Blogger Help: Let's Talk Online Friendships


If you've been following my blog for awhile now, you may have noticed some posts about the movie Ask Me Anything, which is based off the novel Undiscovered Gyrl by Allison Burnett. What's even cooler than a book-made-movie is that Allison himself put the film together, so you know it's the way he would have wanted things (kind of like The Perks of Being a Wallflower book/film). Anyway, Undiscovered Gyrl now has a novella sequel out called Another Girl and I'm trying to helping Allison spread the word.


If you want to read Another Girl, either read Undiscovered Gyrl or see the film (they both give you the information you need and Ask Me Anything is available now on Netflix for free!) Once you've done that, you just need to grab a copy of Another Girl.

I've spent the last week sharing this information (and more) with various bloggers via email. However, I wanted to post about it here in hopes that more people will see this and want to help out. Also, be sure to check your blog emails if you think I may have written you already!

The idea behind Another Girl is essentially online friendships. The novella is more suspense and mystery than a lot of the online bloggy friendships we all have, but to go with that basic theme, I wanted to see if bloggers would help me out with promoting this book by doing the following-

1. Post something on your blog (this would make a great discussion post, I think) about online and blog friendships. Do you have any? What has your experience been like? Any particular bloggers you are close to and want to make a shout out? It's essentially up to you - anything on online friendships is a go!

2. Along with this post, please post something about Another Girl. You can say you haven't read the books or seen the film (be honest and open to your blog readers) but do let them know you are writing about this topic because of the book. The little amount Allison and I would love to see about Another Girl is that you post the cover and a link to Amazon so people can check it out. You can post links to Ask Me Anything, Undiscovered Gyrl, write more, etc., but you only need to do that little amount along with this post!

Now, I know bloggers are busy and maybe you want to help but don't have time to make a whole post. You can still post about the novella in a weekly round up or some other general post that you may post on your blog!

Thank you so much for reading this and I appreciate all of you! Please get in touch if you would like to help in some way or you have already gone ahead and posted something. You can email me at: lauren51990 AT aol DOT com

I did get your email and I will try to get to it this weekend! I do want to take part in this even though I haven't seen nor read the books.

Maybe just a guest post or blitz post?

I have never even heard of this book, but I'd love to write about the online friendships I've made throughout the years. I don't have very many real friends so I value my blogging buds.

Thank you for sharing this! I didn't know there was a follow-up to Undiscovered Gyrl. I'll have to get Another Girl soon. I came across Ask Me Anything on Netflix or Amazon and started watching it without realizing it was based on Undiscovered Gyrl, but when I did, I grabbed my copy because I knew I would want to read it again. And I will.

Sounds fun. I don't have friends though. Kidding. I'm going to check out Netflix too.

What a novel idea for a promotion, really genius really. I didn't get the email either and although I don't have time to post anything (with so many review copy reviews backed up for the next few weeks), but happy to share via social media and link up to all the posts to help spread the word. Looking forward to your post too Lauren <3

Online friendships are such a hit or miss for me. I have blogger buddies, but have only gotten to know a few past the blog.

Cait @ Paper Fury said...

I haven't ever heard of these so I definitely need check them out since online is LIFE for me. XD hehe

Shannon Miz said...

I got your email and I will definitely try to post something, even if just in my weekly wrap up! (The beginning of the month is always rough for me, but I promise to do my best to get something together!)

I'm with Kelly :) I would be more than willing to share any links on my social media accounts, and will see if I could add it to my schedule :)

I didn't see an email from you - but I've been woefully behind on email. I'll check it out and share in some way!
