After my third novel, Gracie Mae, was published, I began utilizing social media sites at a whole new level. While my intentions have been to connect with readers, I've also been connecting with other writers who are on similar paths. The support between fellow indie authors and writers is an amazing phenomenon. I must say, I am proud to be among the social media circle of these creative individuals who take the time to help, advise, and promote each other. A comment by Paul Anthony Shortt which I came across earlier today says, “I find there are two kinds of family, the one you’re born with and the one you choose for yourself. The one you choose, regardless of blood relation, will always support you.” How fortunate I am to have chosen a family of wonderful writers.
