  I am not very computer savvy in a world of sophisticated high technology machines. I use them only because I must to survive. But I wanted to become a social networker and meet some people with common interests. Although I had a huge fear of tripping all over myself on the web, I timidly decided to take the plunge. And I tiptoed into the water, using my IPad. My publisher had set up accounts for me on Facebook, Goodreads, Twitter and one or two others as part of my publishing package. Now… Continue

Whispering to be Heard

Everyone wants to be heard.  We all want our points understood; our ideas to matter and our feelings considered.  And when we are not heard, we can feel frustrated and insignificant.  If we feel ignored enough times we begin to question the importance of our own points and ideas, which can eventually damage our feelings of self-worth.   

We live in loud society.  The various outlets of social media remind us that there is always someone with something to say.  And all the…

After all, saying…

Book publicity

Many authors focus on social media to the exclusion of traditional media when promoting their books. I've incorporated both in my overall book promotion and marketing. With seven novels published and an eighth coming out in January, I've accumulated some knowledge about working with the media that's worked for me. I've been interviewed by several daily newspapers across the country as well as appeared on radio and television. 

I took a brief break from my blog to guest blog on Build…
