Marketing Must Read and More

Huge apologies for missing my Tuesday post (unforeseeable circumstances), but I have a couple of links that will make up for it :).

T-SHIRT GIVEAWAY: Check out fellow Heartwarming author Jennifer Snow's blog and excerpt for the first book in her Brookhollow series releasing this November. She's doing a custom t-shirt giveaway and all you have to do to enter the drawing is leave a comment HERE.

MARKETING BOOK RECOMMENDATION: When I was in Atlanta for Nationals, I attended a workshop where author Valerie Bowman was one of five authors on a panel. I could tell from the tips she was giving that she knew her marketing. I just downloaded her book, Painless Marketing for Busy Authors, off Amazon. It's only 99 cents but it's worth a million in marketing advice, links and resources. It's not long, so it's a quick read for busy authors, but it's packed with ideas and I can't recommend it enough. Plus, her style of writing makes it a fun and lively read as well. Buy it HERE. (Note: I don't get anything out of recommending her book. I simply think it's worth it.)

HEARTWARMING POST: It's my day to post over at The Heartwarming Author's blog, so pop by and see what beauty I found on my doorstep...courtesy of organic gardening :).

Happy August!


  1. Amazing pictures over at The Heartwarming Author. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks, Maria!

    Jennifer, you're so welcome :). Can't wait until your book releases!

  3. Thanks for the links. I'll check them out!

  4. I'm so glad, Rula, you found my new site. I was thinking today how I need to find yours. I always relied on my commenter links, but I lost those when I lost my blog.

    I'm off to check out the promotion book. Sounds great!

  5. Hi Carol - You're very welcome!

    Hi Stina - I'm glad too :). I can't imagine how frustrating losing your site has been. I know the new one will thrive!

  6. Thank you so much, Rula! So glad you enjoyed the book.
