Celebrate This Blog!

I'm the new girl!

I’ve just joined this blog and am so very happy to be amongst the wonderful ladies of the group and to meet their followers. As soon as I saw the site, I felt as if I’d found a home for my 99cent book My Cheeky Angel. When I watched the moving widget full of some of the most beautiful covers...nice  bright colours showing uplifting, light types of romances, I knew I’d fit in perfectly.

As we all know, it’s difficult to promote books without slapping people in the face with the cover and yelling “buy me”. But that does seem to be the way of it nowadays. Therefore, when a bunch of great authors decide to promote their books together—tastefully, I have to admire their determination. It’s every writer’s goal to have her work shared among as many readers as possible and it’s hard to accomplish such a thing by one’s self. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to both write and advertise in the way that would be necessary for that kind of exposure.

Plus there’s always the cost. It isn’t cheap to promote one’s work in the market today. The expensive ways don’t take as much work, but the budget can’t always be stretched. It’s a hard decision whether to give up the time to self-promote or the money. Either way, unless someone knows there’s a book out there, then all those hours of slaving over a computer would be for nothing.

When I saw how this group of ladies have worked around the problem, I decided that it was a great idea. So again, I say thank you for inviting me to belong and I look forward to sharing many blogs in the future.
