Following several other Oak Tree authors, I have an interview up at Cafe of Dreams. I really enjoyed April's questions, which were not the traditional questions usually asked, and she also included information from my website about me and Gumbo Justice, which was nice. The link is http://www.cafeofdreamsbookreviews.com/
I really like the look of the Cafe of Dreams website, and April's organization of the site. As difficult as it is to come up with new blogs, I wonder if anyone thinks it would be easier, better, or more interesting, to include regular features on a blog, such as one day a week do an interview, one day a week a book review, or if that just adds work to already busy schedules.
I also wonder from a promotion standpoint if it ultimately exposes more people, or at least different people, to a blog, and if it ultimately results in sales.
One thing I do believe is that it would help promote other authors, even if it doesn't ultimately result in book sales of your own, and that the positive energy you put out there comes back to you in some form on another, so it might be something worth considering.
One last thing- on Blog jog day a while back I i signed up to receive a series of free online videos about blogging and using websites for promotion by Denise Wakeman, of the Blog Squad. One thing she really encourages is posting a short video on your blog, and swears it captures attention better than just writing. I am not one of those people who feel comfortable posting my face all over my blog, and am not entirely sure my yat accent is going to drive people to buy my books. Any thoughts in this area?
