Where Do You Network?
I'm blogging between raindrops this morning because we're being treated to another round of storms and I'm trying to type with my fingers crossed. Okay, I'm a teensy bit superstitious but I'm really hoping I don't lose power.
Serena's post yesterday on promotion reminded me why I ventured into the blogging world. I'd always been one of those people who learned just what I needed in order to write my books and hopefully get them to an editor who liked them. When I sold, I thought, Okay, put up a website, people visit and get to know you. Wrong.
People don't know where you are unless you tell them and for that you need a social network. Where do people gather these days? Twitter is the latest rage and I have to admit that I haven't tried that yet. Facebook? That place is still a little intimidating but it's on my "to do" list.
I do however blog. I love blogging! I love visiting other author's blogs and getting to know them a bit better. Some of them are quite funny and I have my morning coffee visiting Fran Lee's Examiner page, Three Wicked Writers, and Anny Cook to name a few.
One of my favorite places to find authors I adore is You Tube. There are several good cover trailers on the site, and the promotional opportunity is wonderful. Besides the beautiful covers you get a mini blurb of the book. Yum.
Where do you network? I'd love to come for a visit!
