I'm glad you people are enjoying it as much as I like doing it.

Terry Ambrose said...

Lots going on with all these authors and, duh, it's been such a hectic week that I forgot to mention my presentation that I did on scams and cons to the Lake San Marcos Kiwanis club. My bad!

Julie Luek said...

Julie Luek said...

Sunny-- do you or OTP have a twitter account?

Sunny Frazier said...

Julie, I don't tweet, but Billie has a twitter account. However, would love someone to be tweeting the Round-Up. Smart authors would find many promotional opportunities if they simply checked it out.

Facebooked and Twittered.

Julie Luek said...

I shared on FB and tweeted this article but would give credit to you if you or OTP if you did.

Just another avenue to "get 'er out there".

Our Twitter handle is @OakTreePress

And I usually Tweet the Round Up 3-4 times each week. My tweets show up on FB also.

We have several Facebook listings. My usual is Oak Tree Press there too, but I don't post directly that often...
