Expanding Book Promotion & Writing Services Beyond Fang-tastic Books

I've been toying with an idea for awhile now- it's about expanding my book promotion services beyond Fang-tastic Books.

With Fang-tastic Books I offer authors one site to promote on.

In 2011 I am expanding.

I am starting an online book promotion service that will set up virtual book tours for paranormal and erotica authors (or anyone else who wants to set up a tour but my specialty areas are paranormal and erotica).

It is still in the planning phases right now- but I'm getting set up as a legal business with a DBA and all that and I am researching sites to approach that may want to be part of the book tours and authors who may be interested in my services.

In addition to scheduling online book tours for authors I will be expanding my freelance writing services as well by offering critique services for paranormal, urban fantasy and erotica authors.

The critique services idea came about because when I needed a critique all of the services I cam across specifically said "NO EROTICA".

Well, erotica is what I write (mainly paranormal erotica but some contemporaries too)

I have worked as an erotica author for over five years now, I am multi-published, and have won awards. I have also worked as an editor for an erotica website and a print publisher that published both erotica and non-erotica books.

As far as paranormal and urban fantasy...well obviously that's what I read and the genres I have been reading since I was a child. Before they were even labeled as paranormal romance or urban fantasy.

I hope to officially kick off Bewitching Writing Services and Book Promotion and Bewitching Book Tours in January.

Currently I am looking for authors who would be interested in my critique services. I plan to offer very competitive rates. If you are interesting in receiving a critique on your manuscript email me at roxannerhoads @ aol. com

I am also looking for authors who would be interested in scheduling online book tours.

And on that note I'm looking for blogs that are interested in being stops for paranormal, urban fantasy and/or erotica tours. If you would like to become a book tour host please fill out this form.

If you are an author interested in setting up a book tour I am offering a great $99 intro right now- the Budget Book Tour.

I currently have a short survey up about authors and book tours. It's short, just 10 questions. If you could take it I'd very much appreciate it. Click here to take survey

Last but not least I am looking for web/blog designers to give me bids for creating a custom blog design, header, and buttons for and

The vision I have is a purple/blue background with a very paranormal/witchy/magical feel to it. But web design is not my thing and the woman who did my awesome Fang-tastic Books design is no longer doing web work .

So if anyone is interested in book tours, critique services or designing my sites please contact me.

Congratulations, Roxanne! I think there really is a need for someone to do paranormal/UF book tours. Publishers often don't target the best genre sites and it's really difficult to schedule a tour by one's self. (I tried and botched up scheduling.)

Wishing you all the best in your new venture -- and you know to contact me as a stop for authors!

You go, Roxanne. Best of luck with the launch of your expanded services. I'll be back in touch.

Thanks Marta and Susan I am hoping it turns out to be a good business venture and yes Marta I will be in touch for setting up tour spots.

I already booked Alayna Williams for her second book release in March.

I am so excited to expand my services.
