How to Write your Free Promo Post
Please write a lively post that will engage readers as well as promote your book. I will not post straight promotions or excerpts. If you want to share an excerpt—and I highly suggest you do—please provide a link to your website where readers can read the excerpt and can also find out more about you. If you don’t have a website—you can provide a link to a post in Facebook, LinkedIn, or other social media.
Readers love to get a peek inside your life and/or your writing process, so write a post for Sorchia’s Universe about your hobbies, your passions, your favorite foods/vacation spots/pets/etc. Sadly, we need to steer clear of anything that is overtly political. We live for the paranormal here in Sorchia’s Universe, so share ghost stories and folklore.
Top ten lists are great—Top Ten Best YA Fantasy books (or whatever genre you write in); Top Ten Songs to Listen to on Dark and Stormy Nights, Top Ten Salad Recipes for Halloween (or Christmas or Easter…).
Include buy links and a short author bio. Include the blurb copy and cover image. An author picture is good, too.
Please keep the total word length around 600 words–a bit more or a bit less isn’t a crime.
Almost anything goes. I don’t mind naughty words and steamy romance—stopping short of erotica. I do mind things like prejudice, bullying, discrimination. Please include a trigger warning if your post touches those issues or on rape or domestic or gun violence. These are topics that should be discussed, but let’s not catch anyone unpleasantly unawares. I won’t post stuff about cruelty to animals or children. Send questions to me at SorchiasUniverse@sorchiadubois.com.
Save the content as a Word (.doc or .docx) or .rtf file. Save images separately as jpegs . Please don’t send images bigger than 300kbs.
If you have not already done so, please schedule a date on THIS PAGE.
