I'm Dancing As Fast As I Can!

Ok, so here's the tiny bit I know since getting online for writing purposes, which isn't much. Many authors are using blogs, messageboards, chats, newsgroups, etc. to get themselves and their e-books known. Are these effective? Are they working out.

I've learned that it's important to get your book reviewed and that will draw more readers to you. So I put together a teeny tiny list of review sites I've learned about. Here it is:

Coffe Time Romance
The Romance Studio
The Romance Reader's Connection
Tara M. Leigh's Reviews

I know it's little, but I'm not at home where I have this stuff bookmarked, unfortunately. Anyway, my question is what else are you authors doing to get yourself out there? What canI do, a girl who's the shy little wall flower type who let's it out only in her books? :P Any tidbits you give to me will be shared with as many as I can share it with to pay it forward, so to speak.

Hope you'll drop by soon. Thanks, everyone.

    Actually there are a lot of review sites out there.

    TwoLips Reviews ( I reviewed for them before I figured I didn't have the time to commit fully to them)

    Pink Posse

    Bella Tyler Does reviews (she's listed on my blog)

    ME Ellis does reviews (listed also)

    It's early, those are the only ones I can think of! LOL

    With Love,
    Tara M.

    PS: I'm glad my review helped get your name out there!

    Thanks, Tara.
    I visited your blog yesterday and noticed you had added me to your sidebar. I was so touched and felt so special. I'm adding you right now. Thanks for being such a kind and giving person. I really like it that you give a personal touch by sending an email with advice and such.

    Thanks for the link AJ, it's helpful since I too am trying to get my name out there! Especially since my novella is soon to be published by Freya's...not soon enough! LOL

    With Love,
    Tara M.

    You should try to get involved with yahoo chat groups, too.

    I assume your publishers have them and really, there's a ton of romance ones out there.

    Also, a lot of the review sites have chats and those are fun - though personally I like the group ones better.
