Hello everyone. Another fabulous Marketing Monday tip is forthcoming. But first, I’d like to update you on my NanoWriMo 2012 progress.

Yesterday was day 4. I’ve reached the 15K mark and have 3 completed chapters. Not a bad start to such a large project. I’ve also reached over 1,700 Twitter followers! Thanks so much for all of your awesome support!

As soon as this posts, I’ll be off to work on my Nano word count for the day.

A great thing going around on Facebook right now is called “30 Days of Thankfulness” I think it’s a wonderful idea and am part of it too. Each day you name one thing you’re thankful for.

Day One: I’m thankful for my family

Day Two: I’m thankful for my friends

Day Three: I’m thankful for my health and that of my family and friends

Day Four: I’m thankful to God for always being in my life.

Day Five: I’m thankful for Jesus who died on the cross and paid a price only he could pay, so that we could be forgiven of our sins.

Now, on the marketing part.

Blog Hops are an excellent way to spread the word about your books. You are welcome to add an excerpt or even a complete chapter to the post, providing a buy link for the product.

Speaking of which from Nov 9th – Nov 12th, I’m participating in another one, again hosted by the fabulous Carrie Ann Ryan. It’s the “Autumn’s Harvest Blog Hop.” {post will go up soon} Feel free to stop by and join us.

Blog Hops allow readers and writers to connect, as well as connecting other writers with each other. Blog hops allow potential readers to see a sample of your writing, before they even consider buying the book, and they expose new readers to undiscovered writers and their books. It’s totally a win-win event, because even if you didn’t sell any books, you still gained a wider audience for future books.

You can be part of a blog hop even if you don’t write or sell books. Plenty of our fellow stops are reviewers, or simply bloggers. So check into it and see if you like it. At the very least it drives a lot of traffic to your blog.

Have you ever been a stop during a blog hop? What did you think of it? How did it help expose your blog?
 Are you thinking of joining one? Why, or why not?
 As always feel free to ask questions, share your experiences, or just comment. :)

About kittyb78

Catrina Barton is a licensed Kung-Fu Instructor of the Black Dragon style, and draws on that experience to make her fight scenes both realistic and action packed. She enjoys being surrounded by the stark beauty of mother nature. Whether it's a moon-lit starry sky, or a picnic by a peaceful waterfall cascading from the mountain side. Growing up no matter where she was physically, she always had at least one book in her hands and spent every free moment lost in a book. It's only natural that as she grew up, her passion for reading grew into an even stronger passion for writing, especially Young Adult Paranormal Romances. She is a proud member of many writing and marketing groups, and an active participant at Critique Circle and several other crit groups. Favorite personal quote: "An author cannot grow without both constructive criticism and encouragement."
