Thank you, Sabrina

In this year’s Rita Awards ceremony, the audience watched clips of authors thanking fellow authors who had played an important role in their writing careers.

We’re all in this together.

When RWA called for submissions for this feature, I sent in an entry–to thank Sabrina Jeffries for all she’s meant to me. We were selected to participate, but our clip ended on the proverbial cutting room floor. Since I missed my chance to thank her at the RITAs, I’ll express my gratitude here today.

Sabrina and I write in completely different subgenres, so it might seem like we have little in common. But in our private lives, we share a strong bond. We’re both the mothers of autistic adults. Whenever we talk, the conversation inevitably turns to our kids. How are they doing? How are we managing? Autism is a spectrum of disorders, and parents of autistics have a spectrum of experiences. Yet we can always connect over the joys and challenges of being autism moms.

It’s inevitable that Sabrina and I write neuro-diverse characters into our books. My latest release has an autistic main character–and Natalie’s autism is a key part of the story.  It was Sabrina’s willingness to support me that led to my submission to We’re all in this together. 

Here is my entry to RWA:

I met Sabrina Jeffries through my local RWA chapter. She’s gracious to us all, but her generosity became personal for me last summer.

Sabrina and I were on the same flight to Orlando in July 2017 for RWA Nationals. As we shared a ride to the Dolphin Resort, we become engrossed in a conversation about something we have in common besides writing. We’re both autism moms.

Sabrina Jeffries and Julia Day

Sabrina Jeffries and Julia Day at RWA Conference – Orlando

For the entire drive, we caught up on each other’s children. Sabrina’s son—who is severely autistic—is thriving in his group home. My daughter, who has Asperger’s, was about to move to Connecticut for graduate school.

I mentioned to Sabrina that my next YA book would have a main character with Asperger’s. She offered to help, any way she could. We both laughed about that, since I write sweet YA contemporaries and she writes sexy adult historicals.

A month later, though, I contacted her. Would she read the manuscript and give me a cover quote? Her response was immediate. YES! And not only did she give me a lovely quote, she was willing to promote the book.

After Fade to Us released, there were some who questioned my “credentials” for writing it. I had been reluctant to talk openly about having a child on the autism spectrum, believing it’s my daughter’s story to tell. Sabrina was there for me again with these wise words to consider.

SJ: “Being an autism mom is part of your life, too. Can you feel comfortable sharing that your inspiration came from the experiences of your daughter and family? Can you publicly celebrate the success your daughter has had?

It was the perfect advice. With my daughter’s blessing, I’ve become more open on social media about being an autism mom.

Sabrina didn’t forget her offer to promote. She’s been amazing about getting the word out about the book on twitter, Facebook, and goodreads.

Her actions are exactly what RWA embodies for the community of romance authors. Sabrina has given generously to me through her words, encouragement, and support as I released a story so close to my heart. I can’t thank her enough.

How readers can give back to authors

Loyal readers are an author’s greatest asset–and not just because you buy our books. Any time you share your enthusiasm with someone else, you’ve given back!

Here are seven suggestions for how readers can help their favorite authors–and most of these ideas are free.

Marketing Your Book: Play to Your Strengths

Long before I decided to self-publish, I attended my first workshop on marketing at an RWA national conference. After an hour of PowerPoint slides about engaging with readers on social media, I wanted to hide in a dark, quiet corner with no computer or internet connection. (Have I mentioned that I’m the introvertiest introvert in the world?)

After five or six more marketing workshops with different names, presented by different authors, all of which focused on various social media marketing techniques, I’d had more than enough. So when I saw that the next speaker for my local RWA chapter was going to be talking about—you guessed it—marketing—I wasn’t particularly enthusiastic.

But it was a good excuse to see my friends, so I went to the meeting anyway. And was blown away by the speaker. Her talk was on marketing, but it wasn’t all social media. She talked about things like generating back matter for your book that would help drive reviews and Amazon keyword optimization. For the first time, I realized that there was a way to market my books in addition to the social media strategies I’d heard so much about. And some of those things I was actually excited about doing.

