When you are an independent author like me, book releases are a tricky thing. In my case, I do everything except cover art – isn’t my cover artist, Ada Frost and photographer on this project, Sandy Whittington amazing? — and editing myself. I have some loyal beta readers that assist me along the way and I am grateful for those too. Yet, for the most part, everything falls on my shoulders. I use social marketing tools like Thunderclap and head talkers to get the word out about my books. I rely on fans like you to help spread the word, as does every independent author that I know. We simply can’t do this alone. If you like our work, please tell your friends, spread the news on social media and click on links. Today, I need your help because I have a Thunderclap campaign which needs more than sixty supporters. 15% of the net proceeds from the sale of Hearts of Jade will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
