I have got a lot of work happening on my new book and I’m having a great time writing. Here is the synopsis of the story:
Anchor Bay – Stormy Love
Lily Brighton was widowed the same day her husband delivered the divorce papers. T
om Chambers ex-wife is an alcoholic who doesn’t understand that the concept of divorce means she is on her own.
Plus something suspicious is happening out in the bay that may be related to the theft and graffiti happening up and down the Maine coast.
I’m at the point where I am trying to come up with a cover idea so I can do some early marketing of the book. When I get a bit closer to finishing the first draft I am going to start Instagram and Facebook author pages. These will connect me with readers and followers so I get the word out about new books, promotions and special contests. I am curious if any of you lovely blog followers are authors who have done things like this and what was the best tool you found?
One thing I am blessed with is an incredibly supportive husband who understands when I say “wait, I’ve got to work” while I’m sitting at my computer. He is cool when I have music or YouTube playing in the background, or when I am talking out loud to myself.
So this little blog is an update, a request for information and sharing a little more about me.

I’ve tried Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, and all I can say is that being on one platform is like a full-time job. I didn’t have the time to maintain them as much as I maintain the blog, so it’s not exactly the best for me, but I can see how growth can happen if I only spend time creating more content for them. Wishing you all the best with your own book and marketing!
That makes sense. I wonder if the blog and one platform are plenty to get the word out? I love my blog. Thanks for the comment.
Hang in there! And yes, a supportive spouse is a necessity!
He’s amazing, and I’m keeping that enthusiasm going.
