TWITTER is a fun way to promote online. I joined a few months ago and it’s been fun connecting with different people. I highly recommend it as another way of online promotion.

My name is LaShaunda C. Hoffman and I’d like to introduce you to SORMAG. Here’s a little about me: I’m an aspiring Christian Fiction writer who is also the publisher of an online magazine called Shades Of Romance Magazine. SORMAG as I call it. - I’m also a happily married mother of three and the caregiver of my mother.

My love for reading started at an early age of four. I don’t think a day goes by that I’m not reading something. I started blogging as a way to encourage myself to write more.

Writing is something I’ve enjoyed for years, trying to get published is a hard journey. However I encourage others to continue with their dream of publication. If you work hard and write good books, it will happen.

SORMAG - Shades Of Romance Magazine -
