The Biggest Shop Window!

Before I launch into my idea of the biggest shop window on the planet, I would like to share with you those precious moments when I can think and work out new concepts. Every morning at first light we take our two little doggies for a long walk along the seafront. It is the most beautiful part of the day and few people are about as we make our way along the long wide pathway watching the sunrise brighten our island. The dogs run along sniffing at odours that only they can detect, OH and I chatter to each other and some mornings we just enjoy the peacefulness of the hour. It was on one of these morning that I thought about how to create more awareness of not only my three published books, but other published books too and here they are.
One: I would like to offer authors an opportunity to have their book cover on my Blog for one month in return they have one of my book covers on their Blog for the same period. No cost for either parties, but a little more exposure for each author.

To give you an idea of how it will work, take a peek at the top of my side panel. The very first thing you will see is this months sponsors, this is a free test to show you what it will look like.
Also at the change over of book covers, I will do a new Blog about the authors and adding a link to their Blog or web site

Two: 1st sentence. I trialed this with earlier Blogs and have now added this special feature to my side bar. So if you would like to feature there and also add this feature to your Blog, we can talk. So please take a peek and see what you think.

If we can work together to help each other widen the net of awareness of our books, we can all look to sell more copies of our beautiful stories.

If you are interested please leave a message in the comment box or visit my web home page for my contact address and email me.

Let us work together to make our shop window the biggest on the planet!

Hi Pauline - I think indie authors cooperating is the way to go. I have not quite got to the point of publishing (yet?!?)but will certainly keep an eye on what you are up to. I'm sure it will be a great place to get noticed. AliB
