Writers4Writers

 
Christine Rains, Carolyn Brown, Mary Pax and Stephen Tremp are hosting Writers4Writers to promote fellow authors via social media websites.
 
Mission
~Help writers bring awareness of their book(s) to tens of thousands of new people
~Help writers reach Amazon Top 100 in at least one category (i.e., suspense, free, whatever)
~Increase sales of their book(s) after the promo is over
~Drive new traffic to their blog and increase following
~Create verbal and viral buzz
 
Every month, one to three spotlighted authors will choose a social media avenue such as Twitter or Facebook (or both). On the selected day, the authors will post pre-written Tweets on their blogs. At your convenience, simply copy and paste Tweets into Twitter. Or go to #W4WS on Twitter and Retweet other Tweets.
 
And for Facebook, the authors will also post an image of their book along with a short blurb and a link to Kindle on their blog. Visitors simply click the Facebook page then share the link with their FB friends and Writers Groups.

That’s an incredibly large new audiences the author could not reach on their own. Imagine, a hundred bloggers over a few days Tweeting and sharing links for new books and reaching potentially tens of thousands of new people!

NANCY S. THOMPSON, author of The Mistaken will be their first recipient.
 
Writers4Writers is starting on Thursday, December 6! Don't miss it!
 
Make sure you sign up on the Linky list! I already have! I'll be promoting and supporting authors via my blog and Facebook! Woohoo!
 
See you all tomorrow for the Oh, How I Miss You blogfest!
