Looking to add to my street team...

To help promote my books, I have a group of friends on Facebook that share my posts on social media and allow me to tag them in things to gain wider exposure.

My primary duty is to label the new books and items coming in for circulation, but I also work with patrons and I lead our library’s book club. In my off time, I’m writing or promoting my work or doing something author-related. My brain seems to be in constant book mode. And I’m okay with that. When I’m not working, writing or spending time with my family, I tend to be reading. My personal library is full of eclectic choices, ranging fr
