New Business: I Need YOUR Help

I'm starting a business. That's right, it will be called Shooting Stars Promotion and the idea is to help authors with their publicity. I know not all authors really get a publicist that focuses on their novel...leaving the author with most of the work and having to spend more of their own money. I want to help...save you money, find the best ways to spread the word about the book, answer all your "do I need this..." and more questions, etc. I will have a website up soon and will need help spreading the word but right now if you are a 2010 and 2011 author (doesn't have to be a debut) and want to learn more, let me know! I'm in the process of figuring out prices right now (don't worry, they aren't too high because I'm new and I want to build up my client list!). I do, however, have one client already and that's where the rest of you bloggers come in.

Author: Linda Gerber
Book: Trance

It comes out in October and I want to start building the buzz NOW, so I need all you bloggers to help me out. I'm planning a fun summer event and we need people to be willing to donate swag, a book, or anything else a book lover might enjoy (gift cards, etc.) so please email me if you want to be involved. I did email a lot of you already (so check your email!!) but if not, that doesn't mean I don't want your help...get in touch!!!

And again, if you know of any authors looking for publicity help or you are an author, let me know as well and we'll figure everything out and get started.

Oh this sounds like a good idea. I'm a "writer" but I've haven't gotten to the point of publication yet. Someday soon...I hope. I might bet interested in jumping in and sharing the news about this book.
