What Can Readers Do to Help Authors?

Posted Posted in Romance Reviews

Often readers don’t know how to help their favorite authors. Here are a few quick tips. Even though doing all of the below would be absolutely awesome, we know you’re busy so ANY of the below you manage would really help other readers discover our books. How you can help support Escape with a Hot SEAL #HotSEALs  1. GET SOCIAL: Follow me on INSTAGRAM, Like my author page on FACEBOOK, Follow me on TWITTER @Cat_Johnson then LIKE what I post. (It might be an IMAGE, or a QUOTE GRAPHICS, or a link. Even better, is if you have the time to COMMENT and SHARE the posts. The way Instagram and Facebook are set up, the more love a post gets (comments, likes, shares) the more they will show it to other users, and comments and shares count more than likes. Also you don’t have to just share what I post. Feel free to post something as simple as “Reading the new Cat Johnson Hot SEALs release and loving it!” or something equally nice 🙂 Pro Tip: photos are pure GOLD on social media. Posting a pic of your eReader with the book cover showing and your favorite drink as you get ready to settle in to read, or a picture […]

RT Book Reviews says FLANKED is “smart, sassy & intensely sexy”!

If you’re not a romance writer or an avid reader, you may have never heard of RT Book Reviews (formerly known as Romantic Times, not RT). If you think back though, you may remember seeing me posting or heard me talking about “going to RT” which is author-speak for attending the huge (like 2000 people big) Romantic Times Booklovers Convention held each spring and sponsored by the aforementioned RT Book Reviews magazine. Now that you have the background I can get to the good stuff. RT reviewers can be tough, for lack of a better word. To get reviewed by them at all can be tricky. I personally consider a 3 star review from RT a rave and to date, that’s all I’ve ever gotten from them. I’ve seen big name authors get 2 stars, at which point I empathized, cringed and held my breath yesterday when looking for reviews for my September Studs in Spurs eBook release, Flanked, to send to my publisher.
