Spreading the Word

In my last post I noted that I thought it was important for authors to use a mix of media in marketing and promotion.
Another avenue is by guest blogging. Several of my author friends share their blogs with other authors. It’s a great way to broaden reach and expose authors and books to a wider audience. Check out blogs by Taryn Raye, Devon Matthews, Teresa Reasor, and Amy Durham.

Some authors are part of a blog site, such as Cowboy Kisses, contributing posts on a regular basis to a particular genre. It’s another great way of attracting readers.
This week I’m featured on a weekly blog by Tugboat Design. Each week an author is featured in a Q&A format. Tugboat Design worked with me on my latest book, "Laments," and the blog showcases its clients -- a win-win situation.
What effective ways do you recommend for marketing and promotion? I plan to have author interviews in the coming weeks. Let me know if you'd like to be featured.

Until the next time…
