International Fans

The trend I mentioned a while back of international visitors to this website/blog is continuing. I just want to take a moment to thank all of my fans for their continued support. But this post is especially dedicated to my fans living outside the United States of America. Thank you all!

Homepage

Recently I put up a blog post talking about things readers can do to help their favorite authors, and support them on-line—https://scottharpersblog.wordpress.com/2013/05/23/word-of-mouth/. Here’s something else to add to that list—bookmark the website for your favorite author(s). Visit them often from those bookmarks. If it’s a site you visit frequently, set that URL as your homepage.

Desirée Lee’s website is http://www.desireelee.com/. Mine is http://www.scottharper.net/. Please bookmark both. Setting one or the other as your homepage would be greatly appreciated, also.

Entertainment Industry Interview Subjects Needed

Desirée Lee and I recently began writing for “Nuclear Winter Entertainment”. We’re writing one article per week for the site. If you’re in the entertainment business—literature, comic books, TV, film—and would like some free exposure for your work and projects, please contact me. If I’m interested, I can make you and your work the subject of one of my “Nuclear Winter Entertainment” pieces.

Musicians and RPG gaming are also quite welcome. However, you’d do better to contact Desirée Lee. She’s far more knowledgeable about the music and gaming industries than I am. She can be contacted via her website—http://www.desireelee.com/

Bookworm Bags—Author Promotions

Desirée and I are members of an author promotion group called “Bookworm Bags”. Basically, authors on the group mail promo items to each other. That promo is put into “goodie bags” for giveaway. These bags are given out by everyone on the group. The more authors that partake in the group, the more each participating author’s promo items are handed out to potential readers.

This summer, at the workshop Desirée and I will be doing in Arizona, we plan on handing out a lot of Bookworm Bags. Any authors interested in joining the Bookworm Bags, please check out the site: http://bookwormbags.awesomewritersmuse.com/. There’s still time to get promo in for the batch of bags Desirée and I plan to pass out at the Arizona writing workshop this summer. Again, every author that’s part of the group hands out the promo. So, the more the merrier for the entire group!

Word of Mouth

Desirée and I are often asked by fans what they can do to help promote our work. Because this is such a common question, I wanted to cover it in a blog post.

The answer to the question is very simple—word of mouth. If you’d like to help promote our work—or the work of any other authors for that matter—simply talk to people about it. Family. Friends. Co-workers. People on the street with whom you strike up a conversation. Anyone you can tell; the more the better.

Social networks provide an excellent method for doing this, too. Post social updates such as, “I’m currently reading “Within These Stone Walls” by Desirée Lee”. What are you reading?” Or Tweet something like, “Just read “Quintana Roo, Yucatan” by Scott Harper. I loved that book, and hope he writes a sequel!”

Both Desirée and myself are on Facebook and Twitter. Like our fan pages on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter. Click the “Like” button on Facebook posts, and share those posts to your own Timelines. Favorite our Tweets, and reTweet them so your own Followers can see them.

Just by doing those few simple things, you can do a huge, huge amount to help spread the word about our work. Want to help promote your favorite authors? That’s a 100% free, simple way. Odds are you’re already doing those things for one or two big-name celebrities. Please take a couple of moments from your busy day to include us in that, too.

“Nuclear Winter Entertainment” “Aquaman” Article

Here’s the first “Nuclear Winter Entertainment” article by Desirée Lee, and myself: http://nuclearwinterent.com/?p=4881 Our topic for this one is the current “Aquaman” comic book series published by DC Comics.

Though I’ve been a DC fan for many years, Batman is my major character. I’d only met Arthur Curry—a.k.a. Aquaman—via “Justice League” and small cameos in other books. When the current series started up, I felt drawn to read it. And now Aquaman has firmly become a favorite character for me. This series, and character, are fantastic. Please check out the “Nuclear Winter Entertainment” article to see what Desirée and I have to say about it.
