Okay you Moxie readers gather round. As many of you know I am writing a book. I’m nearly done with the second draft and will begin looking for an agent at some point in the not too distant future. If you know anything about the publishing business, then you’ve probably heard that I need to have a platform. At first I had no idea what this was. I’m thinking clunky shoes? An elevated deck of sorts? Nope, it’s a bit more complicated than a trip to Shoe Carnival or Home Depot. It’s basically something that says to the agent, “Yeah, I’m a writer and yeah people think I might just have something to say so you should tuck me under your little agent wings and fly me to the nearest publishing house because I am certain to make you enough money to buy that second home in Maui.” Or something like that.
So here’s what I need from you. If you like what I write and if you want your Moxie on a regular basis, and if you want to show me a little love then please subscribe via email to Moxie Momma. I’ve installed a spiffy plug-in on the right of this page that will allow you to do it with ease. For those of you who are previous subscribers by RSS or some other way I have no clue about, please consider signing up to have your daily (well, mostly) kick in the sass delivered right to your inbox. And if you want to spread the Moxie love then tell your friends.
And here’s what you could get in return. Not only will you receive unadulterated Moxie, you will also automatically be entered in a drawing for a framed, full-color, professional caricature of you, someone you love, or someone you hate and want to make fun of, by the infamous Warner McGee. I will choose the winner at random this Sunday. For an even better chance to win you’ll receive another entry if you tweet this post using the button at the bottom of this post and add #moxiecaricaturegiveaway in your Tweet. You can also Facebook (yeah, it’s a verb) this post using the button at the bottom for yet another chance to win. Just be sure to leave me a comment on this post letting me know if you’ve Tweeted or Facebooked me!
