Put The Reader First

Today, the lovely Susan Blexrud has invited me as her guest on the group blog, Embrace The Shadows.

Embrace The Shadows regularly hosts authors and books. They also run a cover contest that's always a lot of fun. I'm a sucker for great covers.

I end the blog tour with my personal philosophy on promotion in a post titled: Put The Reader First. There's also a burning question I left for you at the end. I hope you'll pop in and visit.

Where I've been:
Thursday: ParaJunkee  (enter here for a chance to win Apocalypse Rising)
Friday: The Galaxy Express  (enter here for a chance to win Apocalypse Rising)
Tuesday: 'My First Book' with Misha where I'll talk about world building.
Wednesday: 'RT Reviews' Chicken Zombie Apocalypse
Thursday: The three layers of promotion at 'Tony Eldridge'.

I promised you this would be a short tour. Hope you enjoyed the posts!
