Brandy Nacole (brandynacole) Okay, so I've been doing a lot of thinking on how to make my blog more interesting while also giving other indie author/businesses some promo and giving the readers some info. SO here's what I've come up with. I'm going to be adding some new pages:

Book Reviews



There may be more added to the list later but for now this is the start.

What will go on these pages. The book reviews are of course reviews of books I have read. If anyone would like for me to review a book you can email me here: bnacole86@yahoo.com. Any book requested for a review, I will gladly buy from the site you request. That way you still receive royalty.

Promotion page: This is were I give other indie authors/businesses owners the chance to leave some of their info for others to see and check them out.

The events page will host current giveaways, any event someone has, or blog tours that authors have running. This gives readers the chance to enter in some neat events/giveaways they might not have known about.

I will also be adding author interviews and features to the blog. Author days will be on Mondays.

Also on the first Friday of every month I will give a blurb to any book that I've written or am currently writing.

If interested in being featured on any of these pages, again contact me here: bnacole86@yahoo.com Let your friends know that are looking for some exposure and they can follow my blog and contact me for more info.

My blog: www.brandynacole.blogspot.com

Thanks Everyone.

Happy Readings :)

Brandy Nacole (brandynacole) Forgot to mention, I will also be posting links every time I feature an event, interview, review, etc., on my facebook page as well.

Brandy Nacole (brandynacole) This offer does extend to anyone. You don't have to be an indie author to participate. If you are a blogger, you can feature a link to your blog on the promotion page and any event you would like to feature that you have on your blog can go on the events page. Just email me the info at bnacole86@yahoo.com

Lola (lolasreviews) | 563 comments HI Brandy I checked out your blog and am now following it. I think your blog looks nice so far! I can't wait to see how your blog progresses. I also recently started my own blog and it is really difficult in the beginning to get some attention.

Brandy Nacole (brandynacole) Thanks Lolita! It is hard in the beginning and I'm hoping that all my new features, teasers, and plans will help build it up for readers and authors/bloggers.

It's essentially a virtual book tour around a bunch of blogs to try to get more exposure for a book. For example, with the release of The Moon Dwellers and The Star Dwellers, information on the books appeared on 20 different blogs over the course of 20 days, each day with something new, like a book review, an author interview, a guest post, a giveaway, or an excerpt from the book. They can be structured a lot of different ways but they are a great way to kick of a book launch!
