If you're a writer, you write, right? Or if you can get past your shyness, maybe arrange some booksignings, too.
Lately, I've been finding myself doing something totally different ... something that some writers might actually enjoy.
And yeah, I'm one of them... I enjoy it.
No, not that.
Anyway, it's speaking.
I like speaking.
Put a microphone in my hand and it's like, well... no, not that ... but not too far off.
I gave a presentation in September for a credit group, and a few of them enjoyed it so much they asked me to do an encore for another group they were in. Then in January, I will do a half day presentation to another large organization.
Then the best one ... in April I will be the keynote speaker for a nine-high school writing contest, plus I get to hold two humor workshops.
Yeah, about the only thing better than speaking is speaking to a bunch of high school kids.
And with my first YA humor/vampire book coming out next year, I'm going to try to arrange as many school events as possible.
On another front, I finally succeeded in setting up PayPal so that I can sell AUTOGRAPHED books on my website! Just in time for Christmas!!
