Everything but a Dance | Linda O. Johnston | A Slice of Orange

 

I’ve blogged here before about the importance of authors letting the world know about our books.  Writers may prefer just sitting at their computers and writing.  We’re more successful, though, when we actually publish those manuscripts we’ve spent so much time, effort and love on and let others read what we’ve been up to. 

The internet and social media help a lot with letting readers know what we’ve written, but it also helps to get out in the world and meet readers and discuss our stories with them.

I’ve been doing quite a bit of that lately—not that I don’t always seem to have something pending. Or just behind me.  I write in different genres, so I’m always busy.

Recently, I attended the RWA National Conference in Denver, where I had a great time—and was recognized for having had my 25th Harlequin novel published.

Returning home to L.A., I headed south to San Diego, where I participated in a panel called Romancing the Galaxy at Mysterious Galaxy, a bookstore specializing in—what else?—mysteries and sci-fi, but they also include romantic suspense and are now branching out into more romance.

Also, in the past couple of weeks, I’ve been on a delightful panel with other mystery authors at the Beverly Hills Library.  And yesterday, I did a reading from my most recent Barkery & Biscuits Mystery Pick and Chews at the August meeting of the Sisters in Crime, Los Angeles Chapter.

More to come?  Always.  Can I tell you about it?  Not yet.  All I can say for certain right now, though, is that it won’t involve my dancing in front of a crowd—fortunately for me and for that crowd.

One thing I wholeheartedly believe in, though, is that writers don’t just write, then promote themselves.  Writers help other writers in all stages of writing, from starting out to finishing books, then getting published, and, yes, then in getting out there and promoting.  So, thanks to those writers out there who’ve been there, and continue to be there, for me.  And if any writer has any questions for me, whatever stage you may be in, let me know.

And, oh yes, I’ll be glad to tell you more about my own stories.

Linda
