also, just an update for those of you who care... i'm still working on this book proposal but my deadline is october 31st - after that the agent will pitch it to several publishers (some of his clients are big time, so keep your fingers crossed!!!) and see if anyone likes what they see! yikes!!!

but there's a whole section on the proposal where i have to list different "broadcast platforms" that i could use to help market the book. they ask how many people i can contact within a month, how many people regularly read my work, etc etc...so this is where this stupid blogging comes in. so thanks for being a member and helping give me at least ONE platform to brag about!

so keep the comments coming, because i can use every suggestion and improvement that i can get! (or just plain old encouragement is never a bad thing either).
