After Thanksgiving Turkey Talk

Hey everyone, I hope you had a fantastic holiday with your loved ones and ate tons of turkey! I know I did.

I’m not the speediest at updating my blog but that is going to change right now. It’s high time I kept you all in the know on me, my writing life, my writing friends and more. In the coming months you’ll see guest bloggers, links to writing related sites and other writers, and info to keep you in the know.

I am ending this month with a promise to do just that. As such I’ve included a few sites that are near and dear to me. First and foremost, the Greater Detroit RWA website . This is my home RWA chapter. And I am now in my final year as President. I have been on the board for a total of 11 years, not all in a row though. Egads!! This will also be my final year as the Booksellers Best Award Chair. While I love both the chapter and the contest we sponsor for published authors, it’s time for me to take a backseat and heckle the new board from the crowd (G) and turn the reins over to another competent chapter member for the BBA. But don’t worry; neither event will take place till September of 2009.

Another link that is very near and dear to my heart is this one - Once there, I also click on the other tabs and do the click through to give free food, mammograms, books, whatever is there I'll click on it.

And of course you can’t forget this holiday timewaster. (G) I know I have spent more than my fair share of time on this one. I have made it to Level 3, but only twice. (G)

Ok, ok, I get the message. What about the other important sites out there? I frequent all my favorite writer’s sites, I frequent the agent’s websites and I also pop in and out at the publisher sites as well. But in the past month this is where I’ve been checking things out. For news on Harlequin and Silhouette books A GDRWA author and friend A GDRWA author and friend Lucy spoke at our GDRWA chapter in Sept 08 I am a big fan of Lucy’s Harlequin Presents This is my publisher’s website This is also my publisher’s website. Agent website Agent website A new and upcoming author Love the auction Brenda runs in the spring each year A dear friend with her debut release out now Lie To Me

I could list hundreds more for you to explore, but I also know that you all have favorite sites of your own that you visit on a regular basis. Drop me a note and let me know what they are. Sharing is a good thing.

Well, to all my near and dear writing friends out there, I’m off to write. Playing is fun but it doesn’t pay the bills. At least I haven’t found a way for it to do so. Take care everyone.
