We're surrounded by advertisements. Many times we get so accustomed to visual clutter that we don't even notice them.
For years, I've been getting emails from the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) loop. Until recently, I paid little attention to the posts. What changed my habits? I discovered people offer promotional opportunities and guest posts on their blogs.
A fellow Helping Hands Press author, Carrie Fancett Pagels, alerted me to a Twitter promo. Book Fun Magazine promised to retweet the name of our book if we followed them. I never saw this on any of my connections and appreciated her pointing it out. I was able to have my book title tweeted to all of Book Fun's followers.
Whenever I see a link or article that I think will help fellow writers/authors, I will do one or all of the following:
1. Do a post on my blog about the article.
2. If it's time sensitive, I'll send out an email to specific individuals.
3. Put a note on Facebook.
Writers: What are some of the ways you "spread the good word" about promotional opportunities?
Readers: Do you ever write to an author and let them know where you've seen their book or feedback from another reader?