And that made me stop and think. I’d heard a ton of people talk about the importance of “finding your process” for writing, the idea being that some people write most effectively when they plot extensively beforehand, some people prefer to jump straight into the manuscript, and others are somewhere in between. But I’d never heard anyone talk about finding your process for marketing.

I’d love to be a marketing superhero and make optimal use of every single technique out there. But I’m not. There are only so many hours in the day, and let’s be honest—I’m going to spend most of them writing. So I need to make sure that the little time I have for marketing is used most effectively. For me personally, that means focusing on the non-social side of things. I have friends who are just the opposite—they love meeting readers in person or on social media, and can make a new best friend (and a dedicated fan) in minutes. That’s not me.

Will narrowing my marketing focus be an effective strategy for me? My first book came out two days ago, so it’s too soon to tell. But I certainly hope so.

Okay, I also set up my author Facebook page. Just don’t make me sign up for Twitter.

What about you? What marketing strategies do you find most effective? Are there any you find particularly enjoyable or unpleasant?

Whedon’s Wisdom

On May 4, 2015, the Monday following the wildly successful opening weekend of Avengers: Age of Ultron, writer/director/producer Joss Whedon deactivated his Twitter account.







And the Twitterverse went WILD, attributing his departure to everything from him receiving death threats, to militant feminists’ anger over his depiction of the Black Widow character in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. But several days later, Whedon gave an interview at Buzzfeed denying those reasons.

His real reason?    

“I just thought, Wait a minute, if I’m going to start writing again, I have to go to the quiet place. And this [Twitter] is the least quiet place I’ve ever been in my life. … It’s like taking the bar exam at Coachella.”

(Bolding mine.)

“The quiet place.” Remember that place? I do, quite fondly – but with every day that passes, it seems to regress farther back in my memory banks.

In our day-to-day lives, we are deluged by media, by digital media in particular. Between time spent writing, and then promoting via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube, Snapchat, blogs, blah blah blah and whatever the hell pops up next to infinity and beyond amen, the idea of a quiet brain, a quiet place, seems…almost quaint, doesn’t it?

Social media can be a wonderful way to create community, and for readers and writers to connect, but let’s be honest: it can also be tiring. Time-consuming. Guilt-inducing. Overwhelming.

It can also be addicting. Again, Joss Whedon:

“The real issue is me. Twitter is an addictive little thing, and if it’s there, I gotta check it. When you keep doing something after it stops giving you pleasure, that’s kind of rock bottom for an addict. … I just had a little moment of clarity where I’m like, You know what? If I want to get stuff done, I need to not constantly hit this thing for a news item or a joke or some praise, and then be suddenly sad when there’s hate and then hate and then hate.”

Will he ever come back? 

“I think the articles that I found [via Twitter], I can find elsewhere,” Whedon said. “I’ll miss some jokes. Maybe I’ll have to go out to a club to see jokes! I think that’s already an improvement in my life. … I need to go out, do the research, turn the page, see the thing, hear the music, live like a person. I’m not great at that. So, oddly enough, because I always feel like I’m the old man who doesn’t get the tech, right now I’m the man who thinks he could do better without it.”

Whedon clearly had the wisdom to realize he’d hit the wall, and he’s far from the only artist who’s made the decision to disconnect in order to preserve their creativity or their health. Neil Gaiman once took a six month social media break so he could better focus on his writing. Comedian Louis C.K. shut down his Twitter account because he kept regretting his tweets and found himself growing depressed. Actor Simon Pegg turned his social media accounts over to his official fan club because he simply didn’t enjoy digital engagement any longer. Comedian and actor Stephen Fry left Instagram, and briefly left Twitter, saying he felt “hounded” and “unsafe.” Feeling hounded and unsafe is, regrettably, a rather common occurrence for many high-profile women on social media these days – women whose only ‘crime’ is daring to state an opinion in public. 

It can be really rough out there.  

