I have a new partner in writing. The Woodward Press has done a whole bunch of good stuff in the Detroit area for friends who are writers. Now they are helping me, and wow am I impressed. My latest favorite find.

    • Terry, you have been a catalyst for me since I joined Twitter. Reading your novels and getting to know you online, I felt a real connection. Also, when my first indie novel came out you offered me excellent advice on everything to using Twitter to finding reviews. And sometimes I still ask you questions–you are never too busy to reply. Your model for tweeting about books is what I strive for…not there yet! You make it look so easy:) Thank you for all you do!

    • Glad you like it! I’ve had a blog roll since 2002, and you’ve been on it since we met. I wanted a different look, but didn’t know what it would look like. So glad to have a web designer to bounce ideas around with…I love reading the blogs, and your pretty header always puts me in a clicking mood:)

    • Cindy, I owe you such a debt of gratitude. I remember when searching for a writer’s group, when trying to figure out how to market my first book, when trying to navigate internet publishing…I contacted you out of the blue and you took me by the metaphorical hand and led me to DWW, to the Midwest Independent Book Review, and to some online markets. (Remember “50 Something”?) Your blog posts, like your book, are pure “home comforts” and meeting you in person and seeing your beautiful home was a highlight. And you continue to support me as writer, by asking me to be on women’s writing panels at ROPL and now at the DWW conference in May! You are a keeper:)

    • I like that you all are weighing in here! It’s a surprise to me. Vernie, I’ll never forget meeting you when I was running the conference for DWW a few years ago and at a meeting casually mentioned I had a Macomb based writing group. “If anyone is interested…” I said, as most of our members meet in Oakland. You waved your hand, and since that day have become an invaluable resource and dear friend. Only the latest example of your fine critique skills is giving me the title for my newest novel in the Blue Lake series. Love and Death in Blue Lake is exactly the book title I needed and you came up with it at exactly the right time! I am so looking forward to seeing your Coin of Rulve books in print:)

    • You are so welcome Laura. Just so lucky my son and his family live in your state so that I have lots of reasons to visit and to see you in person. My first introduction to you was though your first book, and loved your story. I admired your sheer courage in traveling alone through West Africa, too. You’ve done so much for me…including airport service! I am so looking forward to attending your workshop next month:)

    • Sharon, we have been through so much together. My mentors and friends on this page have sometimes introduced me to others. Terry Tyler introduced me to Bodicia at A Woman’s Wisdom and Cindy LaFerle introduced me to you. Molly Green introduced me to Laura Zera. The online community has been truly amazing and your posts are like grace notes in my life. So happy you are happy to be here, too!
