This week, I am a guest at Molly Greene’s awesome blog, sharing all I know about promotion and audience building through social media contests and giveaways. As a host for two virtual book tour companies, I get to see first-hand the methods both traditionally published and indie authors use to promote their books and gain more followers and fans. In the post, I talk about:
- Why you should host a giveaway
- Where you could host it
- What you could offer as a prize
- The code of conduct
- Free and paid tools to help you with the process
Read the post in its entirety, here.
Thank you, and if you don’t follow Molly’s blog already, look around her site. I’m sure you’ll find plenty of reasons to do so.
For a sensual romance story set on a beautiful Greek island, pick up Fate Accompli, free through Kindle Unlimited. Read in its entirety on the same day by whoever picks it up (according to Kindle Edition Normalized Page Count stats).

Maria, thanks again – so much – for your generosity in sharing your experiences on my blog. You ARE a wonderful resource, and one of my favorite online meet-ups. 🙂
Umm, it’s the other way around, but thanks!!
I see 150 twitter shares on Molly’s site, Woohoo! I am not surprised, this is another excellent post, Maria. Well done 🙂
Pfff, the previous one on how to build a media kit got over 1.000 shares, so I’m not impressed 🙂 Thanks for the positive vote, though.
