It was my first experience at RT and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's wonderful to immerse yourself with other authors that speak the same language. Who else understands what you mean when you say you talk to imaginary people and they answer you. Jimmy Stewart and his Harvey would fit right in. I reconnected with old friends, met many new ones, and had fan girl moments with some of my favorite authors.

I've also walked out of the cave to join fellow authors on a live chat at Night Owl Reviews. I finally had the courage to request a review of Knight of Runes. My Dear Husband is my 'taster.' In historic times, tasters sampled the food before it was served to the king. My 'taster' samples the review and deems it OK for me to read. He was as excited as I was with this review. It scored 4.5/5.0. It's a Top Pick!
One article is on How to Use Pinterest to Market Your Book. The article by Rob Eagar is very interesting. The statistics in the article are eye openers. I love pictures but when I read a book what I love more is envisioning things my way. But Mr. Eagar clearly states that Pinterest is the 3 largest social network behind Facebook and Twitter.
The other article is Amazon Let's Authors Spy on Reader. The author, Phil Sexton, sees some innovative promotional opportunities for authors. One of which is looking at what someone highlighted in their Kindle when they read your book.
Enjoy the articles. I hope you read the review. Have a great week. Now... back to the cave!
