Weather Report, May 9

OUR CURRENTLY FEATURED BOOKS, “THE SILENCED,” BY JAMES DeSILVA AND “ADIRONDACK GOLD,” BY PERSIS GRANGER, CAN BE FOUND BY SCROLLING DOWN BELOW THIS POST, ALONG WITH THE FIRST TUESDAY REPLAY.

——————————

One of the nice things about having your own blog is that you can be flexible.

I discovered yesterday that two of the templates I had planned to use tomorrow had formatting problems, and there wasn’t time to fix them. So, I’m putting them off a week and choosing instead to commemorate our first anniversary by running a list of all 144 books (in three segments, to avoid overkill) that we’ve featured over the past year, including a brief description.

This is intended to serve several purposes:

It’s a thank you to all the authors who have participated.

It’s a chance for blog followers to catch up on books they may have missed.

It’s a way of showing prospective Snowflakes participants the scope of what we’re doing.

Don’t forget that you can summon up the complete template for any of these books by clicking on the author’s name on the “Authors” page.

Right now I’m having a little trouble finding writers who want to participate in this project. I’ve sent out a lot of e-mails to specific authors, with no response, and that puzzles me. This service is, after all, free, and requires only a few  minutes to fill out the template. And whether a book is struggling or selling well, this still provides an opportunity for one-on-one time with a few hundred people who might not ever hear about that book otherwise.

There are some nice testimonials on the site, and as far as I know no one has ever said anything bad about us on the Internet. So I’m not really discouraged, just puzzled. Perhaps the problem is that people are so turned off by Internet scams that they automatically assume the worst of everything they receive.

Anyway, I hope all of you who are mothers were appropriately honored yesterday.

Best,

Darrell
