You sure came to the right place, the members here are definitely a crowd of forward thinkers who remember where they came from and are stronger for it! I want to Thank You for joining my group Blooming Late!
I went over your platform and CONGRATUALTIONS on your book just out this last February! WOW how wonderful! I also happen to think you picked the HARDEST type of genre anyone could choose to write and you did it for your first book! Kudos to you!
I also saw your website for it and your Creative Coaching site and think you have a couple of VERY fine VERY well done sites! I like all the activity you have in them and that they are content rich-really good work!
I also see that you are a member of an organisation that is in Az. I am in Az. What part are you in if I may ask, I am near North Tucson.
Now let me fill you in a little about us here at Blooming Late-
There are many wonderful women like you here in our group from all ages, genres and levels of writing who are a real source of support,encouragement and inspiration. I hope that you will be able to make your writing home with us!
Please, when you have time let us get to know you a bit better by posting in our "To kick things off" discussion or if you don't feel like doing an extensive intro then just say Hello" on our wall on the front page.
We have just started something new here too. We have launched our own group platform,we have our own group blog called "The Blooming Late Journal" which link can be found in our Discussion area if you would like to write a post in there and then plug your blog, your book and your own platform.
Then we have our own Twitter hashtag so we can talk to each other in there as well as make sure to re-tweet each others blog posts and important links, etc. It is #BLWriters - just add it to any of your tweets so the group can see them by looking for the hashtag.
And best of all, we have our own Facebook Fanpage under "Blooming Late Authors", please LIKE the page and then feel free to do your plugging in there as well as put things in there that you may find useful or fun for the group to see. Especially when you post in your blog or have something new going on with your book.
We would like it also, if as time allows, you would "friend" everyone in the group in here as well as in Facebook and Twitter so that our groups publicity potential is maximized for all the writing work we do and is seen out there on the net.
We also have a PAGES section to the left of the group wall where you can list your great book and websites links-as well as FB/Twitter handles (which I would ask on the latter, if you could get that up right away so that everyone could connect with you), among other things like your birthday etc.
We also have useful DISCUSSION areas that might be a help to your writing. You can choose to follow as many or as little Discussions as will interest and help you,we don't have any requirements on how much anyone participates but I would ask if you will set your settings in here to recieve the group emails so that you can be kept up on anything important in the group as a whole. On average I only email the entire group once a month.
Also, if there's anything I can personally do, I'll be happy to help with anything you may need.
