Susan Toy provides a fantastic author promotion platform with A-R International and she has kindly reposted one of my recent visits to her blog. There is a wonderful list of authors, some of whom might be new to you and I suggest that you check them out.. Thanks to Sue for all her efforts in getting us in front of readers.
I have enjoyed a nomadic existence living in eight countries including Sri Lanka, Malta, South Africa, USA and Spain, before settling back here in Ireland. My work, and a desire to see some of the most beautiful parts of the world in the last forty years, has taken me to many more incredible destinations around Europe and Canada, and across the oceans to New Zealand and Hawaii. All those experiences and the people that I have met, provide a rich source of inspiration for my stories.
After a career in customer facing roles in the hospitality, retail, advertising and telecommunications industry, I wrote and published my first book in 1999 called Size Matters, about my weight loss journey, losing 150lbs in 18 months. This was followed by 11 further fiction and non-fiction books, including a number of short story collections.
My first book release resulted in a radio interview in Spain that led to four years as a nutritional consultant for an English language station, and this was followed by four years with my own health show and Sunday morning show on local radio station in the UK and then as station director, newsreader and presenter for an online television station.
As a writer I know how important it is to have help in marketing books and from 2002 I have been working with authors on their book launches and publicity. At that time it was very much physical book launches and press coverage locally to stimulate national interest.. Today it is very different with a global market via the worldwide web.
As important as my own promotion is, I believe it is important to support others within our community. I offer a number of FREE promotional opportunities on my blog, linked to my social media. If you are an author who would like to be promoted to a new audience of dedicated readers, please contact me via my blog. All it will cost you is a few minutes of your time. Look forward to hearing from you.
I first met Sally Cronin online, because of the offer she extended (above) to help other authors with their promotion. Over the years, Sally has been very generous with that promotion – to me and to so, so many other authors located worldwide, and I just can’t thank her enough for her unending work in this field. But Sally is also a good writer in her own right, and I’ve had the great pleasure of promoting her work as well and in reading her books … this one in particular I enjoyed! (Read below to see what Sally is working on next concerning this book.)
Please head over and I do recommend you check out the other authors in the archives too..
