So excited to have fellow author and college classmate +Peter Salomon on my blog today talking about Facebook Ads, and whether they're worth it for writers:

Really interesting--Thanks to Peter for the advice! I'd wondered about the value of FB with the new algorithms and it just keeps seeming less and less worth it to devote time to FB fan pages. I seem to get more value from blogging and G+.

Introduction
*standing up* Hi, I’m Angela Quarles and I’m a geek. 

…and a bit of a dork, too.

So, I’m taking this as a STRENGTH and putting it into my writing. You’ve been forewarned.

If I were Linus in Peanuts, I'd have a book instead of a blanket. I've always been a big reader. In fact, my brother used to hide my book when we were little so I'd play with him. I also tried to create my own library and taped little self-made catalog numbers on their spines (Lord knows what system I used. I probably made it up). It took me a rather long time to figure out that, hey, maybe I should try my hand at this fiction writing thing. Now, I can't seem to stop myself.

I live in an historic house in the beautiful and quirky town of Mobile, AL, and enjoy the usual stuff like gardening, reading, hanging out, eating, drinking, chasing squirrels out of the walls and creating the occasional knitted scarf. I also dabble in Shaolin Kung Fu, which is probably the only purposeful exercise I get. I've lived in Brooklyn, Atlanta, Sarasota, as well as Kerava, Finland, and Vienna, Austria.

I love languages and have tried to learn various ones over the years, including French, German, Finnish, Gaelic, Russian, Spanish, and Norwegian. Emphasis on tried. The only ones I ever could count as being fluent in at one point were German and Finnish, but man, that was so long ago, I've lost both. My family or roommates could always tell I was on a new language kick, because little stickers would appear on objects all over the house with that language's name for it written on them.

I hate to admit it, but I do match the stereotype of a Romance writer by having cats. They are Darcy and Bingley, and they are two perfectly matched grays, how appropriate is that? Unlike their namesakes, they are brothers — a visiting cousin rescued them from a parking lot and I couldn't resist keeping them. You actually can tell them apart – Darcy is slightly darker and hardly talks, and Bingley is a talker. Both are sweet and loving. Aptly named, no?

I write under the pen name of Angela Quarles (Quarles being an old family name from waaaay back) and have a B.A. in Anthropology and International Studies with a minor in German from Emory University, and a Masters in Heritage Preservation from Georgia State University. I was an exchange student to Finland in high school and studied abroad in Vienna one summer in college. I love visiting other countries, but do not get to indulge in it very often.

I’m represented by Maura Kye-Casella at Don Congdon, Assoc.
