PHOTO CONTEST DETAILS BELOW
Day Seventeen of #NaNoProMo is About Podcasting
National Novel Promotion Month took place in May. I missed it. Better late than never!
I’m a mute. Anyone want to listen to a Podcast of me clicking my tongue, clapping, or snapping my fingers for fifteen minutes a week? Think I’d sell more books if I tossed a microphone up a tree and let readers listen to sounds of nature? (Pretty sure that’s been done to death.)
So I’m doing something else for today’s NaNoProMo.
It’s PHOTO CONTEST TIME!!!
