Great Advice For Authors…

Stephanie Hurt - Romance Author

Good morning! I do hope all of you are staying warm. As for me I’m sitting beside the fire wrapped in a blanket. It’s only 12 degrees here in my part of Georgia which is not funny for this southern girl. It’s a beautiful day outside from the bright sunshine, but then you step outside and it hits you like a ice wall. Not even going there!

On to my post for the day… How do you promote your book? Or do you even do any promoting? For me I do promote when I can. Some authors say that they can’t afford to do a lot of promoting, but I have some good news. You can do some really good promotions for free. Yes I said FREE!

Here are some of my favorite free promotional places:

10,000 views, Wow!

In my two and a half years doing this blog, I can say it’s been wonderful. At first I was uncertain about it. I thought I’d become stumped and have problems coming up with the goods to make it happen. 😉 But I’m a writer at heart and that hasn’t been a problem. Usually I have to tamp down my need to post more than once a day.

The friends I’ve gained through this blog have been, well what can I say, heartwarming, true and just plain out great. I’ve met so many people from all over the world and gained personal relationships with many. We email each other, join together for blogs and so much more. It’s just phenomenal how it all works.

So, this is to all my friends from all over the world. Thanks for the comments, likes, and all the warm friendships that have made it…

What inspired you to write this book?

Bryony marched on to the page fully formed in The Right Side of Mr Wrong, and after I finished that book she refused to go away until I’d given her a story of her own.

I love watching pro cycling, and I’m fascinated by the mindset of the top…

Until this series, I’d always only written romantic suspense stories.  Initially the idea of Sienna came to mind – a powerful witch destined to protect the balance of nature.  With her duties and responsibilities comes great dangers so the idea of a Keeper came to mind – someone to help her…

1) What inspired you to write this book? Jennifer was a character in my previous two books in the series (SAFFRON NIGHTS and CRAVINGS) and I really wanted to challenge her character in this book and wanted to give her a happy ending. So the character of Jennifer inspired me.

1) What inspired you to write this book?

This story has been my easiest to write so far because the characters and central plot emerged as I wrote the previous two books (Waking up in Vegas and The Trouble with Mojitos). So by the time I sat down to write this one, I already knew…
