A Change of Season
Seasons do not gently flow one into the other here in Colorado. It's summer and then overnight, the trees change, the air becomes sharper and snow caps the mountains. I left for San Diego and it was one season, came back and it was another. I just turned on the old heater and humidifier. 67 degrees in the house when one is stationary trying to write is too damned cold.
Anyway, caught the season premiere of Heroes on NBC
. Interesting premise and I'll probably watch it again, though there were so many characters introduced this first episode, it seemed a little disjointed to me. "Ordinary people with extraordinary talents" is the way it's pitched. Not too original, but we'll see what they do with the theme.
Seems the newest innovation in book promotion is the trailer... like for the movies and TV. For a look at a couple, go to Colleen Coble
or Teresa Slack's
websites. If you are interested, one company doing it is Ombience
. Click on author services. No endorsement, for the company or the authors, just some examples from a list I'm on. I have no problem with the concept, and have no idea of the cost, but sometimes it seems we writers have to spend so much time and money on promotion, I wonder if it's worth it.
Still haven't mastered adding a picture to the blog. I marvel at how easy it seems for Marta and Mario. I'm using Firefox now and can add links, but pictures
still evade me. Oh well, maybe soon.
I second Mario's comments about Lynda. She is a dynamo and nice to boot.....
