Sound Off Time: Why Social Media's Da Bomb!


Millenia Black

s we all know, times are ever changing, ever improving. When I was a kid growing up in the 80s, I had no clue the Internet was on its way in with a vengeance! And in the early 90s when I discovered and fell in love with Sidney Sheldon books, I couldn't have imagined that one day I'd have the ability to simply boot up a laptop and shoot him a hero-worshipping e-mail—which I did many years later and nearly keeled over when he actually replied personally!

So connecting, bonding and sharing our passions with each other has never been easier—or more fun—than it is today. I remember when you actually had to sit down, write letters, lick their envelopes, then stamp and mail them off to New York publishing houses c/o of your favorite authors to let them know just how much you loved their books, or even to invite them to a conference call with your book club.

And as a writer, it's amazing to be able to get a kick in the proverbial butt from your readership when you've spent a little too much time in the procrastination currents and not enough in the flow of inspiration and creativity. As such, RAINDROPS ON ROSES is my first novel in eight years! The Great Betrayal came out in late 2006, and since then there've been several dedicated fans who've found me on Goodreads, Facebook, or on my website asking whether or not I was still writing and when the next book would be coming out. I can't tell you how much those pings inspired me to pick up my pen, get back in the game and reacquaint myself with my trusty old muse.

Currently, I'm enjoying the heck out of Pinterest! It's too bad the site wasn't around when I published my earlier novels because creating a board for the Favorite Things Trilogy has been loads and loads of fun! Visual aids never go out of style, do they? And so my readers get to check out the characters' sense of style, the cars they drive, the music they listen to and of course—lots more of their favorite things! It's pretty neat!

Now I know there are those who say social media's dumbed us down or made us lazy, but to that I say we need to accentuate the positives and eliminate the negatives! The pluses far outweigh the minuses when it comes to the convenience and ease of connecting and sharing with others, whether they be long time friends, family members, or a new reader who's discovering your books for the very first time...

Cheers to socializing! Let's connect, bond and be merry!
