I’m not just an author, I’m a marketer too. I have a degree in PR/Marketing, and I still struggle trying to find the right marketing to entice readers to buy my books. Particularly for readers who are unfamiliar with my name. Even though I’ve been published for almost fifteen years, readers still stumble onto me pretty much by accident. Marketers say a cover’s critical to readers for first look. Then it’s the blurb. Then the reviews, and then awards. I’ve got all of that, so that leaves me with the remaining question, what I want to know is what would make you pick up a book that is outside of the genre you normally read? For instance, I’d love to know what would entice you into trying out a historical, in particular, Pleasure Me. It’s an older woman, younger man story, and I love these two so much. Ruth and Garrick are wonderful together. They’ve both been hurt in the past, and they comfort each other in the present. But because it’s a historical it hasn’t found it’s big audience yet. If you don’t read historicals, why not? Is it that you think it’s a history lesson? Do you think they might not be relatable in terms of how heroes and heroines deal with each other? Tell me why you don’t read historicals.
