Marlene Urso’s first published novel hit the bookseller sites as an eBook. Under her nom de plume of Paisley Kirkpatrick, she released “Night Angel,” set in a fictional town patterned on her home of Placerville, California. The Desert Breeze publication is an eBook only release and as such, presents its own challenges.
So how does a new author market a book that she can’t display in
stacks on tables? Urso uses a number of strategies. First, she networks
like crazy. She is a member of several writing groups, including the
Sacramento Valley Rose chapter of Romance Writers of America, From the
Heart, Celtic Hearts and Hearts Through History. She has received
mention on many of the blogs and websites of her fellow members. Some of
those appearances include Cynthia Woolf’s blog, Fierce Romance blog, Sweet ‘N Sexy blog and Reviews and Opinions.
