The Benefits of a Writer’s Group
A few months ago Mimi Barbour, creator of The Authors’ Billboard, a group of over thirty bestselling romance writers, came up with the ingenious idea of setting up box sets varying in size from six to eight books and enrolling them into the Kindle Select program.
The hope was to gain new readers, and of course sales, of our individual books. We started out with two or three sets, just to see how they would do.
There was such a fantastic response from our readers, three more followed. Then three more, then… well, you get the picture 🙂
As quick as we could put them together, they were getting read; to the tune of millions of pages read (Kindle Select’s method of determining how much to pay authors from a fund Amazon adds to each month)
It has proven to be a snowball effect, benefiting the group in ways we never expected.
We’ve become stronger as a group.
Friends who have each other’s backs. We support and promote new releases. Celebrate achievements. Share information. Build on our successes. And commiserate our failures.
No matter what, we know there’s someone who will listen when we need advice.
If you ever get the opportunity to join a writer’s group, I highly recommend giving it a try!
If you’d like to meet our group and have some fun at the same time, stop by November 29-30 at our 2nd Annual Christmas Bash on Facebook. There’ll be plenty of chatting, games, and giveaways! You don’t want to miss the party, we’d love to meet you there!
Reviews are the lifeblood of any successful author. Without you, we can’t be heard.
If you enjoy the story, please consider sharing on your favorite social media sites, as well as GoodReads and from wherever you’ve bought the book and visit us online for great deals, interesting blog posts, contests, and much more!
We’d love to have you subscribe to our blog and to sign up on for our Weekly Newsletter.
