Loose Lips Line up!

For A to Z 2015 I'm

ALL ABOUT THAT PLACE

I'll be highlighting Blogger Friends' places
and
I'll be giving Book Event Tips



LO! Here I have a LUSCIOUS LIST of  Bloggers!

C. LEE MCKENZIE - It's our Muffin Commando LEADER! She blogs, she writes LOTS of LORE for young adult and younger readers, and she's a LILY of a commander. LOOK out!


LINDA MASTERSON - LOL is what I do every time I visit this LADY on her LAUGHABLE Wednesday posts. And she closes with a LOVELY aww... highlight of each LONG week.


LONI TOWNSEND - She LOVES writing, LOVES her children, and LOVES her phone! But squirrels are known for their chitter chatter - and I LOVE hers at her blog. Always something fun and new to LEARN!


LYNN PROCTOR - LOVELY LADY who talks about LIFE and with all its triumphs and trials - each post a LESSON in itself. She's LIVING out LOUD!


LEFT AND WRITE - LORE and LEGEND and comic adoration, Mark is a super hero of blogging. LEND him your ear, be one of  the LUCKY masses to enjoy his LARKS!


Now LISTEN to these Book Event LESSONS I've LEARNED.

We have two ears and one mouth so we should LISTEN twice as much as we speak.

Take advantage of your LOCATION! You are surrounded by other authors. Many are more experienced. LEARN from them!

They can LET you in on their knowledge of other book events, give you the LOWDOWN on which ones are good and which ones to stay away from

They have stories about their stories - LEARN from their LIVES

And they will help promote you. LIKE each other of Facebook, Tweet, Insta, Pin, etc - then when you book a future event, you'll already have a real LIVE friend LINK to LOOK forward to!
