I’ve been blog touring for Get Known Before the Book Deal. Thanks to everyone who hosted me this past week!
I hope that bloggers or writing groups or just groups of friends who write will team up and use Get Known to work on platform development in the long haul because platform development is a process just like writing. 🙂

Lindsey over at The Write Words posted a review of Get Known.
I’ve done my best not to leave anybody out. Holler if I’ve missed anyone!
And thanks to Rebecca Laffar-Smith for hosting a Writer Mama book giveaway in May!
The great reviews of Writer Mama keep rolling in. Here’s one by Lara Dolphin over at E-zineArticles.com.
Butterfly Baby included Writer Mama in a great round up of books to read this summer in the blog Pregnancy and Motherhood. She wrote:
In an effort to remain focused on writing and building that business, I purchased a few books. I’ve only started to read the Writer Mama first, but so far, I’m loving it. There’s a great friendly tone to it, almost as if a girlfriend is guiding me on which way to go with this new venture. It’s extremely educational and is a great guide through the business as well as a mentor on how to get published.
I’ll end with some kind words from Meg over at mamaguilt in Queensland, Australia:
I’m reading Writer Mama, and it’s changing the way I view my life.
Freelance writer Christina Katz delivers nearly 300 pocket-sized pages of wisdom that will help any writer, not just the mamas among us. Most writers can benefit from advice about how to work from home, be your own boss, build on your strengths, and follow your interests. I read Katz’s Get Known before the Book Deal as research for an article I wrote for WQ, and read in conjunction, Katz’s two books have inspired me to create a framework to organise my writing activites. I devote time to research, generating ideas, networking, and creating opportunities, as well as the actual writing.
