One of the great things about the internet is: YOU CAN MAKE FRIENDS ANYWHERE!
The downside to this is stark and simple: YOU MAKE FRIENDS EVERYWHERE!
That means you can have friends from down the road and across the country and even from the other side of the world. My closest friends all live in different states. Some of them closer than others.
This weekend I decided to go to visit a dear, dear friend I hadn’t seen since before the pandemic and we excitedly began planning what we were going to do. Which, for me, entailed updating this website and blog, among other things. But this is supposed to be a mini-vacation for me so I didn’t want to work the whole time. Mostly, I wanted to hang out with my friend, watch some shows, and chat. I also wanted to sleep in her bed, because it’s sooooo comfy.
Thankfully, BFF Crissy understands me and didn’t plan a bunch of activities to distract me. So far, we’ve watched the trippy, Pierce Brosnan-y 80’s horror movie Nomads and the classic The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue, stayed up way too late, eaten food (she made me a garlic sauce stuff that was delicious), and shared memories and truths about our lives. It’s been great. Just what I needed.
We’ve also talked about the business of writing. About the dreaded P word. NO, not that one, you dirty-minded birdies! I mean PROMOTION. I need to start doing more of that to grow my fanbase. I know Y’ALL love me, so maybe tell your friends, buy my books, and follow me on my socials so other people can find me too?
As I mentioned in my last post, I’m republishing my Out in the Shadows novellas, A Single Heartbeat and A Kiss of Brimstone.
That time has come!
Not only are both available in ebook, they’re free in Kindle Unlimited!
A Single Heartbeat is even available in PRINT! I’m so excited. I even got print proofs to check quality. It was such an indescribable feeling to hold my work, even just a short novella, in my hands. I don’t think physical copies will ever go completely out of style.
If you’re on TikTok, make sure you come follow me, I’m @morganelektra over there and I plan on posting more videos about writing, books, kittens, and probably my fandoms and stuff too. It should be fun! (Especially if Crissy has anything to say about the videos I make.)
So, I’m going to go back to chilling with my BFF and talking shop. Follow me on TikTok and don’t forget to get your copy of my novellas ASAP!
Talk to you again soon!
