Does the idea of promoting your book give you hives? Are you overwhelmed by all the book promotion opportunities available? You're not alone! With all the different social media sites available, not to mention all the available opportunities such as online FB, Twitter and other types of author chats, and then there's all the different groups you can post and promote on, it's not a wonder author's heads are reeling. Here's the thing, you can increase your book sales with just fifteen minutes a day. Just pick one promotional thing, and spend fifteen minutes doing it every day. That can be a short blog post that you then schedule on Hootsuite or Buffer to post to your social media sites, or creating a graphic with a quote from your book and your website addy and then posting it to social media. It doesn't have to be something huge. It takes about three months to see a change in sales, but this works. Book marketing doesn't have to be hard, and if you want to see even faster results consider adding in low cost services such as blog tours for example, and you can increase your book sales in a relatively short amount of time!

Coffee Time Recommended Reads

CTRR Award

Our Coffee Crew works hard every day reading and writing those great reviews because we love it. Out of all the books that the entire staff reads, occassionally one raises to the top of our Staffer's mind. A special book that is just so wonderful, we feel it deserves an extra acknowledgement. So once a month, our Coffee Crew awards a book with the CTRR Award and share it with you.

Not every member of our Coffee Crew will have a 'special' book they recommend, so when one of the books is selected, you know it is special! Stop by our blog to see which books were nominated and won this month...or in the past!

Congratulations to this month's winners:

Luminosity Publishing

Calling all authors, Luminosity Publishing is looking for submissions for their erotic anthology:

Men for Hire Anthology (MM / Ménage Special Publication)

Setting: Jennifer Archer runs a firm in London offering ‘men for hire’ to do any job from dog walking, house sitting, DIY, chauffeuring, etc…. (Not sexual, since we don’t want the main characters to appear as gigolos and prostitutes. HOWEVER, in the course of doing the job the main characters will be expected to have sexual relations!).

Story ideas: We are looking for unique and erotic situations in this anthology. The plot should be strong, even though it is short, the characters notable, the romance powerful, and the sex PASSIONATE!

M/M, and all-male ménage accepted.

Stories should be between 8,000-12,000 words. For heat levels see website. Stories should always have a HEA or HFN ending.

The submission deadline is 1 September 2015 for release in January 2015.

Submit the full story plus synopsis to:…
