Happy 4th of July! I hope you’ll be spending the day with family, maybe enjoying a fireworks display this evening. Hamburgers, hot dogs and fireworks are all very nice, but let’s not forget what we are celebrating. It was 241 years ago today that the United States was born by the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, declaring the Thirteen Colonies were a new nation and no longer a part of the British Empire. And didn’t that set off a firestorm! War was declared, and the United States fought long and hard for its independence.
So on this important day in our nation’s history, I hope you enjoy your time with family and friends.
What are your plans for this holiday?
Are you my biggest fan? Do you tell everyone about my books? Well, I’m forming a new street team for The Mortician’s Daughter, and I have a few more spaces open. What does a street team member do? They tell everyone they know about my books, leave reviews for my books on Amazon, Barnes & Noble & Goodreads, sign up for my newsletter and get your friends to sign up, too. How do you become a member of my street team? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and answer these questions:
- What type of genre is your favorite? Paranormal? Contemporary? Mystery? Anything else?
- How old are you and do you only read young adult books?
- Are you willing to leave reviews? Post about the book on social media? Go the extra mile to help get a buzz going about the book?
