#Dancing for #Book Votes!

Sharing is caring!  That’s why I shared my books with my dance friends.

In an effort to expand my social network reach, I created this video and posted it on all my social media sites with various overlapping book and dance hashtags.

My book, The Curse of the Winklevoss Twins, is “Hot & Trending” on Kindle Scout right now and for the past week.  I’m hoping to keep that momentum going!  22 more days!

Modern Day Books Need Add Ons

As I prepare to launch my next book series, I keep thinking about additional ways to enjoy the story. How many times have you read the details by J.K. Rowling about characters she didn’t mention at the end of the series? Or get excited because they brought the characters of Vampire Diaries to life in a tv series? Or sing along to a song from the Hunger Games movie on the radio?

Like a bag of Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans or your very own Mocking Jay pin, I hope you enjoy Jules’s Vita Post Mortem Academy Class schedule!

#UptownFunk and the #Twittersphere for #Writers

Imagine, sitting at your desk, listening to your ear buds, and formatting an excel spreadsheet when Bruno Mars’s Uptown Funk pops up on your Spotify. Do you fight the urge to dance?

This week’s jazz funk routine at my local dance studio is choreographed to Uptown Funk, and I can’t stop grooving.
In addition to Bruno Mars’s inspiring talent, I am also moved by the actions of my teacher, who’s niece passed away a few months ago.  A passionate singer and songwriter, her niece left behind stacks of her CDs.  My dance teacher has decided to sell the CDs for $12 each and donate all the profits to two of her favorite charities.

BOOK MARKETING EFFORTS
I have reignited my fervor on twitter, attempting to be critical and thoughtful with the information I tweet.  My goal is to tweet or retweet five interesting posts a day.
