Linkage & An Upcoming Giveaway!

Links about the Hero's Journey

First, for those who attended my presentation on The Hero's Journey method of plotting at the League of Utah Writers meeting in Provo in June, (or those who didn't), Jordan McCollum has posted many of her notes in two different posts.

I used a lot of fantasy stories as examples (Star Wars, Harry Potter), but some attendees asked how the archetypal structure applies to romance. Good question. It does, since I use it and write romance myself. (In fact, I think using it helped me plot out my last book, Tower of Strength, quicker than any of my others.)

Today, Jordan has a guest post addressing that very thing. See it HERE.

Read her other posts about my presentation and The Hero's Journey concept HERE and HERE.


Coming very soon (dates and details TBA), I will be doing a review and giveaway through Accent Furniture.

I get to review a particular product, which they'll be sending me to try out, and then one of my blog readers will get one of their own as well.

I won't reveal what that product is until I review it and the giveaway begins (stay tuned!), but even though mine hasn't arrived to test out, let's say that I think I chose well, and that the winner will thank me.

This should be fun.

Josi is thinking along the same lines as me. What a celebrity you've become! Yay for perks!

How fun for this giveaway. I'm dying to know what you're planning to review!

Jordan McCollum said...

Wow—always makes my day to check the feed reader for the one billionth time and find not only a post from Annette, but one that links to me. Thanks, Annette (and once again, so glad to have you back!).
