Here’s what I’ve been doing in other spaces this week…
New Evanglizers and Smiling
I link to a speech from Dolan, share some thoughts of my own, and use a picture that can only be described as cutesy.
The New Evangelization is a dare? I can’t help but think back to the games of Truth or Dare I played in my younger, wilder days, and it certainly gives this work we’re all out to accomplish a different feel.
If it’s a dare, then there’s risk. Possibly a lot of risk.
Join me there.
Mary Moment at iPadre
My latest Mary Moment is a bit of a trip down memory lane.
It’s hard to believe that, in mid-April, I celebrate my 11th year as a Catholic.
When I think of my ongoing Catholic journey, which began about 15 years ago, I can’t help but think of Mary’s role.
And Father Jay Finelli’s Divine Mercy homily is just great.
Tech Talk at CatholicMom.com
I discovered some serious coolness when I found CatholicApps.com, and my Tech Talk column this week shares it with the world.
I discovered my new favorite website quite by accident: I was procrastinating on something I should have been doing and lo and behold! The answer to my Catholic appaholic dreams!

Review at Integrated Catholic Life
I’ve talked with Emily Stimpson and about her book quite a bit in the last week (which got me dubbed her unofficial #1 fan!), and here’s more of that in my column at Integrated Catholic Life.
Emily Stimpson’s new book, The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years: The Nuts and Bolts of Staying Sane and Happy While Waiting for Mr. Right might seem like an odd choice for my reading list.
Believe me, no one was more surprised than I was when I put my novel down for a couple of days so that I could turn the pages faster. (And it was agood novel!) You could have never told me that not only would I love this book, I would mark passages, dogear pages, and want to share it with a lot of women, both married and single.

Review & Giveaway at CatholicMom.com
My latest review and giveaway at CatholicMom.com is of a great book:
It probably reveals way too much about me that, a chapter or two into Marge Fenelon‘s new book, Strengthening Your Family: A Catholic Approach to Holiness at Home, I was struggling with feelings of inadequacy and wondering if I could hire Marge to come and mother my children.
It speaks highly of this book, then, that I was able to feel pretty hopeful about myself and my future after I finished reading it.

Blog Talk at Catholic Writers Guild Blog
I’m not sure when I became an expert on blogging, but I find myself, most weeks, sharing some tidbits over at the Catholic Writers Guild blog. This week, I share some of what I’ve been doing to promote my book through my blog.
Now that I have a few books under my belt, I can speak from experience about using my blog to promote my book.
At least, I think I can.
