It dawned on me today that I haven’t been posting on here nearly as much as I should be, so to kick off my re-entry into the blogging world, I figured I would do a showcase of the authors that I have managed to collect on my Facebook page. After months of liking, sharing, and commenting on their posts, I have narrowed it down to a few that not only make me laugh out loud on a regular basis, but have also proven that social networking can do wonders when it comes to increasing your target audience!
Before I get into reiterating the importance of networking as stated in my post “Do: Network“, here they are!
JamieBMusings is a music addict, book lover, pet servant & NaNoWriMo survivor. When she’s not busy writing posts for CultureShock, she’s taking pictures for her new obsession (That Photo Blog) and spending time with her husband and pets. Her first book, The Life and Times of No One in Particular, was released in May 2012.
Sharon Ricklin Jones
Sharon Ricklin Jones wrote her first contemporary romance novel while homeschooling her youngest son. After several long distance moves and eventually becoming an empty nester, it was finally time to get busy editing that book. That was about five years ago. All was going well – until she had the most vivid dream she’d ever had in her life. This dream inspired the birth of the Ravenswynd Series, and Sharon started writing in a new genre: Paranormal Romance. Or as she likes to call it – Romance with a Twist.
Sharon is a member of Romance Writers of America, the author of two blogs, and somewhat addicted to social networking. Now living in a small town in Wisconsin, she is currently working on two time-travel-romance novels, finishing the final edits on her fourth Ravenswynd novel, and hopes to one day re-write and edit that elusive first book – still safely tucked away under her bed.
I started writing seriously in 2008 while on maternity leave with my son. I completed my first novel in five months and haven’t stopped writing since. I’m the author of The Mighty Storm, The Bringer & the Alexandra Jones series.
I can’t write a single word without listening to music. I listen to Kings of Leon, Adele, One Republic, The Doors, Muse, Oasis, Fleetwood Mac, Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran and Lana Del Rey to name a few.
I was born in Hull. I graduated from Salford University in 2002 with a BSc (Hons) in Business and Marketing. I now live in East Yorkshire with my husband Craig, son Riley and daughter Isabella.
Amber Lynn Natusch
If you’re dying to know more about me, allow me to put you at ease. I’m a sharp-tongued, sarcastic cancer, who loves vegetable smoothies, winter storms, and the word portfolio. I should NEVER be caffeinated, and require at least eight hours of sleep to even resemble a human being. At thirty-four, I just now feel like I can keep a straight face while saying the word “rectum” (which is actually a huge lie because I just laughed out loud while reading this to my husband). I live with my iPod firmly affixed to my body, drive too fast, and laugh/cry at inappropriate times.
Samantha Warren is a fantasy and science fiction author who spends her days immersed in dragons, spaceships, and vampires. With her pet dragon, Anethesis, she ventured to the ends of the universe, but the cost of space travel cut into her sock fetish fund, so she sold her ship and returned home. When she isn’t writing, she’s milking cows or trying to feed them Pop-Tarts. She spends a lot of time in her weed patch (aka: garden), watching any show featuring Gordon Ramsay, or posting random things on her blog. I currently have 7 novellas in an urban fantasy series, 2 epic fantasy novels, a YA fantasy novel, and a soon-to-be-published paranormal romance. The paranormal romance is a fun story about a faery hunter and King Arthur.

As always, happy writing!
