Last full post for the evening and if you’ve come this far, you already have lots to read.
If you’ve been here during the blog take-over, you will have had the chance to interact with me. If you’ve come late, you have more chances!
Answer me this: “Where will we meet next?” (virtually or in person)

Some of the events our authors are doing this week.

Random Acts of Promotional Kindness by Brita Addams
Something occurred to me when I shared the link to Jacob Flores recent chat on Dreamspinner’s Facebook page. What if more people shared links to chats, reviews, blog posts, the buy page for an author’s book? Readers, bloggers, publishers, and authors alike, sharing that which is important.
From this thought, I launched Random Acts of Promotional Kindness. The concept is simple – just share, like, retweet, add, follow, comment on blog posts, and otherwise help out your fellow authors. Encourage your readers toward other authors they might enjoy. Share a sale the publisher is having or a giveaway that a fellow author is sponsoring. Send readers to the stops on a fellow author’s blog tour. Readers, send your friends.
How can you help? Offer up guest blog spots on your blog, then promo the appearances. If you read a good book, let your readers know. Readers, follow your favorite authors, talk about their work, spread the word about their reviews and new releases. Even their old releases!
RAPK has a Facebook page, where anyone can post promotional goodies, with the hope that others will pick it up and pass it on. But that’s only a start. Carry the kindness over to your own pages as well.
Writing is a solitary pursuit, but promotion doesn’t need to be. We all know how difficult it is. I hope that we can help each other out, and make it a little more pleasant.

A few days ago, Becky from mrsconditreadsbooks.com sent us this e-mail:
“We’ve created our first Special Event for this book. One of our reviewers has a teenaged son who was assigned by his teacher a year-long project to study something of concern to society. He chose gay marriage. Part of this assignment was to read a novel on the topic. As you can imagine, his mother had quite a time finding an age-appropriate novel that she felt comfortable letting him read, but another author recommended The British Devil and both of them enjoyed it very much.
I’ve posted the mother’s comments as well as the teenager’s review. It does contain some spoilers but that was part of his assignment so we put a warning on the review. We are donating $50 to the It Gets Better Project in honor of this young man’s hard work, and are encouraging others to donate to the gay rights cause of their choice.

This is the only post for that day, as it is a Special Event.”
We at DSP are extremely humbled and honored that one of our books was chosen for this cause. That is why we are offering 30% off both the e-book and paperback of The British Devil from Jan 31- Feb 3 to encourage people to read it for themselves. All the royalties from this special sale will be donated to the It Gets Better Project.
We want to thank Matthew and mrsconditreadsbooks.com for this special event.
The DSP Team.
