#IGWritersOct Week 4+!

I decided to participate in this super fun Instagram challenge for the month of Oct called #IGWritersOct! Every day of Oct, we're given a new prompt about our books, our inspirations, our writing preferences, and more :) Then we post a photo along with a fun caption!

If you want to get the daily update/post, you can follow me on Instagram (@KaitlynDavisBooks), or I'll be posting weekly updates here on my website.

And now, last up, here's week 4+!


#IGWritersOct Day 22 - Your #WIP

I just sent #StolenGoods off to my beta readers! Excited to hear what they think! And while the manuscript is with them, I’ll be outlining the third and final book in the #ToCatchAThief series, Off the Grid πŸ’•πŸ€žπŸ‘©‍πŸ’» #bookstagram #amwriting #authorlife


#IGWritersOct Day 23 - Writing Drinks

The only thing I drink while writing is coffee, but that’s boring, so I’m reposting this awesome #bookstagram by @thebookwormdrinketh instead! It’s the first time I’ve ever had a signature cocktail selected for one of my books, so cool! 🍾πŸ₯‚πŸŽŠ

#IGWritersOct Day 24 - Literary Fun

We are getting wild and crazy with some #bookspinepoetry! Let me tell you, we authors know how to have a good time! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ But really, I’ve always wanted to try this and today’s prompt seemed appropriate!
A shadow bright and burning
A torch against the night
Winds of fury
Winds of fate
Before I fall


#IGWritersOct Day 25 - Lazy Writing Tip

Give yourself time to recharge and be lazy if you need it 😊 Whenever I finish a manuscript, I take the next day either entirely off or very easy, just to give my mind a break! Listen to your body, sometimes a little time away does wonders 😘😘 #writingtips #authorlife #authorsofinstagram #amwriting


#IGWritersOct Day 26 - Character Inspiration


My devilish thief-on-the-run Thaddeus Ryder and his daydreaming cake designer (and accidental kidnappee) Addison Abbot! Inspiration boards for the two leads of my upcoming #romcom#StolenGoods! πŸ’—πŸ€©πŸ’—


#IGWritersOct Day 27 - Your Office

I call this, “how to take a photo of your desk when your bookshelves are currently a disaster” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ But seriously, the beauty of a secretary desk is I can just close the lid and voila, clean! #wherethemagichappens #authorlife #bookstagram


#IGWritersOct Day 28 - Writer Friends

One of my good friends, @mgarciawrites, has an AMAZING book going on sale in Nov! She’s got a fab pre-order campaign and all the details are below πŸ˜΅πŸ˜πŸ™Œ

⭐️4 decals ⭐️Signed bookmark
⭐️Signed bookplate
PLUS if you order w/ @wordbookstoresyou'll get a signed & personalized copy! For details visit the link.


#IGWritersOct Day 29 - Rejections

I love photography! It’s something I do just for me, not to share, because I enjoy it—and sometimes, I like to think of writing the same way! Even though one is a hobby and one is my career, art is art and it’s something highly personal. Every one of my books has received a 5-star review, and every one has received a 1-star review. It’s impossible to please everyone! Rejection is just part of the job. But I write for me, I write the stories of my heart, which makes it a lot easier to embrace the love my work receives and shrug off the rest 😁😁 #authorlife #authorsofinstagram


#IGWritersOct Day 30 - Spooky Writing Tale

Once upon a time, an innocent author was out on a walk, minding her own business, when a zombie broke out of the ground and snatched her book! πŸ˜±πŸ‘»πŸŽƒ Only one day until Halloween, and I have a spooktacular surprise—the entire #MidnightIce series is now #freeinKU! Yay! πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ Happy reading!


#IGWritersOct Day 31 - October Wrap Up

πŸŽƒ HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! πŸŽƒ My #MidnightFire covers were made for this holiday πŸ‘» If you’ve never read them, Ignite is currently #free wherever ebooks are sold!

Today is also the last day of #IGWritersOct and the theme is October Wrap Up! This month, I finalized the manuscript of Stolen Goods and sent it off to my beta readers, I outlined Off the Grid, I continued work on a secret little side project, and finally, I checked a number of marketing things off my list! Big month, but they always seem to be, lol!


Thanks so much for following along! I hope you enjoyed this October Instagram challenge as much as I did :)

Now onto November and Thanksgiving! The holiday season is here!!!
