So you have been through the writing process, where you have wrote that perfect novel, and rewrote it again and again until it’s perfect. Then you found either a Publisher or Agent to represent you. Your book has been through the editing stage, cover art finalized, and a Published Date assigned, now what? Is the job done? Have you did all you needed to do to make this book a success? Nope, you have only begun. Now you have to market that book, get it into book stores, let people know it is available.

First off you need to find out from your Publisher or Agent where you book will be available at, who is doing reviews and any promoting they plan on doing. Once you have the answers to these questions you now know where to start.

A review is the first step to getting your book known. You can begin requesting reviews as soon as the Publisher has a final proof copy available.

Sandee, A reviewer, February 13, 2006, 5 out of 5 stars
Rising New Star!
Immortal Emerald La Roe has been alive for 300 years. She is currently operating her own paranormal agency under an alias with the help of her dear friend Katherine. Emerald knows she has been cursed and once a year loses her powers. Emerald’s life soon turns upside down when Katherine is murdered and the dreams of a goddess named Morrigan begin. Her lover, Maxwell Howard, a werewolf, is also under the same curse as Emerald after a blood sharing experience. When Emerald’s dead husband Stefan O’Duff reappears as a cursed immortal after so many years, Emerald swears revenge on the man who long ago abandoned her and cursed her to the fate she now endures. Stefan now offers a possible solution that may end their terrible curse, but it involves an intimacy with the man Emerald has sworn to kill. La Roe’s is an absorbing, well crafted first novel for Dee Owen’s. Ms. Owen’s takes her reader into the lives, past and current, of her many unique characters who readers will come to care for. La Roe’s, told in first person from Emerald’s point of view that gives the story a more intimate feel, and offers not only a magical story but a lovely romance element as well.
