Hi Deborah, I just looked at OffTheBookShelf and I notice that the Default Shipping Address only has Canada and USA as an option. Is this service not available outside North America?

Hi Everyone, I wanted to introduce myself to this group for a couple of reasons. First, I'm the founder of Bublish, a free book promotion platform for writers. We've built a powerful author branding tool for authors called the book bubble. We've helped thousands of authors around the world to get the word out about their books. I hope you'll visit and sign up for your free author account. I'm also the founding partner of PubSmart, a new kind of publishing conference that puts authors in driver's seat. This is a conference for authors who want to learn the business side of publishing. We're bringing top publishing talent from around the world to Charleston, South Carolin on April 16 - 18, including keynote speakers Jane Friedman (former publisher of Writer's Digest) and bestselling hybrid author Hugh Howey. You can learn more about the conference and register (tickets are limited) at Let me know if you have any questions about Bublish or PubSmart. Happy to answer.

I have some news I'm really excited about and I wanted to share it with you. Desperate Deeds, the third novel in my Malone mystery series, will be released on March 30th!

A little fun promotional stuff: I just ordered a book bag with the cover of one of my novels on it, which I'm planning to take to writers' and fan conferences as a conversation piece. There's a site that you can order custom book bags, coffee mugs, bookmarks and business cards, etc., which gives you something you can use as giveaways or handouts, etc. without costing you an arm and a leg for graphic design. Check out if you're interested.

Can anyone recommend someone who is really good at organizing blog tours? I have a client who would like to do a blog tour. As an editor, I do not engage in marketing as marketing is not my field of expertise. I would like to help my client locate someone who has an excellent track record in organizing blog tours. Her book is non-fiction and deals with the topic of mental health and resilience. Any suggestions?

I don't do electronic readers but I read pdf files and would like to exchange a review for a review of Murder in the Rockies, a historical mystery set in Denver 1890. Not sure how reviews work because this is my first novel. I will do what it takes to get your project noticed.

Hello, My name is Cindi and I am a whimsical nana which means I believe childhood is short....we are adults the majority of our lives. My book "Nonsense and No Sense and Somewhere in Between" reflects that! Please visit me at and visit the blog of a whimsical nana!

I need to connect with some book reviewers for my newest book, The Feast: A Parable of the Ring.

If you've already read the first book in the series, Conquering Your Goliaths: A Parable of the Five Stones, even better.

Just out on  Al dente: a Murder in Boston.  My new book is a murder mystery that pulls the reader into the story and lets him/her choose from two possible endings!
