How Do We Help Fellow Writers Sell Their Books?

Marketing is such a big part of a writer’s job, sometime we forget we can help out our fellow scribes with a tiny bit of effort. Last week my writer buddy and favorite editor, Cindy Hiday, published her third romance novel, Iditarod Nights.

This is fabulous for me in so many ways. First, it gives me a great blog post and I can help support Cindy’s work. Second, I placed my first Amazon.com review on her book since I had the fun of being a final reader. Three, it inspires me to get my butt in gear on my books, always a positive.

Four, it reinforces the power of persistence and with digital publishing we can control our careers; Cindy is a former Silhouette Romance author. Five, I took several pictures of Cindy at our last “staff meeting” and she used one for her new head shot; makes me feel good about my photo skills. Six, when we help out others in our profession, it comes back to us again and again; we honor the teachers and mentors who helped us learn our craft when we were beginning writers.

If you like a well written story with emotional depth, one researched right down to the sled dog booties and includes a lawyer and ex-cop falling in love, this book is for you! Right now the ebook is available on Kindle at Amazon, Smashwords, Kobo ebook  and soon will be up for the Nook at Barnes and Noble.

Cindy is a former military spouse who followed her hubby to Germany, so she knows a thing or two about adventure. Check out the book page on her web site www.cindyhiday.com/iditarodnights.htm for a fun Iditarod video and get reading!
