Coffee Time Romance Author Excerpt Day
Coffee Time Romance is dedicating the 20th of every month to author excerpts. Whether a new release, an upcoming release, or an oldie but goodie, this is an opportunity to excite your fans. The rules are easy. Excerpt Day is for published works only. This is not a day for contests. Each author is limited to one excerpt. You can include a blurb, bio, and cover, but the entire post can be no more than 750 words. If you’re already registered with the CTR blog, you’re good to go. If not, drop Bonnie a line and she’ll get you going. Happy Excerpt Day!
