Promoting

Family/Friends:

In keeping up with my goals for this year, I've been writing every day sometimes for an hour sometimes a lot more.  The investment in time is paying off greatly as I've compared my early stories to the stories I've recently written and I can see a significat improvement. 

Also, just this week I sent a letter of 'promotion' to a select few family and friends.  This was my way of introducing my material to folks who are not yet acquainted with my work.  I will be checking my website on Sunday to see if traffic to the site spiked.  Wish I could have an opportunity like Gov. Jan Brewer...little humor there.

For now, I'm signing off.  Have a good weekend and be well!

PS: This Blogger site looks somewhat different than it the last time I logged in. That's what happens when you turn around for a second :-)

Trafficking

Family/Friends,

My head is spinning from having worked over an hour in trying to get traffic to my site, Google and Bing/Yahoo...copy CNAME or add HTML tag to my browser and so on and so on. Pheww!

Anyway, so until I get all that squared away, you my family and friends can help. If you know others you'd enjoy reading the stories I write, please forward my links (including this blog).

Much appreciated!
Until next time, be well...Maria

Submissions

Family/Friends,

In the past few days I have been busy submitting my short stories to several eBook Publishing firms for consideration. My next step will be to submit a story to Smashwords (5K-1/31 deadline) & Ellora's Cave (25K words-3/31 deadline) respectively.

Stay tuned for further updates...until then!

2012

Family/Friends: Happy new year to you all!

I start off this new year by implementing a goal: write everyday. I also want to be much more active in updating my blogs (this one and Triond) and be much more active on Twitter as well.

I ask that you visit my site www.mywritingden.net as often as possible and pass on my links to others who may wish to read my stories, it'd be much appreciated.

Be well!

Maria
