This is an exciting space for authors to promote their books.
It'll be launched August 4, 2008.
(In the meantime, work to this blog and slotting authors will be done and posts about useful things to writers might show up as well)
Book promotion can be hard.
It doesn't have to be.
This is a space where authors can have free promotion and also a chance to network with others in the writing craft.
Here is how it works:
1. Authors Promoting Authors will post a book cover and blurb.
2. The next author on the list will take the post that was up before theirs and post it on their blog.
Its as simple as that.
It is the theory of "If you tell five people, those five people will tell those five people."
