You Can Read Me Here, Or Hear Me There…

We used to have a neighbor my mother called “the gadabout” because the neighbor’s car zipped in and out of her driveway All Day Long.


Well, this week I’ve been doing a little internet gadabouting myself. Not anywhere to the level of our old neighbor, but pretty impressive for an author like me who tends to stay at her desk as much as possible.

smartypants-ritter-ames-episode-24First, I made an appearance on Chris Syme’s Smarty Pants Podcast, talking about the many ways I work to market my books (hint, I spend about as much time marketing each day as I do writing). If you’d like to give a little listen into that world Click Here get to the episode page (then just click the orangy-gold arrow to start the podcast). This interview was recorded during my release week for Abstract Aliases, so beyond being in the middle of that marketing circus, too, I also had the challenge of still dealing with the height of this year’s ragweed allergies. So, I was thrilled when the interview went live this week and I found I could actually be heard all the way through. I figure Chris did a little editing magic in the sound booth, because trust me when I saw my voice was not that strong the entire time. LOL!

Then  today, I’m over at Club Hen House telling on myself about a time I got into a “spot of trouble” at the Tower of London. They let me keep my head, but I had some doubts for a bit whether I’d get to leave with my film. You can read about that misadventure by clicking this link– . Have a great weekend everyone, I’m halting my gadabout ways now.

No Jewels for You!
