Introducing a site forlike minded authors who are self or published by a small indie press. This site is open to authors who are active social networkers at twitter and facebook etc. The group will share info, ideas, and experiences from their travels around self promotion/publishing. This group would be free to join. The only cost would be 20-30 minutes of each author’s time per week.
member will put together a book synopsis with cover jpeg and a bio with
head shot jpeg and then send it to us in a word file. These files will
be used to generate an article that would be published in a Press
Release and an Ezine article. All members will be asked to Tweet,
facebook and if possible guest post to their own blog each article we
do. So right away each member would have an article about their book in a
PR and Ezine, twittered, blogged, Facebooked etc. by the others.
if a member had a new book releasing, a book signing, a blog tour or
any event the info would be posted to a PR and Ezine and again the
others would Tweet, blog, Facebook etc. the event as their time allows. This
would also work when an author has a guest post at a blog--the members
could tweet the post and comment on the blog. Blog tours could be
followed by the group.Members might like to review other member’s books as well.
It is expected that this network could grow to several dozen active members. A group of authors this large all tweeting and
blogging as a group could really boost exposure for everyone involved.
This group would work on the honor system and we would hope that
everyone would contribute. Major decisions would be put to a vote.
Membership would be free. Members would communicate through e-mail.
Members must have:
A Twitter and or Facebook account
A few spare minutes a week to Tweet or link a post to Facebook
A willingness to share ideas, successes and the like.
Helpful but not crucial would be:
Accounts at Goodreads, Linkedin, Shelfari, AuthorsDen etc.
