Author Spotlight Brenda Scruggs

My interview on Aurora Alexander’s site! Thanks Aurora for having me.

Writer's Treasure Chest

Welcome!

1. When did you start writing?

I took journalism in high school, which peeked my interest. I wrote my first book in 2009.

2. What motivates you to write?

I believe the written word can transport a person to a different time, place, and where dreams can come true. It brings the imagination alive experiencing diverse emotion.
I write contemporary and historical romance with a hint of suspense. I enjoy keeping the reader on edge wondering what’s next.

3. What genre do you write in and what made you chose this particular genre?

I write muit-genre’s. But lately, I started a Historical Romance Sage, “Ladies of Entrepreneurship.”
I grew up riding horses, even barrel raced when I was younger, and I love the western era.

4. What is your goal in writing? Do you have dreams where your writing should take you?

With my latest series, I hope to…

Announcing My 2018 Interview Series

Author Don Massenzio

Hello,

With the new year, I’m announcing a re-vamped author interview series. During the past two years, I have interviewed nearly 200 authors and have compiled these interviews into an author directory. I would like to add to this list in 2018.

My current plan is to post one author interview per week on Fridays. I have a new set of questions that should give your readers deeper insight into your writing process. Since I’m limiting these interviews to one per week (a maximum of 52) I will be spending more time making them look good to help you drive more readers to your work.

These interviews are open to those of you that have participated previously. If you have something to promote or just want to increase your exposure across a new group of followers, please come and participate. Please feel free to share this post with your…

Thinking outside the Box with a car magnet!

IMG_1813[1]

Thinking Outside the Box!
Well maybe, inside the box.
For an author, marketing is something we are continually working on. I enjoy finding blogs that think outside the box on promoting. Some of the ways I have promoted are on blogs, featured in interviews, social media and so forth.
But today, I am trying something new, thinking outside the box by broadcasting my work inside the box, that is putting my work inside a (box) frame of a car magnet. Yes, a car magnet, the one that sticks onto the side or back of your vehicle.
God can give us witty inventions, so I’m trying one.
My husband works in a metropolitan, driving almost an hour a day to work on a major interstate. Yeah, we love the country life. So, I got this idea. He is on a super busy interstate twice a day at least an hour at a time depending on traffic, so why not advertise my book with a car magnet. It would be seen by almost a hundred people a day, if not more.
Even if, you don’t travel a major interstate, I believe it would still promote your work in everyday travel and would be a plus when you went on vacation. Just make sure that you have a few copies of your book with you. Who knows you might just sell them.
This is my short tidbit on thinking outside the box with book promotions.
Happy Traveling,
Brenda Scruggs
Author of, “Many Hats of a Lady”
