  • Gender Reveal parties July 25, 2014
    I’m hearing about this new trend in the baby world: the gender reveal party. What happens is the doctor or sonogram tech writes the gender in a sealed envelope which is then delivered to a baker. The baker then bakes either a pink or blue cake with neutral frosting. Then a reveal party is hostedRead more...
  • Songs of Summer July 22, 2014
    It happens every summer. An ear worm hits the airwaves and it’s in your head all summer. Some I like, some I could live without. (Remember the summer of Gangam style). This summer, I’m humming along to Imagine Dragons, On Top of the World, Fancy by Iggy Azalea, and I could live without Happy byRead more...
  • Pokemon Tournament July 9, 2014
    This weekend my boys begged me to drive them to a local Pokemon tournament at a local comic/collector shop.

The Heat is On

Having grown up in Miami, I am a big Heat Basketball fan, but I’m not actually referring to the basketball teacm with my title. I’m referring to the fact that Heated Match is getting some great buzz!

Mama Mia from Mama Kitty reviews says “This book draws you in: begs you to devour it, relax with the characters–stay awhile. These characters, Loren and Adam are, on top of being nuclear hot, sweet and loving. Moreover, this novel speaks of real issues—physical disability and the ever-changing world of science.”

*Swoon*

Heather from Sizzling Hot Book Reviews says “A good writer knows how to suck a reader into their story within the first chapter of a book, but with Ms. Silver’s writing style, I was literally engrossed after reading only two pages of Heated Match.”

With all the chatter in the blogospher about sock puppet reviews, it feels great to get real (good) reviews from real reviewers (AKA book lovers)

So this leads me to wonder…how do you find your next read? Is it Amazon reviews? NYT lists? Word of Mouth?  I’m starting marketing budget and plan for 2013 and I want to know where to put my dollars? Should I blow it on attending a reader focused conference such as Authors after Dark or Romantic Times? Should I do banner ads? Swag (do keyrings and bookmarks sell books?)

Authors want to know! Help us find you.