Where’s the happy medium? Where’s the personal “Goldilocks Zone” of not too much social media, and not too little, but just right?  How can we create healthy boundaries, preserving sanity, safety and self, in this era where creativity and commerce often intersect? Where direct contact with readers (and other writers) is not only desirable, but pretty much a job requirement?

Whether you’re a reader or a writer, I’d love to hear your thoughts about the pros and cons, the ups and downs, and the expectations and pleasures, of using social media. Do you have any tips or techniques for finding your quiet place in this noisy digital age?


What I Really Want to Say on Twitter

iHis Forever Girls buy my book.

Truly. I’ve tried being witty. I’ve tried joining conversations. I’ve tried book blurb tours, giveaways, blogging six ways to Sunday, and going to reader conferences. I’ve bought book marks, reader trading cards, given away books, giftcards, and a kidney (okay, not an actual kidney but lots of heart-shaped things). I’ve advertised, helped host Facebook parties, given away raffle baskets and done everything else but tap dance to sell books (and I’m willing to do that if I can find some tap shoes to fit me). But the results are always the same. My book sales are…oh, I can’t even say it….average.

So what I really want to say is JUST BUY MY BOOK ALREADY!

But that would be crass. That would turn people off and then my name would be blacklisted as “one of those authors.” You know the ones – they constantly tweet their reviews and links. Their signature line is eight miles long (with links!) and they slyly slip things in about their books in other people’s posts. Basically they do everything they can but shove the book in your face and beg you to buy it.

Sad thing is, I understand that desperation because sometimes I want to say the hell with it and just post “You people need to buy my book because I want to go to another conference this summer and need some money.” Too honest? Yeah, I thought so.

And there are times I want to tell people to NOT buy my book. Like reverse psychology will work the same way it did when my kids were six years old and I’d say things like “Don’t you dare put this toilet seat down” or “I bet you can’t run get the mail faster than I can.” By the way, those challenges no longer work on 14 year olds. They give you that blank stare than could kill pretty flowers and baby’s smiles. I figure if I say “Don’t buy this book. Nothing to see here, folks” maybe readers might get interested enough to check it out for themselves. But I know that won’t work any better than chasing people with nail files and bookmarks.

I feel like I’ve tried everything I can think of to sell my books (outside of setting up outside the Barnes and Noble, yelling “Come try a real book, whydontcha?” which could possibly get me arrested).

So what should I do?

I already know what you gals are going to say – shut up and write another book.

And that’s pretty good advice. You see, there is much about the world I cannot control (which drives Virgos like me nuts!). I can’t control what readers think, I can’t control how much promo Harlequin will give me, I can’t control distribution, shelf space or foreign sales. I can’t control whether someone will pick my book to review, how many people like me on Facebook or how many people enter my raffle copter. I can’t even control my damn covers. BUT what I can control is my writing. I can control my characters (or try to), I can control my reading a good craft book (rather than watching The Bachelor) and I can control the amount of time I spend with my butt in the chair and hands on the keyboard. That’s it.

Can’t make people buy my book, even if I want to shout on Twitter, Facebook, blogs 1,2,and 3 and from the parking lot of the Barnes and Noble BUY MY DAMN BOOK!

Because I don’t control the universe. Which is sad because if I did we’d all be a size four with perky boobs, gorgeous hair and Matthew McCognaughy, Brad Pitt and Henry Cavill (take your pick) giving us a foot rub…and we’d all be reading my newest book. See? Now you wish I were in charge 🙂

So here’s the premise of this whole post – don’t try to control the world. Just control what you can do (in the comfort of your own home…or Starbucks). Focus on your writing. Make it stronger. Make it tighter. Take it to the next level. Be a good friend to other writers. Don’t steal their thunder. Don’t whine (I don’t take my own advice sometimes). Don’t put the writing off. Control what you can control – which is how you put your story on the page.

That’s it. That’s all I got. (and in case you didn’t get it, this was advice to myself, too)

FYI, I do have a RUBY RELEASE this month and I’m adding the blurb and cover in case you’re interested in doing my will. When I snap my fingers you will go to Amazon and buy the book. 1…2….3… (okay, okay, I didn’t hypnotize you. Add that to the things you shouldn’t do to readers)

What are some promo Do’s and Don’ts that drive you nuts?

