Let's chat and what I'm reading now #7

Hello! Remember how I said the last time when I did this post that I was being organized? Well, not this time. Work got stupid busy and I'm going away for a couple of days for my (belated) birthday so I need to get ahead. So technically, I'm ahead, but then I kinda am not. Before I get into the post, I'd like to drop a little reminder that if you'd like to get a newsletter with each post as they go up, you can sign up here.

On today's bit of random, I've joined TikTok. Well, the main reason I joined TikTok was to learn about it so that I could help Steve with marketing his book and building a social media presence on that platform. It's been a learning experience in terms of learning the platform and how it works, plus learning how to make videos. Hoo boy, that's a whole new skillset. Fortunately, I'm a quick learner and I enjoy technology. As a result, I've polished up my video making skills and I'm able to offer making TikTok (and Instagram) videos as a service to author clients. Are you on TikTok? If you are, you can follow me here. And I've posted one of my videos below.

On the reading front, I'm reading an ARC (advanced reader copy) of the latest book in a series I love. The author took a break from writing and we haven't had a book from this series in a couple of years so I'm pretty excited about this book. I love the world she has built. This book though, wow, it's tough going. Not in a bad way. The main subject of focus is recovering from alcohol and drug addiction as the heroine is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict. She's been sober for a year and now she's on a journey to make amends towards the poeple she's hurt in the past and rebuild her life. It's a difficult journey filled with pain, anxiety, and determination. I supposed this topic could be triggering for some, but it's beautifully handled and done respectully and with compassion. The hero is wonderful too in the way he helps her with a second chance even though she's used and hurt him in the past. They have a lot to overcome to get their happy ever after but I'm looking forward to it. If you want to check it out, you can find it on preorder here. And if you want to check out the series, it's here.

That's it for my ramblings. I hope you had as much fun with it as I did putting this together. Tell me what you want to see more of on the bloggity. I'd love to accomodate you.
