Social Media = self-published book success??

So I wrote the books, got some reviews...but how do you get more eyes on it?  I recently joined #Twitter and connected with some other #SelfPublishedAuthors.  I asked them what the key to success was.  Their answer...#SocialMedia.  That means blogging, writing to bloggers, tweeting, adding hashtags to keywords, etc where ever I can.  So for the next 30 days I will connect in someway with social media each day and see if it nets more eyes on my latest book, #Rarity.  I'll keep you posted on the results of my experiment.

So far I have 12 reviews of Rarity, have had 411 free downloads, and 89 actual sales.  So...more eyes need to find my books.  Hopefully by the end of November these numbers will look different.  Keep you posted.

For the first time ever...Rarity free!


This weekend, Rarity is free to download on amazon.com.  Oct. 18-20, 3 days at the link above.  Share it, read it, review it.

This book was inspired by the brave people challenged with vascular Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.  It's a fictional tale about a young man who finds he's diagnosed with veds.  This rare collagen disorder makes his hollow organs and blood vessels extremely fragile.   But Rarity also explores what this disorder does to a relationship, to someone's self-esteem.  Reader's have stated that the characters are so vividly painted, it's like looking into the lives of one of the real life patients.

This book was written to educate and raise awareness of veds to the public and give hope to those challenged with it.

Download Rarity and see what the beauty of courage and unconditional love.

Rarity characters

Here are famous people who resemble the characters I envisioned for Rarity.

Brogen, not trying too hard to get noticed by the boys.  Without makeup, she can blend in with all the kids, but with makeup...look out!

Becca is confident, gorgeous, the blonde goddess...and she always gets what she wants.  All the boys want her, and all the girls want to be her....except Brogen.

Jay, has a slight athletic build, straight hair, and mesmorizing eyes.  He's confident but not cocky...and has the most magnetic personality.
