M is for Murder

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!

MMA sounds fun. I've never written mystery, but that sounds fun to me too!

MMA must be a good group if it has survived for 12 years. All my writing is a mystery to me.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
