we all know, times are ever changing, ever improving. When I was a kid growing
up in the 80s, I had no clue the Internet was on its way in with a vengeance!
And in the early 90s when I discovered and fell in love with Sidney Sheldon
books, I couldn’t have imagined that one day I’d have the ability to simply
boot up a laptop and shoot him a hero-worshipping e-mail—which I did many years
later and nearly keeled over when he actually replied personally!

So connecting, bonding and sharing our passions
with each other has never been easier—or more fun—than it is today. I remember
when you actually had to sit down, write letters, lick their envelopes, then stamp
and mail them off to New York publishing houses c/o of your favorite authors to
let them know just how much you loved their books, or even to invite them to a
conference call with your book club.

And as a writer, it’s amazing to be able
to get a kick in the proverbial butt from your readership when you’ve spent a
little too much time in the procrastination currents and not enough in the flow
of inspiration and creativity. As such, RAINDROPS ON ROSES is my first novel in
eight years! The Great Betrayal came
out in late 2006, and since then there’ve been several dedicated fans who’ve
found me on Goodreads, Facebook, or on my website asking whether or not I was still
writing and when the next book would be coming out. I can’t tell you how much those
pings inspired me to pick up my pen, get back in the game and reacquaint myself
with my trusty old muse.

Currently, I’m enjoying the heck out of Pinterest! It’s too bad the site
wasn’t around when I published my earlier novels because creating a board for
the Favorite Things Trilogy has been loads and loads of fun! Visual aids never
go out of style, do they? And so my readers get to check out the characters’
sense of style, the cars they drive, the music they listen to and of course—lots
more of their favorite things! It’s pretty neat!

Now I know there are those who say social
media’s dumbed us down or made us lazy, but to that I say we need to accentuate
the positives and eliminate the negatives! The pluses far outweigh the minuses
when it comes to the convenience and ease of connecting and sharing with
others, whether they be long time friends, family members, or a new reader
who’s discovering your books for the very first time…

Cheers to socializing! Let’s
connect, bond and be merry!
