Our own Mike Orenduff is featured today on the Barnes and Noble mystery blog at http://bookclubs.barnesandnoble.com/t5/Mystery/Guest-Blog-by-Author-J-MICHAEL-ORENDUFF/m-p/976850.
The mystery link is hosted by Becke Davis, a wonderful woman and a joy to know. She loves mystery and is eclectic in her reading and does a lot for small indie authors giving them exposure. When you do a guest blog, your post stays on the site indefinitely at the link above. You can have comments months later and she updates it when you have new books.
Becke is another great contact and I met her at Bouchercon in Indy almost two years ago so this tags well with Billie's last missive.
Yes, big conferences are expensive and you might not sell a lot of books but the contacts you make and the people you meet are priceless. (It was a great conference and I was supposed to meet up with Billie there but so many people, we never connected. St. Louis will definitely be better!)
Check out Mike's blog, leave a comment and connect with Becke!
P.S. Reading all the information on the post, I garnered a couple of things for my book information and press releases. There are several posts and his blog is near the bottom. The top is all information he provided or Becke found on his website and from other sources...Priceless!
