Fun times and Author shenanigans in the Alamo City

Yesterday, I finally got to meet one of my best friends, and fellow author, Jami Brumfield, in person. You see, we both began writing for Examiner about 6 or more years ago, and through that medium, began what has since grown into what can only be described as a familial friendship, a sisterhood. Jami and I talk all the time. We collaborate on projects, and now, we've met each other, and each other's families. Love her hubby, Gary, and sister, Robin! They met my mom, and together with six other Crazy Lady Authors, (Aubree Lane, Diane Rinella, Samantha Jacobey, Jennifer Theriot, Kelly Cozzone, and Teri Riggs), we had ourselves a blast at the 2nd annual Deep in the Heart Author Event in San Antonio.

Michele E. Gwynn & Jami Brumfield

We met some wonderful fans, and acted like teenagers on Spring Break, but that's okay. It was fun. Next stop, Hilton Head, SC in June. That's going to be some serious R&R, and will officially be the largest gathering of Crazy Ladies in one city. We'll be on the beach. You won't be able to miss us. We'll be the ones with fruity adult beverages, a good book in hand, and surrounded by Cabana boys that look like cover models...probably because we'll be holding cover model tryouts. That's how we roll.

Blogging can be lucrative!

You can blog for yourself or for others, but the best way to earn decent scratch is to do both. ( offers FREE blogs)

Work for yourself!

Starting your own blog is a great way to utilize your writing talents while simultaneously advertising your gift for the written word, but it will take some time.  Don't expect to suddenly be rich by espousing your personal opinions.  You have to do the research and find your niche.  Successful blogs are the ones that focus on a particular topic or category.  If you're passionate about food, you might start a blog featuring your homemade recipes, or if you're a talented gardener you might blog about how to grow produce, etc.  Stick to one area to avoid …
