As soon as Echoes was published, author dates began to nudge their way into my calendar. The Clockwork Alchemy Convention, which was my first foray into book signing, paneling, and selling at an author table, kicked things off.
Soon, I was involved in book signings, poetry readings locally, conventions, an inaugural author fair, and a reading in a local cafe. Attending the San Francisco Writers Conference rounded out an entire year of author dates.
Did I see any of this coming? Nope. It's all been a huge, exhilarating, and sometimes exhausting surprise to me. Another surprise came in the form of a recent comment from an experienced blogger at the SFWC recently.
Apparently, I blog too frequently! Her advice was to post to one's blog once a week, or twice a month, and no more. So, in this celebratory blog post I am announcing that I will begin uploading my posts once a week ... for now.
And so, as I prepare to blow out the candle and enjoy this luscious birthday cupcake with my blog, I thank you for spending the time to read this ongoing dialogue about becoming an independently published poet, and blogger.
