Thank You, Readers

Someone posted the following quote on Facebook this morning, and I thought it was appropriate considering Collette Cameron’s give-a-way that I’m part of.

“Readers are often fans of authors, but I, myself,
am a fan of readers. They are the ones who breathe
left into pages that we give birth to after all.”
Jannae Mitchell

collette cameron's give-awayAs I mentioned in an earlier post, Collette is hosting a contest to celebrate her one year of blogging. She is also an award-winning author, so check out her website. Along with twenty other Soul Mate Publishing Authors, we are giving away a Kindle Paperwhite,copies of our books, (both e-books and paperback) and other bling. I’m giving away two e-book copies of “Riding for Love.” The book won’t be out in paperback until March, so I can’t do paperback.

So, I want to thank all our readers, whether you read in e-book format, paperback, or both. We appreciate your following romance, the largest selling genre. When you go to Collette’s site, scroll down and find my name (it’s listed three times) and like or follow me and enter to win. You can do this daily. AllIWantforChristmasisaSoulMate

Anniversary Give-Away – Win a Kindle Paperwhite

Starting today and for the next two weeks, Collette Cameron at Blue Rose Romance, a fellow Soul Mate Publishing Author, is having an anniversary give-away to celebrate her first year as a blogger. She has invited twenty other authors to join her in thanking our readers and followers. I am happy to say I’m one of those authors. Thank you, Collette for your work with this.The link to enter is at the bottom of this blog. Feel free to enter everyday as new prizes will be added throughout the two weeks.

Promoting and advertising our books is a time-consuming and difficult task. How often should I mention my book on FB, Twitter, etc.? How often should I blog about my book? Being a introvert, I find putting myself out there very hard. I also don’t believe in bombarding people with “Buy my book, buy my book, etc., etc., etc.,” It bugs me when other authors do that. But how does one find followers without shoving your work in front of their face? Riding for Love Cover

One way is to have other authors help promote your work. I have to say that Soul Mate Authors are wonderful at this. Many times authors feel they are in competition with each other. In a way we are, but by promoting each other, we are promoting ourselves. Soul Mate Authors are the best at helping each other – not only in talking about each others’ work, but by answering questions from characterization to what is the best social media outlet to use.

To this end, Collette Cameron has chosen not only to celebrate her first anniversary as a blogger, but to let other authors join in and promote themselves.

Snow Gift basket 007 (1) For the next two weeks, Collette is running a Blog-A-Thon Contest. Prizes include a Kindle Paperwhite, Collette’s chocolate basket, bling and books galore. All you need to do is go to: http://www.blueroseromance.com/p/blog-page_12.html
