A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal

Hey everyone!

Today, I'm just doing a quick stop to take part in the A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal.


The rules are simple. If you're taking part in the A to Z Challenge, sign up here

Then on your blog, do a post to announce the theme you'll be following this year. 

As for my theme... Well. I know usually I post about writing or editing, but this year I'll be up to my neck in pre-release activities. For those of you who are new to my blog, I'm releasing a book on 30 April. 

So. To remain sane and to give people a few glimpses into the book, I thought I'd do this: 


In other words, I'll be sharing A to Z related snippets every day along with a short intro. 

Quick and simple, yes. Which means I'll be able to visit more of you. Which is good, since I'm also part of this: 


Welcome to anyone new who's stopping by! Let me know what you think of the theme!

Sounds interesting. Great way to get to know your book. Cool.

Considering you'll be working toward a release, I say it's the perfect A to Z theme. Like Jamie said, it's a great way for readers to get to know your book.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Smart theme! I included bits about Dragon of the Stars last year for my theme.

Yolanda Renee said...

I love it! I'm doing the same thing with Murder & Obsession. I've been told book blog tours don't carry any weight, gosh first it was FB is useless, don't discuss your book on twitter and now book blog tours are out. I don't get it, but damn, I'm talking about Alaska and my latest regardless. Besides it's my favorite topic. :)

I think that's a great way to get people excited about your new book. I'm looking forward to reading the snippets next month. Cheers - Ellen | thecynicalsailor.blogspot.com

Shilpa Garg said...

That's a smart theme which serves dual purpose! Good luck for your book, Misha and the April challenge too! Cheers ♥

Best wishes.

I remember your blog from last year. It is thrilling that you are keeping your five year plan. I'm sure it has had its twists and turns. Congratulations on the release of your book. I look forward to catching up on your blog.

Sarah Zama said...

Promoting your book through the AtoZ, that's a great idea!

That sounds like a two fold theme, giving us insight to the book and participating in the A-Z all at the same time. Can't wait.

Piper Presley said...

Your goal to make $7,000 or so a month is close to my goal of $5,000 a month within the next 5 years. Anyway, good luck with your A to Z posts!

It's cool that you want to share your book.

Sarah Allan said...

Great theme! It's different for every author, so it's kind of neat to get a look into someone else's process.

Deborah Weber said...

What a great way to play in the challenge. I look forward to your posts.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Loved the banner with Counting Down to Endless! Lovely.

Here's to a great AtoZ this year.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

What a gorgeous cover! Great idea for a theme.

I think the A to Z challenge is a great way to get to know so many new bloggers... I couldn't participate though, I barely have time to write once a week... Good luck Misha xox

Samantha Redstreake Geary said...

Yay!! We'll help you countdown to the launch with coffee & wine and witty banter!!

Stepheny Houghtlin said...

A great decision for your theme. I wrote about the settings in a newly released novel last year. I enjoyed writing the posts and hopefully people enjoyed the read. I can't say that I SOLD books as a result, but the posts were interesting in and of themselves. Good luck with followers in 2016.

Jen Chandler said...

J here, stopping by from the #atozchallenge - where I am part of Arlee Bird's A to Z Ambassador Team.
Excellent choice for an A to Z challenge theme. Good job. My theme is the craft of fiction writing. Tips, lessons, and prompts from various writing reference books. I follow it up with a sample of my work.
Your theme is great. I'm looking forward to seeing even more of it on my blog! :) ;)
April should be exciting. I'm looking forward to the event. Best of luck to us both on meeting our goals of posting and hopping to other blogs.
My blog has a giveaway. There's a bonus a to z challenge each day to encourage people to visit more stops.
