The Writer's Center in Bethesda. There was a lot of discussion about using social media as a writer to sell books and writing and how much in transition the publishing industry is.
I want to apologize to all of my blogger friends because I haven't been by your blogs of late. The last couple of months have been a whirlwind of events from the conference yesterday to the Split This Rock, and I'm not sure when these events will slow down. Just know that I will be visiting periodically -- you'll see me comment on old posts!
Marcia at The Printed Page and Kristi of The Story Siren both sponsor memes in which bloggers share what books they've received in the past week. I'm going to continue calling these Mailbox Mondays, but The Story Siren also has In My Mailbox.
Here's what I received:
1. Crazy Aunt Purl's Home Is Where the Wine Is by Laurie Perry, which showed up one day and then I caught up on some blogs in Google Reader and found that I had won the book from A Novel Menagerie.
2. Romancing Miss Bronte by Juliet Gael, which is a LibraryThing Early Reviewers book.
3. The Opposite of Me by Sarah Pekkanen, which I received for review from Simon and Schuster.
4. Read + Remember + Recommend by Rachelle Rogers Knight, which I received from Sourcebooks for review and an extra copy for a giveaway!
5. Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok, which I received from Shelf Awareness for review.
6. Chow Hounds by Ernie Ward, D.V.M., which I received, finally, for a TLC Book Tour in April.
7. Beatrice and Virgil by Yann Martel, which I received from Anna at Diary of an Eccentric since she got two randomly from Random House.
8. Revisions Of by Goodloe Byron, which I received free at the Writing the Future conference.
9. Creative Nonfiction magazine, which held its relaunch at the conference and gave out free copies.
