Absolutely Pamela! She keeps us up to date and even simplifies tech so that we can all understand it :)

She is the queen of tech for sure. She keeps us up to date.

Glad you liked it Mary. Yes, Carolyn IS a 'wonder woman' - and an inspiration to many of us who are moms and working from home. Lot's in common I would say, and nice to hear that you too love tech, so all the more reason to reach out and connect :)

It is hard to explain Dennis, I agree. I definitely wanted to explain it in a way that people "got it". Now that might not be everyone's cup of tea about how they want to present themselves but it is for my readers.
Love for you to share it with anyone that needs more clarity Dennis. I'm sure they would appreciate it as well. Thanks!

It’s always hard to explain this to new bloggers I talk to. It’s also hard for business owners we work with that want to blog on their company blog…but once it all works out, it’s magical.
Thanks Adrienne, I should just show this post to them next time ;-)
Cabin Goddess: It does take time. It is a commitment. But I believe it's vital that authors help authors with book reviews as often as possible. We are all in this game together.

Two books a week! That is commitment. Thank you for choosing Automaton to be one of this week's.

I commend your commitment. I have been trying to get myself going the same way. I use and abuse the tours though. They keep me as a blogger honest because I have a schedule I am not in charge of!

Thanks Rebecca, too bad, because we really like it :)

I think Rainmaker is a great solution, but only for a small set of users. Anyone who wants complete freedom will avoid Rainmaker and HubSpot both. I see Rainmaker as a good fit for lawyers and those people who want to write a lot and worry only about content. Those of us who love the flexibility of plugins will always stick with the WordPress core.

Interested how HubSpot will react. Unfortunately, with Rainmaker you need to use their hosting and don't have plug-in freedom. And no multi-installs. But we stopped HubSpot. They want to be too much at the same time we feel. Hopefully, Rainmaker will open the door for more flexibility too. Sharing it anyway :)

Thanks Holly! Seems to be an infected debate. I've already had a couple of "attacks" on Twitter just by trying to define what M/M is. LOL

Hans, this is such a great post--my problem with MOST romances is that they're all so, well, stereotypical--but that's the way the genre rolls. I agree completely that people would do well to try to read outside of formula fiction, especially those of us who seek to improve our craft as writers. Nice post.

A lot of people like and use them Debra. I know a badly written one detracts, but if the prologue is badly written, the whole story will be, so why is there such a strong anti-prologue movement? It all appears to be a matter of taste to me.

I use prologues in my epic fantasy novels. It's a good way to let the reader know what happened before and to understand why a character does or thinks like he/she does. I agree, they should be short though.

I think the keyword here is ACTIVE! These are exactly the fans you should try to attract and thanks for providing your insight. Classic how you termed non-actives as lurkers! I can totally see that!

I just approved three of your posts Tonya - quid pro quo - and see why I haven't been sending them on - the subject of your books is not what my parent-centric community tends to be interested in so I've been doing EXACTLY what I preach...that is NOT meant as ANY disparagement about those books to be CLEAR!

"Snarking" - wow, that's such an interesting interpretation of what I wrote...as for not sharing yours, I do what I asked of others - I look at EVERY post in the stream several times a day - and choose which I think works well for my community...if yours haven't been posted I made that choice. You can choose likewise. All I was "snarking" about was hoping more peeps would take the time to "choose" and most of the responses to that comment have been incredibly supportive.

Bridget Halifax-Stokes was giddy with the excitement of her season in London. Town had beckoned and her season came on the heels of the end of the war against the tyrant. All the handsome men were returning heroes. What better year to come out.
Her father thought it all nonsense. Her mother believed that it would be the best showing of any of her daughters. More lords available and luck that Bridget was just the perfect age.
All is fun and frivolity until Bridget literally crashes into Sir Patrick Hampton as he limps along the high street. A man she knew once well, now a stranger with dark and foreboding eyes.
