All right, moving on then. Let's talk promotion!Specifically, cross promotion.
I have a question for all you readers and authors out there. If there's an author that you love, and have come to expect a certain type of book from, would you want to be notified if they suddenly branched out into a new genre? Say, a military romantic suspense author that suddenly comes out with some erotic romances under a different name? *flutters lashes innocently*
Hey, just sayin'.
I'm trying to figure out how much cross promotion I need to do (or want to do, for that matter) between myself and my...other self. (Writers are totally allowed to have multiple personalities, by the way. No need for anti-psychotic meds.) I know other authors have managed this successfully, but I wanted to get a show of hands here on Writers Gone Wild. Especially in light of the Judy Mays saga, the bias heaped upon erotic romance authors really hit home for me. I've already warned my kids that a career in politics is out for them both :)
Authors: What cross promo does an author need to do for different pen names?
Readers: What would you like to see in terms of promo for an author with various pen names? What do you want to see on their websites? Do you prefer they keep them totally separate?
Really guys, inquiring minds want to know. Tell me what you think!
