Book in A Month Club!

You’re invited to join the BOOK IN A MONTH CLUB! Each year in March one of my critique groups hosts this club as we try to write an entire book in just one month. It’s crazy…it’s zany…and it’s fun!

This year I’m planning to write a new picture book manuscript. Throughout the month of March, I’m hoping to post my progress here on the blog to help show you more about the world of writing a picture book from start to finish. You can follow along and write your book while I write mine.

So hop on board and join the fun! Better yet—get you entire critique group to agree to meet the challenge of trying to write the first draft of an entire book manuscript—in just one month! If you do, you become an official member of the club. Just let me know and I’ll explain how you can be e-mailed a logo you can add to your own blog or website and a printable certificate.

Kick-off day is Saturday, March 1st!

I'm thinking about it. Hmmm. Since I'm crazy too (just like Gloria) I MAY say yes. Gloria is so much fun. She encourages me to be just a little crazier than I usually am.(o; If I say "Yes!" it's Gloria's fault. This is going to take prayer and an idea that God will have to drop right into my brain after I do my publishing research.

Yippee! I'm glad you're "considering" Sherri! I'm hearing from others, too. I think this is going to be an exciting month for all of us!

Sherri, it's more fun to be crazy with someone than alone, so let's go!!!

Okay, this sounds interesting. I've always wanted to write a book but never have. I just might give this a try. I haven't a clue how to go about it but I'm willing to learn.