His Forever Girl

This forever is off to a rocky start!

Meeting Tess Ullo is definitely a sign life’s improving for Graham Naquin. After their spectacular night together, he knows there’s a lot more to explore between them! Good thing he’s aced the interview that will bring him home to New Orleans, his young daughter and Tess.

Too bad things don’t go the way Graham hoped. That job he lands running a float-building company? Tess thought it was hers so she quits to work for the competition. As they face off in business, he admires her talent…and keeps thinking she’s the one for him. Now he has to persuade her!


Writing vs Social Media: Who’s winning the battle at your house?

Social media was winning at my house. To be fair, it wasn’t just social media. It was anything that required an internet connection. Email. Google searches. Yahoo News Stories. Amazon.

It took my husband pointing out my poor time management skills for me to realize, and I mean ton-of-bricks-on-the-head realization,  how many of my writing hours each day was spent NOT writing.

Two years ago, I told him I wanted to quit my day job and focus on my writing. Being the wonderful man he is, he supported my decision. Fast forward two years:  Unpublished and still working on same book. So, I’m packing for the RWA National Conference in July, and I ask him if he still believed in me and in my writing. This was important to me, since I no longer brought in money and he was paying for my Atlanta trip. He said, “Of course, I do. But, it’s been two years, and I really think it would help if you’d finish the book.”

His one sentence both warmed my heart and floored me at the same time. For the first time, I realized how unfair I’d been to him. He’d supported my decision to quit work, thereby reducing our income.  He paid all the bills, put food on the table, and still allowed me my monthly spa appointments.  He’d upheld his end of the bargain, whereas, I’d failed miserably on my end. I’d not been focusing on my writing.

So, what had happened? Where had I strayed? When I was working full-time, I’d finished two books. Why couldn’t I finish one book when all I had to do was write all day?

One reason is after working for thirty-eight years (yes, I started before leaving my mother’s womb 🙂 ), there’s an adjustment period you go through of not being “on the clock”. But, still…two years?

Another reason is I wasn’t ‘writing all day’.  <Gasp> I know hard to believe.  I was spending too much time online. With the popularity of social media, blogs, and articles on the ever-changing publishing industry, I lost valuable writing time staying informed. Yeah, that was my excuse. That, and I like to support my friends.

See, now I’m bringing my friends into it. I’m not published, as we’ve already established, but many of my friends are. I might get several emails a day requesting comments on a blog tour. Or, to like a their book on Amazon. Or, to re-tweet and post on Facebook a book release, a sale, or something along those lines.

I love supporting my friends, so I try and do my part, but then my ADD kicks in. The next thing I know, I’m searching Amazon for books on growing herbs. I go to Facebook and see that a high school friend has posted pictures of her daughter’s wedding. I’ve never met her daughter, but I scroll through the pictures. Then, I see a family member of hers that I haven’t thought about in years. I wonder, “Hm. What has she been up to?” So, what do I do? You know the answer. I find her page. After several hours, I realize what I’ve done. I close FB in horror that over half of my day is gone. Same thing with Twitter. Not only have I spent most of my writing time not writing, but I have failed in my original goal of posting or re-tweeting for a friend.

Okay. I don’t really blame my friends. I love my friends. I love doing these things for them. They are doing what they should do. Promoting themselves and their books. It’s not their fault I have ADD and am easily distracted.

Let’s face it. It is becoming necessary to self-promote. This is especially true for self-publishing authors and small press authors, but I’m seeing it more in traditionally pubbed authors, too. They run contests, give away prizes, and announce to all of their followers they’ve released a new book. They can post excerpts, blog about their book, and tweet sales on Amazon. The marketing tools are at their fingertips, so why not use them? We may start out writing because we love it, but let’s not fool ourselves. If we are writing professionally, then it is a business.

