A Werewolf's Tale

Welcome to the A to Z challenge - Wondertastic!

A to Z Writing advice:
Who are you? – I have posted on this before as I try to get my own name out there. We may not be spotlight stealers or attention seekers, but to get our books sold, we must be noticed. Tara Tyler is an adventure writer in many genres. I like to keep it light and entertaining, with a moral to the story as a hidden surprise. I'm happy to say that I feel I'm accomplishing that goal. But, coming out of my shell isn't easy. Online we are more apt to meet others, it's in person we need to find a way to shine. So discover yourself and advertise your product, which is you and your writing!

Visiting BROKEN BRANCH FALLS (MG Fantasy):

Rove in cartoon
Werewolves - part wolf part humanoid, hairy with super sensitive smelling and hearing, also don't want to go wandering into their forest at night as that's when they hunt for their dinner
WHEN THE WIND BLOWS Book 3 in the Beast World Series. Evil is brewing in sector 9!






And for laughs:
Reasons Men are Happier People... 

W is for Wrinkles
Wrinkles add character on men's faces.

Men are unable to see wrinkles in clothes.

I have always been fascinated with stories involving werewolves. My favorite season of True Blood was the werewolf season LOL

Fifi Islaih said...

Yeah I feel like I still need to put my name out there. Thank you!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hopefully I'm getting my name out there.
And I'll have you know that I am the only one in my house who uses the iron!

I think you are accomplishing your Branding Goal. You now have it boiled down to a sentence. That is wonderful. The worst thing when someone asks, "What do you write?" is to go on and on and on. A good sentence is a Must-Have.

I wouldn't say I'm all nutso about werewolves, but I do prefer them to dead, cold vampires. ;)

Rhonda Albom said...

I am not really into werewolf stories, but I have noticed that men don't notice wrinkles.

Sue Kuentz said...

I would love to get my hands on a good werewolf story to tell to older children! Fun posts!

A werewolf - cool!

Good laughs - my husband does iron his work clothes but the other part is true when he's not going to work. :)

I think God created the internet for writers. At the same time he decided wrinkles went well with his gender. I'm still writing him letters about that.

new writers are shy. In my writing classes it took a while for the new students to share their work. But you have to get out there and learn what others think of your writing and how they can help. If you don't share, you lost. Nice blog

Tara Tyler is one awesome gal!!!

I do sometimes feel like I am going to make people bored with me, but you're right, you must be seen to be
known.

p.s. Did you check out the Ohio River Book fest site? We're side by side!!!

Knowing who we are, our brand, is one of those really tricky things - let's face it, they pay people to develop stuff like that, so it's an acquired skill ;P Plus, it involves actually talking to people!

I've noticed this phenomena of men who get better looking with age and don't. haha.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Those durn wrinkles are catching up to us all.

Ros said...

I like werewolves, your 'And for laughs' sections - and your blog generally! New follower.

LD Masterson said...

I definitely prefer werewolves to vampires or zombies. But did you have to mention wrinkles?

Sabrina Garie said...

Great A to Z theme. I really enjoy the just for laughs section on reasons men are happier. :)

Stephanie Faris said...

Yes, writing is a solitary effort, but to get readers we can't be solitary. It's a weird balance we strike!

D Biswas said...

Never liked werewolves.

But I've loved the short but smart writing tips you've dished out throughout the challenge, Tara.
