If Stationary Objects Can Network...

Then I can too...

As many of you know, and for those of you who don't, a couple weeks ago, I created an another FB page (Author La Kata EK). I created this page to network with other authors and to make myself more accessible to my fans. Needless to say, the idea was a great one! Since then, I have made multiple connections and these connections are all helping to mold my writing career into a successful one.

First, there was, Allysa Hart. She is a fellow author and the creator of Allycat Creations, as well as  the designer of the new cover to my upcoming book. I am beyond pleased with her work and excited to reveal the cover to the public!

Speaking of revealing the cover...

Second, there was, Renee Harless. She is a fellow author as well. She has an upcoming novel to be released soon and decided to create an event on FB to debut her cover. She posted a status asking if any other authors would be interested and I mentioned that I would, so she contacted me and now I will be debuting my cover as well during her FB event! My cover reveal time is 9PM to 930PM on November 22nd!

I am excited and nervous all at the same time. To me, this is something beyond major for me. I have spent the last few days purchasing various "author swag" to give out during the event. Now, I am tasked with trying to think of multiple games and conversation pieces just to ensure that those attending all have a good time. Part of me wants to flake out, but the larger part of me knows that I have wanted this more than anything that I can currently think of and I'm going to claim what is mine.

I have also developed a connection with another fellow author named, Christa Lynn. These three individuals (aside from my close friend and fellow author, Raven St. Pierre) have been extremely patient and supportive when I've had various questions for them at random hours. If they are not aware of how much I appreciate their patience and their kindness, I hope they are now.

Creating my more "public" FB profile was probably the best decision I could've made for my writing career. Hopefully, I develop more lasting connections like the ones that I have recently made.

"Secrets" coming 2017.
