Along with writing my own stories and doing edits on other author’s stories, I also run a book review site called,The Naked Reviewers. Black Friday Weekend, we are having a huge book event onFacebook to celebrate our one-year anniversary.
I would like to personally invite everyone. With 41 authors participating, this is going to be a fun book event. Everyone is giving away something. I’m giving away a copy of Voyeur in the Mist and As Cocky As They Come along with a special contest for a cool prize.
During the event, The Naked Reviewers are going to make some big announcements and host some fun games. One contest will involve sharing reviews on the books that will be showcased over the 3-day weekend. For an advanced list of all the books, run as fast as you can over here.
The Naked Reviewers are giving away a $100 Amazon gift card, an Avon gift set, and a $10 Amazon gift card. Join us, Black Friday Weekend and play some fun games, interact with some cool authors, and find some new books. Books make great Christmas gifts. Just sayin’.

I’m so excited about this! I’ve wanted to be in one of Ophelia Bell’s Valentine’s Day takeovers for a very long time, and I’m in! If you’ve never been to a Facebook Takeover Event, you’re missing out on a ton of fun and some great prizes. Plus, you discover new authors, find great books to read and have fun interacting with everyone.
Want a Blog or Website but Don’t Know How to Get Started?
Every business should have a website. Small or large, if you are selling something or providing a service you need a website so customers can find you. Studies show that people under 40 use their phones or computers to search the internet for what they need. That means millions of people are looking for you. No matter what you sell, a good looking website is the perfect way to gain customers.
Gadgets and Gizmos of Setting up a Website
Widgets, footers, menus, domains, link-backs… No one is born knowing how to put together a great blog or website. When I set up my site, I needed a lot of help. I watched “how to” videos, and read articles and tried to understand it all. I didn’t understand any of it. Once a friend helped me set it all up, I was able to learn from there. Now I can create whole sites that are interesting and fun to read.
To Blog or Not to Blog
You don’t have to include a blog, but creating one doesn’t hurt to keep your site active. You can write about anything you want, your product, your services, the weather, your dog, daily life… If you’re an author, you can write about what it’s like to create stories and be sure to use my monthly writing prompts for inspiration. The sky is the limit.
I love to build websites. If you want a blog or a website, but you don’t know how to set it up let me know. If you have a blog idea but don’t know how to go about writing it, I can do that too. I research and write articles on just about any topic. Just tell me what you want, how you want it to look, what you want to include, and I’ll create an article for your blog.
Let me help you so you can get back to the business of your business.
I made my own website. Nothing looked the way I wanted it too. I was lucky to find Sherry. She knew her way around WordPress building my book site, and I spent that precious time building my book — while not breaking my bank. Her step-by-step directions are a big help, and now I can post and move things around myself. She’s always available to answer questions or fix something I mess up.
Marketing is the number one tool for reaching readers. Readers equal customers. Without marketing, who will know you have a book for sale? Gone are the days when you did your job and wrote the story, and the publisher did their job and promoted it. Continue reading “Author Branding and Marketing 101”→
