I wish I could say I was going to make sure and blog more often. I can't promise that, though. I do a lot of guest posts on other blogs and I'm in the middle of writing a new saga. Those things take priority.
Facebook has made it difficult for people who "like" a fanpage to even see the notifications sent from those pages liked. Unless you manually go to each page you like, your chances of seeing announcements are minimal.
The notification button you can select on Amazon to be informed when an author released doesn't work 99 percent of the time. You may have used this button, thinking you would get a notice on several of your favorite authors, but guess what? It's doubtful. Who knows when this will be fixed? It's been months.
Therefore, the only way to ensure that you will know when a favorite author has a new book out is to sign up for their new release email. Some do newsletters. I don't. I ONLY send a notice to the email you provide when I have a new release. I assume you're as busy as me and don't need chatty newsletter crowding your inbox! I DO NOT SPAM OR SHARE the email address either.
If you want to know when my new books come out, please sign up: http://eepurl.com/rfjaX
A new book from me will be released in the next month or so! Get signed up for the email today and you won't be in the dark when it comes out.
