What a week!! I missed my post last week due to Christmas and now here it is a week later...New Year’s Day!! A new year—a fresh start!! But first let me tell you how the year ended for me.
It was a busy week, first Christmas—had a great one even if it was slightly chaotic (check out my latest post on my blog if you want to know just how chaotic!! And no, no orbs in any of the pictures.) Then I had a bunch to do to get ready for...ta da...the release of THE WITCH’S GRAVE on the 30th! As a result of all this work, I now have a Yahoo group (anyone interested in joining check out it out. Love to have you!); a MySpace page (it’s thanks to Angie and Dorine at Millennium—I tried setting it up myself—not so good!); and was targeted as a spammer!
Now how, you might ask, did I get accused of spamming?? Well, it seems if one sends out too many emails a day, MSN automatically assumes that you’re spamming. Since I tried to email over 600 newsletters to people on my list, I kind of sent up a few red flags on MSN and they shut me off for twenty-four hours! With no access to email, I felt like I was going through withdrawal!! Here the book was out and I couldn’t email anyone!! Talk about frustration! Ah well, now that I have the Yahoo group set up, I’ll never again have to go through that. From now on, all newsletters will be sent via the group. (BTW—if anyone on this blog has signed up for one of my sporadic newsletters and didn’t receive it...please let me know!!)
On to more important stuff—who won a copy of THE WITCH’S GRAVE from my post on 12/18? Caffey!! (Send my your mailing address firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll get a copy off to you!)
Okay, let’s give away one more copy. (I promise I won’t miss posting the winner next week! ;) ) So what should the question be??? Everyone’s talking about New Year’s resolutions, and though appropriate today, I personally try and avoid them!! (For me, they’re just a ticket for a guilt trip!! 8) I never seem to follow through with them.) How about this instead...what’s on your “to be read” pile...and no, you can’t mention any of our books! (Of course we hope you do have them, but let’s hear about some authors not mentioned here yet. 8) I’m always looking for new books to read...they’re a great way to beat the winter blahs!) Share yours and your name will be entered in the drawing!
That’s it for now—I wish everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2009!!
