Teaming up with Lisa Pietsch!

My specialty is not social marketing. Granted I will do it, but Lisa Pietsch knows her stuff.  Lisa spoke at my writers group this August and she had much to say about Social Media and Marketing.

We ‘ve agreed to team but we will continue to run distinct businesses. I will happily refer marketing to Lisa. She is far more the expert than I.

As a social media strategist and manager, Lisa’s initial consultations are FREE.  You can learn more about Lisa at LisaPietsch.com.

A little more about Lisa:

Lisa Pietsch


Marketing Consultant
Suspense, Espionage and Paranormal Author

Lisa Pietsch is a U.S.A.F. veteran, a multi-published novelist and freelance writer, a social media marketing consultant, managing editor for five content rich online communities and several online and print newsletters, the Co-Founder and Managing Editor of SAXtreme Magazine (www.saxtreme.com), an aspiring figure competitor (www.xtremetransformations.com) and the mother of two boys. She has an A.S. in Business Management from the University of Maine and has been immersed in social media marketing for the past eight years. She has a passion for foreign languages, travel and hot guys with guns. Lisa currently lives in the Hill Country north of San Antonio, Texas.

When her first novel, The Path to Freedom, was published in electronic formats in 2008, Lisa realized her marketing efforts would need to take a left turn at traditional and become largely electronic as well. Since then, she has developed tools and handbooks that teach authors and small press publishers how to market their books and their brands without breaking the bank. She is available for both workshops and private consulting.

Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop Going On Now!

The Blog Hop begins Monday, August 13th and ends Sunday, August 19th! 

Thanks for stopping by my site! I’m giving away a free digital copy of The Long Road Home, which is a contemporary romance or Shrouded in Darkness, a dark paranormal/sci-fi romance. Both books are written by H. D. Thomson, my pen name. OR if you are an author, a graphic button to advertise your book. Your choice!

I would love to have you sign up for my newsletter for contests and latest book releases while you’re here.

My idea of a hot hero is the type of men I write. Very normal, everyday men, BUT once thrust into strange and dangerous situations, they overcome extreme odds to champion the people they love. Yes they may be hot to look at but they are just as hot inside where it counts :) .

To get a free digital copy, don’t forget to add a comment with your email below the blog hop list. The grand prize is a gift card to Barnes & Noble, and I’m sure there a so many other prizes on the hop!

Also, I’d love to hear what makes a hero hot to you!
