(I’m teasing. He doesn’t have arthritis in his fingers yet. He will, he tells me, because his many beloved and ancient relatives all suffer from that miserable inflammation. The weird thing is, he tells me this like he thinks I’ll find it sexy.)
Although my enjoyment of manga remains strong, the time came when I was ready to write again, and that’s what we’ve been doing the last many months. We’ve completed One Bride for Seven Brothers: The Fifth Brother, One Bride for Seven Brothers: The Last Brothers and One Bride for Seven Brothers: The Complete Saga. The Complete Saga is huge, over 900 e-pages, and the Good Witch thoughtfully reminded me that there are no romance fans willing to read anything that long. The Good Witch has been wrong before – remember when you told me I’d look good in low-rise jeans? – so I’m hoping she’s mistaken here, too.
We’ve also wrapped the first and second drafts of The Reluctant Mail-Order Bride, our first novel in a long time that didn’t involve anyone from the McCown family. All of these stories will come out this year. In anticipation of this happening, Glynn proposed that we develop more of a social media presence.
A new blog each week for at least a year. Then we needed a home on Facebook. Instagram. Twitter. GoodReads. And how did I feel about doing a podcast on YouTube?
Currently, I don’t do any of those things, and this website is the only thing I enjoy doing. All of the others… well, talk about a Soul Eater. I asked him to fetch my blankets and bring me some manga.
Once I discovered that my blogs could be transported to Facebook at the touch of widget, we made an agreement. AnneGlynn.com is returning to life with a new blog every seven to ten days for the next year. I’ll post those blogs on Facebook, as long as the Weebly widget is working. I currently have a single FB friend. He’s a lovely writer who’s really Glynn’s pen pal, but felt sorry for such a friendless fellow author. Yes, he’s a pity friend.
In the course of the next 365 days, will anyone else care to see what I have to say on the world’s most popular social media platform? I’m curious to see.
