Marketing for Romance Writers - Coffee Time Romance

When I see things like this I like to share because marketing for romance writers can be hard at best, but there's an interesting link/thread over at Coffee Time Romance that discusses this in more detail.

From Coffee Time Romance, a web site that I've always liked and followed. And I don't follow that many.

The Marketing for Romance Writers motto is "Seek, teach, share, learn, succeed." MFRW is open to the literary community. We teach members marketing and publicity, and work together to provide opportunities. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and now Coffee Time Romance. We brainstorm ideas, get feedback, and find others for mutual promotion. We are associated with MFRW The group was founded in 2006 by author Kayelle Allen, and has a staff of over a dozen volunteers. All our training is free. Join us!

I would imagine this could help all authors in all genres, depending on how it's applied. And I'm sure everything they discuss is legit...unlike a lot of the fakery going on these days with marketing and promotion where there seems to be so much collusion.

I also like to remain true to romance, and I've always found that Coffee Time Romance does this well. I don't like it when newbies come along and say they want to change romance and put an end to HEA. If they feel that way they shouldn't be writing romance, or m/m romance. Just my opinion.

Check out the link above, if you are so inclined. As side note, a lot of people often get intimidated by Twitter because they aren't sure how it works. I use twitter like I use everything online. I figure out what it can do for me and that's how I look at it. With twitter it's all about news and getting information. I'm not there to chat, but I find it invaluable for other things.
