Teaser Tuesday and a Call for Help!

Today is a teaser Tuesday because I’m going to whet your apetites about some upcoming contests as well as ask you to help out with those contests.

But not in the way that you might think.

With two upcoming fall releases (AZTEC GOLD, a vampire novella, and STRONGER THAN SIN, the next book in the SIN HUNTERS paranormal romance series) I’m going to be running some special contests later in the year.

In fact, I’ve already been gathering up all kinds of fun prizes for you!

There will be a beautiful gold Aztec-style butterfly, a silver SONY PRS300SC E-Reader Pocket Edition, Gift cards, delicious Bath & Body Works goodies, t-shirts, hats and books. But I’d like to know from you what kinds of things you like to see in contests and whether you tweet them, share them on your Facebook and Myspace pages, list them on your sites, etc.

To thank you for the comments you post below, I will pick one of you to win a copy of SINS OF THE FLESH and a STRONGER THAN SIN t-shirt!

Just leave a comment by midnight EST Friday, June 18th for a chance to win those goodies.

Thoughtful Thursday – Unsocial Networking

nullI belong to a couple of social networks, namely Myspace and Facebook. Must confess to liking Facebook much more. It’s easier to use and has allowed me to catch up with lots more of my friends. I hadn’t really planned on joining, but was convinced to do so. I’m not sorry that I did, except for what I’d like to call the unsocial networking aspects of both it and Myspace.

As an author who likes to get the word out about herself, I understand that a lot of connections are made for purposes of promotion. You friend people and join groups. Post everyone now and then. Notice the every now and then part of it because at some point the strictly promo aspect becomes a little too much hence the unsocial part of it. Those daily reminders or huge Myspace comments that are little more than commercials for what you’re offering.

It’s okay to get the word out there about your work. People expect some of that when you friend someone like an author. But it’s also supposed to be about getting to know each other. Sharing what you think is fun (or not). Showing people a new side of you or pictures of interesting things. Giving people a slice of your life and seeing a slice of someone else’s. If you’re a friend, that’s what you’ll share with me and I hope that’s what I’ll share with you.

My two cents on this Thoughtful Thursday.

Also, while tomorrow is Fun Friday, it’s also Good Friday. In light of that, there won’t be a blog post tomorrow in light of the Holy Day. Look for me to post the names of the various blog winners sometime over the weekend.
