My first article for The New York Times is on libraries, Instagram and #BookfaceFriday

I'm thrilled to have this article, "Oh, Those Clever Librarians and Their #Bookface" in Sunday's New York Times Styles section. It's my first piece for them, and is about my favorite topic, books! (Yes, sorry sex and dating, my main beats, but books really are my absolute favorite thing to write about, with those a very close second.) Hope you like it, and if you know any… Continue

Finding Your Audience - Part II - Reviews

One of the hardest parts of "finding" your audience is actually connecting with it.  You might know who it is, but you also might not be able to find a way to make them find you.

Advertising is one way, but that can be expensive.   

It is interesting how many freebie book sites are online right now, and even a few review sites where you can submit your book to be reviewed - by an average reader.  As frustrating if not terrifying as this can be, it is actually a good exercise.…

Thoughts Behind Habits of Famous Writers

We are ladies who write. And it would be logical to suppose we read a lot too. Reading a book, we do not usually think about a personality of its author, about his/her motivation to write that book, about his/her habits that helped them finish that writing masterpiece...

After finishing the book, we start analyzing it. And what a big surprize it can become for us when we learn more facts about its writer and realize it was his/her... weird or even awkward habit that helped them…

The Agony . . . The Ecstasy . . .

Imagine the thrill of that first published book: your name on the cover, your words filling each page. Who needs a major publisher to promote and distribute when you are brimming with enthusiasm and have put aside a small sum for travel expenses? My novel, The Bone Weaver, semi-self-published by a small indie press, was going to sell; I would make that happen. And there would be bookstore readings and signings, flashbulbs (we're talking 2001, so no cell phone shots) and fans lining…
