where to start? I am a prime example of the "never ending tail/life of a book". As I've mentioned here before, I've been a writer for a very long time and have 23 novels still out selling; some as old as 31 years.…"
I've put out a lot of new and older books the last three years (and 20 audio books) and I've found that in many cases the first review I seem to get is a 1 star without comment...and of course that goes up on Amazon rating as a 1…"
"Thank you Zetta for your kind words. I am trying to stay positive and move on with my life, but my brother was one of those special people, a talented singer/songwriter/musician and a good man. His funeral was so packed, it made me cry. He is missed…"
"Yes, as an author we often forget we and our books aren't the center of the world. There is so much more out there going on and we are just a tiny grain of sand amongst it all. My sweet brother was terribly sick with cancer last year and passed…"
"Do.Not.Engage. I read some of that Goodreads thread and part of me wanted to laugh, part cry, and another part wanted to tell that author...stop, stop, stop!
I learned that lesson about 5 years ago when one of my oldest books (from 1985) was…"
"I've been a writer for over 44 years and I've quit many, many times...I always go back to it. If you're a writer, you've been born to write and you will no matter what. Rest for a while...until the urge to create returns - and it…"

About Kathryn Meyer Griffith...
Since childhood I’ve always been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. But I’d already begun writing novels at 21, over forty-four years ago now, and have had TWENTY-TWO (eleven romantic horror, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance, three thrillers and three murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books/Eternal Press and Amazon Kindle Direct.
I’ve been married to Russell for almost thirty-six years; have a son and two grandchildren and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois called Columbia, which is right across the JB Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have one cat, Sasha, and the three of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die…or until my memory goes.

I guess that depends on why you started a Twitter account.
I have two - one for my ESL and one for my book (well, actually it's my dog's twitter account). The book account has turned into, basically, a place where I bookmark newspaper articles that are really interesting. The dog one has a lot of followers and has sold a few books, but interestingly some real friendships have come out of it. Believe it or not, when my dog died, people actually mailed me real gifts and condolence cards. And I know one twitter friend who traveled overseas and met another (both their dogs were tweeting friends).
Then again, I've used Twitter to challenge me to write poetry that's max 140 characters. It's been really nice.
but yes, tweets here, tweets there, and every time somebody includes your twitter handle in a tweet, you get a new email.
Will I be seeing a "My Latest Activity" when you've decided to cancel it??
"I am in the same boat, kind of. Last year, when I took a look at my writing habits (or lack thereof) I decided I didn't make writing a priority, which is why it was suffering. It is a little frustrating because, just like you with other…"
"Wow. Yeah, I mean, really. Why would we really need to "read" a book, anyway? Just look at the cover and make stuff up.
I'm all for self-publishing. Some books are difficult to market and I think we can all agree a lot of…"
