Extra! Extra!

(stay in paper boy character and continue reading these headlines!)

Lisa Regan Book Launch Today!
a spine tingling mystery!

Nancy Thompson's Mistaken on W4W!
a totally twisty thriller!

W4W = Writers 4 Writers and it is finally open!

This wonderful concept was invented by Stephen Tremp, Mary Pax, C.M. Brown, and Christine Rains. They had the genius idea to
• Help writers bring awareness of their books
• Drive new traffic to their blog and increase following
• Create verbal and viral buzz.

How do they intend to do this you ask?
Every month, one to three spotlighted authors will choose a social media and on the selected day, the authors will post pre-written Tweets on their blogs.  At your convenience, simply copy and paste Tweets into Twitter. Or go to #W4WS on Twitter and Retweet other Tweets.

And for Facebook, the authors will also post an image of their book along with a short blurb and a link to Kindle on their blog. We help each other by sharing the link with FB friends and Writers' Groups.

That’s an incredibly large new audiences the author could not reach on their own.  Imagine a hundred bloggers over a few days Tweeting and sharing links for new books and reaching thousands of new people! Sounds exciting! Can't wait to see how it goes for Nancy!
