Hi Teicha! Thank you for the friend invitation :-) I'm on virtual book tour for a few weeks, so please join me on some of the sites when you get a moment. The tour schedule is posted at my blogger site. I'd love to see you there. Oh, also, please "like" and "tag" my book,"Dark Sentinels,"at Amazon. If you're willing to review it there for me, let me know and I'll gift you one. I'm going to look at your profile page, now, so I can find out a bit about you :-)
Teicha, We're delighted to have you in 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. We save the wall for discussion, so please refrain from linking to blog posts there, but do add them in the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread.
And we do a live chat every Wednesday at 1EST; instructions on how to participate are in the "Our Water Cooler Wednesdays" box near the top of the group page.
Hey Teicha, My new book comes out Thursday. I'm here but you can usually catch me on facebook. If your set up there you can find me under Cassannadwight. Have a great evening, looking forward to talking with you.
I am honored that you chose to join my group Blooming Late!
I looked over the platform links that you have on your profile and am really very impressed with your work! I am in awe of the patience it takes especially to do geneological research. And the tangle with the names you are having I see is extrmelly hard! I wish you much luck. My family is largely Irish but I married a mexican man, in Az we are considered a biracial couple. So our son is immersed in the mexican heritage by living here and I have taught him as much as I can about my Irish side. When I was growing up I had no idea what I was because my grandparents wouldnt speak of it. When I forced the issue, they would say Scotts-Irish but really nothing. I didnt like that feeling of being "really nothing" and decided to do some digging and found out my grandfathers family grew up when that big Tammany Hall thing back east happened, where people didnt hire or allow the Irish to go in their establishments. Our family were the epitome of the poor Irish since everyone of them were only coal miners from lil up. My grandfather was pulled out of 6th grade to go work in the coal mine. Apparently those Irish were raised to not admit it and to be ashamed of it and if asked were taught to say they were Scotch-Irish because people left you alone when you said that. He had books from then that he kept like clues for me. One explained how we considered monkeys because we were so skinny that you could see the lines on either side of the mouth which meant we were animals. There were signs in windows back when he was little that said "No dogs or Irish". SO it makes me realise how much he must have gone through before he moved west with my grandma to work here in the copper mines. For my grandfathers sake I put the pride back in the McCreary name in how I raise my son. AND I am So glad for the people like you who are encouraging the sense of pride in heritage which I so dearly missed as a child.
And like you, there are many wonderful women in our group from all genres and levels of writing who are a real source of support,encouragement and inspiration for writing. I hope that you will be able to make your writing home with us!
We have many things going on in here and future plans for the group,take a look around our discussions and familiarise yourself with whats going on and participate where it will do you the most good. You dont have to follow any of the discussions unless you find one or two that will help encourage or inspire you. What I do ask of you though is if you would set your settings to recieve our emails so that when something is going on in the group you will be informed with everyone else.
We also have the pages section which can be found directly on the left of the group page. There you can add that great blog of yours, add your birthday, what you write etc. according to each page. But please be sure to add your Facebook/Twitter handle in the page for it right away so that our members can connect with you.
We are starting a wonderful project that is going to expand the promotional ability of this group exponentially and so as time allows we would really like you to "friend" every member in here as well as connect with all of them on FB and Twitter so we can all be connected with each other. Thank You!

Working on my memoir, I've turned to many, many (many many, too many) books with tips on how to get started, organized, and inspired. I also read a lot of what other authors say about the process and will share quotes here, as well. I'll begin…See More
