern that I might not be able to find a publisher for the story after posting it on my blog. No need to worry. I don't intend to publish it. This is my contribution to the Challenge and to you. Also, if you enjoy this story, you'll be more likely to buy my novels if I finally get them published!

I don't have a title for my A to Z story. Though, I've been playing around with a few taglines to tease you.

Abby White is one of the Fearless, but she's never had to face the longings of her own heart.

Parents, when your kids tell you about the monsters in the closets, believe them.
The beasts will eat them.

A is for Abby.
D is for Demetrius.
L is for love?

I hope that is enough to tantalize you to stick with me through April.

Wicked Wednesdays will be back in May. I'm curious as to what you might like to see on it. Book reviews? Interviews? Should I stick with what I've been doing? More of my own writing and experiences? Anything else you can think of?

  1. Can't wait to read your story, and if you do decide to do more with it than let it sit on your blog, I can help you self-pub it. *grins*

    As for Wicked Wednesdays, I would like to learn more about the paranormal creatures in paranormal romances and how an author can use them in a new way.

    1. We'll see what sort of response I get from it first. I want to finish WFR and then get to the 13th Floor series before anything else now. :)

      I like your idea. I've got a month to think of some cool posts for it. Thanks!

  4. ohh! I think you have a great idea! It is hard to do a post for every month of April, much less for ever letter of the alphabet!

    I agree Cherie about learning about paranormal creatures. That sounds like a few great posts!

    1. Thank you! It was hard to think of one for each letter. Especially ones like Q and X.

      Thanks also for the second vote to Cherie's idea. I'm already working up a few posts in my head.
