Last night, my writers' group gathered for a dinner and time of fellowship. We only met a couple times in the past year, with the last time we were all together being over a year ago. Eight women trying to coordinate one night a month to gather is a challenge yet one we tried to conquer. Instead of a typical writers' critique group, we met at Teddy's Restaurant in Rome, New York. Why no work and all play? Well, it is time for our friend, author, and group leader to move on to the adventure in her life.
Diane Estrella, to my right in the photo, is our technology and Internet guru. She keeps up on the newest social media and ways to better market our writing, speaking, and books. Diane is also an amazing writer, one we continue to encourage to share and take the next step. She has many writings but my favorite is a children's series, I pray and hope she finishes it soon. Mags volunteered to be her BETA reader. I'll do it to, I love what I've read already and want more. Hint, hint, Diane.
In addition to her Internet savvy and writing, Diane is blogger extraordinaire. Her blog, "That's What I'm Here For", is a wealth of fun, information, give-aways, and so much more. I marvel at all she accomplishes and maintains, in addition to homeschooling and all she's involved in. She is our go-to-gal when we're in need of guidance for the marketing aspect of our lives. Her joy and knowledge always encourage us. Be sure to check out and subscribe to her blog, you never know, you might win a book or some cool product while enjoying a laugh at the same time. Diane is keeping it real, we love this!
A special thanks and shout of love and appreciation
