I’m BAACCCKKKK —with a Video Blog & other news @phetteogburn

Happy Monday,

Let me say that I am so super sorry for being away for so long. During my absence, I’ve gone through a divorce, began a new relationship and have been doing some intense soul searching — which I’m going to share in my new video blog launching October 1st — along with my author journey.

I’ve gotten lotsa questions about the steps I took to write my book, so I figured it’d be even greater to simply tell it all in Video/blog a.k.a. Vlog form.

I need you to do me a favor and subscribe to my YouTube Channel so that the second I launch on October 1st, you will get a message in your email box. If you ever wanted to know how to write that book, hear other authors’ stories, or to get motivated, click HERE to subscribe. There will be weekly writing exercises, giveaways and prizes. You don’t want to miss out on that stuff, do you?

The launch happens October 1st!!!! Subscribe by clicking HERE and, when you get to my YouTube Channel, tap the little red Subscribe button on the right hand side to be a part of the festivities.

See you soon…

P.S.
I also changed the way I write my name. I’ll tell you all about it in a Vlog post soon!

Website Makeover, Merry New Yr & all that good stuff…#2013 #update

Here it is the end of January and this is my first post of 2013. Though my intentions are good, I know I must be diligent when it comes to blogging/writing/expressing regularly (a semi, sorta New Year’s Resolution, but I don’t wanna call it that on the grounds I may jinx it *wink).

My time away has not been because I’ve been, ya know, slacking and watching way too much Scandal, Private Practice, and Double Divas or anything like that…eh, maybe that’s part of the reason; however, I have accomplished some things:

1. I enlisted the help of Duolit to makeover my site and make it more…ME! They tweaked the banner, cleaned up the tabs, and added a button for 3 Chicks and Some Books (A Collabo Project). I’m satisfied with the results. bannercomparison

2. I have some collaborative projects coming up and, I must say, I’m for real for real excited about ‘em.*See #1

3. My goal is to write at least 5 books by the end of 2013. Now, with all the voices, I meant, characters in my head, this should be a fairly easy task, right? NOT! But I’m up for the challenge. See my Work In Progress page for more in-fo!

4. This ones a biggie…I sent my manuscript for Innocence, GA (a book I’ve been working on since NaNoWriMo 2011) to my editor. This right here is celebratory. Here’s an excerpt –> InnocenceGAExcerpt Phettefront(2)

What are some of your goals/plans for the year?

If your book is a movie, who’s in your dream cast?

Let me just start by saying that the Self Publishing Team are magnificent when it comes to all things “writing.” So, I thank them for this blog post idea.

If my short story S&M: Sexts & Messaging were being made into a movie (which, by the way, it is –>SEE! –but I digress) my dream cast would be:

Omari Hardwick as Hank (Sabra’s husband)
Omari Hardwick

Melissa DeSousa as Sabra
Melissa DeSousa

Lance Gross as Kenzu
Lance

Anika Noni Rose as Quatrina

Who would your dream cast be?
