Thanks for dropping by this Tuesday. I am sorry that this is so late but I woke up today to no internet. And it’s not like I can call someone to complain...no can do...see, being in a country where you can’t speak the language fluently can be an issue. So for four solid hours, I without my window to the outside world. This is tough, really tough.
But there’s a flip side to this. I wrote a lot. First, I wrote this blog then I did some editing then I wrote another blog then some more editing. By this time, I’m about to tear my hair out as I hate editing. LOL! The point is that I got a lot done.
Didn’t have a lot of visitors today but I do appreciate those I had. Again, I’m very thankful that you had time to fit me into your busy schedule. I know that life can throw you curve balls that don’t have much give. Writing can be like that too sometimes. Today’s winner is the lovely Fedora. I’ll be contacting you with information within the next couple of days as I can’t promise with the internet issue. You’ll be getting a $10 gift certificate and a copy of my short, A Lover for Rachel. Congratulations!
Today is all about you, the reader. Writing is a lonely profession and many times writers only get to interface with those he or she is writing for is during conferences. Sure, some of us put ourselves out there doing things like this and sometimes more. I mean I tweet...a lot...a I yap, a lot. But there are a lot of times I don’t ask about you, the reader. I want to know about you. What you like, what you don’t like, what you’d see in my books. Then there’s family: do you have any kids? Just getting married or have been married a long time? Just anything you want to share.
Am I demanding this? No, I just want to share with you and hope you want to share with me. Most of you know I have a husband, two sons, two grandsons, one daughter-in-law, two dogs and three cats. Some of you might remember when I had three snakes. Well, I had to get rid of the snakes when we moved to Vienna as those aren’t allowed to travel internationally. LOL! But did you all know I was born in Ohio? Or that my grandmother traveled from Kentucky to her new home with her new husband in a covered wagon? Yeah, interesting stuff isn’t it.
I’d love you all to share with me what you can or will. The idea is to find some common ground so we can forge a reader/writer relationship. Those are the really things that count in life. I want to thank you for participating in the Naughty After Dark Blog hop. Tomorrow is the last day and I do hope you’ll stop by to see me one last time.
If you haven’t visited anyone else yet, you need to visit some of the other kick-ass blogs on the list of the Naughty After Dark Blog Hop. Like I said yesterday, I’ll tell you all my favorites in a special blog after the event is over. Prizes tomorrow are an ebook from my backlist as well as a $10 gift certificate to one commenter on today’s blog. Unless you’re a multiple winner or course...then I’ll be doing something totally different for you! At the end of the Blog Hop, I will be giving one lucky person a $25 gift certificate to Amazon or ARe.
Again, I’d also like to thank these two ladies for sponsoring another great blog hop! Please stop by and show them some love!
