Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Karen. You seem like an interesting person and quite an accomplished author as well, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed

Harlequin Books Hi Karen, I'm pleased to meet you and look forward to discussing books with you. If you ever have any questions about any of the titles on my shelves or about eHarlequin.com and all it has to offer, please ask. I'll be happy to answer. I’ll also update news when I can for example; did you know that in March Silhouette Desires will be putting out their 2000th book? The authors are celebrating with a special blog on eHarlequin.com :).

Destiny For the Goodreads giveaway, you click on Explore at the top of the page, then click Authors. On that page, scroll down to see Book Giveaways. Click on those words and you will go to that main page. On the upper right corner, you will have the option to click "List a giveaway."

From there, you will have to fill out the information on the page and Goodreads takes care of the rest. It's awesome. They even draw the winners for you.

message 24: by Destiny

Destiny Congrats on the book signing! Yay!

Cheap publicity? The only way I've found to really get publicity that costs nothing is by paying with time. Chatting it up, meeting friends, etc. Know what I mean? It takes a lot of time though.

I've had some contests and giveaways that went over really well. I did one on Goodreads and had over 400 people sign up for it. It did so much better than I hoped for.

Would you want to be a guest on my blog? We could do an interview or you could write a blog. Just let me know. Write me at destinybooze@gmail.com

Destiny Hey Karen! How are you? Have you gotten a lot of snow?

I lost track of you there for a little while. Goodreads changed things and suddenly you weren't in my feed. I can't find a follow button either. What have I done? :)

I guess I'll just have to drop by from time to time. You read some of the best books! And, you are one of the few people that actually reads more than I do, I think.
