Saturday 23rd June, 9am until 9pm Central European Time.

PROMO DAY is an all day event for writers and people in the writing industry to promote their work, learn more about the industry, meet other writers, share tips and advice and much more. Publishers on the look out for new authors will also be attending the event so this might also be a chance to get your book in print

The first samples have now been posted to the website for viewing and more will be added through out the week. If you haven't sent me yours yet, it's not too late. Check the website for details and the format required. Samples can be from published or unpublished work (there will be publishers and agents attending the event on Saturday 23rd June who are on the look out for new authors). Please make it clear if the work has already been published.

It's also not too late to send me a file for the downloads section. Are you an expert in a particular aspect of the writing industry or want to share your tips for better writing? The files can be about anything related to writing and the industry. I'm still looking for the following topics but if you think of others that might be useful please send them too:

- staying motivated
- time management
- how to...
- alternative ways to write e.g. blogging etc...
- Interviews (as host or guest)
- Creating characters
- Getting published
- Self publishing
- writing a series
- what editors want
- Marketing and promotion
- different genres e.g. travel writing, poetry etc...

Check the website for more updates. I look forward to seeing you all there


  1. Hi, Nice stuff. I found a cool news widget for our blogs at Now I can show the latest news on my blog. Worked like a breeze.

  2. Hi,

    A quick hello to let you know that Fuelmyblog has had some surgery done and lots of changes have happened.
    Your current voting widget is not valid, to fix this all you need to do is login to your account with Fuel and follow the link for widgets. All the widgets displayed on that page have the code matching your blog and are ready to copy and paste.

    Happy blogging!


I love to hear from you. So feel free to comment, but keep in mind the basics of blog etiquette — no spam, no profanity, no slander, etc.

Thanks for being an active part of the Writers and Authors community.
