California Dreaming

I might, might, might, get to promote my book at a book fair in California.
Time will tell.
Fingers are crossed.

Naked Novelist

You have strange things happen when you have a novel out...I had a dream that my mom read the novel and said she especially loved the part about the flamingo. Only there isn't any flamingo in the book.

The piont is, once the novel is "out," there is a particular vulnerability out there. You feel, not really naked, but like a China doll that can be easily broken.
Note the shirt--READ!!!

Novel Trails...one author, one novel, a gazillion publishing adventures

Welcome to Novel Trails...
...who am I and why should you care?

Well, I guess you shouldn't. Unless of course, you want to follow a wonderful, whacky, writer on her adventures promoting her second (non-vanity press) novel from a small publisher.

Let's face it---if you aren't the Stephen Kings or John Grishams, you don't have a promotions budget of millions of dollars, and a lot of promotion is...well, is left up to the writer.

So if you want to follow my journey, get a few laughs, enjoy a good cup of Joe, and along the way learn some promotions lessons as well as some good tips on writing, join me. I'll be posting regularly.
