So Much To Learn

I have wrapped up my blog tour for Crashing Hearts and I must say I had a blast doing it.  I met some great authors and readers in the process.

As I am promoting my book, I am finding there is quite a learning curve with the promotion process. Where do you start?  As you know I started with my blog tour.  I have used social media, .i.e. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, to help get the word out there. Word of mouth is great as well. There have been some reviews posted on, which is exciting for me to see.

As I continue on the journey, I have become more active in Goodreads.  This is a site for readers and authors. You are able to review other books, have people review yours and more. At this juncture, I am involved in a giveaway for Crashing Hearts. The link below will get you there if you are interested in trying to win a free book.
