Another change will not be apparent, and that is my new status as an Amazon associate. I’ve always linked to Amazon, but now if someone wants to buy a book after coming from here, I’ll get a little credit. I also thought this seemed like too much work to set up, but again, my darling husband set up my account and changed the links on every one of my books. True love, and a little bit of an obsessive nature.
The last change is my final farewell to anonymity. I don’t use my name on my site as a matter of practice, though it’s on my Technorati profile anyway. Then I wrote that article for Edge of the Forest under my real name. And now, my photo comes out as part of a School Library Journal Extra interview on the 48 Hour Book Challenge. They asked for a photo, and right before I got on the road Saturday, my husband took that picture. The exchange between us went something like this:
Me: “Should I hold the book up more?”As it turns out, in at least one of the photos I didn’t look too grouchy, and I sent that to the reporter just before zipping along to face the Saturday traffic. Taking my picture when I hate having my picture taken, true love and a little bit of patience.
Him: “I’m not a professional photographer. What do you want to do?”
Me: “Well, I can’t see what I look like, but you can. How do I look?”
Him: “You look grouchy.”
Me: “In all of the pictures I look grouchy?”
Him: “I don’t know, seems like it.”
I’ll be traveling again for a few days, so take this time to read the archives, buy a book or two, and look at all the pictures including a new graphic for the 48 Hour Book Challenge. True love, I tell ya.
