What is Six Sentence Sunday? Or what is #sixsunday?
|Ever wondered? Ask!|
I've been participating in Six Sentence Sunday for about a year, in various capacities. It's both a marketing opportunity and a chance to discover new books and new authors.
Basically, the way it works is, if you're an author or an aspiring author and you have a blog, you go to the Six Sentence Sunday website sometime between Tuesday and Saturday. You sign up on the list for the following Sunday, and then your name shows up on the list.
|Use your social media!|
On the Sunday, people come to your blog, you go to the blogs of other people. What I like to do is go to the Six Sunday website and go through the list, clicking on every name. Sometimes, I read a book I like that's available for sale and I buy it. Sometimes I just am entertained for awhile. It depends on the week and who I click on. There are a few people I visit every week because I think they put up good excerpts.
Additionally, I suggest that you use your social media (Facebook, Twitter, blog, newsletter) to direct people to the #sixsunday phenomenon. Especially your readers, if you have them. It's a great opportunity to sample some fantastic writing.

What about you? Have you ever participated? Are you participating this week? Let me say one thing about NKotWB: We never fault a writer for asking questions. So if you have them, feel free to ask them!
