Sue Grimshaw, reinventing oneself, etc.

I know it's been a while since I posted. I've been mulling over how to reinvent both my writing self and make my blog more relevant or if it's even necessary these days. After all, I don't want to waste anyone's time. So...stay tuned. If/when I figure it out, I'll post whether I'm essentially closing up shop here or will be posting on a regular schedule.

I did want to mention Sue Grimshaw however. Head buyer for Romance at Borders. Our industry is changing. Some people are running scared, some are embracing new possibilities. Sue Grimshaw spoke yesterday here in Austin for our ARWA group and wowed us all. This is a woman with vision who is taking advantage of new possibilities. She is a strong advocate for romance novels and authors. She is truly one of the good guys in our industry as well as being a very likable person.

If you are an author and haven't yet checked out the Borders website--do so! Check out the opportunities to promote your book. I think you'll be as impressed as I was.

You can also follow Sue on Twitter. She mentioned that she often tweets coupons so if you're a reader you REALLY want to follow Sue!
