Another Marketing Strategy

Posted on June 18, 2014 at 1:39pm 0 Comments

Since I am in the middle of this marketing stuff, trying to get my new book (Will the Real Carolyn Keene Please Stand Up) out there, I thought I'd share my next step in that direction with my fellow SheWrites authors- Goodreads Giveaway.

Having a book giveaway is a very simple way to promote your book and your name. If you aren't an author on Goodreads, do it now. Goodreads is a wonderful site for authors and readers. It's an easy way to connect with readers, bloggers, and fellow…

I'd be interested, but wasn't there a problem sending it to me?

Thanks Christine! Will be exciting and also a bit terrifying to see the book get published. The synopsis will be published here on She Writes tomorrow.

Again thanks for your encouragement!

:) I meant at an expense to you personally. I don't know who your publisher is or if you're doing it yourself... My email is jessvealitzek@yahoo.com. Thanks for your kind wishes.

Do you have print copies that won't cost you any money to send? If so, that's what I prefer. But if not, is it available for my Nook? Otherwise....what else? I don't have a Kindle.

At 1:03pm on July 22, 2014, Jessica Vealitzek said…

Hi Christine - I would love to, though it would be the caveat that I might not review it....a big caveat, I know! I have some health issues that will be taking up a lot of attention this summer/fall and I'm scaling down on everything. That said, if I read and like it, I'll review it and consider it for Great New Books, which I'm a writer for.
