Shameless Self Promotion

Regular Vampires, Ladies, & Potpourri reader and fellow author, Michelle Proulx, has reviewed my book, Acceptance, on her blog.  It’s vera nice!

(Hey, Michelle, when is your book coming out? It sounds fun and quirky–the sort of thing I like.)

If you’ve read my book, or are getting ready to finish it, I’d really appreciate reviews on your blog, Amazon, and/or Smashwords. Reviews on Smashwords and Amazon help people who are on the fence decide if they want to buy it. And reviewing it on your blog, Facebook page, etc. helps spread the word (word-of-mouth is how the majority of book sales are generated, whether you’re self-published or traditional).

And if you don’t have a copy, and Michelle’s review has piqued your curiosity, you can download the e-book at Smashwords (all formats available). You can also get one for your Kindle at Amazon, or you can order a print copy.

Even if you’re still not sure, d/l a free sample from Smashwords and try it out.

And if you’re finished with Acceptance, but find yourself craving more, check out my website. I have character biographies, background information, and short stories related to the series.

If you want to follow me on Facebook, I’ve been doing short critiques of book descriptions every day–handy if you’re looking at self-publishing. On Twitter I share horrible or unintentionally funny lines from book descriptions (entertaining more than educational), although I do sometimes point out good descriptions and interesting-sounding books.

Oh, and if you’re a blogger, I’ll do interviews/guest posts about… well, about damn near anything. I’m a little rusty on my quantum physics, but I’ll take a stab at it if that’s what you want for your blog post (not really. I was a history major; stick to liberal arts questions).

Now that I’ve used up my lifetime’s allotment of the word “if,” I’m off to do some work for someone other than myself.

  1. Seventeen cheers for shameless self promotion!!! Love it. Um, book is coming out mid-to-end December, currently. It can’t actually go anywhere until I actually submit a final manuscript. BUT that should be happening within the next week or two, so, fingers crossed for a publication date pre-2013!

      Have you made a book trailer yet?

      • Ha, no. I’m just trying to get past the editing stage. Once my baby is safely in the hands of the iUniverse publishing team, I can start worrying about book trailers and marketing plans. I really want to make one, though! Soon. Sooooooooooon.

      • Keri Peardon says:

        How long is iUniverse going to have it, because you’re supposed to start on your marketing at least 3 months (preferably 6 months) before you publish. Book trailers definitely need to be playing before it comes out, to generate excitement (something I didn’t do with “Acceptance,” but I will for next year’s book).

        Although, admittedly, even a basic one will consume hours and hours of your life. It’s a new form of fun!

      • Ahh, good point. It should take them about 3 months, so I guess I should get that book trailer going! Hmm … now to just figure out what I want to do with it …

  2. I JUST finished reading “Acceptance” and will definitely be adding a rave review on Smashwords! I just have to now figure out how I survive until you release “Devotion”!

      Yay! Glad you liked it! 😀

      Check out my website for a little snack to tide you over until the next course. I have character bios, background info, and related short stories on there. There are also some pictures on Pinterest related to my characters and the places where they live/travel.
