Valerie Day Sanchez guest posts on my blog today! She is a YA author, like me, and has a few words of wisdom when it comes to marketing a novel. It’s time to stop being shy, and start talking yourself up! :)

Robin Clark Hello Sarah, thank you for being my friend.
Peace and happiness be with you,

Diann Shaddox Hi Sarah, It's nice to meet you. I'm introducing my new book, A Faded Cottage, a SC love story.Quaid Witherspoon is a man turning fifty, a man with success and money, a world acclaimed artist, but a simple feat of holding a paintbrush turns Quaid’s life upside down
when fate steps in. I'm spreading the word about Essential Tremors and for each book sold a donation will be given back to the IETF. Thanks
A Faded Cottage by Diann Shaddox

Kimberly Thanks for adding me as a friend Sarah!!!!

Carole Hullo Sarah, it's good to meet you and to learn what you are doing with yourself. I'm into crime fiction and currently have four books out. You can see them here if you are interested - on that site you can also read freely given a short story or two, or even a free chapter from one of my books.

Harlequin Books Hi Sarah, thanks for being a friend. I’m looking forward to getting to know you. I want you to know that if you ever have any questions about the books on my shelves or about, I would be delighted to answer them. Also, I list as much eHarlequin news and author news as I can so be sure to watch for my updates.

Happy reading,
Kim S., Harlequin Books ambassador
