Is It Time For You To YouTube?

I certainly can't say my YouTube channel is taking off lately, but I've been enjoying really constructive conversations about Twitter through some of the videos I've been posting lately.  It's been a long freshman year for me and I've learned a lot, so I've put some of my experiences out there on my channel to help others untangle Twitter.

I posted the most recent one here and you can cilck over to it easily:  …

The Author's Show with Don McCauley

Another week brings a slew of days that seem go go by in a blur.  I'm so surprised lately when I find my husband coming home from second shift, realizing that it's almost midnight and the day is over!  When I'm not racing the boss around or playing outside, there are dishes to put away so that, when my second shift starts (after bedtime) I'm ready to get to work on marketing my novel.  And, let me tell you, after a day of trucking and logistics, it's not always easy!…

Testing, testing....1....2....*bonk, bonk* Is this thing on?

I've been in a whirlwind of things lately.  The crazy train has made friends with the constant re-runs of 'Thomas the Tank Engine' on PBS and I don't know when it will ever slow down around here!

A short time after my first blog, I did a radio interview for WOR710 in NYC that will air mid-Sept to hype the book.  I am so excited to hear how the editing will go on that show!  It was extremely nerve-wracking, but after that short 13 minute telephone call, I was hooked.  I told my…
