Sharing

Blurb Your Book

or

Promote Your Writing Service

Would you like a bit of low-cost promotion for your book(s)? Here’s how this page works.

1. Send us a 1-2 sentence summary and a couple of blurbs, either from your cover or from reviews. Less is more. If you send too much, we’ll edit.

2. Send us the Amazon link. We’ll post that with the blurbs and take the book cover from Amazon.

Would you like a bit of low-cost promotion for your writing services or classes?

Send us a brief summary of the class(es) you offer and a link to your website. Less is more. If you send too much, we’ll edit.

Information for both promotions comes to Lgood67334 at comcast DOT net and fees are paid through PayPal. I’ll send the Pay Pal address when you send your work. As soon as it’s paid, your promotion should go up.

Initial fee: $25 per book or ad. The blurb stays up for 90 days. You can renew quarterly for only $15, and your blurb will stay on the page. If you share the link on your social media, you’ll build interest in your work and also help others to promote their work.

They’ll do the same for you when they post on their social media.

This is less expensive and more equitable than our old ad system. I’m using the system myself and I invite you to join me.

Praise for B. Lynn Goodwin’s Talent, https://www.amazon.com/Talent-B-Lynn-Goodwin/dp/1629293350/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1450916910&sr=8-1&keywords=9781629293356

Fifteen-and-a-half-year-old Sandee Mason wants to find her Talent, get her license, and stop living in the shadow of her brother, who disappeared while serving in Afghanistan. There’s more drama off stage than on in this show-stopper of a book.

“A deftly crafted novel by an experienced author with a genuine flair for creating memorable characters . . .” ~~Midwest Book Reviews

“An excellent read for all ages and a perfect gift for teens.”
~~Kate Farrell, WNBA

“Prisms, Particles, and Refractions perceptively seeks a poetic understanding between science, the natural world and our continual, jarring sense of wonder at the universe.”

“Carol Smallwood’s collection explores the microcosm and the macrocosm, plunging the reader into timeless and universal themes—brilliant!”
