That’s it. Planning for good stuff.
It was a most excellent Author Moment. Thank you to our audience and to Vanessa Gregory who spoke of her adventures with creating her first two books. Vanessa is currently in active pursuit of the third book’s input from you out there. You can connect with her project blog by going to: http://dreamjournalproject.tumblr.com/ . Vanessa has quite a retinue of YouTube videos…my favorite- The Writer’s Process – if I get this right you can watch right here. The music was great with Vanessa’s ukelele and voice and Megan Orth providing voice harmony for a few originals and cover songs. We should be doing this again when the 3rd title is released – with tunes, I hope. Great night….here’s the video:
New link to your right….I like it. Hope it is useful to those of you who explore it. If you don’t want to look further than right here, http://www.girlswithdreams.com/ .

To your right, a new link category – book trailers. I’ll be adding as I spot good ones. Suggestions always appreciated. You are also very welcome to create your own trailer and I’ll put it on the blog.
