I had the great pleasure to be part of a promotional effort just prior to Christmas organized by Jillian Dodd. Jillian had an idea to gather 99 authors together to join forces to promote 99 books all for 99 cents. Jillian’s plan not only included step-by-step instructions for developing a plan for marketing, sample tweets & Facebook posts, but she also planned to include fabulous prizes for bloggers who helped to spread the word as well as readers. It was a WIN-WIN-WIN experience for all involved.

When the song Hard Candy Christmas first hit the charts, I didn’t understand the lyrics. I grew up having hard candy for Christmas and the ribbon candy in particular always brought good memories of Christmases past. And initially I thought the song was calling hard candy at Christmas cheap and a sign of hard times. In a way it is, but over the years, I’ve learned it says so much more than that.

What the heck am I doing revealing a cover for a zombie book? Good question. I was abducted by this renegade group called the Zombie Survival Crew … Please send help! … and pressed into service with getting this book ready to hit the market. And somehow got roped into creating the cover we’re revealing today. Here is the official announcement:

When I made the decision to seek agent representation for some of my work, I started to do the necessary homework. Looking up agencies who handled the types of stories I have in the works, reading about various agents based on interviews, keeping my ear to the ground to hear the scuttlebutt on Twitter, listening to agents in various chats, online forums, looking them up in the various platforms designed to assist the struggling writer in making their selections, etc.

I seem to be on a trend of book trailers at the moment, never mind I started this one two years ago and have finally finished it. This video shows some of the characters in the second book in the Misfit McCabe series.

I’ve been making several changes to my primary website and in the process added the Misfit McCabe book trailer to the front page of the site. Now this is a trailer that I made several years ago, then revised when I changed the cover of the book, but at the time of the revision, left the “old” color and font scheme, meaning to change it when I had a little more time. (Yeah, right!) And that time would be now. I have once again revised the Misfit McCabe book trailer. I hope you enjoy.

I woke up in a somewhat reflective mood this morning and as my mind rambled through various reflections, I stopped when I came to one of the authors I have known for a few years, PJ Cowan.

Today was one of those days. You know the sort where Murphy is somewhere in the universe pointing his finger at you and laughing his butt off. Yeah… that was my day.

Those who know me mostly see the upbeat, almost to the point of perky, side of me. I’m everybody’s cheerleader in a business which is rife with rejection and disappointment — at ALL levels.

The #Amwriting hashtag on Twitter turns three today. It’s been an amazing time. I came to be a member of #amwriting through an offshoot group, #amwritingparty. New to twitter, looking for friends…
