New Jersey RWA Put Your Heart in a Book Conference

Author Jenna Kernan and Stacey Agdern at the NJRWA Conference, 2013

I had a lovely time in New Jersey last week.  I saw many friends and acquaintances in passing with whom I intended to catch up with at some point, but then found myself back at home in my fuzzy slippers and realized I never did see them again.  That happens to me more than you would think.

This trip I focused on social media workshops and got a lot of good ideas on blogging.  Morgan Dormus, from Forever and Forever Yours, introduced me to many great strategies for book blogs including keeping a journal while writing so I’ll have interesting tidbits for readers.  Joyce Lamb, specialist from USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog, had wonderful suggestions on how to contact media and promote my posts. Finally, author Julie Kenner is my new hero for all her sage words on maximizing my social media efforts.  I am now anxious to set up my Amazon Associates account.

I came home with a long to-do list and grand ambitions.  But it was so nice to put on my snuggly, comfy clothes and get back to writing my story that my media blitz might have to wait a little while longer.
