More promotion, reviewer, and tweet sites

 

Cats BookstoreWhen I’m writing I put aside lots of information to use for marketing when I’m done. This blog is the result of checking out book promotion and other sites from new twitter follwers/following. For a list of sites I visited previously see Top Promotion Sites – Sell, Book, and Kindle on Multi-musings. I like to share, but if you appreciate my efforts here, I’d love it if you’d read and review Something Fishy in Manhattan – it’s free in Kindle books on Amazon, August 2 and 3. Just sayin’.

I visited each site, but don’t  endorse any of them and am not responsible if your favorite tweet service isn’t included. I just want to make it easier for authors to find the type of site they need.

I suppose it would be nagging if I reminded you that Something Fishy in Manhattan, a Lieutenant James Mystery, is free on Amazon August 2 and 3? I don’t mean to pester, but I think you’ll like it.
