Romance Lives Forever 

Thank you for a great 2014! The Romance Lives Forever blog grew, and some wonderful features were added. For the year, there were 363 posts.

Social Media

The link between the blog and Paper.li helped get out the word about blog posts. The paper is an online daily ezine, and this one posts to Twitter. The blog uses the hashtag #RLFblog, and you can click on Twubs to check its reach.

Triberr did a great job of sharing the news as well. Because of my followers, the tribemates I associate with, and their followers, RLF has a reach of over one million. The program works because it brings new readers, and reminds current ones of new material. It provides an average of 45 – 50 mentions on Twitter every day, and since each post has the guest author’s Twitter handle in the title, that means the guest gets mentioned too.

Networked Blogs helped by posting automatically to Facebook. The blog goes to several pages, and is often shared. Did you know the blog has its own Facebook page? Come over and like the page, and then share the day’s post, especially if you’re one of the guests.

New Interviews

Click below to download one of our optional interviews. These
are in rtf format, readable by any word processor. All are updated for 2015, and
include a book cover, blurb, buy links, and social media contacts for the author.
The purpose for these posts is to make readers aware of your book, and to help you
make sales. You’ll find full instructions inside each document.

Five easy questions includes a mini-interview with 9 questions,
from which authors choose a maximum of 5. Very fast and easy to do.
A book release includes a brief questionnaire about the reason
for writing the book, favorite genres, etc., and then segues into an introduction
for the story.
A Character Interview includes questions to answer as the character,
and questions for you to answer about yourself.
A Character Sketch includes information about the creation of
the character, such as background details and descriptions, and concludes with a
few questions for the character to answer about you.
The Bucket List is a quick list of questions for your character
to answer about favorite things, and asks for a personal wish list of things to
do.
Cover
Love

Cover Love is the most basic of all the posts. It includes only
a cover, blurb, buy links, and author social media. It’s also used as fill ins for
unscheduled days. Feel free to send in your previous books to be used as space permits.
Please use a new form for each book, and rename the form for the book.

RLF Top Blogger Award

RLF Gems 

This popular feature happens on the first of each month. I post a listing of the top bloggers, and send the top five a graphic to post on their websites or blogs. It’s almost always the most visited page of the month, although I don’t count it when listing which posts are the most popular. I want the credit to go to my wonderful guests. The top blogger each month gets a month of free ad space on the blog. The top blogger for the year gets a full year of ad space. The winner for December, and for 2014 will be announced Jan 1, 2015.

Thank you…

The blog has grown and changed in response to your requests, and I hope you’ve found it helpful. If there is something you’d like me to add or change, please let me know.
Thank you for your support. It’s been a pleasure getting to know you, and I hope to see you back soon.
