Thoughts about 2017
For this past year, I've been thinking of retiring from blogging and writing. Yet, when I considered how many people I'd miss contacting each week, I couldn't.
However, I have made a decision about how I'm going to blog. I always enjoy helping writers get the word out about their books, so I started my Email Connect, hoping that I could do that, but maybe even more effectively than with just a one time appearance on my blog.
I realize that with this new plan I'll only be able to choose 12 authors each year, maybe only 11 because I'm going to take one month off for RandR and a bit of travel. But I hope the trade off--in depth and month-long support instead of a one-time blog post--will be worth their while.
For writers who aren't my Featured Follower of the Month, I'm always happy to
- do a Spotlight on my blog
- add their book to Goodreads TBR
- share on FB
- visit other websites and comment
- give Thunderclap support
In 2017, I'm hoping to write about other things besides books. I'd like to post on topics of interest to me and hopefully my readers. I'm working on that now, and am going to make a stab at it starting January.
I'd like to know what you think about my plan. I could use some feedback.
- Hate it?
- Kind of like the idea, but not sure?
- Love it?
Now, since it's still 2016 and I've not changed anything yet . . .
Tara Tyler has a new book out in December, and she here today to tell you all about it! It's all yours, Tara!

Release Date: December 1, 2016
Welcome to the forest.
Gabe and his girlfriend Ona are headed in opposite directions for Spring Break. After finding out humans might be a real part of their history, Ona is determined to dig up evidence of them in the mysterious mountains at Camp Cradle Rock. Being a logical goblin, Gabe tries to talk her out of it, but there's just no reasoning with a stubborn ogress.
When Ona goes missing, Gabe and his friends fly to Cradle Rock to search for her and discover a village of trouble, igniting an age old war. His physical skills may be lacking, but Gabe won't give up. With the help of his diverse group of friends, he will find a way to save his girl and maybe all beastkind. Humans, bah!
And here's the book trailer! With sketches from my super fantastic inside illustrator, Laura Kramer.
