Quick Thoughts

An important thing that I've learned and not sure that everyone thinks about is keeping a listing of helpful website links, this includes your own. If you start a word document that includes information like your own Website, Facebook, and Twitter links for starters. Then add on all the locations where your book is located (featured or ready for purchase). Make sure to label each thing as you go. This all comes in handy when you are trying to market or find new locations to be featured.  In my experience though, as much as you think you are prepared for any possible question, there is always something you didn't think of...so when that happens...look it up...then add it to your list.  You can also keep a list of sites that you want to remember to check out later or that you think others might enjoy.

Book two of the Call Sign: Wrecking Crew series is pending a face-to-face meeting between the co-authors. In the meantime, when I'm not marketing book one, Call Sign: Wrecking Crew (Storm Warning), I'm taking advantage of other writing opportunities.  Currently, I've posted a Short Story on Mistress Suzie's March Writing Contest. I hope you take the opportunity to read my post as well as several fellow authors.  Who knows you may feel inspired...if so, be sure to read the rules and stipulations carefully then come join in on the fun.

That's about it for today. Hope y'all have a great one!

Read An eBook Week

Today is the beginning of Read An eBook Week on Smashwords.  I opted Call Sign: Wrecking Crew (Storm Warning) into the fray.  So if you've been wanting to read it but were afraid to ask for a free copy, here's your opportunity.  Just be sure to enter the Discount code RE100 anytime from 4 Mar 2012 until 10 Mar 2012 at 2359 hours Pacific time. 

Two great reasons why Smashwords is wonderful for lovers of e-Books:

1) Readers can choose from a multitude of books.  All of which are available for their e-readers, whether it is Amazon Kindle, Apple, Barnes & Noble nook, Diesel, Kobo, or Sony devices, in under a minute. 

2) Authors can have an opportunity to present their bodies of work to more people.

Sounds like a win-win to me!

Happy Read An eBook Week to all!  Remember, be kind and leave a review when you're done with any book you read.
