 For marketing I use different outlets of Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Linked In, etc). I am a member of several LinkedIn groups; BookBuzzr; and local clubs/oganizations to get exposure. I have ran ads in RTIR (Radio Television and Interview Report); ForeWord Magazine; and other local media outlets. I do a lot of radio and blog talk interviews. Entering book contests and blog review contests has been very big for my books.

I enjoy spending time with family and most of all my grandson when I’m not writing. I love being out in the sun, fishing, biking and reading.
