IWSG APRIL 5TH QUESTION: Have you taken advantage of the annual A to Z Challenge in terms of marketing, networking, publicity for your book? What were the results?

It’s April Camp NaNoWriMo this month too.
I’m doing Camp April NaNoWriMo. Writing shorts and flash fiction. I am writing 52 flash fiction and/or short for 2017. I am hoping to catch up and get ahead this Camp April.
Fear — Angst This month:

My planning and time management are not working out as imagined, but I guess at least there is effort put in. “Man plans and God laughs (or) Man purposes and God disposes.” A Yiddish proverb.
Where do all the Spotlight Authors come from, I wonder?
Well Jack, those are the blokes who docked in Writer’s Gambit Spotlight in the month of March. It’s the last wave of the month as the tide rolls out. Do you think anyone will roll in with high tide in April?
Don’t know matey, but I slipped a copy of the guidelines just in case. You should offer them rum and song.
April IWSG Author Spotlight is on 5+ Author’s this month starting with our very own…