Ah. Now, I’ve hit upon something. Writing is a business. Therefore, it should be treated as such. When I worked at my day job, I rarely had time to check my personal email, much less read blogs. I stayed off Facebook, and I didn’t attempt to have a Twitter account. Why should it be any different if writing is my day job?

I left for Atlanta thinking about what my husband had said. Some things had to change in my writing schedule. I knew this. Then, I heard Susan Elizabeth Phillips speak at the Golden Network Retreat. I’m paraphrasing, but the gist of what she said was writing is writing.

She explained by telling us that writing is not checking Facebook. Writing is not Tweeting. Writing is not blogging or checking email. Writing is not attending chapter meetings, or having dinner with writer friends. Writing is sitting at the computer and putting words on the page of a story. She uses a timer to keep on task. She sets it for the number of hours she wants to write that day, but stops it when she does anything other than write. If she’s spent too much time doing other things, then she must work into the night to meet her required hours.

SEP’s talk convinced me I needed writing structure, but I also knew I didn’t do well with timers. I consulted with my writing mentor. I told her about SEP’s method, but I kept going back to the day job thing. She recognized I had a five-day workweek hang up and suggested I use it. Every Sunday, I am to look at my calendar for the week, then I am to decide which five days will be my “work” days and which two days will be my  “weekend”. She challenged me to write 5 pages a day for those five days. It was a small challenge, but was what she knew was an attainable goal. Then, she asked me, “What happens if you don’t make your five pages one day?” Well. Um. “What would you have done in your day job?”

That question I could answer. It was a no brainer. I would stay late, go in early the next day, or pick up my pace to catch up. Sometimes, if necessary, I’d go in on a weekend. In other words, I’d do what I had to do.

That’s when it clicked.  Writing is my day job, and I’d just been given a project. Write five pages a day. If I couldn’t write five pages in one day, then I’d make it up another day. At the end of the week, I needed to have twenty-five pages. If that meant working overtime, then so be it. If that meant staying offline, then that is what I’d have to do. Because as SEP said, “Writing is writing.”

There are a lot of writers who juggle full-time day jobs, families, and all the obligations that entails. They still manage to write, keep up with social media, and get words on the pages. I don’t know how they do it, but I respect and admire them to no end. I was never one of those writers. I couldn’t do it then, and I can’t do it now.

I don’t have anything against social media, and I honestly don’t mind supporting my friends by liking pages, books, posting and re-tweeting. I hope they’ll continue to ask, and I hope they’ll do the same for me when my time comes.

I learned, however, that to focus on my writing, I had to make a choice. I could either control my involvement in social media/blogging/emails, etc. or it could control me. I chose to control it.  As a result, I am writing more.

I’m always interested in how other writers manage their time. Who is winning the battle at your house? What works for you? What is your biggest distraction?



Street Teams: The Nuts and Bolts

I’m sure you’ve all heard it . . . street teams are “the thing” right now. Everyone is getting one! But how do you start one? And what do you do with it when you get one?

I’m far from an expert, but I’ve been watching and listening and playing around with one on my own. I also sat in a street team workshop at Nationals this year just to pick up some tips. Additionally, I’m sure there are many other rubies here with much more knowledge and know how, so please, feel free to share your thoughts on the matter in the comments (because I guarantee I’m only scratching the surface here). Non-rubies…please tell us what you know, as well! This post is here to help, so comment with anything you think others could use. 🙂

A Heretic Tweets: Tweeting for Fun, Not Profit!


I’ve always likened Twitter to a global, virtual cocktail party. Depending on who you follow, you can participate in, or overhear, some of the most interesting conversations. But…don’t you sometimes, even while recognizing its importance, get bored to tears with the sheer volume of author promo appearing in your Twitter stream?  With seeing upteen retweets of the same promo tweets you scrolled past yesterday? For me, there comes a point where it all just turns into hissing static.

Don’t you sometimes want to go to a different corner of the cocktail party, hang with a different crowd? Use Twitter for PLAY, instead of for WORK? I know I do.

