Out and About Online
Last week I blogged about how wonderful it was to be distracted from my work--by family. And most especially by my baby grandson.
Right now, I’ve got more time to dig in and work on the books I’m writing. But that’s not all. I have two--that’s right, two!--new books being published in February. That’s only about two months away now, and I want to do everything I can to get the word out so people will know about them. Which books? My next Alpha Force Harlequin Nocturne UNDERCOVER WOLF, and my next Pet Rescue Mystery OODLES OF POODLES for Berkley Prime Crime.
Since there’s a little bit of time till then, I want to plan on letting people know about both books as much as possible using social media. I’ve been invited to participate in some online blogs and magazines, and will be delighted to do that.
I’ll also be working on a blog tour. I’m on Facebook, but have been avoiding Twitter since I’m already too distracted by the things I actually do online.
I’m additionally looking for ideas. So--what can you suggest? Are there any blogs besides Killer Hobbies that you read and think I should try to guest on? Any groups or magazines or anything else you can suggest that I do?
And, okay, hit me with it. Do you think I should join Twitter?
Whether you’re a reader, writer or both, what are your favorite online methods for authors to let readers know about new releases?
