Today's post…

is at Romancing the Blog!

We have a two-hour delay today, so I haven’t taken the boys to school yet. And considering my son and his friend are writing a book and consider me to be their Microsoft Office Assistant and How-To Write instructor all in one, that’s all I have time for today. (I’m getting everything from how do you spell comet to should we be working on the cover art. Umm…maybe you should name the hero first?)

    Okay, I cant’ get the comments in RTB to load, so….

    “I think self-promotion will sell more books, and I think having a guestbook does not a self-promoter make….

    If the only difference between Sally and Wanda was that Sally had a guestbook, do you think she’d outsell her quality crafted author-friend?”

    I was having trouble earlier. :shrug:

    No, I don’t think the guestbook makes the difference. It was kind of a segue into a larger issue of author & reader communication.

    I should go see if I can get it to load now, actually.
