Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s 2022? I know I sure can’t. This year, I will have my ten-year blogging anniversary in September. That fact alone gives me a lot of reasons to reflect. But enough about reflecting. What about taking action? Setting goals can be a tricky business. How many should you set?… Continue reading Make This Your #1 Writing Goal in 2022
Did I Fail At Blogging? At Writing?
Last month, I received my WordPress award for six years of blogging. And it felt like such a lie. Most of you know that I stopped blogging this year. It started in April, a little over six months ago, and it is by far the biggest step back from blogging I’ve ever taken. I tried… Continue reading Did I Fail At Blogging? At Writing?
Why I’m Not Blogging Right Now
Hey, folks! I know I’ve been absent from the blogging world for longer than ever since I began in 2012. Some of you might have noticed that I returned to social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter), so I thought I’d post a short (okay, so I tried to make it short) explanation as to why… Continue reading Why I’m Not Blogging Right Now
See You Later, September!
It’s that time again. Every year, I take one month off of blogging and social media to reevaluate, get organized, and…well, relax. (And by “relax” I mean write more books.) I’ll probably be around on Twitter and Instagram still. Other than that, I’ll be signing books and talking about young adult literature at Barnes &… Continue reading See You Later, September!
Wow! August, I’m looking at you. You are wonderful. For those of you just now checking in this month, Ketchup actually means “catch up.” At the end of every month, I write these posts describing what goes on behind the scenes at ShannonAThompson.com. Some of the topics I cover include my big moments, top blog… Continue reading August’s Ketchup
#MondayBlogs So, You Want To Be A Book Blogger
I must clarify one thing before I start: I am not a book blogger, but I used to be—for about three years—and I still post book reviews on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. I also help authors connect with book bloggers every day. I’m an author myself, after all. I know how… Continue reading #MondayBlogs So, You Want To Be A Book Blogger
#WW Stopping Guest Posts & New Line-Up
Since January of this year, I’ve featured a guest writer every Monday. I was hoping to continue this tradition for at least a year, but with the Christmas season approaching, I’ve been denying articles more than accepting articles (due to the submitted articles mainly being advertisements). That being said, I’ve been very fortunate that so… Continue reading #WW Stopping Guest Posts & New Line-Up
#BookRelease Death Before Daylight!
Before I share a letter, here is where you can find Death Before Daylight: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, Goodreads Don't forget! The first book is free. 🙂 Letter from the author: (Oh, wait. That's me.) Wow! This is surreal. Just a couple years ago, I thought my publishing journey was over. Then, I signed with one publisher… Continue reading #BookRelease Death Before Daylight!
August’s Ketchup Wow! Another month has passed, and with it, Seconds Before Sunrise has released. (And the last novel releases in September!) I was blown away by your support this past month, so thank you! I have more prizes and fun coming your way soon. For those of you just now checking in this month,… Continue reading August Ketchup
#WW I’m Leaving Again (But wait. There’s more.)
I’m leaving again. I know. I know. WHAT?! Didn’t you just get back from Penned Con in St. Louis? Yes. Yes, I did. And—by the way—Penned Con was wonderful, and I plan on writing all about it as soon as I return. That being said, I’m off to Atlanta today. In fact, right as you’re… Continue reading #WW I’m Leaving Again (But wait. There’s more.)