Heresy!!!! BAD AUTHOR!!!  I can see agents, editors, and publishers chasing me with flaming torches and pitchforks right about now. But…honestly. Sometimes I desperately need a palate cleanser. Something different, something fresh.

With Twitter, it’s really easy to drop in on those other conversations. You can follow whoever you want, and search for anything you want. Do I have a few minutes between day job meetings?  Fire up HootSuite, and see what’s happening in the world. Any breaking news? Who’s been hacked today? Where’s my Science Porn? WHERE ARE MY EMERGENCY KITTENS?!  In the reading/writing world, which books are people talking about – not just mindlessly retweeting? What are they saying? Who’s kicking off a #1k1h writing challenge as I dial into my fourth meeting of the morning? #sojealous

My Twitter use kicked into higher gear when I bought a Kindle Fire HD late last year. For better or for worse, I can now tweet from my living room couch in the evenings, and not just from my desktop computer, my laptop, or my smartphone.

Some things I’ve had fun with on Twitter recently:

  • I exchanged quips about the TV show #Hoarders with writer Amanda Hocking and comic Michael Ian Black. We deemed the episode we were watching “Extra roachy.”
  • Book blogger Limecello and I occasionally snark on #Bones and #SYTYCD together – but we snark out of love.
  • I had way too many raunchy #candyheartrejects suggestions on Valentine’s Day. It’s better that some of those tweets never again see the light of day, but the next morning I woke up to 35 new followers.  😉
  • I’m thrilled that I’ve received several friendly and innocuous (damn it) direct messages from an athlete/writer/LGBT ally who not too long ago elbowed Johnny Depp off my “Top Ten To Do” list. Minnesota recently became the 12th state in the nation to allow same-sex marriage, and IMO, former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe‘s smart, incisive, and hilariously profane advocacy had a lot to do with it. Damn, can this guy write. And he reads! Books! And tweets about them! And how cool is it that Kluwe’s wife asked him to do beefcake shots for his recent feature in Out magazine? Let me throttle back on the fan-girling long enough to pimp his upcoming book: “Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies: On Myths, Morons, Free Speech, Football, and Assorted Absurdities,” his first collection of essays, is coming out end of June 2013. (Here’s a partial index to give you a feel for its content. Language NSFW.)

Does anyone else get a completely over-sized thrill when someone whose work you respect responds to a tweet, retweets or Favorites something you’ve written, or follows you? Thank you, Wil Wheaton, Mindy Kaling, John Taylor, Foo Fighters, Amanda Palmer, and (gulp) the hacker collective Anonymous – not that I’m keeping track or anything. 😉 Foodie and fellow Minnesotan Andrew Zimmern recently followed me after I tweeted “GET IN MY BELLEH!” in response to a picture he posted of some yummy-looking fried chicken. /shrug/ Go figure.

I don’t have a huge list of followers – it’s growing slowly, steadily, and organically – and being I write so slowly, most of them have NO clue I’m a writer…but I guess they’ll find out when they see a very judicious amount of promo in their Twitter streams when I release my next book.  (Novella cover reveal below!!)

Book promo…author promo…just jab a needle in my eye and make it stop 🙂

OK, maybe it’s not quite that bad, but promo is a necessary evil, right? We all have to do it! And who of use really likes it? I would venture to guess, very few of us. So…since it’s likely very few people’s favorite part of the job (possibly NO ONE’S favorite part of the job), I would like to know What Really Works?

I’m sure you would, too! 🙂

Is Blogging Dead?

You know how it goes…

  • You spend hours writing a thoughtful post and no one sees it
  • You’re giving away free books, gift cards, candy and your first born child, and there are only two comments
  • You’re guest blogging somewhere and you have to BEG your friends and family to go over and comment so you don’t look like a LOSER
  • You blog with a group of people and every week you find yourselves scrounging around and to fill empty slots

There was a time when blogging was supposed to be the thang. Everyone was doing it. Publishers were holding seminars on how to blog effectively. Unpublished authors were told it was important to blog and build a platform even before selling. But now, more and more of us are wondering, is it really worth it?

“Is blogging dead?”
