Mary Nickum Now that the giveaways are over and the book has been out for 10 months, how do I get readers to visit my page on Goodreads? I have a blog that doesn't seem to draw readers. Any suggestions?


message 2: by Mary

Mary Nickum Thanks, Don. I'll check your website. The ebooks sound interesting!
Blessings,
Mary


Donald Parker Hi Mary,
Thanks for the friend request. I'd be honored if you'd check out my work at My Website. You can download any or all of my ebooks for free. I think you'd find All the Voices of the Wind very interesting since it deals with science.
God bless!
Don
