My Guest - Love A Happy Ending!

This week, I am so pleased to have Love A Happy Ending, sitting in my guest chair, Love A Happy Ending is a new and exciting web site for new authors and readers. So please help yourself to a glass of bubbly, sit down in the shade and meet Linn Halton, founder of this amazing web site.

"Hi Pauline,
Thank you so much for inviting us to drop by and the warmest congratulations on the success of your latest novel Sometimes It Happens...! We love following your career and what stands out is that you are having a great time with your writing! Your cover is everywhere and certainly brightens OUR day! And when it comes to champagne corks popping, we do have something in common……. is a new and innovative, interactive Reader/Author website. It launches on 29 June 2011 with a competition to win lots of our new Authors’ books.
This is all about READER POWER and readers being able to get to know our new Authors and helping to raise their profiles. We have 30 ‘invited’ featured Authors; our aim is to launch their careers so they can vacate their ‘spot’ and another new Author will then be invited to join us.
Readers come forward to ‘link’ with our new Authors as their Associate Readers and help by reviewing their work and using social media to get the author’s name out there! Sometimes Associates will receive free copies of books to review, or may be asked for their opinion on work yet to be published. It’s all about a love of books, having fun and demonstrating that READER SUPPORT can make a difference.
Most new Authors don’t have an advertising budget and are a team of one promoting themselves. Being one of the invited new Authors at immediately gives them a network of friends and fellow authors, all going through the same processes. But it is our wonderful network of Associate Readers, whose feedback and support will enable our Authors to grow in confidence and ability. And that is ‘the difference’.

Once Launch Day is over the aim is to attract sponsorship, so that Readers, Authors and Sponsors can work as a team. We will be celebrating our sponsors involvement on our website and a sister website coming in the near future! Not only will their sponsorship buy copies of our new Authors’ books, those books will then be auctioned for charity! Our Readers and new Authors will be using social media to promote our kind sponsors and the blog will be reporting it every step of the way!

Our blog will be magazine style and feature articles about the interactive experience, the lives of those involved, plus inside gossip and you can read ‘Shaz’s Stars’ to see how astrological influences affect our new Authors! So lots to see and lots of ways readers can get involved.

So thank you for inviting us Pauline, I know the whole gang will be frequent visitors here! Sometimes It Happens... is going to be a great success and is a brilliant example of how hard work, wonderful writing and an Author with heart is what it is all about!

What a fantastic blog and I am really proud to be one of the 30 authors involved with this brilliant website and group of lovely people! We are so looking forward to this coming Wednesday when the website is officially launched and hope lots of you will join us!! My great associate readers have not only reviewed my work but given me invaluable advice on what pieces to select for competitions and will be having input on choices for future book covers - how many readers can say they've had that experience? You can join us and help shape an author's career! Well done Linn and its great to have Pauline in our gang!
