Here I am

I’m trying like other authors to put myself out there, wherever “there” is. Never thought I’d seek publicity, but it’s part of the job now. I haven’t learned everything I need to know about social networking, but one bite at a time will have to do. Tiny bites, maybe, but they add up.

The one thing I see over and over again about the difference between a published and an unpublished author is that the published author didn’t give up. I cleared the publishing hurdle during the Emerald Coast Writers'(ECW) Conference this year with my first place contest winning short story about the Easter Bunny. You can read The Good Hare Day on my website or on the ECW website.

With husband and youngest son off at a Scout campout, I’m working on the publicity and wishing I was camping too. Not. I like the hiking part, not the sleeping on hard ground part. But dutch oven cooking? Mmmm. Okay, now I’m hungry. Gotta go scout out some food.

  1. Yeah, I mean Jane Austen would have freaked if she had to market her book! Well, maybe not. She didn’t seem like the fragile type…She wrote and edited her manuscripts with pen and paper (and not even a Papermate pen for crying out loud!).

    By the way, I love the design of your blog.
