19 Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts You Might Find Helpful

I was glued to CNN yesterday. I didn’t want to miss a second of the coverage of President Obama’s inauguration. Although I am a life-long Democrat, I would still have watched the coverage if the newly elected President had been a Republican. I’m a news junkie, especially when the news is history-making. And, yesterday certainly was history-making.

For a romance writer, the obvious love the President and Frist Lady have for each other is inspiring! So inspiring that today I’m rushing back to my story. Elliott and Meredith are yelling, “Our turn.”

An author friend, Casey, and I just launched the Megaphone Society in late November. From the site: "The Megaphone Society is a community of writers and authors who mutually support, critique and encourage one another. We are writers of all genres, levels of experience, authors who self–publish and those who go the traditional route."

We've been writing a January series on Blogging Best Practices and plan to focus on Facebook in February.

Love some feedback. Thanks!
