I hope everyone is having a good week. The last few days, I have been forcing myself completely out of my comfort zone and throwing myself into the horrid world of PROMOTION. If there was one awful, terrible, hated task all authors have to endure, it's PROMOTION. That word stiffens every 'creative juice', making me want to run into the hills and hide.
A little melodramatic, you think? Not if you live in my shoes.
Promotion is a horrible chore but so necessary if I ever want to reach readers and get my books in front of them. There are no clear road maps, solutions, or magical wands available to make promotion easy. It's hard work and a minefield of doubt and indecision.
BUT, this week, I have tackled two areas of promotion I want to share with you. First of all, I have finally tipped my toe into the mystical world of Goodreads and have entered my first book, In the Shadow of Greed into a Goodreads Book Giveaway. In honor of my next release, In the Shadow of Pride, I have chosen to give away one autograph copy of Greed. This contest is worldwide---and yes---I will ship the winning book to other countries besides just the United States. If this is something you think you might like to have, then all you have to do is clink on this link, hit the enter to win icon, and then cross your fingers. Best of luck!
The second thing I have done this week is begin adding FREE sample chapters of each of my books on Wattpadd.com. I just found out about Wattpad and am still learning how to use it. If you would like a chance to read more pages of my stories than are available on the on-line stores, you now can go to the link before. Watch for new chapters for the next book in the series, In the Shadow of Pride. If you take time to leave me a note on Wattpad, I will answer!!
