Denise, I commented here and on your blog. You posted a real gem there. Best of luck with Losing Faith. I also just read your guest post on Chuck Sambuchino's blog about "Using Conferences to Your Querying Advantage". Excellent info!

I enjoyed Denise Jaden's retrospective regarding the publication of her first novel six months ago. Many of her inner thoughts and experiences reflect my own.

It so happens that this morning, I posted a similar entry on my blog. My first novel, Testing the Prisoner, a paranormal mystery, debuted one year ago this week.

And looking back after a year, ohhh boy, what an education it was. In particular, how lousy I was at building a platform and promoting. I had to run hard and fast to catch up then repeatedly smack myself on my forehead yelling "stupid, stupid, stupid!"

But I'm OK now. Book two should benefit from my newbie blunders.
The platform is built and ever expanding. I think it supports my full weight now. :-)

I'm late getting to these, but just wanted to say thanks. Also I needed Nathan Bransford's reminder about starting early with Social Media. I'm so lax, and I know it's the most effective tool we now have for promotion.

Thanks, Jon.
