Ever since I was little, I’ve dreamed of having my own cabin (by a lake). Even very young, I loved the idea of “getting away from it all,” perhaps taking close friends or family with me, perhaps not . . . always having a ton of books to keep me company. When asked the age-old what-are-you-up-to-this-weekend question, I longed to be able to smile casually and say, “Oh, you know . . . heading to The Cabin.”
That dream (still not a reality, LOL), combined with e-mails from some of you earlier this year, wanting a way to connect and share life and bookish news and fun in a more frequent manner, with more back and forth interaction than newsletters allow – but who DON’T use Facebook – got me thinking. My literal cabin getaway might be a ways away . . . but nothing was stopping me from creating my own ONLINE CABIN and inviting you to all use it and enjoy it whenever you like.
So . . . let me present to you: The Cabin. A community for you, my treasured, so-appreciated readers, that’s ad-free and doesn’t infringe on your privacy or take liberties with your data and personal private information. For those of you who love other forms of Social Media, don’t worry, I’ll still have a presence on the big ones (especially Soul Sisters Book Chat). The Cabin is something for all of us, however, including those uncomfortable with (or tired of) Social Media – a safe and cheery online place for every book lover to hang out! Bookworms unite!
What can you expect at The Cabin?
An awesome time, always! Visit The Cabin to:
- Get exclusive content and conversations you can’t find anywhere else.
- Meet people who share your interests who live near you, who do the same things, or who care about the same topics.
- Swap stories, experiences, and ideas (not necessarily advice) around our shared love of books for the most part, but also about the good things in life, in general. (For example, I intuit lots of animal and pet posts, tons of odes to hot beverages, and nature-themed pictures . . . just saying! 😄)
- Discover new-to-you authors and books to read.
- Find a little inspiration, thought-provoking conversation, and encouragement each and every day.
Just one of the super fun things that’s happening at The Cabin right now – an easy April reading challenge. All participants will get entered in a draw at the end of the month and one lucky participant, chosen at random will win a signed paperback of one of my books – winner’s choice of which title! Fun, right? Pop over and join in the conversation and fun today!
**Do go into your account/settings right away and set up your notifications. (I don’t know about you, but I hate getting a hundred e-mails . . . not that I think The Cabin will be that busy, LOL, but just . . . it’s way nicer and more chill and cabin-like to get a daily e-mail with any new posts, then to be notified, for example, every time someone ❤️’s something you’ve said.) Put a few details in your profile, add a picture of yourself (or something you love). Have fun with it! (And remember, The Cabin is a privately owned place, LOL – no adware, no bots taking your info, no data mining).
I can’t live at The Cabin, unfortunately (books to write, dogs to walk, and all that 😁 ) – but I will be there a lot. And don’t worry, even when I’m not around, The Cabin will have lots to keep you busy (and help you relax) with.
I can’t wait to visit with you there! Enjoy!
