Life on the Fringe
I thought I’d take a little time to introduce my ‘team’ of helpers. These people keep me coordinated, help free up my time to write, and keep me as sane as I can be in my world which can all too often seems frantic and insane. They shore me up when I’m exhausted due to deadlines, they tease me out of bad moods, and they are there when I both want to celebrate good news or vent about various and sundry things.
Soooo…you will see these people on my blog, on my Facebook, in my discussion group, leading my street team, and joking with me on Twitter.
Samwise: Yes, he’s my husband but more than that, he does the backend coding for my website (I make most of my graphics). He keeps WordPress working. And he puts together the puzzles on my puzzle page.
Andria Holley: My admin assistant. (She’s also my massage therapist, which helps tremendously during conferences). Andria does all the mailings, filing, all sorts of admin duties (too many to even list here). She helps coordinate the calendar and runs errands. She goes to conferences with me. She takes care of the Moon Stalkers swag stuff. She reminds me to eat. She even makes my lattes (first thing I did was teach her how to run the espresso machine). And she’s going on…wow…two years with me now.
Jenn Price: Moon Stalkers Street Team Director, Discussion List Moderator, Fan Mail Assistant. Jenn coordinates the Street Team and is working on streamlining the process. She’s the front end contact for those on the ST and wanting to BE on the Street Team. She’s been helping me out for over six years now, in one way or another.
Scotty Talley: Otherworld Wikipedia Researcher. Scotty is responsible for pulling together my OW Wiki on my website. He reads the books and keeps references up to date on the Wiki. He’s working on getting the notes from Shaded Vision organized right now.
And introducing the newest member of my team:
Marc Mullinex: Social Media Assistant. Marc is going to be fielding a lot of stuff on Facebook, Tumblr, Goodreads, and Twitter for me, he’ll keep the discussions going, and in general, just keep me in the loop while keeping the page active and running. He has the authority to speak for me there, though I’ll still definitely be putting in my nickel’s worth of info—I’m not deserting you guys there. In fact, we’ll be able to answer MORE of your questions and posts.
Sooo…these are my ‘crew’…along with several auxiliary friends who keep me psyched and working. If you see them on my pages/in my discussion group, well, now you’ll know who they are and what they do.
