Starting the New Year Right

Just a few newsy items to pass along to you.

Writers' Forum: If you are looking for a writer's forum, a brand new one just opened up January 1st. It's called On Fiction Writing and I can vouch for the people running it.  If you use this code code XM827, it'll give you free member access for six whole months. Don't wait too long to use the coupon code. It expires this month.

The people who set this forum up are the same people who wrote Writer's Companion. I've been hearing through the grapevine that they have all sorts of activities and interviews planned for the forum so it should be a pretty good meeting place. Doesn't hurt to look around for six months, right?

Kaye Manro has a great little holiday read while we're still in a festive mood called A Medieval Yule.
A fortnight ago she left him. Marcus of Windom stood alone in an empty castle without Lady Liana by his side. The frigid winds of the Yule Season pressed upon him. He pulled the parchment from whence he carried it and read her chilling parting words once again. I can no longer live as your lady-wife… If ever she returned would her sensual warmth be enough to melt the ice she had caused to form around his broken heart?

And Me:  Visit me on Monday, January 2nd at Cate Masters new blog TBR where I introduce my brand new book. It's the first book of a series called The Frugal Way. Book 1 is called Smart Budgets for Busy People

I've also started a Facebook page for The Frugal Way

LIKE The Frugal Way and keep up to date with any new deals or interesting information I might encounter during my daily strolls on the net.

You can buy Smart Budgets For Busy People on Smashwords or Amazon for only 99 cents! (Yes, I want to sell a lot of these.)

If you like it, I hope you'll post a review on Amazon or Goodreads. I am VERY excited about this series. Frugal Living is my passion!

Happy 2012, Everyone!

You off to a running start for 2012. I'll see you at TBR tomorrow.

Susan: Usually I take January 1st off. But this time I hit the pavement running. I hope that's a good omen.

Tracy Jo said...

Awesome, Maria! I am off to "like" The Frugal Way on Facebook. I will come and visit TBR tomorrow. Good luck with the new book...I am sure it will be a hit!

Darke Conteur said...

Thanks for the forum link. I'll check it out. I'm always looking for a good place to hang out. :)

Maria Zannini said...

Tracy Jo: Thanks, Tracy. I have high hopes.

Darke: It looked pretty good to me. I'd heard it took nearly a year to pull it together. The owner spent some real money on it to make it shiny.

Angela Brown said...

Went and downloaded my copy, Maria. Look forward to more in your 'frugal' series. I'm ready to follow TBR. I just know there's going to be lots to get from it.

Melissa McClone said...
