Are you a multitasker?

 


Are you a multitasker? Do you like to "kill two birds with one stone" as they say? Here is a big YES from me on both!

When you sit an watch television in the evenings, do you give it your full attention or are you doing other things while you watch?

If I am watching a good movie, I will give it my full attention. If I am not interested, I grab my phone and do things to accelerate my business online. 

Allow me to explain:

1. TikTok

I will grow my TT account while I watch TV by following accounts in my genre. 

2. Create Videos

I have video apps downloaded to my phone. In 15 minutes I can make several videos to use on social media to use later.

3. Creating Memes

I have apps downloaded to my phone that allow me to create memes. I can create several memes in 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Follow My Favorites on Instagram and Twitter

I like to follow my favorite authors on both channels. After you follow them, be sure to go through their account and like several of their posts. 

5. Facebook

It only takes a couple of minutes to post a picture of your book with a quick message and link to purchase on Facebook. 


These are all easy tasks that can get you ahead of the game...and all while you watch television.

Who loves new books?

 


I love new books! 

Just last week, I went book shopping and came home with four new ones to add to my ever-growing, to- read pile. 


NEW RELEASE

I have a new release scheduled for March 25th! The name is 3 Cabins... check out what it will be about...


3 Cabins

Have you noticed that one "over-the-top" mom at school who you know is a stay-at-home mom but always wears makeup, jewelry, and high heels to drop her children off in carpool?
You know, the one who looks like she would rather be at happy hour but attends every PTA meeting, event, and volunteer activity?

That mom is me, Leaha Singleton. Welcome to my not-so-glamorous life.

I have lived this glamorous lie for quite some time now. That is, until a couple of weeks ago. Saying that my past has finally caught up with me is the truth, but an understatement.

My life has begun to change! And it all started when I ran upon two secret cabins.
The Leaha Singleton roller coaster is on fire, so have a seat and strap yourself in tight. 

 

Coming soon to Amazon!

Should a writer be a reader?

 


What are your thoughts on reading books? Should a writer/author be a reader as well? 

I think so. Please allow me to explain why:

1. It helps us to know what has already been written

2. It keeps us up to date on current plot trends

3. Reading will help keep us inspired

4. The more we read, the more we can learn about the craft of writing

 

For me personally, reading takes me away to a far-off place. It allows me to escape my current reality, even if it's for 15 or 20 minutes. That reason in itself keeps me turning the pages.

Sometimes we all need to escape for a while...do you agree? 

Do you write when you're not in the mood?
