I have to admit I've been remiss about updating my blog and web site in the last year or two. My only excuse is that while writing multiple books per year, I've been enrolled in a low-residency masters of fine arts program at Seton Hill University. And sure, I was able to publish my thesis, but it was still a lot of work and I'm proud to have completed it this past week. (That's me in the funny hat.)
One of the other students in the program, Preslaysa Williams, did a presentation on the importance of author newsletters and reader communication. The whole time, I slowly sank down in my chair, in shame, knowing how little I was using this powerful tool. (Preslaysa's great, by the way. Her web site is here.) So I hereby pledge to update my web site, blog and email newsletter far more often. I'm going to try for once a week for blog updates. I'm going to stay with a monthly (or less) newsletter because people to seem to resent getting more emails than that and then report me as spam.
