Tamara 's writing experience with LOVE, CHRISTMAS - MOVIES YOU LOVE

1. What is your main objective in bundling your works with other authors?

The authors in this boxset were aiming for the USA Today Bestseller List (which we made!) It’s the next step for targeting better promotions, backing increases in pricing and gaining exposure for all of my books.

The more authors you work with, the more exposure you have to a new audience. Many of the ladies in the Authors’ Billboard group have also published with Kensington, Avon and Harlequin, despite also being indie authors. We have some very inspiring New York Times and USA Today Bestselling authors in our group.

I like working with others, and I am a good promoter, so it’s hard for me to say no when I get invited.

2. What blogging, newsletter and social media promotions have you done to promote the LOVE, CHRISTMAS collection?

Too many to write down!! Twitter, Facebook and others including paid promos. NUMEROUS because it is a lot of work when you are trying to make a list. This is not my first time, but it requires everyone working together, which can sometimes be difficult.

3. Most authors require a large time commitment just in writing and editing a new book. Was this your first book set, a new book was required with a deadline?

No it wasn’t. Every story I’ve written during the last few years has had a deadline because they have all been in boxsets before I’ve released them independently. I can’t say what a relief it is to have turned in my last story this year. I’ve been writing non-stop for almost two years now. My next deadline isn’t until April of 2019. I needed some time to regroup and get a few things done around my house.

4. When will you publish your writings outside the LOVE, CHRISTMAS collection? I am not sure yet, but probably in December or next year in November. Even though these series books have each become bestsellers for me I have several other stories in box sets which I haven’t released yet, going back through the past Christmas.

I could just upload all of them right now. But I like to promote and set up reviews before they’re released. I write fast, but everything I write I treat with importance. With the time I spend writing each particular story, they all become very important to me!
