Ann Dayleview is a fantasy writer working on the release of her debut young adult contemporary fantasy.
When she is not creating magical worlds, she works as an expert digital marketer. Ann’s clients have included NY Times Bestsellers, indie authors, as well as Fortune 500 companies. She lives in (not always sunny) Philadelphia with her two dogs and husband.
Ann’s fantasy worlds are inspired by her travels. She loves to explore places where tourists often don’t go. Getting to know locals, eating at hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and shopping at unique stores is when she feels most invigorated.
Most of all, Ann loves to connect with her fellow writers. Connect with her on social media to see updates on her works and have a chat!

A progress update and a post about social media marketing

Hey Y’all, today I have a post to share with you, but first, I need to give y’all a progress update on my writing.


This month, for Camp NaNoWriMo, I have set my goal to fifty hours. Although I posted my project as Winter Haven Rescue, I find myself working on Journey to the Mountaintop. I have stitched up some plot holes, connected some disjointed scenes and split one chapter into three in a couple of places. I may have more chapters, but they are shorter and they keep the book moving at a faster pace than when I started writing it.


Yesterday I put in four and a half hours, which brings my hourly total to 9.5, but you can’t put in half hour increments on the goal updater, so I had to round up to ten. I’m going to put in a couple more hours today and see how many plot holes I can stitch up or scenes I can dump and rewrite, so pray for me and wish me luck


Now, without further ado, here’s a post about social media marketing. Please give this post a like and a share or two, and be sure to leave a comment on Ari’s blog.

Blessings and happy writing.
