Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Weekly Round Up – 9th – 15th August 2020 – Intuition, Nat King Cole, Apple Roses, Children’s Books, Reviews, Health and Funnies

Welcome to the round up with post you might have missed on Smorgasbord this week.

I hope everybody is doing well.. I am sure that like me you are watching the headlines and keeping up do date with not just your own country’s progress with the pandemic but also on a worldwide basis. At this point all we can do is remain safe and avoid covidiots that seem to think social distancing and masks do not apply to them.

On a positive note...I have made a few tweaks to new book releases from August 26th  that I hope will increase exposure for the authors concerned. If you are already in the Cafe and Bookstore you new book announcement will be added to the Cafe Updates on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. I hope that the fact that there are four authors in the post, it will generate more views for your new book. Over a period of a couple of weeks they usually generate an average of 150 views and multiple shares on Twitter and Facebook.

If you are a new author to the Cafe and Bookstore I will post the usual introductory promotion with bio etc.

This is the latest way to share your work and I now have some wonderful stories of defining moments in the lives of authors in the Cafe and Bookstore. It would be wonderful to share your stories too so perhaps you could read the post and read my story so you can see how it will look.  The series begins the last Sunday of August and I am now booking for the second week in October.. Look forward to hearing from you.
