Twitter hashtag: #W4WS
Find us on Facebook
An initiative to promote writers and their books (that’s you)!
• Help writers bring awareness of their book(s) to tens of thousands of new people
• Help writers reach Amazon Top 100 in at least one category (i.e., suspense, free, etc.)
• Increase sales of their book(s) after the promo is over
• Drive new traffic to their blog and increase following
• Create verbal and viral buzz.
W4W's is held the third Monday each month!
How it Works: The spotlighted author will choose a social media avenue, such as Twitter or Facebook (or both). Then, the good people of Blogdom will promote the author’s book to their Twitter followers or Facebook friends, that is, incredibly large new audiences the author could not reach on their own.
Facebook: The writer posts an image of their book along with a short blurb and a link to Kindle on their blog. Visitors simply click the Facebook page, then share the link with their FB friends. https://www.facebook.com/Writers4Writers
Twitter: The author posts pre-written Tweets on his/her blog. At your convenience, simply copy and paste Tweets into Twitter. Or go to #W4WS on Twitter and Retweet.

Unfortunately and sadly, Nick has had to postpone his spot for W4W's this month, due to the loss of his precious son, Andrew who passed away in his sleep.
Anyone who knows Nick, will respect his loss and will know that it will be hitting him hard.
Kyra Lennon, Nick's critique partner as sent the email below and has set up a way we, Nick's blogging friends can help his family at this very sad time.
Please read below for the details.
guys, I've been talking with Mary Pax and Clare Dugmore about what we
can do for Nick and his family - and since I am in the UK like Nick, we
decided it would be a good if I co-ordinate.
it's early days, and we're not sure what Nick's family need right now
(not that there's anything that can REALLY help), we'd like to ask if
any of you would like to club together and donate some money to send
them some flowers to let them know we're thinking of them, and any
remaining money can be donated to a charity of their choice.
I can collect money through Paypal - just because that's the easiest way for it to be collected and sent on.
open to any other ideas, but we thought a charity donation might be the
best way to go. Any donations are welcome - if you can only afford
£1/$1, we'll take it, and if you can't afford anything, don't feel bad.
What we're doing here is trying to let Nick and his family know that -
as a group - us writers are there for him.
My Paypal email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will keep you updated on the progress!
Our thoughts are with you during this sad time, Nick.
