Foray into a Facebook Party by Tracy Krauss

Foray into a Facebook Party I recently launched my eighth novel, Three Strand Cord, and decided to add a new dimension to my launch day plans. I hosted a Facebook party! While this may not be new to some, it was new to me. I had participated in an authors’ online party before as part of a promotion that one

Leave a Splash … or at Least a Splat by Pamela Mytroen

Leave a Splash … or at Least a Splat I am the last one to get in line when a new product or idea shows up, and if by chance I follow through and try that latest new thing, I leave quite a memorable mark. The last time I tried a new recipe on my guests, I thought I’d killed
