In my last post I introduced you to a friend of mine, Josephine M. In this post I want to introduce you to K Alice Compeau, or Alice.
When I decided I wanted to write my debut novel (on which I am still working), I went to Twitter to connect with a community of writers to whom I could turn for guidance, encouragement, support and advice. Shortly afterward I met a whole ‘nother community, the hashtaggers. One of the wittiest, sharpest and cleverest people I met while playing hashtag games (badly, I admit) was Alice. She’s so good at the games that she cohosts her own game, @PeachyTags with two equally talented women.
Not only is she a witty woman, she is also a talented writer. She already has some titles under her belt, however, she is currently delving into the realm of romance writing, with her first novel close to release. As with all other writers of whom I’ve blogged, I highly recommend you follow Alice, and buy her book. Buy it, read it, review it and recommend that others do the same.
You can follow Alice on Twitter at @KAliceCompeau; on Facebook at K. Alice Compeau; on WordPress at kalicecompeau.com, where you can follow her blog and subscribe to her email, so you can receive future updates on her work. She is also on Instagram and Google+. She is a busy woman.
I started my blog in September of 2017. A lot of stuff has happened since then, and I have added a lot of posts. I have recently purchased a domain – jimgblack.blog – through WordPress.com, who has been posting my blogs from the beginning, and so I am editing this post to bring it up to date.
So…the title, Broken Anvil…what does it mean? I hear you asking. When I was younger my daddy used to say I could tear up an anvil, if I could ever get my hands on one. It wasn’t that I was a destructive little brat (depending on whom you ask), just very inquisitive as to how things worked. So, I would tear things apart to get to the insides. I just never could put them back together – hence the reason I’m not a surgeon.
Anyway, I have often thought that Broken Anvil would be a good name for a lot of things, none of which I could ever get around to creating. So I figured, what the heck? Use it as the title for my blog. If you look at my profile, you will see that I started this venture to practice my writing and just have fun with it.
I am starting my first book, and welcome any and all help, advice, tips, tricks and criticisms I can get. I hope you will read and follow my posts, and recommend me to others. My two biggest wishes are that I will become a better writer, and that you will just enjoy what you read. I have a lot of interests, and will write on a variety of things. Some serious. Some humorous. But always from the heart and my warped perspective on things. You can also follow me on Twitter and my writing page on Facebook, which I see needs a lot of serious work, by clicking on the social media icons found on each page. I hope you like what you see. If you do, please leave a like and/or a comment. And feel free to recommend my blog to others who might enjoy it.
