Veronica's #WritersDiary, The Big #Reveal: Twins in the City: Playtime at Castlewood Manor!

Oh baby, it's a #bookcover reveal ⏫(turn up the sound)! It's that most wonderful time of year (to #promote and #sell those books) and what better way to celebrate for a #writer than a new title to reveal!? (plus I get to use an interrobang, how cool is that?!😁) I decided it was time to show the world my latest creation and give myself a #writing, um, incentive (ie if you #reveal it you must #write it🤪). Let's give Twins in the City: Playtime at Castlewood Manor a big #HearHear cheer! 💖👑

I think I've finally come out of my election coma and am back to #writing this latest tale. I'm targeting a February, 2021 release which will coincide with the three year #anniversary when I first launched The Crown for Castlewood Manor! Six book babies in three years--I am so grateful to been given this spectacular life chance. Thanks to all of you who have supported me--I cannot tell you what a privilege it has been to get to know you! #ThankYou!! 💖👑

For this latest literary endeavor I've once again used the fabulous #bookcover and #teaser animation skills of Morgan Wright (@byMorganWright). I absolutely love these and the music clip by GeeGee Music Productions adds that extra bit of je nais se quoi to make these ads pop! You can find out more about Morgan's fabulous services here:

Hope everyone is doing well and settling in to the election results---I know many are happy and many are not so much. The main thing is that we have a new path forward, I'm keeping an open mind and looking to experience all the great changes that have been promised...

As of this writing, we're back in #lockdown here in southern California--#Thanksgiving just became dinner for two (sigh)... It's Wednesday, time for #DearDiary:

👑It's AD Mania This Week!👑

Cha-ching, Holy #Crown Jewels! A #writer's life is always busy and for me these next few weeks it's all about the marketing. I've made major investments in some ad campaigns on Pinterest and with KIRKUS REVIEWS. I'll be watching these very closely to see how #sales are impacted. I'm hoping for big results given the investment required. I'll be giving an update in the New Year. In the meantime, please check out my ads--I'd appreciate any feedback!💖👑

Expect the unexpected this week from the #writers of Twitter...

Author D.B. Carter, The Sting: She's Always Hated Halloween, 5🌟

Angel, a young woman on the run with her boyfriend, Gary, is feeling the strain and stress of their life choices. When he tells her of a potential job that seems too good to be true, she hesitates, realizing their fleeting luck may be about to run out.

They meet with Chantel, who offers the couple a dubious deal that promises a quick payout. As Angel and Gary learn the details of what's involved, Angel's heart sinks. Will she and Gary go be able to live with with their deeds? On Halloween night, the plans are put into play--as the clock ticks away, they will soon learn if their scheme will work.

Author Carter once again weaves a tale that will keep you glued to the page to the very end. This is one short story that concludes with a finale I did not see coming! The Sting is a tale of the unexpected that will give you chills--highly recommended!

Next up in the #reading queue:

Join us later today for our next #BOOKEM YouTube Chat!

This week I'm on deck in my #holiday finery talking: Keep Calm Y'all and #Promote Those Books! I'll also be featuring Derek King's fabulous poetry collection, Noir! See you soon!

Welcome to my world. Have a fabulous #week and #weekend friends!

Crowns and Kisses,


P.S. I've binge watched The Crown Season 4 the past few days, how 'bout you? Gemma is definitely glad our #RoyalFamily is fictitious in our #cozy series, me too! 😲💖👑
