Once Again, I was asked to help a friend with continuing this Para Blog Hop.
Quite happy to do it, actually and frankly, I suggest other authors take up the challenge. There is something quite rewarding about recommending someone else’s work and, of course, writing and promoting about the friendships we extend throughout the Web world is really to demonstrate approval, loyalty and support, as we would with our real world friendships.
I foresee web friends to be as important as the ones I entertain in my life. Sometimes more so, as online, we often share the same goals and the same dreams… dreams will keep us coming back.
A dream of mine was to launch my first book. Only, dreams being a maze of ideas in one big haze cloud, I didn’t know the first thing about how to go about doing this, how to plan, or what to wear, what to bring … nothing about a launch party, especially not a virtual one.
That’s when I stumbled across Jessica Gibson. A friend recommended her services as: A Party Planner. She calls herself the Release Day Diva.
Prompt, organized, helpful and extremely positive, she understood the jitters and the fears grumbling in my head and held my hand through the process. Even when deadlines had to be pushed back, she happily noted that this would only give us more time to prepare.
Don’t know how she does it. She is the mother of a little boy, entertains many of these parties, has a day job, and takes time to write. Actually she has several books out there, one of which she just launched last week, Chasing the Witch.
Jessica Gibson’s book:
After the events of Mark of the Witch, Jilly at last begins to breathe easier though her powers are still growing. But can she harness them in time to confront a new chain of events that threatens to change everything?
Caroline has finally accepted her life as a witch, but when a stranger comes into her life she’s forced to question her family loyalty.
The sisters are thrown together to protect a young girl from the enemy determined to hunt her down. Can they save her — and themselves?
Here is what she says about the Party Planning:
“I started doing the events last June after I did my own event for my first book. So many authors approached me after that because they loved what I had done for myself. After that. I threw myself into it. My goal is to take some of the pressure off of the author in the days before and on the actual release day. There are so many things to worry about when you’re launching your book, throwing a fabulous event should not be one of them. It makes me so happy to see my authors enjoying their day.”
Thinking of her next launch or next story perhaps…
I just want to give a resounding thank you to Jessi, the angel who helped me promote my book.
By the way, in case you are wondering, the book Jessi helped promote is Mirror Deep.
DANGER AND ROMANCE…
…Roll like thunder in Kat Bonner’s world, when a known felon comes to the ranch to drop a bomb about her past. Kat turns to Pierce for help, the same Pierce who bucks her every chance he gets … and whose feverish investigation lands them in trouble with the law and directly in the path of a serial killer.
Mystery deepens, fraught with wrong turns, bumbling detectives, old murders, and Kat’s doppelganger no one ever sees but her, just as she never sees the change in Pierce’s feelings toward her brewing, mounting, until she can no longer deny them.
Looking for gentle readers for both books, so please go check out both of them on Amazon.com.
