Authors Beware Social Media Scam Artists!

kfzuzulo:

A great post for anyone who has a book to promote…

Originally posted on I've Moved!:

social media scam artistsMy friend, Tina Gerow, posted this on Facebook the other day.  It brought up an important factor of author promotion: The Social Media Scam Artists.

FB just told me that my Cover Reveal photo for Sleeping With Shadows I reposted this morning on my Tina Gerow/Cassie Ryan page is doing better than 95% of my other posts on my author page and would I like to pay to Boost it.

Uh, let me see…NO. What I would LIKE you to do is to actually freaking show my posts to everyone who liked my page. I shouldn’t NEED to Boost it since when you register for FB it says it’s free and always will be. Lying ass bitches!! Oh, sorry- was that in my outdoor voice?

Just irritating.

Sigh…now after my FB rant about bugging us to boost our posts, now I’m getting spammed from people/groups offering to promote my stuff…

My YA story, starting on page 103 of the January issue of BTS Book Reviews.

WOVEN is my new YA short story that is published in the January issue of BTS Book Reviews magazine. When Maggie runs into her middle-school heart throb many years later, there’s just one question that concerns her: Does he remember me?

I think we all know that feeling. You want to believe that you’re unforgettable but, realistically, you also know that there is an army of your former classmates who you probably wouldn’t recognize if you had an open yearbook and a DNA kit. What are the chances that the kid you liked, liked you back? And what if you discover that, despite time and complications, a crush could morph into true love. Maggie has that chance. But she also has one of those major complications. The most major type of major…  Read Woven on page 103 of BTS Book Reviews magazine to find out if the threads of our lives can actually form a nice, cozy blanket for us when life is at its coldest.

I hope you enjoy the story and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,

Romance Readers!

I LOVE authors, and a universal trait we share is how very much we love to share our stories, our special gifts, with our readers.

When I discovered Boroughs Publishing Group put together five special gift anthologies I sat down and asked the authors where their hearts were when they wrote their stories.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes compilation from the authors to my question:

Tell us what you loved most about writing your story in the anthologies.

A holiday bonanza: Ten stories set in different times and places, each telling the tale of people who found love through wishes or magic or luck, all on Christmas—except for one on New Year’s Eve.

The qualities, valuable secrets and benefits of rose water were discovered through an ancient romantic story that relates as follows.

Hi, everyone! I hope you’re having a delightful December. I’m pleased to announce that my short story, The Christmas Bottle, has been included in two anthologies for the holiday season from Boroughs Publishing Group. The Gift of Magic is a four-story compilation of romantic tales. Mine, of course, includes a genie. The genie’s name is Shai and he is Lola Baz Lopez’s only chance for  happy holidays and, more importantly, for love. But it will mean extricating herself from a dark and damaged marriage.

The story also appears in a 10-tale compilation at All Romance eBooks called A Boroughs Christmas. Check out that cover. Who doesn’t love a cute kitty? Actually, I think little Meow Mix there is too shy to see how well Lola and her genie are getting along. ;)

Best Wishes,

Kellyann Zuzulo
