While I've only had a handful of new followers to my blog and Facebook page (thank you!), I have received several personal responses - some who are viewing the blog and FB page but have not joined - as well as others who simply replied to the mass email I distributed.
One biggie is that I have had some networking leads - one, for example is my uncle who personally knows an established author. He is going to put us in contact, which obviously will be of great benefit!
Thanks again to everyone for your interest. If you haven't joined my blog as a follower, please do so! You can easily create a gmail account (http://www.google.com/ select gmail link) to do so. Please also "like" my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ruth-A-Taylor/112941348748036.
Last but not least, PLEASE forward the email I sent you to your friends and family!
Thanks for your support.
