Friday Fun Facts: In-Person Appearances Coming Up!!

Happy Friday, everyone! There's still another week left to enter my Black Lion Tour giveaway of a $10 Amazon gift card + your choice of any ebook from my backlist, so here's a link if you haven't entered yet: Love in a Book

I'm happy to welcome a whole bunch of new followers on my author Facebook page, so THANKS if you're one of them! I admit to still favoring Facebook over Twitter when it comes social media - it just seems more personal and manageable. Whenever I check into Twitter, I'm instantly overwhelmed by the news feed there. I know other people - other authors - who love it, but I've never warmed up to it the same way. Do I use it? Yep. I figure it's yet another way to reach out and connect with people, but it's not my favorite. What about you? Do you have a preference?

I do believe writers should use the medium that feels best to them, whether it's blogging or FB or Twitter or their website or (gasp!) in person. And speaking of in person connections, I have a couple appearances coming up in the next few months. I hope you'll be able to join me, if you're in the area(s)!

Monday Mentionables: Lookie! More Blog Stops!

Happy Monday, everyone! Yes, yes, I know you've been following me all over cyber-space the last few weeks, helping me celebrate the release of my books - and I really appreciate it! First off today, congrats to blog commented Karen H in NC who won the $50 B&N gift card last week. Hope she enjoys shopping with it!

I do have a few additional blog stops today to mention...and you can win gift cards by commenting at any or all of them! Some are excerpts, and some are original chatty posts by Yours Truly, so do take a peek if you have a few minutes :)

I also wanted to mention that The Promise of Paradise will be releasing in audio book this summer! And I'm thrilled to announce that the narrator will be professional actress and voice-over artist Teri Schnaubelt. I think you'll love her voice!
