Hello everyone and welcome to Wicked Wednesday with me, April Zyon. Today I’m talking about asking your fellow authors / bloggers for help with pimping your books and how much is too much.
We all ask each other for help in “pimping” our books. We all help each other (or we should, we are all in this together you know) and because of this there should be some measure of respect because of this.
So this is just a bit of me jumping off from where Michelle talked about My Way or the Highway.
This is all about logic and respect, and again this is just me and my spin on things.
First of all, if someone hosts you on their blog, takes the time to work your document into their blog then you need to thank them.
Secondly, if you send them a blog post try to send them not only a word document but also a html document as well. (I’m sure someone will cover media kits soon, if we haven’t already)
Third, if you have a word document with images embedded into that document, please always send the images separately but don’t overwhelm your host with 10 images in one blog post! (PLEASE!)
If you look at your word document and your word document is 10 pages long – not the html – the word document – its FAR TOO LONG. Seriously. If your document is over 6 pages long WITH images in it – its too long.
- Be respectful
- Keep it clean
- When your host comes back to you and asks you to host them as well, return the favor
- Don’t give multiple choices for excerpts, choose one to send to your host
- Don’t send multiple documents to your host (ie: one doc for social media, one doc for blurb, one doc for excerpt, one doc for buy links, etc)
- Thank your host
That’s it for me folks 🙂
Now, on to some beautiful man candy. I love the man candy. ❤
Today’s images come to you from one of my favorite Facebook communities, Hottest Men with Tattoos. Go over and give them some love. ( I do not own these images, they belong to the photographer and model.)
