Susan’s Promo Tales: Where I am


I often talk to other authors who are trying to promote themselves. Go here, I’ll tell them. My friend Breeni has interviewed a number of book bloggers. You can look through the profiles and choose who to approach about sending out review copies, or doing a guest blog, or an interview, and/or a giveaway. And don’t forget to drop me a note at Win a Book so I can plug it and get you even more attention.

Those authors have a luxury I don’t: they get free copies from their publisher.

Me, I’ve got to pay for each one I send out, so I’m being stingy (that said, if you’d like the .pdf of The Demo Tapes for review, give a yell. Those I don’t have to pay for).

Still, I think I’m doing pretty well. Not only have I done three guest blogs now, I’ve had friends and book bloggers (and both) plug The Demo Tapes. And in J. Kaye’s case, she’s plugged it more than once.

Check ’em out:

And J. Kaye again.
Three times … a charm, right?

And have you seen the front page of Front Street Reviews? Barb has outdone herself this time!

Huge thank yous to these ladies who’ve blogged about The Demo Tapes so far. Huge thank yous to you who’ve opened your wallets in this tight economy and bought copies — especially those of you outside the US. Shipping The Demo Tapes to you isn’t cheap!

Now, if you’ll excuse me (not while I tend to how I feel), I’ve got the rest of the Internet to conquer…

Come join the Trevolution!

    I am soooo in love with your book. Especially when Trevor and Mitchell meet. That just makes me snicker and snort. I’ll get my act together as soon as this deadline is dealt with. I promise. I miss yas! Happy New Year! MUAH!

    I just ordered my copy of the book yesterday, so you can look for a plug from me after I get it :-).

    Adding my BRAVOs for a great interview and, though I haven’t cracked Demo Tapes (yet) I know it’ll rock as much as Trevor’s Song, so… I LOVE IT in advance 😉

    Happy New Year, Susan. I must get my act together and get my copy of The Demo Tapes. I’m a bit frightened to look at my credit card at the moment. No doubt that will pass! 🙂

    The Trevolution! Lol 😀

    This reminds me, now that the madness of Chrsitmas is over I must arrange to get a copy of the Demo Tapes. I would love a signed copy so let me know how to pay!

    Happy New Year Susan. Here’s to a Trevortastic one!

    Hey Susan, Happy New Year!!! I loved Demo Tapes. As I told you I was waiting to start because I have a problem putting a book down once I open it and with a 2 year old – well sometimes that is not a good thing. So on Tuesday afternoon I sat down with it (my Mom was here and she was helping with Mommy duties) and Wednesday before lunch I had finished. There was a doctor’s appt in there as well.

    Loved it – did not want to put it down and now I neeeeeed Trevor’s Song!!!

    So, anyway, I do plan on reviewing your book on my sight. I would also like to give one away. I will purchase it and if it is okay just have you ship a signed copy to the winner. I am thinking of opening the contest a week from this Monday. On Monday’s I do my Meet My Friends Monday and would like to feature you and your book on that day.

    Let me know what you think and we can discuss it through e-mail.

    Again, I loved it but I never doubted that I would!
