Summer Wrap Up
I launched Sign of the Green Dragon, and am still alive to talk about it. If that’s not a miracle, I don’t know what is. I jumped into a couple of Blog Hops that I felt I could handle along with my book event, and I tackled two garden projects that were long overdue. But I looked out at my hammock and thought how I hadn’t spent half the time there I’d planned to this summer, and already the back-to-school ads are popping up. So it goes.
That Hammock Awaits!
Some of you know that just before this book launch I signed up for an online course in copyrighting–something I knew nothing about. I skipped through the course, picking out what I needed to give me immediate help, so now I plan to take some time to explore the modules more carefully. I’ve already shared some information with my Email Connect followers and I’ll be sharing more with them soon.
My Email Connect Buddy
Connections with writers continue to keep me writing. A new friend (we actually had coffee and talked) connected me with one of her friends who is starting a Silicon Valley publication for local authors. Because I’m among the early subscribers, I get a full page ad for Sign of the Green Dragon. I love the energy of young writers and publishers, so this is going to be fun. When the magazine comes out, I’ll show it to you here.
Mark Noce, Author of Between Two Fires
August will be the 5th month for my Featured Follower of the Month. I’m still experimenting with the idea for supporting authors more fully and more creatively. It’s not a finished product yet, but I’m hoping I can polish and tweak it as I go, especially as I learn more from the copyrighting course. Oh, and about this month’s Follower. . . I’m going to meet Mark Noce. He’s signing books at a library near me.
Here’s to a wonderful end of summer month to all of you.
Lynda R. Young has a book out this month, so here’s Lynda!
