Happy Thanksgiving!

I agree with Marilyn's post below that Oak Tree writers have a lot to be thankful for this year-- having our works published by Billie Johnson, a publisher who not only cares that the books she puts out are great reading and look great, but also allows us a part in the decision making process. And I have to add on a more personal note a publisher who doesn't get too hung up on deadlines!!! (I'm still working on Jambalaya Justice, Billie, just trying to make sure it is as good as it can be.)

I also wanted to share a blog by Carol Denbow, who has posted an excellent article on specific things you can do to get more hits on your blog or website. She even provides the links to sites you can visit to make sure your website is listed when people do searches on Google, Yahoo, and Bing. The best thing though, was a link to a site that rates your website, and gives you a report on things you can do to increase the chance that people will visit it. And all of it was free! So visit http://abookinside.blogspot.com/2010/11/still-need-more-hits-after-blog-jog-day.html if you want some practical and easy tips to draw more people to your website. It's always nice to leave a comment on a site if you find the information useful, so if you agree with me, please let Carol know.

Have a happy Thanksgiving!
