Now, you may have noticed but I haven’t blogged in, well, forever.

Actually, that isn’t quite true. I’m the main blogger for the BookKids blog these days, and I have been getting 3 posts a week up like clock work. I manage to get those up because I have a dedicated 2 hours every Sunday at the store to work on the kids blog. It’s amazing what a set time, an editorial calendar and a small financial incentive(I do mean small) does for a person’s blogging. So, head over there to see the books I’ve been reading.

But over here in editorial/publishing land. I have been working non-stop on getting all my online marketing stuff ready in time for this year’s BEA. That means new websites for Blooming Tree and CBAY Books (you can see how far I’ve gotten on CBAY here. All of my books are going to get new kid-friendly, activity oriented sites. The authors are getting newsrooms (here’s PJ’s work in progress). CBAY Books has it’s own Twitter feed and Facebook page. Actually, it would be great if 13 more people would fan that page. Then I can change it’s url to instead of the unwieldy thing it currently is.

As you can see, this is a lot of posting and uploading. Not surprising this is falling by the way side.

However as I learned with the BookKids Blog, I just need some discipline, so I’m going to start setting aside 2 hours a week for this blog too. That should enable me to get 3 posts up a week, minimum.

And this week, I thought I’d start by discussing the NBN sales conference I’m attending. I’m here to tell the NBN sales force all about the CBAY and BTP line of books. In two hours I’ll present, and then hopefully, they’ll go out and sell.

I’ll have an update once I’ve presented.
