I have 108 members in my group of Vixens. Many authors have well over 200 members. I tell my awesome ladies stories about the crazy things Calvin and I do. We laugh together online. I tell them when I'm stressed with schedules and deadlines and stories that have halted. And they encourage me. I ask them their opinions on a character or a scene, and they give me their thoughts. I trust their judgment. I love them to death.
We have a mascot and voted on a name for him--Magnus. Our Magnus appears in book three of the Highlander's Beloved, BEARING IT ALL. I loved writing about him, no doubt because my Vixens had named Ronan's bear.
My Vixens tweet for me, post to Facebook, and attend all my book release parties. They know how to add their own brand of fun. Some are authors and some are readers, but we all enjoy our man candy and share it when we can. I'm lucky to have each one of my girls.
