Okay, so I write nasty little horror stories, but this post is about making friends online, and my Zombie intestines eating people just wouldn't present the same visual as these cute kittens.
I put posts up all over the place and meet some great people. Now what I like to see is when some of my friends reach out to some of my other friends and they become friends. How cool is that?
Case in point: for two months I was spotlighting some very talented women in my Woman in Horror series on DarkMedia City blog. What's happening now is some of these great authors are reaching out to other great authors and reading each others books. In another instance, one of my friends posted about book signings and another friend told her that she was doing one close to where they both live. Guess what? They will both be there to do signings now.
While there are some petty people involved in the publishing industry, the same as any other, what we are seeing here are different writers from different publishing houses getting to know and like each other and helping each other out.
Also, I'm happy when these great ladies post on DarkMedia City's blog or other ones and continue spreading the word.
Everything comes back to us, folks. If we are kind to others, others will be kind to us. That means a nicer place for us all to live in.
I like that.
