Sadly, Marta has decided to leave the Biting Edge. She wants to turn her promotional efforts elsewhere and we wish her the best. I must admit, her decision came as a surprise. The blog was the brainchild of Marta and Mario who invited me to participate. I was reluctant at first. I wasn’t sure I had the time or the inclination to write a weekiy column. But I’ve come to actually enjoy the process. And I often find myself filing articles away to use in posts—things I think might be of interest To me, the blog was something to offer the readers of my books. A glimpse into my life, tidbits to share on the writing business, bits of Buffy and Joss trivia.
Marta feels the opposite—that a blog should be the vehicle to attract readers to our books. We simply hadn’t built up an audience fast enough. I am probably the naïve one here. I’m constantly amazed/horrified/confused by this business. But I’m here for the long haul and good or bad, I’ll keep plugging along until somebody tells me to stop.
Good luck, Marta. Thank you for inviting me to participate in The Biting Edge and know you’ll always have a place here to share you accomplishments and your thoughts. Please drop by now and then and say hello.
