All of my Enduring Authors were debut authors once upon a time. This cover art is from Lisa Shearin’s debut novel. https://kimberliauthor.com/category/enduring-authors/
I’ve had such fun with my Enduring Authors that I would like to feature Debut Authors weekly too. I remember my debut novel back in 2010, very exciting. I’d gleaned so many promo ideas as a book reviewer. Of course, things have changed a lot since then. Now, a blog tour company can do most everything for you…for a price. I can do most of what they do…for free.
I cannot create graphics for you.
I do not have any tour hosts. It’s just me here.
Every Debutant Author will be expected to send a guest post on his or her journey to publication and what they learned along the way.
I can do Cover Reveals, Showcases (cover, blurb, and links,) Interviews, and Excerpts. I can share all these on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads.
I can also Review your book, if I like it. I don’t have time to read books I don’t like. Sorry. I understand tastes are subjective, so I don’t need to like your book to feature you as a Debutant Author.
However, I won’t feature Erotica, Erotic Romance, or Horror that relies on blood and violence for appeal. Nothing personal. It’s just my imagination is vivid enough, thanks. I also won’t feature books in which a child is deliberately harmed on the page or a nanny is portrayed as anything other than a committed professional or the Hero is a selfish jackass and I’m expected to believe he’ll be magically transformed into a faithful partner by great sex. Personal pet peeves.
I reserve the right to decline any book without explanation.
I’ll post about one Debutant Author once a week, first come first serve.
And I’ll keep you posted on this developing feature, because it’s entirely possible I won’t have any takers. If you’re on the fence, I would just remind you of this Pearl of Wisdom:
No one can buy your book if he or she does not know it exists.
