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!

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.

Looking forward to listening in on this Sue. Been waiting for it since you announced it in the EJ Insider community. I'll share now, and then I can listen this evening. Got a webinar shortly. :)

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!

Liking. Sharing. Tweeting. Enjoy your Friday Jason. Great post. We virtual talent rock the business world, minimize cost, increase productivity and enhance time management. Oh, there's more but I'll refrain from writing a thesis.

Quick question, I just viewed this on my laptop and the verticle shots are elongated, do they look strange on your various devices? I've been processing the pictures on a desktop and maybe the sizing is a problem.

Wonderful blog. I love instagram and mostly just use it to share gorgeous photos of my home, Hawaii..but I'm a Hawaii mystery writer and need to build readership. A little targeted extra time seems like it could make Insta more useful. Look for me at tobyneal0 :)

Let's see, even without reading the post: drink, drink, drink, act obnoxious, pass out, wake up feeling like death. Promise to never drink again. Forget promise a few weeks later. Repeat.
