Authors: Create More Buzz for Your Book with a Virtual Book Signing

Here's a way cool idea on how to use social networking to build an audience. My friend and first time author Carmen Shirkey is harnessing the power of facebook, blogs, twitter, you tube and the gads of other social media powers to promote her new book, "The List". It's an integrated campaign without an agent that's cost effective and viral.

Here's the deal:

Visit her blog through Sunday and you can purchase a signed copy of "The List" at a discount. She's also thrown in a fabulous prize for comments, too  -- a gorgeous Peggy Li necklace (her jewelry has been featured on numerous TV shows including, Buffy, Without a Trace and CSI).

The buzz is definitely building for Carmen, and it can for you too. All it takes is a little link love.
