Seize the Opportunity!

Seize the Opportunity: Opportunity Knocks at Marketing For Romance Writers Summer Camp. Open the door to: SEEK, TEACH, LEARN, SHARE, SUCCEED...and discover MFRW'S MOTTO of Achievement.

I am so pleased to be guest blogging today for Maeve Greyson for a number of reasons. First, because today is my birthday and I’m happy to be celebrating it with all of you. Second, because Maeve has created a magical Web site and I love the kind of stories she writes. Third, I’m excited about the upcoming “Opportunity  Knocks at MFRW’s Summer Camp,” sponsored by Marketing For Romance Writers (MFRW).

I joined MFRW in late March, on the advice of one of my Petit Fours and Hot Tamales blogging sisters, and I have already benefited from the experience. 

Immediately, you have a family of new friends who welcome you into the fold, supply helpful marketing advice, answer even the silliest questions, and are eager to help you launch your future. 

There are a number of opportunities to take advantage of and I’m still learning about them. There’s a great newsletter, two blogs, an online forum to interact with other members, and courses that teach you about new marketing techniques such as Triberr. I’ve already been invited to join two tribes! 

My new release was featured in because of someone I met through the group. I’m arranging to have lunch with another member who happens to live near me. The members are very generous with their knowledge and their time. I know I have just scratched the surface of what is available, but I definitely made the right decision to join the group and I’m looking forward to learning more at the Summer Camp July 14 and 15. I hope you’ll seize the opportunity and join me there.
