Let’s Party Like It’s July 11!

PrintI couldn’t resist using that title.

Anyway, on July 11, I will be with a group of writers on Facebook giving away all kinds of goodies. My giveaway/post slot is 9 to 9:30 p.m. central time USA. (10-10:30 eastern; 8-8:30 mountain; 7-7:30 p.m. west coast).

I will be giving away Brothers of Mayhem cups (US only) and gift cards (US or International). So be sure to type it on your calendar and show up. Of course, I’m sure you’re wondering who are the other authors?

Jade Chandler (it’s her party)
Gillian Archer
Christi Barth
Claudia Connor
Ja Dena
Sarah Leyton
Carla Swafford (Me!!)

Considering what we all write, I have a feeling there will be lots of pictures of good looking men.

Hope to see you there!

Does It Work?

I just finished reading an interesting article (not on line, sorry) about what authors should do in marketing their books. *sigh* It wore me out. So many things that has nothing to do with true writing. There’s no way I’ll do all that. I just want to write.

The most marketing I plan to do is 1) post on occasion here or a friend’s site, 2) tag this post to Facebook and Twitter, and 3) write, write and write.

Who knows. I may never get famous that way, but if my books are good enough to stir up excitement, they’ll do it on their own. My goal is to keep writing and improving each book that I publish (myself or by a publisher).

Okay. Enough said. Time to get back to writing. Time to cause mayhem and chaos in the romantic suspense (action/adventure) world. Someone must DIE!

Change Is Good?

MM900043729How often are we told that change is good? If you work in the nine to five world, you’ve heard it so often enough you want to scream. Especially when they decide to change for change sake, right?

Anyway, I was reading an interesting article about the popularity of Facebook dropping and that the teenagers are moving in droves to SnapChat. Interesting.

I guess that means tonight I will be setting up an account with SnapChat. Even though I don’t write young adult or even new adult, several of my characters are in their twenties. (Lately, they’re even turning up older, like in their thirties. *gasp*)  But I need to keep up with where the crowd is or moving to. All part of being with the readers. They will grow up and want to read more adult fare.

It’s going to drive my kids crazy.  LOL!   “Hello, sweethearts, Mom’s here!”
