Couldn't be more off topic...

If you want to consider something completely off topic for a few minutes, feel free to look at the lastest post on my blog. Maybe you've got a few parts too many.

Oh, and click the Bookselling tab if you want something on topic.

Gip, I love reading your blog.   It always brings a smile.   Keep on!!!!   

Have you heard of NaNoWriMo ?..... It's a writing site that every November there's a contest to write a novel in 30 days.   50,000 words.   You might like to check it out.   It stands for November National Writing Month.    It's a real deal, not a joke.    I wrote 12,000 words, but I could have done more if I had applied my self.     It's fun and the challenge is just what some writers need.   I am still working on my novel now and then (I love it).    The main thing is November, but through the year there are other things.

Thanks for the kind words and information.

If you're interested in getting each new post on the blog (a couple of times a week usually) by email, go to the blog and click the Email button at the top of any page. That will keep you informed.

Padre, it was me talking about the Facebook `advertising.'  It isn't so much direct advertising as it is a fan page that my store provides, along with general book conversation and other stuff. I do offer coupons and links through there and it is driving traffic to my Alibris and Ecrater sites.

Here's a link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Elsie-MI/Sofaslugs-Books/179159598464?ref=mf

thanks, slugs.   I'll check it out.   I was looking at Facebook yesterday...it looks like fun, but I have a huge family and everyone and their grandmother is on, and I spend too much time playing on the computer as it is.   Roll Eyes     Thanks for sending me the link.

well!!   I did check out the link you sent.   It's a wonderful page.   I'm impressed.   Maybe I will take a closer look at Facebook.   

I see you featured Robert Heinlein.   When I was a teen and young mother I read everything he had written, and most other science fiction as well.
