One focus of this blog: sharing snippets of advice. The other: the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series.
<ROTFL> To be honest, in my quest to get it looking good, I’d almost forgotten. The gals—JJ, Rey and Linda—are so not impressed.
So, lest the ol’ gray matter enters scatterbrained drive again (and Rey’s wrath runs rampant), let me advise that the gals are doing exceptionally well. They’re happily and excitedly ensconced in an upcoming case called “Forever Poi”.
We’ll share a scene or two soon . . . and have a giveaway when the case is wrapped up, and this blog is shipshape and Bristol fashion (I’ve always wanted to use that phrase).
In the meanwhile, if you haven’t already, please feel free to check out their daily adventures at The Triple Threat Investigation Agency Mysteries on Facebook. (I’m sure the trio would welcome a visit or two.) I know I would.
Or maybe you saw, read . . . ?
This may well be a senseless post to those under 40, but I’m gonna do it anyway.
We know that a mailing list is important—a must—if we want to sell ourselves as writers (or anything else).
Another must self-promotion tool: social media. And I will personally attest to this: it works. Period.
One bit of advice: every social media platform has a different audience—with different focuses and interests. Determine which ones best suit your needs/goals.
I’d recommend not spreading yourself too thin, at least not in the beginning when you’re starting to market yourself as a writer or blogger. Focus on a couple only and learn everything you can about them—use them to the fullest. My first choices (and not necessarily yours): Facebook and Twitter.
Get involved with social media groups that have interests similar to yours. They can provide lots of guidance and support. If you haven’t already discovered how easy it is to attract viewers/followers, do so now; there’s tons of information and advice to be found and absorbed. Run with it.
As the [paraphrased] saying goes: you’re only as limited as the limitations you place on yourself. Faith, support, and creativity know no bounds. Either should you.
