#MondayBlogs My Average Day as an Author
The average day as an author varies from writer to writer, but I think there’s a huge misconception that we wake up, write all day, and fall asleep at the end of the night with thousands of words ready for print. In reality, most authors—yes, even The New York Times Best Sellers—work day jobs. Writing is… Continue reading #MondayBlogs My Average Day as an Author
Another month has gone by, and now, two more books are out in the world! Yippee! 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… Continue reading July’s Ketchup
#BookRelease Bad Bloods: November Rain!
Bad Bloods: November Rain released TODAY! Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, Smashwords, Goodreads I cannot express how grateful I am to be here today. Bad Bloods was my first publication, but it is so much more than that. On March 16, 2003, my mother suddenly passed away from a drug overdose, and I was left with an overwhelming range… Continue reading #BookRelease Bad Bloods: November Rain!
#SATurdate: Independence Day Resurgence, The Last Star, & PokemonGO
What I’m Writing: Unfortunately, I’m still in a writing slump. Right when I think I’m getting my footing somewhere, I feel like it slips out from under me. That being said, I’ve reached a point in the Bad Bloods Prequel (which is free on Wattpad, hint hint) that I’ve had to start writing more information… Continue reading #SATurdate: Independence Day Resurgence, The Last Star, & PokemonGO

#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
#SATurdate: BFest, YouTube Tropes, Thirteen Reasons Why, and My Library
What I’m Writing: I’m not going to lie. Between BFest, moving my office, and working my day job (that is also keeping me crazy busy right now), I wasn’t able to write as much as I wished to this week. That being said, I mainly worked on editing Dreammare some more, and I prepped Violet’s… Continue reading #SATurdate: BFest, YouTube Tropes, Thirteen Reasons Why, and My Library
#MondayBlogs Authors, Add Extras to Books
Writing a book is long process often filled with notes, maps, character charts, soundtracks, and Sticky Notes. If a novel is 350 pages long, there’s probably a stack of papers twice that high that led up to the publication of it. Whether it was an editorial letter or a rewrite or a list of background… Continue reading #MondayBlogs Authors, Add Extras to Books
Normally, I put announcements at the bottom, but today is going to be an exception. My publisher, Clean Teen Publishing, is based in Dallas, and we want to give back to the tornado victims. 50% of Wednesday’s CTP Amazon Profits to Go to Tornado Victims. (You can read the full post on their official website by… Continue reading December’s Ketchup
