Where’s Funny Friday? Or Fun Friday. How about another alliterative title? – well partially alliterative.
I’ve met many authors and readers during my time marketing, cross-promoting, and blogging. I think writers have a responsibility to inform readers about all the indie authors out there in the very crowded world of book publishing. You can’t do it alone, and why would you when you have a supportive group available?
Readers don’t just read one author – they stick with their favorite genres. There lies the power in cross-promotion. If one of my readers buys a book from an author I promote, then chances are there will be a reciprocal effect, or so is the hope. Do I want to boost sales? Of course I do. Do I want to boost other’s sales? Why not. It’s called Karma.
My new page will showcase the promotions that I am involved in, and will be updated every Friday. I hope that you will find something new.

OK. Still with me? Great. Here’s something fun. What is a word that you always misspell? Mine is “definitely”. Don’t know why, but spell check always calls me out on that one. *
*And I had to write a book with post-apocalyptic stories in it in order to learn to spell “apocalyptic”.**
**And I still have to look at my fingers…***
***And it still never looks right

Amazon unfortunately frowns on authors buying and reviewing each others’ books. Sad but true. I tried organising a street team the year before last – everybody started out with good intentions, but a couple of months in and people either forgot or didn’t bother to promote. Sigh.
I understand the thinking behind it. I’m sure some people abused it by posting good reviews for each other. The campaign links through StoryOrigin are geared toward finding readers who are willing to leave a review (for a free book of course). The problem with that is many readers take the book and run. I’m working on a post about that. 😉
What a wonderful idea. I look forward to it.

I always have to think twice with words like manoeuvre and bourgeois. Never misspelt definitely though 😄
