I’m not much of a joiner. Over the years I’ve been asked to join different organizations. Many times people have tried to assimilate me into various pyramid scheme business plans, and I have always declined, usually afraid they were some secret front for the Illuminate. I think it would be funny if the dark overlords of the world funded their evil plans by selling soap suds.
When I was asked to join the Susquehanna Writers Blog I had a different reaction. I want to thank Cate Masters and all the other authors in the group for inviting me onboard. I’m not sure if they have a meeting with anonymous ballots or there is some top-secret headquarters command center where they make these decisions. If there is a top-secret headquarters I haven’t received a key yet. Just saying.
Over the years as I toiled away on my first novel, Shepherd’s Fall, now available everywhere as a trade paperback and e-book. Yes, I’m marketing my book, it is a good scary ghost story, so if you like creepy suspense…
Sorry, I digress. Where was I? Oh yeah. Toiling away at the keyboard is a solitary experience, only me and the world full of characters in my mind. It’s okay--they all know me there! As much fun as that part is--and believe me it is a blast--the other part of my writing journey has been meeting wonderful authors, many who have become dear friends.So, although I’m not much of a joiner, when Cate sent me the e-mail I readily agreed. I am thrilled to be a part of this fine group of story tellers who do want to overtake the world of literature.
