Well, it’s Labor Day here in the U.S., one of our national holidays when banks, government offices, schools and financial markets are closed. Labor Day also marks:
- The unofficial end of the summer season, and
- The beginning of the national political campaign.
Schools are back in session but off for the day, and we all tend to gather at friend’s and family’s houses for an end-of-summer barbecue. There are parades, parties and lots of sports events.
If you’re new here, I’d like to offer you a few links that you’ll find interesting:
- Dress Up Your Author Media Kit with “5 Fun Facts You Didn’t Know About Me” by Contributing Writer Joan Stewart, “Most author bios are more potent than sleeping pills. Fun facts practically beg journalists and bloggers to add them to articles they’re writing about you.”
- Beware of Sharks in Publisher’s Clothing by Contributing Writer Judith Briles, “Start probing before you sign on the dotted line with ANY self-publishing company or expert or whatever. Please, please do your homework.”
- From Fun to Serious: How I Use Pinterest Differently Now by Contributing Writer Frances Caballo,”It’s fine to use Pinterest for the pleasure of finding and sharing images, but you can also use it to refer traffic, sell books, and promote your career.”
Have fun, and I’ll see you back here on Wednesday.
