Right about now, most of the A-Z Challengers are probably thinking this project is murder! About halfway through a blog challenge is when the going gets tough. It’s easier than usual for me having a narrow focus, that is, using letters of the alphabet throughout the contest. So today is M, and originally I’d planned to host a tour stop for Susan Wittig Albert’s new mystery novel, Mourning Gloria. But the tour has been pushed to later since the author is still on a live tour. I’ll talk about Murder Must Advertise instead.
MMA is a Yahoo!Group for mystery authors to share promotion ideas of any and every kind, and there’s no better place to find creativity and kindred spirits. I encourage you to join the group, even if you don’t write mysteries. Their discussions and suggestions apply to all writers, including (and maybe especially) self-published authors. Don’t waste a moment joining the group. It is a moderated forum, and each comment must pass muster by the list owner, so no worries about any wild and off-topic discussions. This is about marketing your book, and that’s what you’ll read about. But you’ll also meet a great group of people. Kudos to award-winning writer, Jeffrey Marks, for starting the group twelve years ago. Tell them Dani at Blog Book Tours sent you over when you join!
