8 Reasons to Sign Up For Misfits and Daydreamers

Posted by Charlene // Tags: , ,
A few weeks ago, I looked at my twitter and saw a ton of notifications.  What was going on?  This was not normal.  But this was how I found out that I was picked to join the Truthwitch street team!  Truthwitch by Susan Dennard is coming out in January, and looks to be an exciting fantasy with echoes of The Last Airbender with elemental witches and an epic friendship at it's heart.  I haven't read it yet, but I'm dying to because it sounds amazing, and I'm so happy to be a part of the street team!

This is my first time participating with a street team actually, so I'm not sure what to expect, and it has just barely gotten started, so I really look forward to what's in store.  So far, the members - or Witchlanders - have been sorted into different "clans" which are all represented by an element.  I'm in the Water clan (woot Waterwitches!) and we decided to put together this post of reasons why you should sign up for Susan Dennard's wonderful newsletter "Misfits and Daydreamers" which has so much cool info!  The Misfits stand in for Susan's readers, while the Daydreamers are for the writers.  It's truly something I look forward to reading every week, and not just because I'm in the street team!  So please read on to see why you should sign up, and to meet some awesome bloggers!

And as an aside, if you are interested in Truthwitch and would like to be a part of the street team, signing up for the newsletter will give you information on how you can be picked to join in the future!  We're all a cool bunch! :)

Fangirls ought to stick together, and fortunately, Susan Dennard is one of us. It’s so great to read about her authorly process as well as her awesome writing tips, but I really enjoy getting a glimpse of the things she enthuses over. For instance, I very much appreciated her picture of the Outlander cast from San Diego Comic Con! (Who wouldn’t appreciate that though??) Music and video games can also get a spotlight. It’s a personal and fun touch to an already wonderfully informative newsletter!

What drew me to sign up for the Misfits & Daydreamers newsletter was actually two things: Susan Dennard is an amazing person and fabulous writer, so why wouldn't I sign up?! But also, the title is splendid! Underneath our complex layers, we're all misfits and daydreamers. It is delightful and inspiring to be able to peer directly into the mind of a writer, especially one as fun and energetic as Sooz! Exclusive content and writing advice are precious gifts, but being able to read more than just the author's books and stories is priceless.
(+ a bonus reason - Olivia was able to post for today!)

Olivia blogs at The Candid Cover. Most days she can be found with a book in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other. Her other hobbies include cycling and swimming. Fangirling over numerous authors that she equates as rockstars consumes most of her time. If you would like to fangirl with Olivia, pop over to her blog at The Candid Cover.

I absolutely love receiving Sooz’s Misfits and Daydreamers newsletter! First of all, there are always sneak peeks included in each week’s installment. Who doesn’t love getting an exclusive look at an excerpt over even a map that will appear in her upcoming book? Also, although I am not a writer, I have seen many writers thank and compliment Sooz for her various tips and tricks that she uses in her writing process. This is a real testament to the dedication and amount of love that Susan Dennard pours into each of her novels. So what are you waiting for???
