And there it was, staring me in the face. What I’d known all along – that I’m a geek at heart who loves kids and books and all the ways those things intersect. Any one of those circles (writing books, finding gadgets, talking to kids) will get me excited. Two circles combined (getting kids to read, putting books on e-readers) will fire me up. But put the three together (my younger son reading my older son’s self-pubbed book on the Nook?) and I’m on a thrill ride to the moon.
I’ll no doubt be putting many of Kristen’s suggestions into practice. I’ve already changed my blog name to MY name – my author brand. I was sad (very sad) to see Ink Spells depart, but I realized that the tag line still fit perfectly (Conjuring Tales for Young Minds = kids, books, and a little bit of brainiac flavor). Even before I started blogging, I already had that brand tucked inside, because it is who I am.
Thank you, Kristen, for helping me find the wizard (and the way home)!
And fellow author-blogger friends, I encourage you to tell yourself the truth: You Are Unique.
Now go find yourself. 🙂
