September Author Interview: Author #1: D. G. Kaye

D.G. Kaye

D.G. Kaye was born and resides in Toronto, Canada. She loves to read, shop, travel, and play poker when she gets the chance.

Kaye has been writing about her thoughts on life since she was a young girl, as pen and paper became her emotional outlet. Through the years of compiling her thoughts and memories in a journal, she wrote this book as a cathartic release. Kaye wanted to share her story in recognition of the many people who struggle with their past, shedding light on how powerfully a mother can impact a child throughout her life.

This is Kaye’s debut book. Her newest book, Meno-What? A Memoir, a humorous satire on menopause, was released in June of 2014.

MARSocial Special Interview: Question & Answers #1

Hello everyone! So, finally we received all answers from our participants from MARSocial author network. Are you excited to read the answers yet? Question #1 is from author Coleman Weeks and his question is “How do you promote your work?” 

Let’s see how all 11 author participants promote theirs!

1) Coleman Weeks

I promote socially and am always on the lookout for innovations in that sphere.

2) Viv Drewa

My first novels and stories I self-published. Now I have a publisher.

3) K. J. Rollinson

Facebook, Twitter, Google+, WordPress, Pinterest, Emails, my website, weekly marsocial dragon post blog, various writing groups. Social contacts. Car sticker. List of my books appear in every publication of my books, published on Amazon. My Amazon author’s page. Book Weeks organised by Wordplay Writers Forum at least once a year,(I am a member). Wordplay Writers Forum Web page, Occasionally articles appear in the local press, T.V. Choice Magazine, ‘Writing Magazine UK. Video on You Tube.

4) Sam Reese

In a variety of ways: Facebook groups, word-of-mouth, my website, my publisher’s website, etc. Pretty much any way I can promote I will try at least once.

5) Neil McGowan

   I use a combination of social media and promotional sites such as iauthor. It needs an investment of time to do, and sometimes it feels like an uphill battle, but it does bring results. I’ve also had some success with word-of-mouth, and through reading extracts or short stories at local events.

6) Marion Lovato

I promote my work through Social Media as well as websites that accept excerpts or offer promotion for free.

7) Jaro Berce

I use several different channels ranging from conferences to blogs. Conferences are mostly more professional oriented but my blog and guest blogs are more opened to topics. Also TV and local media work fine for personal promotion. The hardest part in promotion is what I’ve finally found out, i.e. it is not about promoting oneself but your book or writings. 

8) Marie Lavender

I do whatever I can.  I make as many connections as possible on the various social networks.  I post about my books, but I also post about regular things too.  I do author interviews, character interviews and guest posts whenever I can on other blogs or sites.  I also post on my three blogs frequently.  I have author profiles in various places.  I also take out book cover ads on different sites.

9) LaRae Parry

To launch a new release, I do a Facebook Event announcing the new book. For my latest release, I offered a four-day free download. That shot my book to Amazon’s #1 ranking in the two categories it was listed it. That really helped.

10) Theresa Moretimer

 I Tweet, use Facebook, Blog and have a magnet of my book on the side of my car that has a picture of the cover of my book, w/ the title and my name and website.

11) Annie Edmonds

Good one to start things off Coleman. I promote my work the old fashioned way, and it’s hard work.  I do have help when someone shares my book or blog. But mostly it’s me sharing to twitter, Facebook, Google, And my blogs.  
I also had Jas and her team at IBP.com make a trailer for my book and that has been an amazing tool. 
 

The next question is from Theresa and her question is “What made you choose the genre you write?” Stay tuned with us for the next post tomorrow!

Anne Conley: April Author Interview Participant #1

About her in her own words:

I’m a former high school teacher, who took some time off to raise goats, and children. Living in a rural Texas town has taught me that life won’t come to me, I’ve got to grab what I can get. So, I started writing for public consumption. I live in a rural East Texas town with my husband and two children, and at the moment, 42 goats. I am currently writing two series, the Stories of Serendipity, about life and love in a small town, and the Four Winds, about God’s archangels “falling” in love.
