2017 has been a quite reflective and, to a certain degree, a relaxing year in my life. I made progress with my writing, accomplished a lot of things and decided in what direction my future will be heading.
I don’t deny it was hard at times, but this ain’t the first, nor will it be the last time I’m going through rough times.
It was the time I was enjoying, I was grateful, I was annoyed, angry and still, never forgot my humor. It was a time I once again, learned who my true friends are.
I gained so much in 2017!
And once again, I was able to connect with many new people here online. Knowing people better and getting even closer to some followers, friends, writers, supporters, readers and many more.
for making this journey a memorable one for me!
Now there’s not much more left to say, except that I wish you and your families:
September 14, 2016 I was invited to the Radio Show ‘Pearls of the Cee’ on www.cityworldradio.com. – The show broadcasts live from Manhattan – and yes… I was there!!
I enjoyed the show so much!! Thank you, Lisa Pearl, the show host for the invitation!!!
Right now it’s impossible to set up a link directly to the show. This means, I’m afraid, I can give only you links to the radio archives – and further from there you would have to pick the respective show. But don’t hesitate to browse around. There are so many interesting shows on www.cityworldradio.com!!
Once you’re there, you’ll see this picture – click on the microphone to listen to the archives:
After a quick waiting time, where the live-stream is going to adjust itself on your monitor, you will see an arrow that points to a file where the archives are stored. Click the file, please.
Once it opens, you will see the archived shows listed. Please, scroll down until you find the archived show, saying: Pearls of the Cee with Lisa 9-14-16 Pearls of the Cee with Lisa 9-14-16 P
I’m very proud of this radio show. Thank you for listening and don’t hesitate to tune in every Wednesday NYC time at 6 pm to listen to Lisa Pearl and her guests. Contact her on her FB page if you got something important to say, want to be a guest on her show or would like to provide feedback.
Does anybody remember the day when Color, Race, Religion and Political Affiliation didn’t matter? The day when Police and Firefighters were the Biggest Heroes on the planet.. The day when we were all just Americans?? Don’t let it take this … To bring us back together.. Please feel free to share.
When I decided to step out into the world of social media I did research. I, as well got tips and tricks, checklists as also read as many “user manuals for beginners” as I could before even getting anything done.
In March I started “Writer’s Treasure Chest”. Since then I try to write, research and build as well as find as many helpful blog posts and articles for new authors as I can to share them. I grow with every step I take. This is a once in a lifetime experience and I try to consciously enjoy every single part of the journey. I am discovering a new world, the writer’s world.
As so many other newcomers I had not considered the social media work, marketing, sales-preparation and networking hiding behind being a writer. Being a published author will not take the pressure from me to spread word about my work as far and wide as possible. This will need time and great efforts and that’s why I need to spread my wings and fly.
It is difficult sometimes to read a list of recommendations, ask another expert or experienced author for more advice and then listen to exactly the opposite. Plus getting a 30 minute speech on why my “How to…”-list will never work.
At this moment I work on my personal website. It does have its own domain and is a big piece of work. I want this website to turn out perfect. It will need a little more time and “juggling” with the elements, but I’m sure I’ll be there soon. It needs some fantasy to create a Website before being published. So many authors do have their books on the “My work” page. But I guess I did well considering the circumstances. I’ll let you all judge in due time.
September 19, 2015 I finally created my Facebook Author page. Of course I used a list with advice. In case you decide to check out the page and give it a “like” I will be grateful. And of course I welcome any advice for changes you might have.
As for now, I took in another challenge: My first Newsletter! I’m excited to announce I will send it out Mid-October. Of course I would love to send it out to as many people as possible. If you’d like to receive my newsletter, I’d be delighted to see you subscribing to my email list:
I’d love to hear you felt the need to check out if I followed my own researches and did an acceptable “newcomer” newsletter.
