Stepping Out From Behind the blogging computer #wwwblogs

Stepping out from behind the blogging computer

Our group Our group

What does it take to dig a book blogger out from behind their computer? About as much effort as it does to dig out an author!

In a bid to step out of my book reviewing bubble, I’ve been pushing myself to go out and meet new bloggers and authors, and I’ve been inviting along several others, too.

Our latest road trip was to Leicester to meet with the ladies from the Romantic Novelists’ Association (RNA). Joining them at their monthly meeting in the Belmont Hotel, we were made to feel very welcome by Lizzie Lamb and our hosts. From my book review team came: Terry Tyler, Cathy Ryan and Shelley Wilson, and Terry’s sister Julia (Proofreader Julia) asked if she could come too. We also managed to get Georgia Rose and Mark Barry to meet…

August 2016 is Write An Amazon Review Month! By @TerryTyler4 #AugustReviews

Reblogged from Terry Tyler’s blog

#AugustReviews ~ because every little helps 🙂

August 2016 is Write An Amazon Review Month!  

On Monday 25th July, book blogger Rosie Amber wrote this post encouraging readers and writers alike to post a short review on Amazon for any book they’ve read and enjoyed ~ following this up, I’m starting this initiative along with other writer-bloggers including RosieCathy from Between The LinesBarb TaubShelley Wilson and Alison Williams
The idea is that, during August, everyone who reads this uses their Amazon account to post just one review on one book that they’ve read (but feel free to carry on if you get in the swing!).  You don’t even have to have read it recently, it can be any book you’ve read, any time. The book does not have to have been purchased from Amazon, though if it is you get the ‘Verified Purchase’ tag on it; however, if you download all your books via Kindle Unlimited, as many do these days, they don’t show the VP tag, anyway.

Best Seller by Terry Tyler @TerryTyler4 #Contemporary ‘Three writers – one dream’ #TuesdayBookBlog

  • BestSellerAuthor: Terry Tyler
  • Kindle Edition
  • Category: Contemporary Fiction
  • five-stars

Three women, one dream: to become a successful author. 

In the competitive world of publishing, success can be merely a matter of who you know—and how ruthless you are prepared to be to get to the top. 

Eden Taylor has just released her second best-selling novel as part of the three book publishing deal with Austen House. The pre-order sales rocketed and took the book high in the ratings before it was even released. Eden is riding a huge tide of popularity. But all is not as it seems and Eden’s celebrity style existence is at risk.

When Mick Taylor found out that Jan Chilver was dead, bolts of ferocious lightening would explode across the sky, for sure.

New Twitter Hashtag #TuesdayBookBlog from Rosie Amber’s Book review Team #RBRT

Sharing this post from Terry Tyler and Barb’s brilliant photo!

RBRT (1)

Because it’s a hashtag for book posts only and the team are hoping that authors, readers and book bloggers will benefit. The new hashtag will come into effect on Tuesday, 3rd November.

Most Twittering bloggers know about the benefits of ‘blog share’ days; it all started with Rachel Thompson and her fabulously successful #MondayBlogs.  Now, there is also #wwwblogs on Wednesday (Wednesday women writers), #SundayBlogShare, #ArchiveDay on Saturday, and probably others, too.

Since Rachel started #MondayBlogs, she’s been battling against people using it for book promotion; her view is that you have six other days of the week to promote your books, but #MondayBlogs is about the writing itself ~ in other words, blog posts about anything other than your book!  She now states that there should be no book promotion of any sort on #MondayBlogs, not even third party reviews, which is understandable as there are so many ways in which her guidelines can be abused.
