Where I discuss all things strange, random musings and my current foray into the world of publishing.
I'm taking a break from blogging during the holidays so you won't hear from me again until January 1st, 2018. From the bottom of my heart, I wish you and yours a joyous holiday season full of love and laughter.
First, we need to clarify the difference between boosting a post and creating an ad
Boosting is when you click the little blue button on an already published post on your page. It says, "Boost Post" like the image below.

characters with real people–until recently. While scrolling through my newsfeed
on Facebook, like I do about a hundred times a day, I saw a notice about my
high school reunion. Over the years I've connected with some high school
friends via social media with no mention of a reunion. Until now. In my debut novel, The Ghost and Mrs. Miller, Libby Miller joins the committee to plan
