A Little NetGalley for the Holidays

For a limited time, I’ve signed up through BooksGoSocial to have Their Witch Wears Plaid listed with the NetGalley. I encourage all members who enjoy romantic comedies, magical realism and zany side characters to pick up a copy today.

Net Gallery is a dedicated site to get the word out about upcoming titles and those wanting a new marketing outlet to quality readers. Reviewers, bloggers, journalists, librarians, booksellers, and educators can use NetGalley for free to request, read, and recommend titles before they are published.

And isn’t getting your title in front of reviewers and librarians the nature of promoting? A good review from a prominent reader can sometimes make all the difference in a book’s life on the shelf. Maybe you’d like to become a member of NetGalley or BooksGoSocial: check out their websites.

June 12th is Crowded Nest Syndrome Day

awareness day

Are you suffering from CNS or know someone who is? Buy them a copy of The Crowded Nest Syndrome, a wickedly funny look at one woman’s attempt to survive the invasion of adult children. In eBook, paperback and Audio editions. Here are a few tips to tide you over:

3-5 Things Parents Should Never Do

  • Make them comfortable.

Returning adult children thrive on comfort. Do not offer to do their laundry or buy their special brands of shampoo.  Don’t loan them your car, you’ll never gain control again.

  • Install cable or phone service in their room.

If they’re plugged into the world from their old bedroom, they won’t leave.

  • Put an adult child twice your size into time out.

Do you really want a nose print on the wall you’d have to get a ladder to wash off?  When power struggles occur, and they will, boot ‘em out or button up.

  • Leave your spouse alone too long.

Don’t give the spouse a reason to invite them home. Absence may make the heart grow fonder, but a crowded nest will raise your blood pressure to cardiac arrest levels.
