I often say that it's important to make it easy for people to help you promote your book. One great way to do that is to offer to send them a free copy! I know that sounds obvious, but given how many emails I receive from authors asking me to review their books without offering to send me one, I think it is worth repeating. (I've also said many times here that I don't review books, so now I'm wondering if anyone is actually reading my blog. Hmm....)
Anyhow, when reaching out to…Continue

After years of referring to herself as a "professional dater," a good friend of mine finally tied the knot last summer. She was, of course, joking about her title, but in a way it was true!

She played it until she got what she wanted.
Book marketing, like sales - and dating - is also a numbers…Continue

Deciding to write a book is the easy part, everything gets difficult from there on, but I thought I'd share some tips with you before you get started on writing your first book.
First, you will need to decide whether you will be writing in present, past, third person omniscient, third person objective, or third person limited omniscient. Research what these mean before starting.
Main character. You don’t have to have his/her personality figured out entirely--you…

On two consecutive Fridays in June, I ran kdp free days for Hello, My Love! (HML), Book 1, and Welcome Reluctant Stranger! (WRS), Book 3, of my series, Between Two Worlds.

First, does advertising help? If so, how much and…Continue

It's important as a writer to find your voice. But it can be a challenge.
Writing style refers to the manner in which an author chooses to write to his or her audience. A style reveals both the writer's personality and voice, but it also shows how he or she perceives the audience. The choice of a conceptual writing style molds the overall character of the work.…
