Hey, there! I know it’s only Tuesday, but today I am doing something a little different. I know that I’m tough with you guys about trying new things. What is it I say? “Nothing great happens in the comfort zone.” Wait. I probably poached that off NYTBSA Bob Mayer. Anyway, the sentiment remains. We don’t grow when we are comfortable, and trust me when I say that vlogging was NOT at all comfortable. And I am TOTALLY bummed that the editing process cut off my T-shirt that said “Geek Chic.” Sigh. What is the point of dressing up if no one can see your fancy clothes?
One thing I’ve always tried to impress upon you guys is that I am not above my own advice, and I will never ask anything from y’all that I am unwilling to do as well. So this is my first vlog, and there will be more to come. This is my chance to say hello to all of you and make that digital kick in the tuchus feel much more special and personal, because it is. I love you guys and want to help all of you reach your dreams. Thanks for your time, and thanks for helping spread WANA-The Love Revolution. In fact, feel free to REBLOG this and help spread the love!
So what questions do you have that you might like for me to address on the vlog? Questions about social media? Craft? Which brand of tin foil is best for blocking the alien transmissions? Throw it out there.
I LOVE hearing from you!
And to prove it and show my love, for the month of…heck it is close enough for March, everyone who leaves a comment I will put your name in a hat. If you comment and link back to my blog on your blog, you get your name in the hat twice. If you leave a comment, and link back to my blog, and mention my book We Are Not Alone in your blog…you get your name in the hat THREE times. What do you win? The unvarnished truth from yours truly.
I will pick a winner every week for a critique of your first five pages. At the end of March I will pick a winner for the grand prize. A free critique from me on the first 15 pages of your novel. Good luck!
I also hope you pick up copies of my best-selling books We Are Not Alone–The Writer’s Guide to Social Media and Are You There, Blog? It’s Me, Writer . Both books are ON SALE for $4.99!!!! And both are recommended by the hottest agents and biggest authors in the biz. My methods teach you how to make building your author platform FUN. Build a platform and still have time left to write great books.
