SYNOPSIS: In the small town of Woodsville, Ruby Hood is settling into her role as Guardian of the Wood. In the blink of an eye, her monumental high school graduation comes and goes without her attendance. There are too many other things on her mind.

Her mom, Christine Wood, has just returned from caring for Ruby's ill grandmother. Kent Wolf finally gets released from the hospital and Kayla Wolf is desperate to make amends, while Dylan Hunter works to hone his Huntsman skills. Everything seems like it’s going to work itself out, until Ivy Snow shows up on Ruby’s front porch with an RV filled with seven dwarfs.

As a new darkness casts a shadow over Woodsville, Ruby is unsure where to turn when turmoil erupts in the Wood, and finds herself aligned with an unusual cast of characters. As Guardian of the Wood, Ruby worries that she can’t save everyone, but what if she is the one who needs saving?



In the meantime, check out the first book in the series: 
The Twistedly True Tale of Ruby Hood
By: Stephanie Greenhalgh! 

SYNOPSIS: In the small town of Woodsville, self-assured Ruby Hood becomes tangled in more than traditional teenage angst. With the Homecoming Dance looming, everything at Woodsville High appears normal, but things are not as they seem. Ruby meets a cute boy with a lopsided grin, Dylan Hunter. She flirts shamelessly with the football star, Kent Wolf, and finds herself in a barrage of harsh verbal altercations with his stunning yet wicked sister, Kayla Wolf. Thankfully, she finds solace in her friend, Lilly Fair. Through a series of odd and painful events, Ruby discovers her true calling and the responsibilities that come with her new power and position. Despite her heartache and sorrow, will Ruby find the inner strength not only to protect herself, but also to keep the Wood safe at all cost?

Book Blogs

Follow ALL of the book blogs on FB, that are relevant to your book. KEEP the notifications, so that they pop up on your feed. I know, sometimes, that it gets tempting to switch off the notifications on pages that you like, to 'unfollow' but still like them, to join an event and stop the notifications. There are times that this will save you HOURS a week, in scrolling through notifications, but don't do this to blog pages.
Why?
This week, one particular blog has popped up 6 times on my news feed and each time it's been a Pimp post, where I can post the buy links, name, tagline and a poster for my books. There's no guarantee that it will generate sales, but it WILL get you noticed by the readers who count on these pages to give them good recommendations.
Some have 'random swagging', where they choose a random comment, made across the week, to give a swag pack to. If you win this, as an author, it's great booty to give away at your next event.
 
Some also do competitions, where they pick the best teaser, book cover, of that thread and use it as their profile picture for the week.
A lot of these pages also do regular giveaways, so enter everything. As an author who is also a prolific reader, you could win some great books that you wouldn't otherwise pick up. Or, as I say, you can win some awesome swag to give away at your next event.
The other key thing to remember is this:
Helping others helps yourself.
 ~

We should all, as Indie authors, be helping out our fellow Indies. We all get help along the way and it takes no time at all to pimp someone else's book instead of your own, on one of these pages. Or, maybe, you can pimp your books but also take the time to pimp 1 or 2 others, who you know, like or thinks needs the helping hand.
 The more active you are, the more people see your face, your name, your profile picture.
 
 ~
 
So, here are some really active pages that you should be following, if you want to promote your book more:
