#SundayBlogShare Authors Bloggers Rainbow Support Club #ABRSC

 

The Authors Bloggers Rainbow Support Club #ABRSC has gone from strength to strength. I founded this Facebook group on 26th of February 2017 nearly six months ago, (goodness how time flies.)

This is the first post: https://mjmallon.com/2017/02/26/authorsbloggers-rainbow-support-club/

Just recently I was astonished to discover that we have over 150 members!!!

We have an amazing team of bloggers who add content everyday and I’d just like to thank them for being so active on the page.

Here are some of the wonderful,  informative links that have been shared of late…

Some informative information via Belinda Miller https://belindamiller.me/I spend a lot of time on marketing my children’s books. One thing I do is produce videos. Since I have worked with some fabulous illustrators, I have blessed with an abundance of illustrations. Two of my favorite apps are: Animoto and Ripl. Check them out. There’s another app, Lumyer, that can be used to enhance, add elements to cover art. I use that, too. Hope this gives you some great ideas! PSA — very addictive.

Via fellow Administrator of the club, Colleen Chesebro  who suggested some design service alternatives which are similiar to Canva: https://crello.com/home/

Via fellow Administrator – Debby Gies – D G Kaye Writer

Via Richard Ankers – Articles and tips for writers – http://www.liternauts.com/articles-for-writers/

Also, I have linked our group to three other Facebook groups which I’d recommend joining too:

To give you an indication of the benefits of joining The Author Helper. Here is one example. Recently, I enquired about  international sales and setting up international author pages.  I had help from:

Ben Zackheim who suggested – Fiberead which translates and distributes internationally.   https://fiberead.com/auth/login

Debby Gies suggested this useful link: Setting up your international author pages by William Cook

Drue Hoffman said that –  France, Japan & Germany also have Author Central pages and put up a graphic which suggested that the UK and the UK are the biggies in the e-book market. 

Please support the following upcoming activities mentioned on #ABRSC if you can:

Charli Mills at her welcoming Carrot ranch are having a right all blogging knees up in October – Carrot Ranch New Barns Raised At The Ranch

Colleen Chesebro  is having an October Spectacular  with Author Guest Posts. This sounds such fun, I love halloween! So keep an eye out for that. Colleen shared this link too:  https://buildbookbuzz.com/quirky-october-holidays-offer-book-promotion-possibilities/

Some of my recent finds:

Recently, I had the good fortune to be a guest on the #LisaBurtonShow. My interview: Lisa Interviews My Character Esme

I was curious about the poster art that Craig used. Here’s a link to the fabulous artist on Deviant Art:  https://artbrosean.deviantart.com/art/Lisa-Walks-like-an-Egyptian-705536763

And I can’t remember whether I found this via rainbow or not but it might come in useful to someone…. if you want to enter at some point… https://www.tckpublishing.com/2017-readers-choice-awards/

Also there was a recent discussion kicked off by Colleen Chesebro about collaborations, which I am a big fan of.  This became an on-line brainstorming session!!! Many #ABRSC got involved in this particular topic and we hope to have a Xmas collaborative event with this in mind. So stay tuned!

Before I go I’d love to share this lovely human interest story from Ritu, which is bound to put a smile on your face: https://butismileanyway.com/2017/09/14/i-love-our-oldies/

There are so many lovely bloggers and authors who participate in #ABRSC. Sadly, I haven’t mentioned them all due to time constraints but please take this as a huge thank you to each and every one of you for helping make #ABRSC such a fun, engaging place to share ideas, and help each other.

If you’d like to join the #ABRSC please do. Comment below. Let me know if you have any questions about the club, add your links to posts of interest, chat, come say hello.

Bye for now,

  1. Hi Marjorie,
    I am a member of the Facebook group. I see notifications coming in all the time but didn’t know all this information. I knew Debby was involved but had no idea you started the group. From the look of the notifications I see pouring in, you sure are going strong. Off to share.
