Promote yourself --- where can we find your work?
write the marketing content for law firm websites throughout the US,
Canada and the UK. My creative work is by request only, but eventually I

Facebook under Carly Engels Johnston, where I am known to post the
occasional witty and/or alliterative remark about the banalities of life.
