I own a daily blog, Double M. I also belong to this group blog, Acme Authors Link, another at Make Mine Mystery and yet another at The Blood-Red Pencil.
Besides my blogs, I'm also the network creator of two ning networks, Book Place and Sixty & Savvy.
In addition to my own Morgan Mandel egroup, I belong to a great many egroups, some of which are Pump Up Your Blog, Blog Book Tours, Murder Must Advertise, Long and Short Romance Reviews, to name a few. There are way too many to mention here. Then, the writing organizations I belong to also have egroups, namely Chicago-North RWA, MWMWA, EPIC, and Sisters in Crime.
I'm addicted to Twitter and twit constantly to draw attention to my blogs and also just for the fun of it. I have Facebook, Myspace, Bebo, Hi 5 and other social network accounts.
I enjoy marketing, but sometimes it gets in the way of my writing. For a few weeks, during vacation and in the midst of my edits, I took a lot of time off from online so I could get Killer Career into shape. I've pretty much got a handle on the novel now and hope to get it out by September. After all, what good is marketing if you have no product to market?
What about you? How much marketing do you do? Does it interfere with your writing? Where do you draw the line? Please share.
