Buckets And Other Lists: Writing A Book Was NEVER On My Horizon

I’m one of those annoyingly organized people: a multi-tasking extraordinaire who makes lists for practically everything.  When my mental To-Do list tops three items, I grab paper and a pen and scribble away.

Yeah, I know, all of you techno wizards are rolling your eyes:  paper and pen!  How archaic!  I’m trying to convert to using the Note section of my iPhone exclusively, but it’s a work in progress.  In the meantime, there are far more stashes of pencils, pens, markers and an occasional lipstick tube when I’m desperate and just remembered something important than there are iPhones.

UPDATE: The giveaway is closed, but please read on to discover Jamie’s awesome works!

There are a few important things I’m featuring on the menu today. Two have to do with giveaways! Exciting, right? Another is that I had some technical issues with publishing this post, too. Oops! So please don’t forget to read a special guest post from Greg Narayan, and watch his video!

Another thing on today’s menu  is a super-hot, tell-all interview with male erotica novelist Jamie Lynn Miller!  

Plus, Jamie has a bonus for you! Warning: this post contains content not suitable for children. Double warning: it may also turn you on! Triple warning: gay sex is involved, so if you are homophobic, please leave my site right now. I’m serious. Just leave.

BUT, if you are open-minded, like a good read, and want to expand your horizons (or maybe just want to win a free copy of an awesome book!), then keep reading. You won’t regret it! Read More

20 Blog Post Must-Haves is officially available to everyone now! I’m pleased to say that you can get it for free, too, if you hurry!

Let me tell you my story about how this came to be.

Yesterday, I had a guest post published about editing blog posts on a site called Mad Lemmings. Another one, on a different site, was published today on Dear Blogger!

That’s not the half of it, either! The two places where I’m guesting this week are on blogging blogs (blog about blogging)! Imagine that! I’m on my way becoming a pro blogger!

Wait – it get’s better! The two guys who are “having” me have never allowed guest posters on their blogs before!

Yes, I feel pretty special right about now.

WOW.

And having my name appear in close proximity to Problogger’s Darren Rowse is kinda neat.

Meet My Ebook Team, Learn About Publishing, and Vote on My Ebook Cover!

Votes

As many of you know, I’m in the process of trying to publish an ebook.

Writing a book is one small component of the publishing process, especially if you’re going to self-publish, which I am going to do with my first ebook, Terri’s Tales (tentative title).

During this process, there are a ton of decisions to be made, many steps that have to be followed, and numerous people to thank along the way. As it turns out, I need a whole team to publish my ebook, even though I am choosing to self-publish it.

I want you to meet my team, and do me one more little favour: vote on the cover I should use.

Before I introduce you to my team, the first person I need to thank is YOU.  Read More
