This week’s Guest Writer is author, Brenda Scruggs. Here, she writes about her innovative marketing idea:

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. I’ve promoted on blogs, been 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

Delighted to welcome Brenda Scruggs to the Cafe and Bookstore with her book Many Hats of a Lady: Ladies of Entrepreneurship released in October 2017.

Prayer Teams for Authors!

Prayer Teams for Authors!

Have you considered a prayer team for your book?

A prayer team is like a street team. You gather as many people as you like to pray for you and your work. The prayer team can be used in aspect of any business.

It’s not being arrogant asking people to pray for your work, it’s wise. Proverbs 15:22 says, Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors (prayer warriors), they are established.

Being a prayer warrior myself, I can tell you first hand that prayer works.

Don’t be shy- prayer warriors are just that, they enjoy praying for people and their reward is seeing you succeed. A true prayer warrior will not be envious. They want to see how God will move in your life.

REMINDER: Dear Book Bloggers (and others promoting authors) – Guest Post by, Yecheilyah Ysrayl…

Great Advice.

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Hey Gang,

Sooo, I am technically not around right now. I am on a vacation of sorts. I will however dip in to respond to your commentary whenever I can. Thank you for your patience.

Before I left, I wrote this post to share something that’s been on my heart. Instead of keeping it to myself, I thought we could all benefit. After all, authors gotta stick together, right?

Now, if you promote authors then this post is for you. (Authors, don’t go anywhere. I got something for you at the end of this.)

By promote authors I mean that you are essentially doing some form of:

  • Book Promotions
  • Book Reviews
  • New Releases
  • Interviews
  • Shout-Outs

OK so I threw shout-outs in there but you get the point.

This is a reminder because we’ve seen it before. You know her asDG Kayebut I like to call her Debby because…

Looking for Reviewers!

BookCoverImage[1]

I have a few ARC’s if anyone is interested.

Book Blurb:

After the war between the North and South, in a time that seemed impossible to mend division, can Lacey Mills and Daniel Bartlett be able to let their differences dwindle to let love flourish.
When an opportunity presents itself for Lacey Mills to follow her dream, she didn’t think twice even though, it would take her to the South. A place she never thought she would go since it claimed the life of her father during the war. Yet, her hands had designed some of the prettiest hats that anyone had seen and her dream was in reach. But, would her dream turn into a nightmare after encountering Curtis Kirkland. A man destined to sabotage her dream and make her his willingly or not. Instead of, opening her own Millinery and Chocolate Shop would she end up being forced to work for her previous employer.
Daniel Bartlett still didn’t favor Northerners and especially a fiery red head wearing colorful hat wear. He knew she would be trouble and wouldn’t entangle himself in her affairs, no matter how attractive she appeared. But, when a certain scoundrel targets the redhead, would he let her suffer at his hands or would he conquer the war that was raging on the inside of him and let the feelings for her turn for the better.

Why You Should Still Be Going To Bookstores

Charlotte Harter makes a great point. When was the last time you visited a bookstore!

Ah, yes. Bookstores. Remember those? They were great. But does anyone actually go to them anymore? In an age where everything is digital, it’s hard to keep the bookstores alive. But guess what? We have to. And here’s why.
