I'm sharing this 'cause I was awed and truly humbled by Susan Elizabeth Phillips' kindness...not to mention her wicked sense of humor:) She wins the Nobel Prize for friendship!

"I have great news for those of you who enjoy a big, juicy, sexy historical romance--I.E. big plot, multi-dimensional characters, fabulous historical detail, and...did I mention sexy? Oh, yes, I believe I did. My dear friend Linda Barlow, Author has FINALLY made her beloved FIRES OF DESTINY available as an E-book. Linda is a fabulous writing talent who gave it up for a while to study brain science, teach at Harvard, win the Nobel Prize--whatever. (I guess she hasn't won it yet, but knowing her, she probably will!) I'm guessing many of you may remember Linda's books. Love the fact that she's going to reach a whole new readership!,

Is Twitter a Lannister?

cue The Rains of Castamere music

One House battling another. Houses merging. Betrayal. Attacks. Feints. Retreats. Wars won and lost.

While that may sound like the events taking place in the hit books and TV show, Game of Thrones, it's actually a lot like what's been going on within the world of Social Media.

This stunning and entertaining infograph from +HootSuite illustrates the moves and counter-moves that the major networks have been making in recent years, like when House Twitter cut off Instagram Way (similar, perhaps, to the poisoning of Jon Arryn?).

Check it out! And let me know what you think. Which Game of Thrones Houses are most like the major social networks? Is House Twitter the Lannisters? Which House is your favorite?

Thanks for reading!

Story
Tagline
Linda is a longtime published novelist, biologist, teacher, and student of all the world has to offer. She is very much a generalist in her interests. Linda also loves gaming, particularly MMOs, which is her excuse for the picture, snapped in the Guild Wars 2 beta, shown at the top of this page.
Introduction

I’ve had a lot of adventures over the years, including university teaching, co-founding a software company, expert witnessing on search engine technology, and of course, writing books!

I’m the author of fifteen published novels in various genres, including family sagas, historical and contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and general mainstream fiction. Publishers have included Doubleday, Dell, Penguin, Warner Books, New American Library/Signet, Berkley/Putnam, Silhouette and Harlequin.  My books have won numerous industry awards, including the Rita from Romance Writers of America (1989), Best New Historical Novelist from Romantic Times (1986) and a Lifetime Achievement award from Romantic Times. I contributed two essays to Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women, a collection of scholarly essays on the enduring appeal of the romance.

Most of my novels are currently out of print, but I will be reissuing them in ebook format over the next few months.

I served as President of Novelists, Inc. in 1992 and did two three-year terms on the Executive Council of the Authors Guild in the 1990s. I was Romance Writers of America’s keynote speaker at the annual conference in 1989.
