Sign up for Author Exchange

Let's Give Some #AuthorLove to #Romance Authors

Normally, during this time of year I do a Summer Exchange, but I thought we might all need some #AuthorLove.

To make this work, you will need to have #AuthorLove and #Romance in your title.
(This makes it easier for people to find it and retweet.)

Here's how it works:

  1. You sign up and agree to host others on your blog by leaving your email address in the comment section. Put your Name, Email address, genre.
  2. Then email others on the list and let them know that you are interested in doing an exchange
  3. Give dates you have available to host them.
  4. Please put Author Exchange in the subject line so they won't think you are spam.
  5. Decide on dates and exchange posts.
  6. Post should included the following information:
  7. Title should use #AuthorLove and #Romance. (this is to make it easier to retweet) 

Also include the graphic above.

- send over your cover
- blurb - less than 300 words
- excerpt - less than 500 words
- Purchase links not more than 5
- author short bio - 100 words or less.
- author links - no more than 5

Now you might be asking why should I or anyone do this.

Because it gains exposure to your books.
- I personally have over 49 K followers on Twitter
- I'm on Triber and my post are retweeted by others which claims over a million more people are reached (but I have no way to confirm this number)
- my blog is shared on my social networks- FB, Google +, Twitter, and LinkedIn
If you use #AuthorLove in the title your post can be easily retweeted by other people involved in the author exchange.

Add in other authors that also have twitter, goodread and facebook accounts and you increase the exposure for your book.

The Exchange runs from  (June 15 - July 30) Check back daily for others who have signed up for the exchange.  ****No one will be allowed to join after  July 5.

If have any question or problems email me. subject  #AuthorLove

Thanks for letting me share your book with the world,

Hey Tina, thank you for organizing #authorlove because our sales go up when we love other authors' writing. I am ready any time, and my blog calendar is wide open so hit me! I am happy to spotlight any genre including erotic but the post needs to be general in nature.
Kathleen Rowland,, steamy romantic suspense

Linda McLaughlin said...

Thanks for organizing the #authorlove exchange, Tina.

I'm Linda McLaughlin, sometimes w/a Lyndi Lamont. I write historical romance, sweet to steamy, and some paranormal romance.

My blog is pretty wide open except for Tuesdays and Fridays. I'll host any genre, but I ask that the excerpt be G or PG.


Linda McLaughlin said...

Addendum to comment above: my blog is wide open in July except for Tues. & Fri. I have a very few June dates still open. Email me at

Jeanne St. James said...

I'm willing to swap with steamy, spicy, erotic romance authors (any subgenre) or even erotica authors. Most of my excerpts are R rated due to language.

I write contemporary erotic romance and some of my stuff borderlines erotica (my newest series).

My blog fills up fast, so please email me at to set up a swap.

Sharon Bell Buchbinder said...

Thanks for doing this Tina. I'm happy to swap any romance genre--except inspirational. Excerpts for my blog need to be G rated, as I don't have an adult warning. Much of June and July are pretty open, with rare exception. Email me at sharonbellbuchbinder(at)gmail(dot)com

Thank you, Tina! This is a great opportunity.

Mia Celeste said...

Thanks Tina.

I’m excited to participate in #authorlove. I’m always looking for a new book to read and a new guest to have on my blog. I like to post on Wednesday nights, but I’m open to fitting into my guest’s schedule. When would you like your post to appear? I can usually make it happen.

I’m Mia Jo Celeste and I write fantasy and paranormal romance, but I read everything, so again, any genre is welcome. That said, I’d like posts and excerpts to be G or PG.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you—miaATmiacelesteDOTcom

Patricia Preston said...

I have room on my blog this summer for posts. I write mainstream contemporary romance and historicals. I will host all genres except erotica. My blog is open to the public, so posts need to be PG.

email me at

Kris Bock said...

My romantic adventures vary from sweet to PG-13 (occasional on-screen sex scene). I have one that is permanently free now – The Mad Monk's Treasure. My schedule is open to host other authors, but I avoid posting erotica and any excerpts from spicy romance need to be G rated.

Kris Bock said...

PS - I'm at krisbock at krisbock dot com

Christa Maurice said...

Hi, I write under 3 pen names.

1. Christa Maurice is mostly steamy contemporary and that blog is available Sunday, Monday, Thursday, and Saturday.

2. C. B. Maurice is sweet/clean, but ranges in subgenre and is wide open.

3. Belle Maurice is kinky/erotic romance and is also wide open.

Bre Meli said...

Thank you so much Tina! Such a great thing to do for authors like me trying to break out into this competitive world. Having friends is such a wonderful thing.

I'm Bre, I write step, rocker, paranormal and new adult romance. All contain adult content.

I just started my blog so this is a great opportunity for me! My blog is wide open for sharing.

I would love to support all the other indie authors around! I believe that we should band together, support one another and do all we can to pump each other up!

Feel free to send me anything you'd like to have shared.

My Twitter following is decent and my Facebook page is close to 1200 likes.

I am all for sharing the #AuthorLove

RDH said...

This is a fantastic idea, thank you!

I write contemporary, interracial, and paranormal erotic romance with Loose Id and Boroughs Publishing Group, under the pseudonym of Roxanne D. Howard. I love to have other authors on my blog and this would be an excellent opportunity. I'd prefer to swap with any other author at least romance-oriented (it doesn't matter which genre). My email is I have over 2,000 followers on Twitter and 3,000 on Facebook. I look forward to swapping!



Whitley Cox said...

Hello, everyone! Thanks so much for doing this, Tina, what a great idea! I write contemporary erotic romance, with high heat. Usually 4-5 flame with some beginner kink. I'm willing to host anyone on my blog, whether your heat level is the same as mine or not. If you're not comfortable hosting something with explicit language, graphic sexual content, and BDSM that's totally fine, I'm also part of two boxed sets this summer, Tropical Tryst and Feel the Heat and they could both use some love. I can provide a tame excerpt of my book, or just some images, teasers, giveaways (we've got LOTS) and links if that's all you'd like. I'm open and flexible. My own book, Hot and Filthy (5-flame with BDSM) comes out June 29th if anyone would like to feature that. So far, I have lots of open dates in June and July, so just hit me up. We can swap or I can just feature you, I understand my genre is not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm all about helping. Thanks so much, I look forward to swapping with you. Have a lovely summmer

Whitley Cox said...

Oh yeah... (that might help) Whoops!

Erica Lynn said...

Hi, y'all!!! I'm absolutely down to show some #AuthorLove for all us crazy #Romance authors! ;)

I can host anyone on my website at anytime, except for June 7th. Other than that, I am open and ready to showcase some of your work.

I write Contemporary Erotic Romance, so if you're in that genre, then come on!

Anita Philmar said...

Hi everyone,

I'd love to exchange post with everyone. I write eroticromance but I have a story that is tame if you want something rated Pg13.

I have around 20,000 twitter followers and I'm on Triber which helps gets the word out about your book.

email me at anitaphilmar(at)

Look forward to hearing from you,
