I've been reading through the emails at the bottom of my in-box. I have over 200 emails in the box right now and am determined to empty it by the end of the day. I've saved many emails because they had links to websites and blogs that I wanted to check out but did not have time to visit when they came in. Perhaps I should only sit down to email when I have the time to read and review everything and get back to empty? No more quick glances to see who/what has showed up?
Here are some really cool and helpful links that I've been following today:
Stephanie Ruble wrote out her notes from the annual SCBWI-LA conference. Reading through them reminded me of many great ideas I got and introduced me to some I hadn't.
Samantha Vamos sent me a link to an explanation of blog book tours which then led me to a number of other sites. It took me about a year and a half to get to Samatha's email, and maybe the timing is right since I have a book coming out in less than 2 months! And I will be making appearances on a number of blogs at that time.
And starting today, I will be active in updating my blogs and working to get the word out about The Robin Makes A Laughing Sound: A Birder's Journal, Charlesbridge, 2010--coming to a store near you on February 1, 2010!
