Hi Marylee, congrats on Montpelier Tomorrow. Hope it's doing well. I laughed when I read your comment on Instagram. I had my son sign me up for it a week or so ago, but have yet to post anything. I feel like I'm drowning in social media. I need to take a hard look at where to put my time. I still use Facebook and use it the most. I feel most comfortable on Facebook and its where I connect with friends and family. I don't have a fan or author page. I decided I couldn't manage more than 1 page so I just put a follow button on my personal page. I hate Twitter, and don't use it the way I could/should. I just don't get it and it feels to me like you could spend half your life on it and not really get anywhere. It doesn't work for my brain. So I think in nearish future I will try harder on Instagram and Pinterest. But I think if you want to connect with readers, Goodreads is the place to spend quality time. Have you done a giveaway yet? If not, drop everything right now and set one up! Let me know how it goes!

Eva, I picked up a couple of tips from your post on the Oregon book club, namely that Facetime is a good way to join the conversation. I also loved your comments about getting to know your characters better. Is a book ever truly done, or do we endlessly imagine those characters continuing with their lives? Well done! I also notice that you are using Instagram and other social media to stay in touch with readers. Someone told me yesterday that Facebook is passe. I'm curious which social media outlets have proven the best for you. As you can see on my Facebook Author's page, I am just getting started on all of this. MONTPELIER TOMORROW

A group of moms with a book club in Portland, Oregon get surprised by the author whose book they just read:

Hello everyone… hope you all have been well and hard at work.  The past couple of months have had their share of ups and their share of downs but I have managed to write some new blog posts which you can find at http://write-2-be.com/ and even release an issue of my online magazine, http://write2bemagazine.com/.  I hope that you all will check it out and please follow and leave a comment with a link to your blogs because I am always looking for new blogs to follow and even to feature in my Write 2 Be Magazine.  For updates on Write 2 Be Magazine you can also like the Write 2 Be Magazine fan page and become a part of the magazine!  I look forward to reading your blogs!

Wow, what a week it's been!! THE MEMORY BOX Kindle edition was downloaded 27,452 times in 3 days! This post is a thank you note which recognizes the real reason for that success:

FREE Kindle download of THE MEMORY BOX a marriage thriller, today through Thursday! You know you love free stuff! Read this “unputdownable” “thrill ride” of a “page turner” hailed as the “best book of the summer” and a “great read for fans of Gone Girl” (I mean, that’s what I’m hearing…) please consider leaving a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. That would make my day!

This week's blog article at Writing Women's Lives includes my response to one of my students who was sideswiped this past week by her inner critic. You can read it here.
