This is for all of my followers. I noticed I lost some people and I'm sad, because I realize it is because I haven't posted since the middle of September. I'm not really sure why that is happened, except to say my real life became too hectic and suddenly a whole month had gone by and I haven't posted.
Also, my writing life has been very busy too. The manuscript I was editing came back to me from the author who had rewritten it. So now I am in the middle of editing this again. Plus, on September 27th I got the happy news that I was going to be doing a book signing at the Fairfield University Bookstore on December 8th. The other thing is I just finished doing a workshop in the FORUM of the Muse Online Writers Conference for four days. All of this plus my own crazy life caused me to ignore my blog.
These are not excuses, but I apologize for not posting and I hope you will all forgive me. However, I have found a place for free book promotion that you are going to love and I give it to you as a present. An author friend of mine who I trust gave me the link and though I was skeptical at first, I am very pleased to let you know about this. I went there and there is a fairly long process to list your book, but it is worth it. I am promoting it here, because it helps you to do that.
The website is called Ask David and here is the link: http://askdavid.com. When you get there you will see: Latest Reviews and Book Promotion (Add Your Book Here) Click on the words in the parentheses and you will see the whole thing explained. Hope to see you there!!
One other thing before I end this post. I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with what is happening to Minnie Mouse. A store here in Manhattan decided that Minnie Mouse needed to be taller and way thinner. So they are putting a new and improved Minnie Mouse into their Christmas windows. The store, Barney's, sees no problem with this. However, thank goodness there are people looking out for today's youth and they have a petition you can sign if you agree with me that this is ridiculous and dangerous for girls as a role model. This new Minnie Mouse will be 5'11 and wear a size 0. Since body image is part of my book I think it is my duty to let people know about this. I signed the petition and I hope you will too.
Until the next time. I will have Kate Lynd/ Amy McCorkle on this blog on October 25th.
I write about events that happen to me and around the world from a writer's point of view. Nothing in my life ever goes smoothly. My focus is on young adult and children's authors, but occasionally I will bring you an adult author. It is my pleasure to introduce new books and authors to my readers. Writing is my life!
