The Writers4Writers Debut Campaign & More!




The big day is finally here!  Well, actually, I'm a few hours early, but I have friends on the other side of the world, so I thought I'd get started.  And really, it's a two-fer, at least for me, so before I get started on the Writers4Writers campaign, I wanted to remind you that Thursday December 6th is launch day for Lisa Regan’s debut novel, Finding Claire Fletcher I’ll be conducting an interview with Lisa on Monday 12/10, but head on over to her place for details on her tour, giveaway, and prizes!  Don’t miss it!

Now, for my big news…

Today marks the debut campaign of Writers4Writers.

Hosted by Stephen Tremp, Mary PaxC.M. Brown, and Christine Rains, this group’s mission is to:

  • Help writers bring awareness of their book(s) to tens of thousands of new people
  • Help writers reach Amazon Top 100 in at least one category (i.e., suspense, free, whatever)
  • Increase sales of their book(s) after the promo is over
  • Drive new traffic to their blog and increase following
  • Create verbal and viral buzz

In a nut shell, the spotlighted author—this week it’s me and my book, The Mistaken—will be promoted via Twitter and Facebook.  I’ve posted pre-written Tweets below. At your convenience, simply copy and paste whichever Tweets you prefer into Twitter.

Or go to #W4WS and Retweet other Tweets.

Imagine, a hundred bloggers over a few days, Tweeting and sharing links for the featured books, reaching potentially tens of thousands of new people!  I know I’m excited, and goodness knows, I can use the help. 

So choose your Tweet below and have at it.
I’ve arranged them by categories:
