When was the last time you were a guest on another blog, or was interviewed? Sue Vincent has a guest today robot Lisa Burton who is the personal assistant to author Craig Boyack and she conducts interviews with authors.. but struggles to fill the slots. As Sue points out that between Sue, The Story Reading Ape, Lisa Burton’s interviews and my blog you could be reaching another 100,000 eyes for your book and your blog. I often say that modesty does not become a writer.. Thanks Sue for the mention and I hope that it encourages more to take up our opportunities for FREE book, author and blog promotions..
