Two years ago this February, I set up the page Because authors are supposed to have Facebook pages, right? I wasn't sure what would happen. I think that in the beginning I assumed that thousands of people would be clambering to "like" this page despite the fact that I was a new author whom no one had ever heard of.

But it wasn't like that at all. The first people to join me here were friends and family. People whom I know personally. But then something began to happen. Slowly, over time, new people began showing up. Some of them were bloggers. Some of them were other authors. Some of them were people who enjoyed their "journey" through the portal so much that they wanted to drop on by to see what else I might have in store for them.

Now there are 424 of us here. I've gotten to know some of you personally, and it's been great having your support in my own "journey" of writing. You all are wonderful people, and I thank you for being here.

When we reach Lucky Number 500, I would like to show my appreciation for you all by giving away a copy of both The Land Beyond the Portal and Vapors, my two published works. But ONLY when we reach 500. Do you know what this means? It means I am putting you to work. That's right. In order to get to 500, I need YOU to share this page ( with your fellow bookworms encouraging them to join. Share it on Facebook. Share it on Twitter, Goodreads, and Blogger. You can even share it in your company break room. Think you can do it? (It might help to remind your fellow bookworms that liking the page will vastly increase their odds of winning said books.)


  1. Building the platform...lots and lots of work! But sounds like you are building your audience, exciting!

    1. Amen about the lots of work! :) And yes, it *is* exciting! Thanks for dropping by!
