I decided to focus on another goal... a simpler one that doesn't take any real effort/money. When I reach 700 Twitter followers, I'll give away my Smashwords e-books, which can be downloaded in ANY format, for any e-reader or app. I'm only at 646 now... so we may have a while. If you don't want to wait that long, and want to support the arts, you can search "Roy Hudson" (that's me) on www.smashwords.com. Hopefully my attempt to reach more readers will be met with more success than the Christmas in July sale... or the birthday charity fundraiser.
I'm also in search of more blog guest posts. I recently got a request, but once I explained the purpose of the blog, despite the previous guest post, I didn't hear back. I would like other writers to share their experiences, process, and any tips they may have on writing. I look forward to reading any guest posts.
Oh! And a bit of news... In about 10 days, I'll be sharing a review of a poetry collection after my own heart: the proceeds go toward suicide prevention organizations. I'm excited about that. I just have to, you know, READ it. ;-) And on that note... I should probably go start.
So yeah, I'm looking for 54 new Twitter followers and new guest bloggers, and you can expect a review of Ambrosia from me around 8/31.
