Smorgasbord Weekly Round Up… Music, Poetry, Book Promotions, Health and Humour

Welcome to the weekly round up with the posts from the week that you might have missed.

We had a glorious run of good weather for about 6 days that came to a halt on Thursday with some rain (good for ducks and the garden). We managed to get lots done in the jungle and we now have much more light in the back of the house which is fantastic.

This next week I will be around but I have two books to finish and so have loaded the posts up in advance and will be in later in the day to check on them and to also visit the blogs that I follow. There is a slight change to the line-up with the Blogger Daily on hold until 22nd May.

I would like to remind you that there are two new ways you can get involved with the blog and promote your own posts or your books at the same time.

Cook from scratch

Darlene Foster provided a wonderful cake recipe this week and you will find the post below. It will show you what the finished post will look like and Darlene received 100 views so far  and so it is also a great way to promote your work.

I am looking for a recipe that uses mainly fresh ingredients and you cook from scratch. It can be an old family recipe or one you have used for years and is a favourite. If you have a picture of it that is great but I will find something to illustrate the post.  If we have not met before I will need your links to your work and social media and a photo of your would be good. If I have promoted your before I will have your links.  All I need is the recipe to sally.cronin@moyhill.com

Smorgasbord Poetry

If you would like to share your poetry then please send with your links etc if we have not already been in touch to sally.cronin@moyhill.com.. Perhaps one from your archives on your blog or a new one you would like to share here first.

Thank you for all the wonderful support this week and I hope you will pop in next week to see what I have prepared for you.

William Price King

On this coming Wednesday we begin a brand new series with the star being Mr. Stevie Wonder. This week I reblogged William Price King’s last interview in the Creative Artist series along with the links to all his previous posts for Jazz and classical artists. I hope you will pop in and check those out if you are new to the blog.

Book Marketing and Promotion

When you have written ‘The End’ and your story is over… what follows that in your book.. are you using it to promote your past work or what is coming next. With Ebooks you can link directly to your sales page. If readers have enjoyed this book they may be very willing to buy another.
