Connecting With Readers And Cover Reveal Team Sign Up


I recently read a post on Rachelle Gardner’s blog titled Are Writers Too Insulated From Their Readers. It made me re-think how I blog, because I’m guilty on this one. Most of my posts focus on the craft of writing. This is my passion, but I certainly don’t intend to alienate readers. 

To quote Mike Duran, “Writers must wrestle with the technical details of a story while trying to enjoy it. Readers only want to enjoy it.”

I’m not sure how to go about creating a blog that appeals to readers and writers alike. Do you have one blog dedicated to the craft and another just for fans? Do you dedicate a specific number of posts to non-writing topics? Do book reviews count as a non-writing topic?

What are your thoughts? Do you know of a blog(s) that balance the two?

PLUS….

I’m gearing up for a cover reveal (squee!) for EDGE OF TRUTH on November 23 and I’d love your help. You don’t have to have a blog to participate. Facebook, Pinterest (find me here), Tmblr, Twitter, etc. offer options for posting material.

If you’re interested, please fill out this form and I’ll contact you with the information you’ll need. You can also leave a comment below, tweet me, or Facebook me. Thanks!

Cover Reveal for STRENGTH by Carrie Butler


 

 

Congratulations to Carrie Butler on her debut novel STRENGTH! I cannot wait to get my hands on this book.

Designer: Carrie Butler
Photographer: Yuri Arcurs

Series: Mark of Nexus – Book 1
PublisherSapphire Star Publishing  
Category: New Adult (NA)
Genre: Paranormal Romance (PNR)
Release Date: March 07, 2013

When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, her rumor-laced notions are shattered. Handsome, considerate, and seemingly sane, Wallace Blake doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, screaming and banging on the walls of his dorm room. Hell, he doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, period.

Too curious for her own good, Rena vows to uncover the truth behind Wallace’s madman reputation—and how two seconds of contact had left her with bruises. Of course, there are a few minor setbacks along the way: guilt, admiration, feelings of the warm and fuzzy variety…

Not to mention the unwanted attention of Wallace’s powerful, supernaturally-gifted family.

They’re a bloodline divided by opposing ideals, two soon-to-be warring factions that live in secret among us. When Rena ends up caught in their crossfire, Wallace has no choice but to save her by using his powers. Now they’re really in trouble. With war on the horizon and Rena’s life in the balance, he needs to put some distance between them. But Rena won’t let go. If fighting is what it takes to prove her own strength and keep Wallace in her life, then that’s what she’ll do—even if it means risking a whole lot more than her heart.
