Don't Rock Fear Blog Tour with LaShaunda Hoffman #Marketing #Author #Blogtour @wnlbooktours



DAY 1

Welcome to the first day of the Don’t ROCK Fear Blog Tour.
I would like to thank Paulette for letting me share with you today.
When I published my first book, my fear issues came to surface.  They tried to stop me from promoting. Since I’ve been dealing with fear for a long time, I put into practice what I’d taught myself on how to handle fear.
First I wrote down my fears.
In the 7 day promotion challenge I’m hosting in April, I will share the other tips I use to deal with my fears.  In the last challenge I hosted in January I asked the attendees to list their promotion fears.  During this blog tour I will share a few of their fears and hope they will help you if you are dealing with your own promotion fears.

Today’s Promotion Fear – I Don’t Know What To Promote
When I have virtual tea sessions with my clients, (virtual tea sessions are promotion strategies sessions I have with authors and business owners who need help with their online promotion.) this fear comes up a lot, mainly because most of my clients are winging it when it comes to their promotion.  They haven’t created a plan for their promotion, so they don’t really know what to promote, where to promote or when to promote.
My first rule of advice is to create a promotion plan for your promotion.
You always want to know where you are going with your promotion and what you are doing with your promotion.  This will help you determine what to promote about, if you are promoting enough or need to take it up a notch.

Your plan should include:
Promotion Goals
Promotion Budget
Promotion Schedule

If you would like more information about a promotion plan I recommend you check out my video series.  http://bit.ly/PPBUNDLE

It takes you step by step in creating a promotion plan.
Now you don’t have to ROCK this fear anymore.  When you have a plan for your promotion, you know where you stand with your promotion and you will never have to worry about what to promote.
I would like to invite you to register for the Don’t ROCK Fear – Promotion Mindset 7 Day challenge and kick fear in the butt.

This challenge is for writers, business owners and anyone who is dealing with fear.  Don’t let fear ROCK You.

You are also welcome to join the See Ya On The Promotion Training Group, where we teach you how to be a social butterfly.

About The Author

Elizabeth Golibart Honaker hails from Sparta, Tennessee, where she teaches writing support and English at Motlow Community College. Her undergraduate degree is in Liberal Arts, and her first MA is in Theology. This has given her the breadth and scope to write over fifteen full-length passion plays in the last twenty years – seven of which are in print with others being prepared for publication – as well as dozens of shorter scripts, short stories, and poems on Christian topics. Her first historical fiction novel, Come Before Winter, was published in 2014. In that same year, she completed her second MA in English and Creative Writing (Fiction) at Southern New Hampshire University.
When she is not writing or tutoring, she spends her time devising new home projects for Allen, her husband of 45 years. She also enjoys communicating with her two wonderful grown children and buying (and making) trinkets for her four lively grandchildren. She is passionate about sharing Christ, missional activities, and her local church. She also loves gardening, sewing, piano playing, and Star Trek as time permits.



About The Book

This novel skillfully mixes historical people and events from the first century A.D. with fictional characters to create a riveting narrative. What was it like to be confronted by common people from the Roman Empire who believed in an uncommon Savior? Tribune Justinius Plaxus Glatonis, a powerful member of the Imperial Guard in Rome, finds out.












It was sundown when Justinius, Tribune of the Roman Imperial Guard, entered his cubicle and wearily removed his plumed helmet. After placing it in its proper place in the crudely-crafted cupboard near his cot, the warrior stretched and flexed his arms. In the name of Mithras, he thought, am I getting old? My muscles never ached as badly as they do today. He withdrew his broad sword from its scabbard and placed it next to his pilum – the expertly-crafted Roman spear. His shield had shifted slightly on its peg, and he adjusted it to its proper position. Septimus, his tesserarius,1 had already lit his oil lamps, and a welcome cup of wine was placed on the table. Justinius stood to drink it; he awaited Septimus’ help to remove his breastplate and underlying tunic and could not relax until that was accomplished. However, as a good soldier, he was patient – he knew that Septimus would not keep his commander waiting without cause. He drank the cup slowly, savoring the r ich fullness of the wine produced but a few stadia from the gates of Rome. Wine of such quality is not to be found anywhere else in the empire, he mused. I am fortunate to be stationed in Rome herself, the Queen of Cities.

