Linky Love Friday: I’m showing mine; now you show me yours!

9 Mar

"Momma, can I go out and play with my friends?"

Morning All Y’allses Beautiful People out there!

While I ain’t a social networking wizard, I do spend a fair amount of time with social networking sites before I start my writing day, or during a break in writing. Partly because otherwise I’d be so reclusive I’d soon be running down the cove road nekkid yanking out my hair, rending my garments, shouting, “Aiyeeeeeee Aiyeeeeee Aiyeeeee!” And partly because it is really “Expected” of an author to show herself on social networking.

Really, gone are the days when authors sat on their ivory high golden thrones as enigmas that rarely interacted with their readers (though some are still there and perhaps rightly so!). Now, authors must show their faces, to some degree, to the “World,” and not just our physical faces, but pieces of ourselves. I keep a lot of my life still private, but I also share bits of my life — not just about my books, which you know I do not do much of that, but about writing and friends and books and products and etc etc etc. It is how I stay connected, yet still remain rather reclusive here in the cove.

Come Join!

So, I’d like to invite you all to join me on FACEBOOK, and on TWITTER–where I do most all of my social networking (other than this blog), and if you are interested in further social networking (where I admit I am lacking in time and energy and pieces of me stretched thin to spend too much time on—), Pinterest (be careful with copyright issues!) and I make the rounds every so often on Google+. I’m on Networked Blogs, as well, now that I figured out you have to actually join it, teeheehee. If you’ve requested friending/following and not heard back from me, that probably means I never saw the request, accidentally deleted it, went in spam file, something, as I do my best to answer all mail, email, requests, et cetera!

In the comments section, I invite you to share your links and further, if you like, something about You. So share! Let us know who you are and where you are!

Join us on R&T's Facebook page!

There on my Facebook page, I have Rose & Thorn Journal’s page, Writer Unboxed, Photo of the Day, and other wonderful places to visit/join/like. If you have an “author page” (which I do not), feel free to link to that as well so we can all check it out.





See you later from the smoky mountain cove at killian knob

Y’all have a wonderful weekend — go do the day and remember to Be Filled with Gratitude.

    Links…links…links….what do I have?

    okay there’s my site/blog:

    I wish I didn’t have to have a separate author facebook page, but I already had it for personal stuff under Sharla Lovelace Scroggs, and when I went pseudonym-y with just Lovelace I had to define it.

    I still need to see what the Pinterest thing is about. I’ve been there to look around, but I haven’t checked out the writing angle.

    Thanks, Kat!

    I’m already so attached to you, you’ll need a crowbar to get rid of me. FB is my wheelhouse, prolly ’cause of WU. Don’t get over to Twitterlandia as often as I should. Thanks to Sharla, reminding me about Goodreads. I like it there, but only have about 15 friends. Are you there, Kat? I’m gonna check.

    Anyone else who’s looking for me should just join Writer Unboxed on fb using Kat’s link above. I’m the head moderator, so we’ll run into each other quickly there. Happy Friday! I’m filled with gratitude just to call you my friend. :-)

      I am on GoodReads but I never use it – Once my books were out, I felt weird being there. I don’t want readers to feel awkward or constrained about reviewing my books – so if I’m not there, they can say whatever they want! Plus, since I don’t like reading reviews, it keeps me from doing that! lawd.

      Dear Vaughn! *smiling* always love seeing you here . . . .

    You cannot run nekkid AND rend your garments, ’cause there are no garments to rend. Unless you are carrying some for rending purposes.

    I am the last holdout and while I know how wonderful they both are I just won’t go on Facebook or Twitter. I hope you will continue your blog for folks like me. I know my weaknesses and too much time Online would be a problem if I hooked on to Facebook and Twitter. (And “hooked” is the appropriate word.) Each glance would make me think of someone else and there I would go.

      omg laughing! I didn’t even think about that – guess I’m rending my skin *laugh*

    We are linkety-linked already, so I think it ‘sgood!

    I’m grateful we’re already connected.

    I think we’re linked, and sharing and liking and all that groovy stuff.

    btw, I owe you a book review. Finished Tender Graces last night and LOVED it. Wish I could write like you.

      You write beautifully (and coincidentally, I read and finished your book and wrote up a review on Amazon — a wonderful family saga, CG!).

        Thanks, Kat.:)

    Linked, linked, happy linked to dearest darling Kat, with the painfully rended skin! (Ouch!)

    I got a Facebook account when it started but had to get rid of it when the DEA, FBI, MAFIA and the YMCA wanted to friend me.
    I figured get out now before the conservatives, liberals and Wendy “ball breaker ” Hodgkins from the second grade found me. too.
