Greetings! Are you the author of a self-published historical novel? Or are you published with a small company? Are you NOT Philippa Gregory, and therefore have to do your own book promotions?
I recently found a discussion topic in the science fiction forum devoted to self-published authors -- a place for commiseration and sharing of ideas -- and decided to see if I could start one in this genre.
My name is Dianne K. Salerni, and I have recently published a novel for young adults and (ahem) not-so-young adults about the Fox Sisters. Maggie and Kate Fox were two teenagers who accidentally founded the Spiritualist Movement in the 1850's when they claimed to be spirit mediums with the ability to contact the dead. My novel follows the story of Maggie Fox's life as she first learns to make a living as a fraud, then becomes a national celebrity, and finally falls in love with a man who tries to extricate her from a life of deception.
I am published with iUniverse. My book is High Spirits: A Tale of Ghostly Rapping and Romance. It is listed here with Amazon and also with B&N. I have a website: www.highspiritsbook.com.
Are there any other authors out there interested in commiserating about the challenge of taking the non-traditional route, sharing ideas and thoughts on the Publish-On-Demand field, or possibly exchanging links on websites for mutual promotion? It's a big, bad world out there with a lot of books in it, and we can use all the friends we can get!
