If you’ve read Marketing Indieworld (and if you haven’t, why not?), you already know that the greatest marketing and promotion tool for Indie authors is your network. That network includes both readers and other authors who not only support your book by buying and reviewing them but sharing news about your writing with their networks.
Toward that end, I belong to several writer’s groups and I’ve recommended a few of them in Marketing Indieworld. Today, I’d like to highlight the authors in one of those groups that is organized by my co-author, Carole P. Roman. Carole, with her contacts in New York and Hollywood, has organized the group to provide books for the swag bags handed out to celebrities at the Emmy’s and Oscars. An important feature for those included in the group is that they consistently support other authors through a variety of efforts, including engaging with them on social media, promoting their books through posts, attending launch parties, inviting other authors to contribute to promotional messaging, and reviewing.
Today, I’d like to share a little about the authors who are part of this group and I encourage anyone reading this post to select a few of their books to add to your own library. In the coming days, I’ll craft posts highlighting an individual author, with more details about them, their writing, and advice to starting writers.
MEMENTOS: A Unique Collection of Short Stories & Flash Fiction (Mementos Anthologies Book 1) by Theodore Jerome Cohen
In this volume, you’ll find a story inspired by a 1973 PBS television show in which a steam bath is presented as the afterlife; here, however, the afterlife is a bowling alley overseen by the shoe attendant. In another story, we read a Civil War soldier’s last letter home to his father, a letter filled with horrible descriptions of his imprisonment in Andersonville and his concern for the steamboat journey upon which he is about to embark. And not to leave you without something of the paranormal, there’s even a story about the deep South and the superstitions that abound in Cajun Country. In short (pun intended), there is something in this book for almost every genre and taste.

Little Miss HISTORY arrives at the North Pole in a sled pulled by four huskies. This adventure will show you much that you don’t know about the North Pole.
Lost in Amber by Esther Rabbit
“Lost in Amber takes girl power to a whole new level, exploring the lives of three extraordinary women: Zoey, Sam and Emma in their journey from breakup to “braveheart”. It was funny, hopeful and I adored the romance!”
The choices we make determine our futures and Lucy is torn between two paths. A romantic thriller mystery, dark and intriguing.
