As any writer will tell you, part of being an author is creating and maintaining your author platform. How wonderful it would be if we could spend our days writing and spitting out books to our heart’s content. But, how would those profound creations get into the hands of readers? Promotion! Promotion! Promotion! We must break free of our comfort zone and become the best advocate or promoter for our novels. Social media is only one vehicle out of many that can be used to get the word out about your book. There’s press releases, blogs, library tours and virtual book tours.
Promotional companies like Goddess Fish are a godsend and can help get your book on numerous blog spots for a nominal fee. Starting October 16, my debut novel Need You Now will go on one of Goddess Fish’s virtual book tours. They have several types of tours available to fit an author’s needs. For my first tour, I wanted to promote my book with a quick blurb and information about me. This two-week event will take me on a whirlwind, virtual tour. I get the opportunity to interact with guests and I’m giving away a gift card. So, come on by any of the sites listed below in the upcoming days and feel free to say hi and register for a $10 Amazon/BN Gift Card. I look forward to seeing you there.
