South American Authors Social Media events coming up!

¡Hola de Marcos!

Sorry that Lisamaria and I have not been blogging lately. We’ve had a big pickup in freelance work for both of us. Landed a new Social Media marketing client, in the middle of a big Social Media upgrade project for a client from back in the States. “In the middle of”, as in, I was up all night to make sure I pushed a site upgrade out to my client in Boston before his start of business. Ah, the joys of being a “location-independent digital nomad”!

Tango in La Boca Barrio of Buenos Aires

Lisa is meeting up in Punta del Este on Wednesday, with two authors who live in the Southern Cone. One of them is our new client. The other woman is also an expat, living across the Rio Plata in Buenos Aires, Argentina, teaching Tango. I’ll leave it to Lisa Marie to post more pictures and info. But in brief, Cherie Magnus transformed her life in amazing, unforseen ways, when she left the USA for South America. She tells her tale in her memoir, The Church of Tango.

As for our author client (and friend), Susan Joyce, get ready for a riveting read of adventure under fire, marriage to a spy (likely a double agent), heartbreak and discovery, love and adventure in Europe and the Mediterranean divided nation of Cyprus, her development as an artist, which ultimately led to a new life here in South America.

I’d link to her author sites, but hey, I have to build them for her first! Get busy, Mark! Edit 2013-03-23 (I have been busy!): Here’s Susan’s site, her Author Platform, blog, and website for her memoir, The Lullaby Illusion, now at It has her comments, thoughts, latest activities, and a blog where she’d love you to chat with her. Also links to all her social networks at Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Twitter, and tools for you to share to your favorite social nets and bookmarks.

We may be setting up a webinar with Susan and Cherie, and possibly some other authors of non-fiction and/or fiction that have a South America or other expat connection. So stay tuned!
