Blogging is a useful part of a writer’s promotional mix. The internet audience is worldwide, and whatever time of the day or night, there’s always somebody on line somewhere. Unlike High Street book stores, it never closes. Writers love to hear from their readers, and blogging is a great way to keep in touch. You write a piece you hope will interest, entertain and maybe excite people, then post it online with some eye-catching illustrations. The usual advice to write about what you know is perfect for blogging. An update about your work in progress is a great way to keep your readers informed. Knowing you have an audience waiting for the next installment of your struggle to get those words in the right order is a great incentive to update, too!

The only downside of blogging exclusively on your own site is that you tend to be preaching to the converted. People like your writing, so they drop by to say hello. A blog tour takes this to the next level. You become a guest blogger on other people’s sites, offering your words and maybe a giveaway or two in exchange for being introduced to a whole new audience. This too has its problems. There are so many calls on a writer’s time, whether work-related or domestic, setting up a blog tour can seem a daunting task. It’s one thing to write the blogs, but organizing everything and keeping all the records up to date is something that has to be taken very seriously.

I’m currently doing a blog tour to publicise my latest release for Harlequin Mills and Boon. Weight of the Crown is a Modern Romance, and I love it so much I want to bring it to the attention of as many people as possible. That’s why I was so pleased to hand all the work over to Romance Book Paradise Promotions. Nas has done a terrific job in sorting out sites for me to visit, keeping a detailed spreadsheet of comments logged and prize winners and liaising with the website owners. It’s taken a real weight off my shoulders. All I’ve had to do is find out what form the site would like my blog to take. They may have an interview in mind, a list of questions they want answered, or subjects they want covered. If there’s nothing specified, then I use my imagination. On Sunday 13th November, my blog o Totes Bags 'n' Blogs centred on how to spend evenings on the run up to the holiday season. Here in the UK it’s dark by teatime, so there’s plenty of time for crafting, and writing too. We were snowed in here last winter, which was when I wrote the first draft of Weight of the Crown, so that tied in well with the subject of my blog. Once my piece was up on the site, I checked in regularly to answer any comments - for me that’s always the best bit of blogging. With the dedicated page Nas set up for Weight of the Crown, Christina Hollis- Author Page this was easy to do. The page appeared on my Top Sites page, which comes up each time I switch on my computer. All I needed to do then was click on the sidebar listing the relevant date and venue of my tour, and I was taken straight to that day’s blog.

My first blog tour has been a great experience, and the benefits of letting Nas organize everything have been obvious from the start. All I’ve had to do is write, and that suits me perfectly!

What sort of blog posts do you like to read? There’s a signed copy of a book from my backlist on offer for a comment picked at random. Comment on Romance Book Paradise to win!

International Contest - Heart of the Desert

Back of the Book

Sheikh Prince Ibrahim refuses to bow to the duty that has destroyed his family, by locking away his emotions and shunning his royal responsibility.

Georgie is just the kind of woman duty demands he should avoid—streetwise, troubled and not interested in being queen—exactly the challenge Ibrahim seeks.

Trapped among the swirling sands, in the burning heart of the desert, Georgie finally surrenders to the brooding rebel prince—yet the law of his land decrees that she can never really be his.…

Dana Marton is the award-winning author of several romantic suspense novels that feature fast-paced, gripping action set at unusual locations. International intrigue and unstoppable passion meet in her stories to create books that are impossible to put down and are sure to become reader favorites. Dana has come to writing after a business career and never looked back since. She shares her home with her family, two extremely loud and messy parakeets, and about a gazillion books that are threatening to collapse the shelves.

When not writing, she can be found either reading or gardening — two of her other ruling passions in life. To find out more about her and her latest releases, please visit her web site: www.danamarton.com.

Black Sheep Sheik is the exciting conclusion to the six-book miniseries Cowboys Royale that I was asked to write with five other authors. I hope you’ll check them all out. Together the books tell the story of a brotherhood of royals who come to the United States on business and end up finding love. But each book is enjoyable on its own, having its own rollercoaster plot and heart-warming romance. Happy reading!
Back of the Book

Waking up from a coma in a remote Wyoming cabin, Sheik Amir Khalid thought he was dreaming when he laid eyes on the woman he'd spent one steamy weekend with. Dr. Isabelle Andrews was every bit as gorgeous as he remembered—and nine months pregnant. But when shots rang out and it was clear their hideaway had been discovered, Amir's questions had to wait. Desperate to keep Isabelle and his unborn baby safe, Amir vowed to personally guard them 24/7. And as the independent beauty fought him at every turn, he knew it wasn't just royal protocol that made him want to keep her by his side. He'd give up everything that was expected of him if it meant protecting the family he'd only just met. Including his life.


What is Harlequin Intrigue?

Here is what the publisher says: “Taut, edge-of-the-seat contemporary romantic suspense tales of intrigue and desire. Kidnappings, stalkings, women in jeopardy coupled with bestselling romantic themes are examples of story lines we love most. Whether a murder mystery, psychological suspense or thriller, the love story must be inextricably bound to the mystery where all loose ends are tied up neatly…and shared dangers lead right to shared passions. As long as they're in jeopardy and falling in love, our heroes and heroines may traverse a landscape as wide as the world itself. Their lives are on the line…and so are their hearts!

This contest is International and will end November 30th. To win a copy of this book, simply follow Dana on Facebook or follow Romancing the Desert - Sheikh Books.. Don’t forget to leave your email address so that you can be contacted.
