New to You

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.

New to you authors. How do you find them? How do people find you?
For me, I find the best stories through a friend after she has read them. I know when I find a book that I love I shout it from where ever I can! lol To me, there is nothing better then know someone liked the book. I'm writing about this because this weekend I found a story that I LOVED! Thank you Joy! I usually like all the books I read but there are a few that are up there that pull me in and I don't want to leave. I want someone to like one of my stories that way! I love the books where I can say, 'I wish I'd written this."
Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux had me doing that this weekend. It's with a press that I don't go to a lot, but the books I have bought there have been money well spent. Dreamspinner Press is the name of the publisher and it is an m/m press.

So, how do you do it? Promo that is! lol What works for you?

I just love that cover.

Now about promotion, that's a different beastie. I actually promo all the time. One place is here on this blog. Notice I run a lot of contests here and on my personal blog. Since blogs are updated frequently, they tend to turn up in search engines more.

Another is the way you're doing it for these other authors....word of mouth is the best promotion out there. And it's one of the reasons that I do so many contests because people remember getting things free. Most of the time I just ask for an address, email and snail.

I also post on loops regularly. A web presence is extremely important.

Hope this helps!
