book marketing network
pa authors group
Ouch... I belong to upwards of 120 Yahoo groups alone. What are the ones I tend to use most?
EPIC, ERWA, IWOFA, Write Publish Market, MFRW, Broad Universe, Mike's Writing Workshop, EPIC eWorkshop...
I do not frequent on line sites.
I blog, I'm on Myspace, but for that sort of thing it's mostly e-mail authors and readers groups.
Ah, now I remember the name of the site I use: Storywrite. You can see some of the stuff I've done there, but not my book. Have to be careful about that, because the mss is with an agent in New York. He wouldn't be happy if loads people downloaded it before it found a publisher!
I use Google blog, I am a member to MSN Groups which is getting ready to move so I had to move with it lol, I am also a member to a few writing groups which I can't name them all lol. And I am usually on yahoo talking to people.

I don't. I've visited a number of sites, and all I read was complaints, complaints, complaints. This problem and that problem... I don't need that. And as a whole, I find that most writers who are on those sites are not professional writers. They want to be, but they're not, and they prefer to talk more about themselves than they do of someone else's question. So, I avoid those sites.
I don`t use forums for one, there is too much disinformation and derailing information there that I can`t get a straight answer.
Usually if I have a problem I go to yahoo answers or ask for help, but I am no Ratso Rizzo, I don`t just ask or get information just to get it for myself, I am polite.
I belong to several online groups and frequent many blogs to share and learn. There's something to be learned nearly every where you go online.
I'm involved with all of the social networds (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.) because book marketing gurus will threaten you with literary obscurity if you don't do it. I've signed up with lesser known sites like Author's Den, YouPublish and Red Room which are great for sharing work and mixing it up with other writers.
I use a feedreader to keep track of various book promotion sites, as well. God help the author who is not aware of the latest trend, and those trends tend to change daily.
I use Facebook, Friendfeed, the blog spot, and Myspace to blog and share information.
I blog over at http://missylyons.blogspot.com, but I read a wide variety of forums, amd websites. I love the romance divas community. Dear Author has been very informative, and there are the individual authors I try to keep current on. I will sometimes take a break on meankitty.com, checking out all the vicious online felines.
