Isabel, Welcome to the novelist group! You might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. And we do a live chat every Wednesday; hope you can join us for that!

Hi Isabel,

 

Thanks for friending me here :) I try to stop by as much as possible, but I'm most active on my blog,http://www.rainyofthedark.com which is geared toward blogging, promoting, and writing. It also offers interviews for both authors and reviewers, guest blogging opportunities, blog rolling, etc. All the details can be found under the “community” tab on my blog.

 

For social networking, I prefer Twitterhttp://www.twitter.com/rainyofthedark (I follow back) and Goodreads http://www.goodreads.com/rainyofthedark. And I can be reached directly by email: rainy AT rainyofthedark.com.

 

Take care,

 

Rainy