Roman aide-de-camp

Septimus entered and saluted Justinius. His commander nodded, returned the empty cup to the table, and raised his arms so that his aide could more easily access the straps and belts that attached one piece of the breastplate to another. As his aide removed the back piece, Justinius momentarily held the front piece so it would not fall to the ground. It was a heavy, durable section of armor, but the tribune did not want it scratched up unduly. As a good warrior always did, he took care of his own kit himself, polishing it daily. Each piece stood proudly in its assigned place. As Justinius’ aide, Septimus’ job was to assist his commander only in necessary tasks. He was not a servant; he was subordinate only to Justinius. However, there was a certain affection reflected in Septimus’ actions. Indeed, he went beyond the normal scope of a soldier assigned to assist an officer. It was not so much in the big things that he sought to aid his superior; he tried to notice the little things that could smooth the way for such an admirable leader as the tribune he served. His eyes fell on the tattered brown cloak with the curious stripes that draped itself over a partially-concealed scroll. He reached for it to tidy its appearance, but Justinius spoke to him with uncharacteristic sharpness: “Don’t touch that!” “Sir, I only meant…” “I will handle it myself. Do not touch it.” “Yes, Tribune.” “That will be all.” Justinius stood still until Septimus had left the room. Why did I speak to him in that manner? He asked himself. Now I have raised suspicion…What a foolish thought! Who cares whether a moth-eaten cloak and an ill-penned scroll sit in my quarters? Still… Justinius glanced once more toward the door; it had been securely latched by his aide, so he felt more secure. He stood before the cupboard, struggling with himself whether to touch the cloak and the scroll once more or no. What have I to fear from such objects – the cloak of a fanatic and the scroll of a deluded fool? Justinius sank down onto his cot. The apparatus was wellworn and had seen over fifty campaigns – like its owner – but it was sturdy and serviceable, like everything else in Justinius’ cubicle. There were plenty of other things to claim the soldier’s attention; the weekly slabs with their figures and lines and reports had to be read and digested, and more reports had to be made to superiors up the line. There was his armor to polish once again. But Justinius could not concentrate on anything but the two maddeningly distractive articles. He stood and went to the cupboard. This fear is insane. He reached out to pull the cloak from its resting place, and as he drew it closer to his body, he smelled its lingering aroma of travel and sweat and contact with horses and camels and ships. It was somehow reassuring to smell that smell again.

#FRIDAYFOLLOW #BEHINDTHESCENES #NEWBOOKALERT #FICTION ~~ Butterflies in a Mason jar by Sabrina Scales


Welcome to Behind The Scenes

Today's featured author is 

Sabrina E L B Scales







Butterflies in a Mason Jar

Excerpt

Hi, I'm Sydney, respectfully known as 'The Curly Headed Cupid' thanks to my inherited ability to connect drifting souls to their soulmates. It seemed like a far reach at first, but with the love and support of my family and very best friend, and the bleeding hearts of quite a few strangers, I've built an empire guiding people to the one thing they can't live without–love. Granted, it's an amazing gift to possess, it's ten times harder than it looks on the surface, and one hundred times as challenging when it comes to finding my own forever love.

Given the basis of my profession, it would appear to be as simple as matching the guy who loves sports with the girl who played ball in college. But contrary to popular belief, there is more to finding your soulmate than having extra-curricular activities and favorite music genres in common. There's a magical element involved when finding your match, one that can't be checked off on a list or discovered through mere appearances. There's a feeling, one comparable to static electricity, that must be present in order to validate the connection. And if it's not there, there's nothing either of you can do to create it. But if it is there, even in the presence of the person you least desire to share it with, there's nothing you can do to make it go away.

Most people settle for something close to that magic, but in the end, at the very center of your soul, it will never be enough. I've experienced that "something close", and I've also experienced the "magic". And there was something about the "magic" that overrode every rule I'd ever set in place… with Dashmarion.

Wassup? I'm Dash, known by many as the arrogant TV lawyer who despises love in every form. And I'd agree with most of that. It's basically my job as a divorce attorney to be the devil's advocate while couples sever a promise they made to God and whoever else stood witness, to stay together forever no matter what. But that's not realistic. Sometimes things get rough–irreconcilable if you wanna use legal jargon. And when it does, I'm there to neatly arrange the division.

For a long time, after watching the ending of so many unions, I was convinced that romantic relationships were nothing more than the beginning of the end, and it wasn't until someone called me on my sinister demeanor that I looked in the mirror and realized who I'd become. Spite was my initial reaction to being shunned all over social media by a woman who flaunted love around like a trophy, and used me as an example of what love was not. But quickly, and through an experience that could only be described as magical, I came to realize that I might have been going about this "love" thing all wrong. Stranger things have happened, but never to me… until Sydney.

About The Author

Sabrina E L B Scales is a vibrant author of real, humorous, heartfelt love stories. Born into what most would consider a less than desirable environment, this small town girl from southeast Texas was gifted with a unique outlook on love and life in general. It wasn't always peaches and cream growing up between the BRICKS that she called home. Being the 7th of seven children, the closest in age being almost ten years her senior, Sabrina was often left with lots of time to herself, improvising scripts for her Barbie Dolls to play out in the tiny theater that was her bedroom. With time, and the self-prescribed treatment of a debilitating disease known as procrastination, the vivid imagination she used to escape boredom and the struggle, was finally transformed into actual characters in the pages of her books, who will blossom and grow right before your reading eyes!
