Hi, and welcome to the home of the Manic Writer. I’m glad you stopped by.
My name is Ann Shannon. I write dystopian fiction, erotic romance and anything else that my crazy manic mind dreams up. I currently have seventeen works in progress, though I limit myself to working on two at a time. Otherwise, I can’t keep them straight. My full bio can be found here.
I participate in NaNoWriMo and the CampNaNoWriMo’s as well. Join me in the fun if you’re a writer. I don’t really need the encouragement to write but the journey’s always more fun when you’re traveling with friends. I’m Ladyminecrafter on both sites. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and is a challenge to write 50K words in thirty days. The Camps usually allow you to set your own word goals, and I always set mine high. I once wrote 80K during a camp!
This blog is a gathering of the madness in my mind, I’ll try to keep it sane for you. I publish updates about my author happenings, book reviews, and what I’ve learned on my journey as an author and writer. I also will be publishing a monthly compilation of blog posts, books and other resources that I found personally useful for your benefit. Subscribe and join the madness. If you have a blog, drop me a note, either by email or in a comment so I can check it out. I love making new author friends. I can also be found on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (which I’m still learning to use) so find me and follow me there too!
There’s a subscription box to the right, just drop your email in there and join me on our next trip around the sun. It will be a fun one! You can expect less than 10 emails a month from me and will be the first to hear about my new publications. You’ll also be eligible for exclusive Manic Follower giveaways and free offers. So join the fun.
