New Cover Coming Soon For Bride By Design
First things first, due to unforeseen circumstances, Catherine Lynn and I have to change the cover of our anthology, Bride by Design. I know. It’s a bummer, but sometimes things happen, and you have to be flexible. I’ll post the new cover when it’s done.
Will Be Experimenting With Videos
I’m nervous, but excited, about this idea, but I think it’s worth trying out. I have a couple ideas in mind. One is to do a Facebook Party for an hour and then move on to a live video where people can ask me questions and get answers directly. The video will be one way. I’ll be the only one on screen, but there will be a chat program on the side of the screen where people can ask me whatever is on their mind. Since I am incredibly shy and awkward when I’m doing new things, I have asked Janet Syas Nitsick to join me because she’s experienced with giving presentations. (Janet and I live in the same town, so it’s easy for us to get together in the same room to do videos.)
Janet and I are also looking at doing some videos over on Self-Published Authors Helping Other Authors. We’d like to start with short segments, and once we get familiar with the chat option, we will start small and work our way up.
In the next month, we’ll be experimenting with a sight I just signed up to do these video presentations. I’m looking forward to trying something new. It might work or it might not. But I’ll never know unless I try.
If you are currently receiving emails from me via MailChimp when I have a new release out, you are already on my list. There’s no need to fill out the form.
If you would like to be notified when I have a new release out, please fill out the form below, and I’ll put the information into MailChimp. I find MailChimp is easier to use than manually putting in email addresses or trying to use my address book on Yahoo. (Long story short, Yahoo thinks I’m spamming and limits how many I can email at a time. MailChimp doesn’t.)
I’m trying to look for extra things to add to the new release email. So far, ideas like a special discount for a past book to use at Smashwords or doing a scene prior to the start of the new release (that won’t be available on this blog) have come to mind. I want to add something special if you’re on my list instead of always putting in a bunch of links.
So if you have other ideas, please let me know. I can only use one idea per email because of time restraints. I still have to take care of the family. 🙂 So this will have to be simple.
I forgot to add, I will only email you when there’s a new release out. I don’t believe in spamming anyone.
