NEW BOOK ALERT! Coming soon, Never Retreat, from Imajin Books in March 2018. A feisty single mom clashes with an ex-military, macho corporate star at a retreat in the wild Colorado mountains.
READER REVIEWS WANTED: Online reviews are critically important in marketing books today. With the death of book review sections in print publications, people are relying almost totally on online reviews. If you would like a FREE ebook copy of my newest book, I’ll send one. I ask you to provide a very brief review online. I’ll send easy instructions. Email Bonnie@BonnieMcCune.com if interested. Thanks for your help.
SHORT EDITION FOR SHORT LITERATURE: A new site originating in France puts online, circulates and publishes five minute reads. Read wherever and whenever you like. Stories are beginning to appear in English, too. See www.short-edition.com And very soon we will be enabling all the English-speaking authors out there to offer their works to be featured on Short Edition!
GOING BACK HOME: Hometown Reads is a new service to promote local authors. Denver and Boulder both have sites now. Although still somewhat cumbersome to use (you can’t search by BOTH city and genre), you can search for Denver authors on that page. Promotion efforts are underway to encourage bookstores, libraries ant others to utilize the logo. http://www.hometownreads.com
REPORT ON BOOK READING 2016, EBOOK VARIATIONS: A growing share of Americans are reading e-books on tablets and smartphones rather than dedicated e-readers, but print books remain much more popular than books in digital formats. See results of Pew study at http://www.pewinternet.org/2016/09/01/book-reading-2016/
WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS
To stay in touch with me and help me reach new readers, try some easy activities:
• Visit your local library and either ask them to order my books and/or request that they check a copy out to you. IF they don’t have a copy, they can request the titles via interlibrary loan.
• Sign up for my blog and newsletter. www.BonnieMcCune.com/blog
