Every year sport fans all across the world go crazy over the NCAA March Madness Basketball Tournament. This year, 2018 is no different. Authors, Readers, Bloggers, Publishers and Editors work most every day. Fact is, I believe we’re no different than an athlete. It’s been said that Athletes, Artists, Authors, Actors and Singers all come from the same cloth. Most likely we have to connect with the Divine to reach stardom, along with doing some challenging work to prevent ourselves from becoming starving artists much like an athlete has to work-out daily to stay in shape. I challenge Authors, Readers, Bloggers, Publishers and Editors to use the next couple of weeks starting Tuesday, 3/13/18 to do our own March Madness. Although in the basketball world, they fill out a bracket at the beginning of the tournament, I suggest we fill our brackets out as the tournament unfolds. The winners will be those who partake in promoting, reading, reviewing, and advancing as many books as possible in the days to follow. In doing so, everyone becomes a winner.
The Rules of engagement:
- List all books purchased March 2017 through March 31, 2018 on a bracket sheet or create one in excel. Books must be from a first or second-time Author who has published between these dates. Help these Authors become known. Try to find Authors from the North, South, East and West regions of the US.
- Write a review on those books purchased and read on Amazon, Barnesandnoble.com or Goodreads. (Books bought during that timeframe count)
- Write a blog about the books you’ve read and chosen for your bracket and post or tweet them on Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram. Make sure you mention the March Madness Blog
- Do one or more daily tweets in Twitter of another Authors book published between March 2017 and through March 31, 2018. (Keep Track of those Books and post them in your bracket list.) Make sure you mention or link the March Madness blog.
- Do one or more daily post of another Authors book published between March 2017 through March 31, 2018 on Facebook. (Keep Track of those Books and post them in your bracket list.) Make sure you mention or link the March Madness Blog.
- Follow the Author on Amazon, Twitter, Goodreads or friend them on Facebook and Instagram.
- Editors, Bloggers, Readers and Publishers – Visit an author’s website and send them a note about how their book made you feel.
- Authors, visit an Editor’s, Publisher’s, or Blogger’s website or post. Let them know you were there because of the March Madness Blog.
- Post your bracket on Facebook so others can see. Make sure all posts refer to the March Madness Blog.
Have Fun, be Creative and get to know more Authors.
