Hey, There.

I’ve got some various reasons to start showing up here again, among those the fact that I do miss it. And some people from way back when on LiveJournal got together and said, “Hi,” online, which made me miss it a little more. But I realized I was tired of the design and feel of the […]

Marketing Monday: Setting Up a Blog Tour & Adding a New Blog Feature

Before I get down to business today, I want to show you a few of my favorite books. Wait, what’s that one out in front? Is it…? It is! Yes, two copies of The Writing & Critique Group Survival Guide showed up at my house this weekend. Did I mind the rain and gray skies? […]

Mary & Robin are encouraging, enthusiastic, and seriously GET how tough it can be for writers to get out there and market themselves and their books. So, obviously, I was very happy […]

Why Blog?

Last week, around the time that Martha Alderson guest-posted over here, she and I were talking about blogging in general–why to do it, how to do it “right,” how to make your blog useful, to its readers and to yourself. So I thought I’d talk about it a bit here. Just a bit, and then I’m going […]
