I'm at Susan's Today and Quick Notes

Today is a quick one.

*****

I'm over at Susan Swiderski's today dishing dirt on me, Anne Gallagher, and the other me, Robynne Rand in a surprising interview. Surprising because the questions she asked me were not the typical interview questions. But that's Susan. Always getting to the heart of the matter. You should stop by. And no it's not a plug for anything, but I reveal some interesting answers.

*****

If you haven't read what happened to Roni Loren (formerly of *Ficiton Groupie*) about her use of pictures from the Web, you should. It's a scary thought. My advice -- be careful out there.

*****

I've finally gotten a start on LADY CADORET'S LONGING (novella) and if you want to read the first couple of pages, I put them up on my Anne Gallagher blog. I also wrote the next three chapters and let me tell you what, if you don't cry when you read them, well, then you're not human.

*****

Next Monday, I'll share my secret to success in getting to #1 on the Kindle with REMEMBERING YOU. It's not really a secret, people do it all the time, but I'll tell you how I did it.

*****

And lastly, I know I promised interviews and fun stuff, but I'm still in the throes of cleaning the old house and haven't gotten into the fast pace of blogging just quite yet. I went over there last Friday and weed-whacked and let me tell you what, I better churn out some more books pretty quick because I'll be damned if I have to do that again. Two hours, used the whole roll of string, and was in bed the whole next day. I'm getting too old for that crap.

Anyway, hope you'll stop by Susan's. Have a great rest of the week.

Just letting you know Anne, I did a follow up on Roni's post. Just published now.

Will get over and check out your interview.

Hope you're feeling better.

Anne Gallagher said...

Thanks Denise, I saw your post. And yes, I am better thank you.

Linda G. said...

Heading over to Susan's now! See ya there. :)

Yvonne Osborne said...

I'll check out Susan's and, no, I didn't hear anything about Roni's experience. Should I?

Anne Gallagher said...

Linda -- Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comment. That was very nice of you to say.

Yvonne -- Roni talks about getting sued for using pictures on her blog. Everyone's talking about it. I'll try and find the link.

Thanks again for the interview. You did a GREAT job. As for the warning about the use of images, scary stuff. When it comes to copyrights, that's definitely one area where it's always better (and smarter) to ask for permission than beg for forgiveness.

Susan did an excellent job interviewing you! :)

Lydia Kang said...

Weed whacking sounds like a brand of hell to me, too.

Have a great week! Off to check out the interview. :)

Congrats on reaching number one on Kindle. I'll definitely keep my eyes peeled for "Secret to Success post" Take care and all the best on your next WIP.

Really learned a lot from Roni's post last week, that one's a good one to bookmark.

Can't wait to find out your Kindle secret! Off to stalk you at Susan's now...

I'll certainly be back to check out your Kindle secret next week (if not before)
