Paperbacks make prizes…

Big thank you to the lovely people at Women and words, who kindly invited me to take part in their HUGE giveaway, Hootenanny! Well done Sallyk on winning yourself a copy of my book Out: A Cam Thomas Story.

One of the hardest things I have found as an independent author is gaining any kind of recognition – getting your name out there when there are so many other wonderful writers, is quite hard! Its a daily grind of hitting social media with links and offers and trying to be more witty, more interesting, more visual than every other author doing the same.

When you have a publisher a lot of the publicity is done for you and there is already a fan base waiting for the next publication from that group. For me, and lots of others like me though, we have to try and find a footing somewhere and hope that enough people will read and enjoy our books to start talking about them. We hope enough people will write a good review and that if we can just keep at it… we might earn a living! 😉

I am extremely grateful for everyone that has taken the time to help push my name and books out there and if and when I can repay that kindness I will, which is why I decided to get involved in this great book giveaway and I will also be involved in similar events over Christmas!

So far I have been very fortunate to meet some other wonderful women/groups that have encouraged and helped to promote and support me…

Not to mention all the fabulous Twitter and facebook friends I have made over these last 6 months or so….

I can’t wait for 2018 and hopefully building more bridges into the world of Lesfic and its fantastic readership!
