Hello everyone! How are you? I'm awesome and because of that, I want to share the love with all of you. Who doesn't need some love?
1. I have discovered a little gem called Novel Publicity. Every Friday is Karma Friday, in which, authors, like many of us, pay it forward by liking each other on Facebook and Twitter. The idea is that you never know who you will connect with and who might help you out, or be helped by you in the future. I've participated the past two Fridays and have already discovered some awesome writers.
2. Inspired by the karma, by the platform building campaign by Random Acts of Publicity, I decided to do a little giveaway of my own if anyone is interested in playing along. I recently created a YA paranormal short story for Halloween and put it on Amazon for fun. The feedback I've been receiving is really encouraging so I thought I'd follow up with a giveaway. If you're willing to read "Kiss of Death" and leave a review on Amazon you can comment here and leave your email address for a chance to win an Amazon gift card. If I get 5 reviews, the gift card will be $5. If I get 10 reviews, $10. I can't imagine more than 10 people will play along but we'll cross that bridge if we get to it.
An offshoot of that which doesn't directly benefit me, I'd love to start an Indie Book Discussion group here or on Facebook so that all the small press, Indie books, ebook authors among us can generate discussion and reviews. Stay tuned as I work out logistics on that. Any interest?
3. Today I'm the guest blogger on author, Chris Eboch's blog. I wrote about revising...which I'm off to continue doing now. Unfortunately, this novel won't revise itself and I don't want to be stuck in the revising stage this time next year. Onward!
