AudioLark Taking Questions at Romance University

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Today my audio publisher, Jennifer Fedderson of AudioLark, is talking about Listen Up! Romance Audio Books Increase Author Profits over at Romance University. She asked both myself, as the author of Where She Belongs (which she is giving away on her blog post at RU), and Renee Chambliss, the narrator of two of my three books on audio, to pop in and also contribute descriptions of our parts in the process.

If you’re at all interested in getting your books into audio, or if you love reading audiobooks and want a look inside the process, please pop over.

Yes, It’s April

I’ve been so busy writing lately that I haven’t had time for the blog. I know, I’m bad. The proliferation of social networks has made the blog kind of passé, but I like that posting to my blog feeds to the social networks, which is where I get the most interaction with my blog readers. It’s so easy to reply to a blog post on Facebook, etc., why bother visiting the author’s website and commenting there? I understand the ease, and I understand the reluctance to post one’s email address in the Comment field (even though the blog admin is the only person who sees it). I don’t visit blogs anywhere near as often I used to. I used to check several author and agent blogs per day. Now, well, there doesn’t seem to be enough hours IN the day to engage in the social networking that most publishers insist the author needs to do, blog, AND write our books.

No, I’m not dismantling my blog, just providing one of my myriad excuses why I don’t post here with regularity anymore. Also, when people don’t comment ON the blog, it does make the author feel a little like there might not be interest in what I’m posting. Maybe I’m getting boring.

I’d like to say I’m going to make a concerted effort to begin blogging more frequently. And I have some professional changes coming up in June that just might very well lead to me blogging regularly. In fact, I think I’ll put that on my June to-do list.

I don’t want to announce the changes now, because they’re still in the works, but let’s just say I’m entering a new and exciting stage of my writing career. One that will put me in charge more than ever before (was I ever in charge?). Some of you will know what I’m talking about. The rest, make a guess!
