Graffiti Promotions ~ New Promotions for Authors

When I fired up Writers Ally, I had no idea what I was doing. I wrote a few introductory posts and then began surfing the blogosphere, where I eventually found all of you. We've shared our hopes and dreams, likes and dislikes. We've even had some amazing conversations and debates about the ever-changing publishing world.

Just like some of you, the more I established myself as a professional writer the less time I have to blog. My main focus through the Alleyway has been to grown as an author and help other like-minded peeps do the same. That's the reason I began the Graffiti Wall in the first place.

But since I signed with an agent and have had much interest in my YA novel, I've had to rethink how I do things around here. The one thing I was sure of: I wanted to keep the Graffiti Wall alive! So today I'm launching a new endeavor, one I hope you'll enjoy and spread the word about.

Welcome to Graffiti Promotions!! It's similar to my regular interviews and help in promoting authors' work, journeys, and books. But organizing it this way frees up my time to write, while still giving authors the opportunity to promote themselves with my help.

I've created three forms ~ AUTHOR INTERVIEWS, BOOK PROMO, and CHARACTER INTERVIEW. Links to all three are now permanently at the top of my right sidebar. These are for authors, freelancers, illustrators, publishers, editors, etc... (The location of the links is subject to change, due to the creation of my official website, which I've yet to launch. But I'll make sure it's fully visible.)

So you or a friend say: I want to be featured through Graffiti Promotions. All you have to do is choose a form, fill it out giving me the information I've asked for, and I'll write up a post and schedule your release. Of course I'll notify you of the date of release. This is perfect for launching a blog tour, too. You can fill out the form and request a specific date.

Whatch'ya think? Good idea? Who's the first taker? I can't wait to find out!!

I'd be honored if you'd tweet about this and share this on any social media. It's here for all writers out there to spread the word about their work and become forever a part of the Graffiti Wall.

  20. Hi S. A.
    Cool! Found this through Alex. I tweeted and Facebooked and I'll mention you on my blog. I don't have anything scheduled at this time but I've learned some exciting news about short stories that I intend to share on my blog once my Seven Deadly Sins and Your Hero series is over. I am currently working on numerous projects and will stop by when one is done. Should be in a month or so.

    Thank you for this opportunity.
    Nancy
