Nicky Wells tells The Review Girl all about creating and developing a lead character….

Today, it is my great pleasure to post a guest-blog on The Review Girl as part of the virtual book tour for Sophie’s Turn.  When Komal contacted me and suggested I should write a guest blog on writing and developing a main character, my first reaction was one of despair.  I’m not a ‘trained’ writer as  such, have never been to any writing courses, and have never tried to teach  anybody else to write.  What I do, is write.  So how could I possibly offer a  guest blog on this subject?

Well, it turned out to be quite easy, once I thought about it.  Visit The Review Girl to read my guest blog…and even see a little artifact from my archives of Sophie’s Turn!

Thanks to Komal for hosting a guest blog on her site–I am delighted to be there and look forward to seeing you all there, too. 🙂

Nicky Wells visits Mandy Baggot for a “Meet and Greet”

This week, I have the pleasure and the privilege of visiting Mandy Baggot for one of Mandy’s very special ‘Meet and Greet’ features.  I met Mandy (virtually) very early on in my virtual book tour for Sophie’s Turn, and Mandy was enthusiastic about the idea of welcoming me to her blog…  Next thing I know, she forwarded me this incredible set of questions to find out more about what I do and how I do it.  In particular, Mandy wanted to know about my writing dream… see what I said at http://mandybaggot.webs.com/meetandgreet.htm.

Thank you, Mandy, for this fabulous opportunity.  I really enjoy being your guest!

Cheerio,

Nicky xx 🙂

Nicky Wells reveals how “Sophie’s Turn” was born with a quite different title… in a brand-new guest blog on Chick Lit Central (with give-away)!

Hello chick lit lovers!  Today, it is my great pleasure to post a guest-blog on the fabulous chick lit blog, Chick Lit Central.  The wonderful people behind Chick Lit Central–especially the two Melissas–were among the very first to agree, way back in July, to help this here indie author promote her book, in the first instance through this guest blog (with give-away!) and also through a review later in the year.  And, in fact, this is the very first guest blog I ever wrote (even though I’ve published a couple in the meantime)!  So a big, fat, huuuuge, Thank You to Chick Lit Central for their encouragement and unfailing support.  Guys, you really gave me courage when I first dipped my toes into the indie waters!

Right, enough of the prelims… What is this post all about then?  Titled “Turning the Title,” this guest blog considers how Sophie’s Turn didn’t actually see the light of day being called Sophie’s Turn at all! So what happened?  Find out all about the original title and its evolution here:  http://chicklitcentraltheblog.blogspot.com/2011/09/nicky-wells-teaches-us-trick-to-finding.html!

In addition, there is a give-away associated with my post on Chick Lit Central and there are TWO e-copies of Sophie’s Turn up for grabs.  The competition is live now and ends on 25 September.  Visit Chick Lit Central to find out how to enter.  I see there is quite a bit of interest already: Rock on, folks!  Good luck to all entrants.

Cheerio and take care… 🙂
