“Tell a Friend” Tuesday

Available September 3, 2013 from Champagne Books

Highland Solution

Those of you who have been on this journey with me know that when I started, I knew NOTHING about promoting a book. Experienced authors told me that word of mouth would always be the best promotional tool. I have tried lots of things including a variety of different kinds of advertising. Still, my best results have always been from direct communication with other people–word of mouth.

So, I am asking all of my friends and readers to simply tell one other person about Highland Solution today. Tell anyone, a neighbor, a coworker or the receptionist at your dentist’s office. If you enjoyed reading it and haven’t left a review on Amazon (Goodreads, Barnes & Noble or other site), consider doing that now. Perhaps even better (or in addition to an Amazon or similar review), post a review on your Facebook page. It is a cold day and maybe some of your friends are home from work or school today. What better way to spend a day off than snuggled up with a good book?

If you haven’t read Highland Solution yet, do a solid for another author you admire and share something about one of their books which you have read. Oh, and do read Highland Solution when you get the chance! 🙂

    Will do, Ceci! You are so right – word of mouth is everything in this business. One of my greatest mistakes was not promoting my work all these years, always trusting in my publishers to do so. I believed an author should write and the publishers should sell the books, believed readers who loved the genre would find my books/me. Had I been an engaged self-promoter all these years, rather than a quiet hermit, I think my career might look different today. You are starting out right by working hard and positively to promote your books. Only when readers know the books exist, can and will they buy them.

      Thanks Sue-Ellen. It didn’t take long to figure out that silence is NOT golden. Your books are wonderful! (This is me telling a few friends). I suspect the massive shift to electronic books has changed the landscape and increased the need to do more self-promotion.
