The Sand Dollar by Fifi Leigh at www.lulu.com
Welcome to my Book Promotion Tour...
I am an Indie Graphic Designer, Novelist & Photographer. I self-published my 1st novel on www.lulu.com, doing the whole process myself, from writing, editing, designing, publishing, and now marketing. The Sand Dollar by Fifi Leigh is a memoir, inspired by reality but fictionalized. I am currently trying to draw a graphic novel, which will be a prequel. On this site, I will highlight my book promotion tour, locally in The OC area as well as internationally via the internet. I have many profile pages on the internet, but the main ones are LULU, BEBO, MYSPACE and FACEBOOK, which I call my Book Signing Pages, where you can drop by, meet the writer, chat, get to know each other, and write me your feedback of what you would like to see in a future novel.

It is January 2010, and I continue to build up my writing sites, mostly allvoices.com. I promote my articles on my other sites, such as facebook, myspace, bebo, yahoo360, netlog, imesh, and the list goes on that sometimes I can't keep track of all of them. On January 16, 2010, I attended a Cirque Du Soleil Kooza, and I wrote a review for it on allvoices.com. My graphic novel has been put on hold as I read various graphic novels as well as a book on scriptwriting before I continue drawing it.
In 2009, I continued my online journalism, joining allvoices.com as well as contributing articles to triond.com, bukisa.com and associated content. On triond.com, I summarized Survivor Samoa episodes as well as antm13 episodes, in which many people enjoyed reading. I also added some fashion update articles as well as some movie reviews. I also continue to write articles to fight for animal rights.
My IMVU life has been reduced to an occasional weekend trip to virtual reality fantasyland as I play with the graphics, decorate, and see what kind of avatar I will stumble upon. Life for me has moved on to online writing jobs, as well as doing part-time writing jobs at ehow.com, bukisa and associated content. Look for fifileigh on these sites, and check out my articles there. Leave a comment or just say hi.
I continue my Street Team at the magazine as I contribute advice for a better and healthier living. My topics are under the titles, Tip of the Month and Exercise. I offer advice to young people in order to better their life.
