Fourth Writers' Platform-building Campaign! and Kate Kaynak's Latest

Kate Kaynak's Operative is coming! This is the fifth book in the Ganzfield series, all about Maddie Dunn and the other G-positives who live at the Ganzfield training facility. I reviewed the third book, Legacy, here.

In the latest book, Maddie and the others (including sparks and minders - and Maddie's boyfriend, a telekinetic (who, because of what happened in the last book, is now afraid to touch her)) have to catch the person selling classified information about them to terrorists - before they become the targets. I'm looking forward to reading it this weekend!

"the Campaign is a way to link those of us in the writing community together with the aim of helping to build our online platforms. The Campaigners are all bloggers in a similar position, who genuinely want to pay it forward, make connections and friends within the writing community, and help build each others' online platforms while at the same time building theirs."

This time around I've limited myself to one Campaign Group: Group 18 - Romance/Contemporary Romance/Sweet Romance/Historical Romance. So far we've got Frost, Christy, Melissa, Kaylie and Synithia. Come join us!

The Campaign runs until Saturday, March 17, 2012. The List of Campaigners closes 15 February, so make sure you sign up before then. We'll be having two challenges, in the weeks of 20 February and 5 March. Rach always sets great challenges, featuring impossible words and fun scenarios. Here are some that I've participated in:

A snip from Out of the Water, tweaked to include the words "imago", "miasma", "lacuna", "oscitate", and "synchronicity".

A snip from Rome, Rhymes and Risk, tweaked to show that: it's morning; a man or a woman (or both) is at the beach; the main character is bored; something stinks behind where he/she is sitting; and something surprising happens. Also involves all fives senses and includes the made-up words "synbatec," "wastopaneer," and "tacise."

Whew! And don't forget, the challenges from the last Campaign were collated into an ebook, Campaigner Challenges 2011:

176 stories from 81 participants, including mine. All proceeds go to Help Harry Help Others to fund research on brain cancer.

Welcome to all campaigners!
