Right now, I’m editing what will be my eighth novel and I’m making some substantial changes to the first draft I submitted at the end of last year. So, I thought it was about time we had some fun with the book…
What I’ve loved in recent years is involving my lovely readers in not just the launch of my books but throughout the process, via my vlogs and #getinvolved challenges. It’s been so much fun to incorporate ideas – and in some cases, readers themselves as characters – into my stories.
So, this got me thinking. How can I have fun with this big edit of Book 8, while also getting my lovely readers involved?
Here’s my exciting plan…
As this is an edit and I don’t have a lot of room to put in suggestions and new characters, I’ve decided to offer some chances for teeny-tiny mentions I can sneak into the story without detracting from it or changing the pace. I’m calling these MICROCAMEOS. Think of it like film extras who appear in scenes to support the action. I would like to sneak you into the heart of the action of Book 8, hanging out with my brand new cast of characters.
Fancy grabbing a MicroCameo in my new book?
To win a spot in Book 8, simply share this blog post (via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or on your blog) and leave a comment (either below this post, on my Facebook Author Page or tweet me @wurdsmyth on Twitter) telling me why you should have a MicroCameo. I’ll pick as many as I can to sneak into the story and if you appear in the book, I’ll mention you in the Acknowledgements at the beginning, too. Entries must be in BY MIDNIGHT (GMT) ON FRIDAY 11TH MARCH.
I would love to write you into my book. What are you waiting for? Best of luck! xx
There should always be room for a school teacher, Miranda!!
Oh my God I would love to be mentioned in one of your books as it would be such an honour and a privileage. I love your stories and work as you can identify and understand the story and fall in love with all your characters. Plus I have all your books which I love to read more that once! Lol. Thanks for this amazing opportunity! 🙂
I’d love to be a MicroCameo! Having read all of your fab books, I’d be chuffed that a tiny part of me could be in book 8!
I would love to win a MicroCameo in book 8 as I’ve been a major fan of your books since FONY. I’m so pleased with how far you have come in your author journey. Every book you release is just amazing and has me hooked immediately 😊😊😀
Would your characters ever visit a charity shop? I have worked in Oxfam Stourbridge for over 21 years! Rosemary xx
I’ve never been in a book before, so this would be absolutely amazing if I won a MicroCameo!
I’d love a micro cameo in your book! I have just started writing and I can’t believe you managed to write your first books while you had another job. You’re very inspiring and always go the extra mile for your fans like with the Anna Browne story over Christmas. X
This is so exciting would love to appear in between your pages! 📖
Ohhhh how exciting I would love a MicroCameo in your new book
Hi Miranda, I would love a microcameo but even more so for my mum, Joy Way. We love your books and what a treat for her 75th year!! Thanks for giving us such great reads x x
It would be totally fabamazilicous to have a microcameo in your book 8. You could have me flying down the high street gripping the lead of a bounding golden retriever called Winnie or I could be giving someone a hug or reading a book in the park. This is sooooooo exciting. Thank you for giving us all a chance. Wishing everyone lots of luck. X
I think I should get a MicroCameo because your books give me a much needed escape from a tough reality and always put a smile on my face. Couldn’t think of anything better than popping up in one myself! 🙂
A friend gave me Fairytale of New York as a Birthday present. When I started to read it I found I couldn’t put it down. I was hooked, I tracked down the rest of your novels in charity shops and the Library. The ones I managed to buy I have passed on to friends and they are now hooked. Looking forward to your latest novel. Just ordered A parcel for Anna Browne, as I have now finished the others. I would love a Microcameo in one of your books. Love how you get the readers involved. Keep up the great work. x
What a terrific idea. Squeeze me in pleeaassee
I would love a #microcameo as I’m a huge fan of your books. It also would be great to be a part of your sparkly world!
I’ve enjoyed reading your books ever since I read Take A Look At Me Now a few years back. So if I were to have a micro cameo in your next book, that would be awesome! I’d love to be an “extra” in one of your books!
