I’m in! This year, for the first time, I’ll participate in the much-applauded, highly-acclaimed writer’s blog hop called A to Z Challenge.
A to Z: Literary Genres
…a genre for every letter of the alphabet. I’ll include:
Popular books in the genre
I skipped the genre tips I did in the past. Many of these were new to me (like Kitchen Sink–who knew?) and I’m amazed how much I learned researching for this blog hop. Here are the genres I will cover in April:
If you click on the link prior to the publication date, it won’t work. Come back though!
If you’re doing the AtoZ Challenge, please add your name and blog address to this interactive list. Then I’ll be sure to visit you each day. Thanks!
To see who’s responded, look below at this spreadsheet.
If you’re not doing AtoZ, please still visit and leave comments or virtual hugs. Ask me how it is going on Twitter (@worddreams); drop in on FB and let me know what you’re doing INSTEAD OF writing endless blog posts.
OK. We start April 1st. I’m ready (I think)!
Jacqui Murray is the author of the popular Building a Midshipman, the story of her daughter’s journey from high school to United States Naval Academy, and the thriller, To Hunt a Sub. She is also the author/editor of over a hundred books on integrating tech into education, adjunct professor of technology in education, webmaster for four blogs, an Amazon Vine Voice book reviewer, a columnist for TeachHUB, monthly contributor to Today’s Author and a freelance journalist on tech ed topics. You can find her books at her publisher’s website, Structured Learning. The sequel to To Hunt a Sub, Twenty-four Days, is scheduled for May 2017. Click to follow its progress.
Looking forward to this. Sounds like a lot of work.
It has been a lot of work, but I can’t believe how much I’ve learned about genres. I’d say, in balance: worth it.
Hey Jacqui. Wow am I glad I came to look at the A to Z tag this morning. I have been thoroughly confused on literary genres forever. Considering my age that is quite a long time. I love your Google form but unsure if it captured my information.
This will be my third try at A to Z with a 50% success rate so far. But, alas, this year I am positive I will complete it because I have invested so much time in preparation. I will be laying out a new novel concept over the 26 post journey. The Steel Horse Saviors is a story about three civil war veterans who head west in 1866 with their Steam Locomotive to seek their fortune. They encounter a beautiful redhead trying desperately to save her family business. I invite you to check it out come April 1st.
Joe @ the Fiction Playground visiting from the A to Z Challenge
That book sounds wonderful. I will definitely come see what you have to say about it. Hopefully, it’s to be published soon.
I hope you don’t mind (since you said you tried to add your name), I added you to the spreadsheet of A to Z participants. It’s the surest way for me to know where to go each morning. The list isn’t used for anything else!
Look forward to our April visits, Joe!
Will you keep this handy for others to reference? Yes, I definitely wanted to add my name and blog. Thanks!
Yes, definitely. It’ll be updated as people sign up, right on this post. I did kind of hide yours (scroll down the sheet to find it).
Thanks so much. I have tried to follow some interesting blogs, but know there are many I have not seen so far.
Reblogged this on World4Justice : NOW! Lobby Forum..
Thanks for the reblog!
Wow! Good luck, Jacqui! I look forward to seeing/hearing of your progress!
It will be a busy month, but I’m excited to try this blog hop!
I am surprised you are not including Historical Fiction, especially with your book on the beginning of man. Is it a case of you being historically bummed out now?
I have covered Historic Fiction on my blog before so I was trying to avoid those. In retrospect, that may have been a msitake!
This sounds exciting. New novel concept? Can’t wait.
I’m ready to go!
BTW, I tried to visit your blog, but couldn’t find it. Am I doing something wrong? Could you give me the link again?
Jacqui, I’m already a follower of your blog and I’m not doing the A to Z challenge this year. I think I should not add my name to the list because people might come looking for my A to Z submission, which won’t be there, but I will still get your A to Z posts anyway. Correct?
Yes–that’s right. This is muchly for me, so I have a list of people to visit every day.
