Some of you know we’re building a Suspense Street Team, focused on cross-promotion. The premise: since we’re all a little shy about touting our own work, we’ll be cheerleaders for other suspense authors whose novels we enjoy.
Though we’ve got about forty men and women signed up, others are still welcome. We’re calling the genre ‘suspense,’ but we’ll include thrillers and mystery writers, as well.
I know what we are doing isn’t a new concept, so I’d like to know about your experience with cross-promotion. Are you involved in a group with this focus? Have you heard about or can you predict pitfalls? We’ll nix self-promotion in general, but of course, we’ll want to share free dates, releases and contests-so that we can to support these milestones.
Surely we’ll encourage the Street Team to read each other's books and write reviews for those novels they enjoy. We’ll also Tweet, FB and jump on Pinterest as soon as we find smart ways to do so. Bottom line is, we won’t begin operating as a group until we’re pleased with our structure.
Generally, I think we have a good concept here, but we’d love your help in ensuring its efficacy. Any and all ideas are welcome! And if you want to join us, let me know at rolynnwriter @earthlink.net
