Hya Chaps and Chapettes (scribes and readers):
We're trying our best to get the BeWrite Books Blog up and running again.
This time so that it’ll promote you and your books, your own sites and blogs, buying info, your thoughts, raves and rants, BeWrite Books in general, and be bursting with news and fun to attract the readers ... the guys right at the top of the food chain who determine your value as authors by blowing the cobwebs off their credit cards, and who might even take the trouble to review your work.
We don't want this to be a dry sales blog. We know you have info, comment, anecdotes and jokes coming out of your ears that will give readers an insight into what your work has to offer. And we want readers to tell us what's right and what's wrong.
WWW.BEWRITEBOOKS.BLOGSPOT.COM is as dim as a Toc H lamp right now and has about as many members as the Kalahari Caber Tossing and Clog Dancing Society. SIXTEEN followers! I’ve seen longer bus queues. We need hundreds …. thousands … to flog your books and attract the very best of writers and readers.
This place could really be helpful if a buncha folks registered and commented on posts – or even went so far as to suggest posts of their own. The Blog is picked up at places like FaceBook and Twitter to spread the word even further … and it’s all about spreading the word, isn’t it.
If you’ll just read it and recommend it, that would be finest kind. Contribute a little and it would be even finester kind and we can use it as the basis for a quarterly BB newsletter for reading and writing pals if you write with good sense and/or good humour.
If you’re unsure about what you want to say, just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll help.
Put it this way, people … it will take less time to sign up and drop the odd note than it would to send me an email to say why you can’t be arsed. It’ll also save me the bother of coming over to your house and terrorising your pets.
Please do help out – for everyone’s sake.
That is all. Neil
