Hi Readers, I've been a little MIA for a few weeks. House hunting in PA and being on deadline for book 2 Promise to Cherish edits will do that to you. Our lives haven't slowed down a bit either...preparing for our move (still without hard and fast dates b/c of military paperwork)...homeschooling...editing & writing...marketing...but it's all really a dream wrapped up in tightly in a busy schedule.
On Thursday (very, very early) I head to the airport to go to Indianapolis for the American Christian Fiction Writer's annual conference. I am so very excited. September is always a treat for me...my youngest daughter's birthday and ACFW! I'm so excited to see my agent, Natasha Kern, and get to meet my editors at Howard Books for the first time! I'll give you all the news next week when I return.
But what I really wanted to blog about was what the title says: Are you Influential?
It's exciting that Promise to Return is less than a month from the release date. I found out today that it will also be released in large print...which is fantastic!!!
How would you like to be an influencer for Promise to Return? What is an influencer?
A book influencer is a fan of the author who is willing to get the word out by writing reviews (Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Noble), linking on FB, talking it up in their circle of influence, and generally promote the book in a way that works for them...in return the influencer gets a book for free!
What happens if you don't like the book? Usually the influencer chooses to remain silent and a great option then is to hand it off to a reader who may like it. This would be up to the influencer as far as what they choose to do in this circumstance.
If you would like to be an influencer for Promise to Return you can! The FIRST FIVE commenters on this BLOG (NOT Facebook) will be on my influencer (launch team) list and will get a free book! PLEASE make sure to leave me your email so I can get your mailing address.
