If you're a newly-published author, if you have a new book coming soon, you might want to be one of my buddy Kirby Larson's Friday friends. Here's her blog. You meet the nicest people there. AND check out her Wednesday Wisdom quotes. I could fill my entire bulletin board with them:
Hey, here's an idea. I'll spend/ waste quality time and re-arrange my bulletin board. Inspiration Awaits!
