Authors for Authors

Two men—Kenyon a street cop, and Teo a social worker—come together as they try to help a seven-year-old boy abandoned by his mother. Neal, a young boy abandoned on the streets by his mother, is found by policeman Kenyon Hagerty and instantly bonds with him. Social worker Teo Marino becomes involved when the boy is placed in the care of Human Services. Soon after, the body of Neal’s murdered mother is discovered then later Neal’s father tries to kidnap him from the kids’ home. Kenyon is a man looking for real love, while Teo is the consummate playboy, going from one man to another as the spirit moves him. And yet these two men, truly yin and yang, are drawn together. It takes a misunderstanding to force them to face their feelings for each other. When Neal runs away looking for Kenyon—who he believes will adopt him—the two men must make a decision regarding Neal’s life—and their own.  Publisher's Note: This book was previously released by another publisher. It has been revised and re-edited for release with Totally Bound Publishing.

Today’s Authors for Authors is about promotion.

Here’s the biggie: theories on promo, self-promotion vs. spamming, and what is your social media quota for each day or week?

The answer comes from Edward Kendrick again, per request of the readers.

I promote each of my books about a week before they’re due out, and then on the day they come out, on my Facebook page, my blog, and on several Facebook groups—as well as some Yahoo groups—that I belong to. I’ll also let people know when I get a good review, or make a best-sellers list. I try to keep it to that because I don’t want people to get the ‘Jeez, I’ve already seen that ten times’ feeling. I do put links to my books, with the cover image, on the sidebar of my blog, and the cover images with the publisher’s name on my Facebook banner. That’s about the extent of my promoting. Too little? Perhaps. But I’m not willing to take the chance that people will get tired of seeing ‘Buy my book/books’ every time they turn around.
