Great post! And a very important tip. Don't make this Google+ etiquette blunder:

"[Y]ou should never notify your Google+ connections via email. Their permission to contact them only extends to Google+."

From #11 on <http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/13-google-plus-tools/

I do NOT need email notification of someone's new posts. That's a surefire way of having me Mute you, and that defeats the purpose of connecting with me. :)

If you struggle with knowing what your story's turning points are or aren't sure what should go in your story's beat sheet, this post might help. :)
 
How to recognize your turning points. Good for plotters and pantsers alike. Sometimes that event isn't what you think it is. +Jami Gold

I don't think I've shared this here yet... :) The original Emotion Thesaurus is THE best, most helpful writing book I own. I use it every day when I'm drafting. And now it has two equally awesome siblings. LOL!

In a time of iffy statistics for indie bookstores, I'm proud that one of the best and most successful is in Arizona. In fact, they're doing so well they're expanding to a second location. The problem?

Despite the fact that they pay their bills and repaid their loans on time and have excellent credit, no bank wants to loan such a "risky" business as a bookstore the money. Their solution?

An Indiegogo campaign! If you want to support a great indie bookstore, check out this campaign for Changing Hands Bookstore--complete with rewards any booklover would appreciate--and while you're checking them out, you can pick up some Christmas gifts too. :)

P.S. At least go check out the rewards, they're hysterical! (Moby Dick = "Who You Calling Dick?")

Introduction
Paranormal Author of Beach Reads with Bite

After nursing a Pegasus back to health, 
Jami Gold moved to Arizona and decided to become a writer, where she could put her talent for making up stuff to good use.  Fortunately, her muse, an arrogant male who delights in causing her to sound as insane as possible, rewards her with unique and rich story ideas.  Fueled by chocolate, she writes paranormal romance and urban fantasy tales that range from dark to humorous, but one thing remains the same: Normal need not apply.  Just ask her family—and zombie cat.
