#AuthorLifeMonth, Book Barbarian, and Forged From The Stars

This month, I'm participating in #AuthorLifeMonth, a photo-based game in which writers from all walks of life post pictures on Instagram in response to the daily theme. There's a different theme for each day of February. The rules are simple: post your photo and a description and include the hashtag #AuthorLifeMonth. Today is only the third day and I'm already having a lot of fun with it.

The themes are as follows:

Day 1: your books

Day 2: Your author photo

Day 3: Your last 5-star read

Day 4: Your WIP

Day 5: Comp covers (the covers or images that inspired your cover art)

Day 6: Fan art/edit

Day 7: Writing music

Day 8: Awesome moment

Day 9: Challenge overcome

Day 10: Non-author photo

Day 11: A fave review

Day 12: Killed darlings

Day 13: A fave book in genre

Day 14: Fave of your covers

Day 15: Swag

Day 16: Where you write

Day 17: Where you relax

Day 18: Research

Day 19: Your critique partners

Day 20: Fave chapter ending

Day 21: Your muse

Day 22: A dedication page

Day 23: Bucket list item

Day 24: Bucket list item done

Day 25: Pimp a pub-sib (support another author or book published by your same publisher; if you're self-published, just support a fellow author!)

Day 26: A fave book outside genre

Day 27: Your signature

Day 28: Fave event outfit/accessory

And since February has 29 days this year, Day 29 is a free day!

Come join me on this journey throughout the month! Look for my #AuthorLifeMonth posts on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook.
