Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
Although I have an early model "nook," I find it easiest to read ebooks on my phone, through the Barnes & Noble or Kindle apps. That way, no matter where I am, I can whip out my phone and read a great mystery or self-help book!
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Hmmm... Definitely, through friends and family at first. And then I slowly build up my network by blogging about interesting topics. I spread the word about my blogging (and my books!) through Twitter and Facebook. Another great way to meet readers is by going to writing events. I've met friends and readers through creative writing workshops and conferences. Always have a business card or postcard handy with your email and website address, so folks can follow up with you.

Smashwords book reviews by Louisa Dang

  • Death By Clogging on Sep. 26, 2011

    What a great collection of stories! Ms. Logan has a vivid way of describing characters and surroundings, capturing the everyday little details that we tend to pass by but that make her writing so real and compelling. She mixes humor, philosophy, and the feel of Southern down-home storytelling. Very enjoyable and easy to read but with a literary feel!
  • The Timeless Counselor: The Best Guide to a Successful Psychic Reading on Nov. 15, 2011

    Ms. Ahern's book is very clearly written and well organized. I found it easy to read and informative -- does exactly what it says, which is to give you advice about how to seek out and interpret psychic readings. Her down-to-earth style takes the mystery out of psychic readings, and I think you could apply much of her information to seeking a counselor as well. I really like that she gives recommendations for further reading as well.
