When you start a new venture – or in my case, formalise a venture – you find yourself having to do all the admin of setting yourself up. Gone are the days when it was a simple case of setting up a website or simply printing some business cards. These days, the bare minimum is Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and a blog. If your industry involves publishing, you also need Goodreads and let me tell you… setting it all up isn’t a quick exercise 🙂
There are a number of services that we will be offering, including blog tours, video promo clips, audio reviews and guest bloggers to fill space on your blog. This blog will also allow us to talk to you about tips and tricks in writing and marketing and provide a platform where we can promote not only our own tours, but also new writers, books that we’ve loved and more.
Our reading tastes are wide and so we’ll be sharing all of that with you. In the meantime, we’ve set up our YouTube channel, Goodreads profile (which still needs to be populated properly), a Twitter account (and we’ve started to follow all our favourites), a Facebook page to make communicating as simple as possible and now we’re breaking in this blog 🙂 It’s been a busy day!
We’ve been organising blog tours for the past few years and recently branched out into providing short promotion videos for authors to use and we will also be doing YouTube reviews that can be shared on author blogs and websites. It’s an exciting time and with all the changes, the time had come to formalise our freelance activities and so… The Book Mistress was born. It’s a lovely play on words as I’m a mistress to my book obsession and I’m also the mistress of the books…
The great news is that we have managed to get the delightful Domino and Dominic Lane to join our blogging team and I look forward to having them share their great advice and experiences with you all.
Until then… have a spectacular day!
