Momentum in the Blogosphere

March 3, 2013

Adobe Photoshop PDFAfter writing the first book, life happened, and the marketing for it was put so far on the back burner, so to speak, that it virtually never happened. That is a blow to any author. A year later, I am now able to take some of the steps that should have happened from the get-go, mainly securing spots on reviewer blogs. In that same time frame, I set up accounts on various social media sites, and started learning about them. That opened the door to making some good contacts, and to making a lot of new friends as well!

My best luck with finding good bloggers has been through Goodreads so far. I met Irene, of Reenie’s Book Blog, through that site, and she was the first to feature “Speeding Tickets.” She did a giveaway for me as well. http://reeniediva.blogspot.ca/2013/02/speeding-tickets-valley-brown.html

As of today, Laurie’s (Non-Paranormal) Thoughts & Reviews is showcasing me and the book: http://www.lauries-interviews.blogspot.com/2013/03/speeding-tickets-by-valley-brown.html You may want to check out the interview section, and see what other books she talks about while you’re there. I had a good time answering the questions, and Laurie was great to work with.

Book Review bloggers are a huge part of today’s marketing for authors. They provide a terrific service to readers by giving them a chance to learn about books and authors that they might otherwise only be exposed to on a shelf, and for that I thank them, every one!
