As anyone who visits this blog regularly (or even looks at my Facebook page) will know, I recently had a short story accepted into a Dreamspinner anthology.
It’s a thrilling first for me, but once the excitement wore off, I started wondering how to promote it – I mean, it’s great to be published, but what good is it if no one ever reads your masterpiece?
I’m new to the writing promotion game, though I’ve been on FB, Twitter, Google + and Pinterest for years promoting my day job.
I’ve seen some great ideas in the groups I’m a part of, including FB author interviews, page takeovers, giveaways, blog tours, and the like.
My question to you today – what have you done to promote the release of your new books or stories? And what really works?
