Vol. #13: Showcasing (3) More Awesome Gang Authors!!

Hello Everyone!

How are you spending your day on this peaceful Sunday evening!? May your weekend also either be uneventful and efficient as possible. As I mentioned in previous posts, my 16-year old son, named John Collazo, is in the process of building his social network on social media. He has taken a recent interest in marketing and wants to build his brand and help creators promote their creative work. His business enterprise that he is building is called, “Call To Action Marketing”. Call To Action Marketing will be known on social media by his hashtag #CTAMarketing. If you could find him under his name and business name and connect with him, that would be highly appreciated. This post is intended to share even more work of some independent authors, such as myself, and earn some good karma in the process. Why not offer you a taste of a variety of authors with different content? My objective is to pick out different authors that offer a variety of media content. For the record, I know nothing about the author other than what is showcased in the author article that was shared, via Awesome Gang. Feel free to copy and paste and share this content on your blog, if you like. As an author, if you want to add more information, drop it down in the comment section below and I will edit and add at my earliest convenience. For now, I’m connecting with the authors in an effort to build my author network. Hopefully, they will follow me back on social media. I’m game to cross promote each other on social media as well. Just let me know or re-tweet one of my posts and I will automatically return the favor. I’m totally cool with many ways to help each other market each other. When you are a small content creator, it is important to help others out. Do you have any requests for a specific author or style of content? Let me know your various suggestions down the in the comment section below. Here are (3) showcased authors down below:

Showcased Author- 1.) Karen Leah Scott

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Always having a love for romance and writing, when I retired I decided to combine the two. Started off by ghostwriting Amish romance books and finally made the big move to self-publish my own. Since then I have published around nine books of my own and still going strong.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The latest book is entitled “Promise Me.” It was inspired by a friend who was in a relationship with a man who made all kinds of promises but never followed through.
The first two books I ever wrote were inspired by a move to Leamington, Ontario along the shores of Lake Erie. That’s where I came with the idea of a series that take place in Leamingville Meadows.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?
No really. I tend to spend time writing out a summary, chapter by chapter then when I begin writing, I never follow it. I go where my characters take me.

What authors, or books have influenced you?
Nora Robers and Danielle Steele were big influencers along with Diane Gabaldon.

What are you working on now?
Right now I’m working on another Leamingville Meadows story about a young girl who owns her bakery trying to find the love of her life.

What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Right now I only use amazon and Facebook, but I’m thinking of expanding and trying some others. I always used to say I don’t care if anyone reads my books, but I actually do. If I know I have made one person feel good after reading a book, I know I have accomplished something.

Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t be afraid. Get those words down on paper. It will all fall into place.

What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Write. Don’t worry about mistakes in the beginning, Get the story down on paper, then fix it.

What are you reading now?
Not reading anything – too busy writing.

What’s next for you as a writer?
To just keep on writing. Keeps me busy and my mind active.

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Naughty words for nice writers, Outlander, and anything Danielle Steele

When you write, make it detailed enough that the reader can walk in the shoes of and get completely immersed in the character without too much fillers for the sake to achieving a a set goal of minimum words.

I recently shared my latest short story that has been loaded up to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library on Amazon. This is short story #11 entitled, “Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools”. This short story covers my life as a widowed, single mother in the era when I juggled both motherhood and my career as a journeywoman electrician. I share the various challenges I faced and lessons learned along the way. The previous short story is entitled: #10: “Early Life Lessons & Characters To Meet As An Apprentice”. I decided to write about some life lessons such as guarding your personal information, managing nasty rumors, combating sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism. Overall, the construction culture has improved dramatically over the past 25-years. Developing both a thick skin and a sharp tongue are key tools needed to survive various jobsite antics. I hope you learn something from this short story. There are more to come. These short stories are now also available as Verbally Disastrous podcast episodes.
