Page & Paragraph
I'm working on my Media Kit using advice and guidelines from The Frugal Book Promoter by Carolyn Howard-Johnson. There is much more work involved than what I expected. No wonder it's a good idea to have it done before you actually need it. Trying to create a Media Kit when someone needs it yesterday is unnecessary torture.
Between working on the Media Kit and going over an old manuscript, I'm doing a lot of writing.
The old manuscript is from my second novel and WIP, Spared Parts, the story of an adopted boy who needs a kidney transplant and wants to find his biological identity.
The well-worn storyline would be that he finds his biological mother and gets her kidney, but that's not how my story works. It does involve transplant tourism, multi-culturalism, and exposing the truth about people who would rather keep it buried.
Does that sound interesting enough? I don't want to give out too much info as I'm only one third of the way through and there are a lot of twists and turns to come before that final page.
