Just How Much is Too Much?

As my followers know, I try to post something new on my blog every day--sometimes I leave a post up for another day usually because I haven't gotten around to writing something new. I like to showcase other authors, post reviews of books I've read, give a writing tip now and then, and quite often I talk about what I'm doing to promote my own work--and I like to post photos of my family too.

I've worked really hard to set up a blog tour for my next Rocky Bluff P.D. crime novel, No Bells. With one exception it's just about ready to go. It will launch on April 3rd. You might wonder why the odd beginning date. I will just be coming home from Left Coast Crime on the first and figure I'll have way too much to do on that first whole day at home.

Of course, I'll already have been to Epicon in the middle of the month. (San Antonio, TX.)

I always try to keep up with Facebook and Twitter though I usually on send a Tweet out once or twice a day.

Though I read DorothyL faithfully, I don't post as often as I should.

People have been trying to entice me with several new social medias but right at the moment I think I'm doing all that I can handle.

Between April 16 and 28 I'll be on another blog tour too. Yep, I think I'm a bit crazy, but this is a bunch of folks that I really like and I've done one of these tours with them before. Both my tour and this one are very labor intensive so if I blither a bit on here and other places during the month of April, you'll certainly know why.

So, when April is over, I'll let you know if it was worth it or if I went stark raving mad. If it's the second you'll probably know already.

I'm always impressed by your stamina and tenacity, Marilyn, and like you, I've been questioning just how much is too much.

Actual writing for new stories has taken a backseat to social media promo for longer than I care to admit. It's not healthy!

Yet, I'm also taking part in the Mystery We Write blog tour. Why? I get to hang out with you and other authors I admire and respect.

Great post. Thx! :)

Stark raving mad isn't so bad...(smile!) You're amazing!

Anne, you're being modest, you created the Mystery We Write Blog tour, how could I not participate?

Fortunately all this happens after LCC--perhaps I'll still be sane to be a good roommate, Madeline.
