Fabulous Fridays

Readers are the author’s best publicists! Nothing spreads the word of a good book like the recommendation of someone who has read it.

On the other hand, finding new ways to publicize a book takes up an inordinate amount of an author’s time. It keeps us from writing. It consumes our thoughts. It frustrates us.

I will be at Mayo Clinic for some medical treatment during the month of March. My husband can’t make the trip this time. Nothing would cheer me up like photos of Land of My Dreams coming from my readers! Let’s team up and have some fun!Bonny's house - photo contest announcement

My publisher, Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas, wants to begin publicizing books on Instagram. The way to do this is to take photos of Land of My Dreams in a lot of different places with a lot of different people. Your name won’t be attached to the photo at all, so no worries there. However, this is something I can’t do alone.

Here is the information as I received it:

We Need Images of Your Book In Action!!

Followers like to see more than just a book cover. They like to see your book out and about.

Below are a few examples of how other authors promote their book on Instagram and Pinterest.

Any image with Land of My Dreams book is a great pic! Other ideas include:

  • Book with a cup of coffee or tea
  • Book and a puppy or dog
  • Someone holding your book
  • Someone reading your book
  • Your book in a scenic place
  • Your book in nature
  • Highlighted sections of a print version of your book
  • ebook version with highlighted sections (if you have the Kindle app for your PC or Mac and can do screenshots, this is a great way to highlight sections of your book)

The idea is to have good, strong visuals and Land of My Dreams in the picture. Be creative.

Please help us help make Land of My Dreams known… Tweet: Please help us help make Land of My Dreams known... Norma Gail #contest #RomCom #free

The more images we have, the more often it can be posted on Instagram and Pinterest with specific hashtags that draw consumers to it.

Please help us help make Land of My Dreams known by taking a few minutes to stage some pictures of it in action.

I will set this up as a Rafflecopter giveaway and every picture you email to with Land of My Dreams in an interesting place will get you another entry.

The contest ends April 1st and I will announce the winners of 3 $10 Amazon cards on April 4th.
