"In books I meet the dead as if they are alive, in books I see what is yet to come...All things decay and pass with time...All fame would fall victim to oblivion, if God has not given mortal man the book to aid them." - The Philobiblon by Richard de Bury
Simply Books offers a wide range of promotion opportunities. I love talking with authors and publishers, so don't hesitate to email me.
Interviews: My interviews usually consist of 15-20 questions, divided into 4 parts: About Your Book(s), On Writing, About You, and Just For Fun. This arrangement can be changed, of course. You can have more questions, less questions, questions about one specific book, whatever you want. Interviews can also consist of questions submitted by readers. You'll just have to let me know what works best for you. And another thing: I'll have to have read the book(s) you want to be interviewed about, so if you can send me a copy, great, if not, I'll try to get one from my library.
Guest Blogs: A guest blog allows you, as the author, to write one post (or several) where you can talk about pretty much anything you want. Upcoming books, info on past books, fun stories, you name it. Readers like these because they get to see what goes on in their favorite authors' heads!
Contests: Readers love them, and hey, it's free advertising. Contests can be stand-alone or in conjunction with an interview or guest blog. You (and I, if you want) can determine the rules of the contest, whether it be random drawing or some other criteria. And you don't have to give away books. Other freebies like bookmarks, etc, are also acceptable.
If you have any other ideas, I'm open to suggestions! Just email me at megan1430[at]yahoo[dot]com and I'll be sure to get back to you in a timely fashion.
