No, this is not about me spilling my guts about a nasty break up. No one (that I know of anyway) is breaking up around here. I'm talking about my blog. Yes, this one, right here. It's time to split it up.
I'm not blind to the fact that there's been a lot of self-promotion lately. I wrote the stuff, after all. There's just been a lot of exciting news regarding my books, Promise and Purpose. Since this is my official author's website, it's kind of the place to be putting this kind of news. And, with Purpose's release coming very soon, there's going to be more.
But I still want to share, celebrate and commiserate with all my writer friends, do blog fests, writer interviews and other stuff not specific to me and my books or topics not particularly interesting to readers and fans (ok, so maybe there are only 20 of you, including family and besties, but maybe some day...). I mean, many of you don't really want to read about the mundane life of writing, editing, revising, researching, procrastinating and, more often than any of that, the wonderful qualities of coffee and chocolate.
But with everything going on with the books and the author side of life, I just don't have room to post here, without over-posting. I have a Marketing Monday post ready to go, but the last couple of Mondays have been devoted to breaking news. I have a series of interviews I want to do and a blog fest I want to host.
Soooo...I'm doing the split. (Not splits. Ouch. No.) Splitting up the blog. After Mr. Beautiful's Halloween Hop and Birthday Bash winners are announced next week, I'll be getting to work. All the behind-the-scenes, writerly stuff will be moved over to A Mused Writer, leaving this as my true Official Author's Website (putting it in caps makes it official, right?).
If you're a writer or have an interest in what a writer's life looks like on the other side, please go follow A Mused Writer (it's kind of boring and ugly right now, but I'll be working on that). I hope you'll still follow this one, too. There will be lots about my books and other communications with readers and fans, yes, but I also plan to discuss, spotlight and review others' books, too. Think of this one as my professional-dress site and the other one as my work-in-pajamas blog.
Before I go... I can't let a post go by without mentioning the giveaways. We're getting closer to being able to give away a Kindle!!! This is not a random drawing that's all scientific and your chance of winning is based on some geeky algorithm. No, this is about creativity. But it doesn't have to be a lot of work. It can be simple. Check it out and join in the fun. And if you like the geeky-random.org-number-generator type of giveaways, there's one of those, too.
