I hope I didn’t wake any of my regular peeps up with this mid-week post, but my blogging buddy Melissa Maygrove has a nifty-neat-o thing going on this week. It’s called a Follow Fest. It’s a chance for bloggers to find like-minded writing folks to follow them and/or get to know other bloggers.
To get involved in it I have to answer a few questions on my blog so I can link back to her site so others can find me in the blogosphere. Of course I had fun responding to her questions. I hope y’all enjoy reading my answers. 🙂
After you read these replies you may return to your regularly scheduled boring lives.
Name: Wade Webster
Fiction or nonfiction? Mostly fiction with devotionals thrown in the mix
What genres do you write? That’s like asking a schizophrenic how many personalities he has. Let’s see, I just sent off a MG proposal to a publisher at their request at Blue Ridge. Before that I sent them my Christmas devotional proposal. I also have an adult contemporary semi-romance in the works. And a picture-bookish poem I’m thinking about turning into a book app. I warned you it was complicated.
Are you published? I’ve had a few magazine articles published in a now extinct local magazine. I don’t think it was my fault, but if it’s linked to computers it probably was.
Do you do anything in addition to writing? I are a trucker, I mean I drive a truck for a living, locally for Con-way Freight.
Tell us a little about yourself. I actually enjoy running, but not marathons. Dark chocolate is my preferred means of sustenance. I was born a Michigander, but I’m now a firmly transplanted Texan. There was quite a wilderness wandering to get me to God’s promised land, but I’m here now.
What are you reading right now? I’m reading these questions so I can answer them in a somewhat meaningful way. I hope.
Which authors influenced you the most?Besides those guys who wrote the Bible I’d say Steven Bly and Chuck Swindoll would top the list.
Where can people connect with you?See the links below for that personal stuff. Puleeze.
Blog Since you’ve obviously found my blog here don’t be rude by skipping to sign up for more fun and surprises. The top subscription form is for those of y’all who want my newsletter, blog and some free samples of my writing sent directly to your email inbox. The second form is for those who either just want my newsletter and samples sent to your email and/or you prefer to get your blog posts sent via RSS feed. So, do it now before you forget!
I post a Funny Monday post every Monday morning and a Faithful Friday devotional post each Friday evening.
Goodreads as Wade Webster
Pinterest Not yet, but keep a look out for me someday when you least expect it.
YouTube Oh, yeah, I have a channel. I use it for a monthly humor vlog post on this here blog. It’s a reality dose for my subscribers. I don’t know if they’ve gotten over the shock, yet. Just look for that guy with the name Wade Webster.
Do you have a newsletter? Of course I have a newsletter…now where did I put that thing? Oh, you want to know if I put a newsletter out on a regular basis to my subscribers. Why didn’t you ask me that then? I’ve been writing a monthly newsletter for the past few months giving my peeps the inside dirt of my writing life, such as when I’ve sent out a proposal, or two. I also request prayer when I feel led to ask for assistance from above. Oh, yeah, I need that by the truckload. I’ve been putting it out the 1st of each month so far.
Is there anything else you’d like us to know? I’m a member of ACFW. I write a weekly prayer on the children’s fiction loop.
I’ll see you later. Wade
