Thanks everyone who read, enjoyed, and shared my “Genealogist’s Guide to Storytelling” series! The great response shocked me, especially considering how new this blog is. So thank you!
I’m back to the bookishness side of things with a video blog today, but don’t worry. I’ve got a “genie” themed Valentine post planned for Thursday!
In this vlog, I explain that “What genre are you writing?” and “What is your book about?” are two of the hardest questions for this writer to answer. Also, my cat makes her presence felt. Literally.
Summary: When you tell folks that you’re writing a book, you need to prepare quick, conversational answers to these two important questions.
Q: What is your book’s genre?
A: It’s a Christian Historical Mystery.
Q: What is your book about?
A: It’s about a woman who has recently lost her mother, and in an effort to prove whether there is an afterlife, moves into a so-called haunted house. However, she’ll have to settle her mother’s unfinished business in order to find out who’s haunting who.
Simple, right? Evidently not …
