Susan Mac Nicol Is Here Today With Giveaways Galore!

I am constantly amazed at the charity and support of people on the various Social Networking groups that I use for promotion and to build my ‘author platform.’ Not only is it a lot of fun building these blocks on which an author steps her way up the ever increasing competition ladder to try to get the sales for her stories, but it has shown me the innate goodness of people I don’t even know face to face.

The whole concept of ‘online and virtual friends’ was alien to me only sixteen months ago. In fact, I pooh-poohed the idea of being able to make friends on the internet, thinking it was only teenagers talking to each other because they couldn’t communicate face to face, and lonely people looking for something to do in the evenings. My bad. Because what I have discovered has been breathtakingly, overwhelmingly, AMAZING. And yes, there are the perverts out there who are trying to get into my virtual pants, offering me wonderful deals on moving money with a percentage for myself, and even the occasional pervert offering things I can’t talk about on a family show. But overall, the response has been positive and my fellow authors and bloggers have been nothing but kind.

I’m not going to mention individuals as there are too many to thank and I may miss someone, leaving myself open to threats of dismemberment and cyber voodoo doll activity when someone sticks pins in me :)

I mean honestly. Where else can you discuss these sorts of things openly with people with no fear of being thought as a pervert or a sociopath?

 The impact of a tongue stud on a blow job recipient

 The merits of bottoming, topping or being versatile

 The facets of BDSM and whether you’re a sub or a Dom by nature (I’m not going to tell you my preference :) Maybe that should become my next Facebook poll on my page…

 101 uses for a dildo and whether it should vibrate or not while being used

 The best way to plunge a knife into someone’s chin in a way that they die instantly

 Using a rolling pin to torture a man

Uh huh. You see where I’m going with all this? It’s a world of discovery out there for a writer doing research. I absolutely LOVE it and sharing it with people of like ilk makes my little heart pitter-patter with joy.

And seeing another author, blogger or reader share my news, talk about me, send me good wishes for a new release, make me amazing pictures depicting scenes from my book, post their thoughts about my book on my wall, and generally express an interest in what I’m doing is heart warming. Having bloggers approach me asking me to do something special for them as an exclusive because they enjoy my work is fulfilling to say the least. I hope I can keep their faith in me and continue to give them books they enjoy.

If you’d like to see a short excerpt, Worth Keeping was featured recently on the Gaylitauthors blog.

Blurb: Abused horrifically as a boy, Nick Mathers has come to terms with his existence as a man. Mostly. Other days life seems a little much. Especially when Nick knows he’ll always be alone.

On those days his thoughts turn black. He walks the Norfolk coast and considers the frigid embrace of the waves. And then, one stormy night, he finds someone who’s tasted just that. The beautiful stranger on the beach is near death, and Nick rushes him home to slowly nurse back to health. As he does, he finds a love unlike any other. Owen Butler’s body is as warm as the sea was cold, his heart as big as an ocean. And Owen is a man who swears to repay the favor. Nick can yet be saved from himself, and he will see that he is indeed a man… worth keeping.

    It has been a pleasure interacting with you, Sue, if only a little bit. I’m glad you took the leap, even if you thought you’d be communicating with a bunch of weirdos. Well, you were right, but most of us are the best kind of weirdos. ;)

    Putting my name in for Worth Keeping. Thank you!
