Took me longer than 2 months but the short stories have begun being written :-)

DEEP into the preparation for writing Stories from Angi. I may begin writing it within two months...

The New Blog is the central hub for promotion -- Google Plus may be becoming another strong support...

Twitter "failed" again and G+ gets more intriguing :-)

20 January 2013

Added Twitter back to Social Networking but only like Google Plus---links to blog posts...

9 April 2012

I've stopped using all social networking sites except Google Plus and, even there, I only give a link and some teaser -text. It's said to be good for page rank...

Second Life and the Blog are my focus...

28 Oct 2011

After many months of struggling to make conventional "social networking" a method of promoting Notes from An Alien, we've decided to concentrate all our time on the blog and Book Island in Second Life...

Check out this special blog post :-)
