Today I’m reblogging a post from The Write Stuff, by author/blogger Marcia Meara. Marcia is a feisty go-getter in all senses of the word. She is a wonderful writer, but besides her wonderful books, Marcia is a great sharer in the blogging community.

Marcia also posts articles to share helpful information with other writers in her great efforts to support others.

Jeanne and Doug started it by promoting my book on their Eco Tour boat cruises.
