Marketing Strategy Idea

I would like to get a long list of writers with blogs (with at least forty followers) together to help get the word out about our books.  To participate you would need to have at least one book or ebook available for purchase.  After I compile of list of interested writers with blogs, I will organize it and send out the list to everyone.  Then each week we will do an Author Spotlight on one or two writers (depending on how many are interested in this).  The posts must include a summary of the book(s), maybe a short exerpt, and the links for purchase. 

At the very least we will get exposure on several different blogs.  Maybe the writer should even do a short interview introducing themselves to these blog followers.  That might be fun.  What do you think?  Does anyone have a better idea for how we could do this?  I'm open to suggestions.

If you are a writer (with at least one available book) and a blogger (with at least forty followers), please email me your blog link at kblake234@hotmail.com
After I check out your blog, I'll be in touch.
Happy blogging!

I've been asked to lower the number of followers on participating blogs so certain people can join in. Okay. Done.

Hi K.C.,

It's Mary Merrell and I just finished Vampires Rule. Great book. I'm impressed. Not all self-published books are that good. I would like to reveiw it on my blog. I spent some time working on my blog this weekend. I couldn't find anything current about getting a following button, or whatever other people have to get followers. Do you know anything about wordpress? I want to be a part of your group. What if I started a facebook for my blog and got followers that way? Would that satisfy your criteria. Let me know. mary_merrell@sbcglobal.net.
