July was a busy blog month for Rachelle's Window Book Blog. I managed to find content for all 31 days. The guest with the most Distinct Comments is Book Blogger Laurie Jenkins with 18. Laurie wins a paper copy of Michal's Window. Thank you Laurie for promoting your interview and letting us meet new readers.
Broken Build beta is completed with 16 people giving feedback! A big thank you to the best beta team ever. Flara Richards won the E-reader and Cate Beauman won the $25 Amazon gift card. But everyone is a winner in my heart and be forever acknowledged and appreciated. Broken Build has gone to my editor's desk for a fall release.
In August, I started a new feature called #BookChat. It is a friendly way for authors to introduce the salient points of their books. I've reorganized and tagged all my posts with Twitter Hashtags to make them easier to find. The bonus is that blog tweets going out on my Triberr stream are automatically tagged. The same is true with the #AuthorInterview and #BookReview tags.
Your interviews, reviews and Book features are tweeted through my 8 Tribes with a potential reach of 458,577 twitter followers. In addition, I personally tweet your Author Interview through WLC Tweet Teams. But don't leave it all to me, as you can see, those guests who promote the best have the highest pageviews, and that's a win-win situation. And this month, my Alexa ranking has gone below 500,000K thanks to you!
I love reading great books and promoting authors and have begun taking some limited ad spots. For $20, I will take your book cover and create an ad for you, then post it for a week. The image is hyperlinked to your book's buy link. You get to keep your ad image and use it anywhere you like. Isn't that a deal? Send me e-mail through my contact form if interested. [Obviously I reserve the right to not take covers and interview topics at my discretion.]
And for a fun Author Interview between two of my most HILARIOUS crit partners, check out Lauren Stewart's Out of Blogger Experience on Christina McKnight's blog.
Speaking of Book Reviews, I found a wonderful image from my friend, Ara, at My Book and My Coffee. Every so often, I'll feature and list the books I've accepted for review. Some are purchased by me, others gifted by the author or publisher. If you're a blogger and would like to participate in "The Book Reviewer is In" meme, please visit this link at Ara's Website. Don't forget to add your site in the comments below and we'll encourage everyone to visit too. That's all for now! Happy August everyone!
