Every person that uses electronic marketing needs exposure for their business, their novels, their ideas. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to just place something on the Web and hope that it’s going to get discovered.

Yes, we can self publish our work, but we also need readers, clients that might want to purchase our work. We need EXPOSURE in order for that to happen. Why should I be bothered to read or consider your novel when I readily enjoy Christine Feehan, Sherrilyn Kenyon or Michael Peterson? Who are you?
I was contacted by and organization an I love their concept. Please note this might not be for everyone, but it works for me. Welcome to the Voracious Readers Only List!
I’m skeptical of emails from unknown addresses and 9 times out of 10, I automatically delete. Not time to read and not interested. This caught my eye and peaked my interest. In a nutshell sign up to be a Beta Reader for other authors in your genre, review them Amazon, Goodreads, Smashword, Nook and submit a completed work that you don’t mind giving free samples of. Get your own work reviewed by others. Not only do you get reviews of your novel, but you might also get a sale if they enjoy it enough to want to keep a copy. I have submitted two of my works so far.
Who doesn’t enjoy getting new ebooks for FREE to read?
I’m not soliciting any affiliate program. I’m getting getting any perps for suggesting this. As one new author to many merely suggesting this might work for you. It’s worth a try.
