I’m so happy to finally get back to the Writer Wednesday posts! This week, I want to talk about social media for authors and how effective social media are for promoting your book. Do posts on platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. really work or is it all wasted time and effort? Let’s find out.

It’s only a week until Snow Way Out releases, my Snowed In – Valentine’s Inc. book. You can preorder it now! The Valentine’s Inc. books are all complete stand alones that are only connected through a shared premise, in this round the trope of getting snowed in… I love forced proximity stories, haha, and Snow Way Out was a joy to write.
About Snow Way Out
Quentin, a smart, sassy, bossy twink from California is in upstate New York to do research. But when his car breaks down and a snow storm is about to hit, he finds shelter with Mac, a guy who is twice his size, a good deal older, and who looks like he could crush him with one hand. Plus, he’s straight. Or so Quentin thinks. [Read more…] about Teasers from Snow Way Out
I’m super happy that a lot of new readers not only seem to be finding my Ignite series, but are loving it. The first book, Ignite, came out well over a year ago. It took much longer than anticipated before the second book, Smolder, released. But it came out earlier this month, and encouraged new readers to give this series a try.
When I released Smolder, I promised you guys wouldn’t have to wait long for the third book, Burn, and I’m keeping my promise. Burn will release February 29 and will be the third and last book in the Ignite trilogy. You can preorder now!
I discovered earlier this week that Firm Hand and Gentle Hand had landed in gay erotica again on Amazon, rather than in gay romance. I’d done an update of the files with new books that had come out in the back matter, and Amazon had recategorized them as a consequence.
The problem with that is that erotica doesn’t show up in search results and is banned from advertising, so your visibility is a lot less. Besides, these books are definitely romances.
I think the biggest culprit were the covers. Firm Hand especially had a sexy cover and I had already been banned from advertising with it even when the book itself was still in gay romance.
You can protest this and usually, Amazon will put you back in gay romance, especially if your book was there before, but it’s a major hassle. To prevent having to go through this every time I do an update, I decided to redo the covers. And you guys get to see them first!
Welcome to this week’s new releases, 99c deals, and freebies in gay romance! We have some wonderful new releases this week, including two Snowed In books and the new release from Lucy and Sloane I’ve been looking forward to. Other than that, we have some fresh 99c deals, and some new freebies. Happy clicking and reading!
This is not a paid list or ads, but simply deals I’ve found and books I’m excited about reading, so all personal recommendations from me. If you have a book you’d like to see listed, you can submit it, but that’s not a guarantee I’ll list it.
