I am taking the time to let anyone who might drop in to read these lines that I am expanding my presence on social media. Slowly, to be sure, this is foreign territory to me, but I hope to pick up steam as I go along. The first thing I am doing is joining Cold Coffee Cafe, which is an internet meeting house for new and self-published authors who are trying to make a name and place for themselves in the literary world. I am new to this group, so I don’t know a lot of the details yet, I am still finding my way through the isles, as it were. I will be talking about it more as I get further into it. I will be placing all five of my books on their ‘shelves’, and I will be resuming my blog for aspiring writers, talking about the dark and depressing side of being an author — always write what you know about the most — and I will be trying to create one for the cafe, on heaven knows what at this point, but such a presence is part of the membership so I will do my best to make it interesting to anyone who reads it. SO-o-o-o, if any-one has any ideas or suggestions, I would truly love to hear them. I am thinking, at this point, that they will be posted on Sunday, as that is when I have the most time to write, although I will probably be putting them together all week.
So, between seeing clients Monday thru Friday, I am now making the decision to take on more writing work. I am working on my next story in the middle of this new load, but no reward comes without work. If I want recognition, I have to do what it takes to earn it.
Be sure to check out the cafe if you like to tell stories, or if you like to read something beside the same old names you already know. Hey, I have my list of favorite authors, Clive Cussler, Robin Cook, Robert Knott (filling in for the late Robert Parker on his Appaloosa series with Marshal Everett Cole), and anything about our American West and the Civil War (both sides), but I am always looking for someone new and exciting, or with a new angle on the old stuff.
For example, I read a couple of stories by a write names Kevin Hogge, I thought they were goo and exciting reading. Look for his name.
So, I have a lot to say and I better get to getting it said. See you later.
