Guest Posting today over at Marketing Tips for Authors

Hi Everyone - I hope you'll join me over at Tony's site :

Marketing Tips for Authors


Tony Eldridge author of the action/adventure book, The Samson Effect, that Clive Cussler calls a "first rate thriller brimming with intrigue and adventure." He also shares his book marketing tips with fellow authors through his blog and through his free weekly video marketing tips for authors.

Over there I tell my story of how and why I got started and how the blog has developed.

Come on over and meet Tony and join in the fun of sharing with us your starting experiences ..

Thanks in advance for your support – in my role as a Guest at Marketing Tips ..


The Palm House at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, an area in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames in South West London. The institution has the world's largest collection of living plants (over 30,000) as well as the world's largest herbarium (over7 million specimens). Wikipedia picture of today.


Dear Mr Postman - my mother's hearing remains and all seems well - we've been watching a little of the Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India and watched one of the World Championship Cycling Races in Melbourne, Australia - she loved the views of the waterfront and the city!

Dear Hilary, Thank you for your telling me this occasion. I visited there and left my comment. I love your concept of blog being story telling. I use your list to be my reference.

Thanks again!

Hilary,

Thanks so much for your insights on my blog! I definitely want to persuade you to become a repeat contributor in the future. I have a few posts that I add to a rotation that I retweet over time. Your will definitely make that rotation.

Your posts will be as relevant next week, next month, and next year as it is today. Through my rotation, new people will come across your post many times in the future. Thanks again for your contribution to my readers.

Hi Theresa .. that’s wonderful and thanks so much for letting me know here .. and for your kind comment over on Tony’s blog. I’m excited – you’re right .. thank you!! Hilary

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Karen .. thank you .. I feel really honoured – an unexpected pleasure .. and good to see you on Tony’s blog too .. thanks Karen .. you’re so supportive .. enjoy today and every day .. Hilary

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Shaw .. glad the Reader worked! I see you’ve joined Tony as a follower that’s good .. and thanks so much for your comments on both blogs. It is story telling – this blogging process .. it’s fun, while yet a learning tool depending on the blog type .. and glad my list may help in the future .. Thanks to Tony for asking me to put it in!

You too – have a great rest of the week .. all the best Hilary

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Tony .. gosh – thank you! I’ve enjoyed the process .. and would love to join you on your blog as a guest more often – that’s a wonderfully kind gesture .. thanks!!

Also that you’re going to retweet me! For someone who doesn’t use Twitter .. and should be – that will be an incentive to get moving and start using social media a little more .. so I shall get on with it!

That will be wonderful to have new readers .. though I love my present ones too! .. but we can all learn so much from each other –

Thanks Tony for trusting me to be a ‘good guest’! I’ve enjoyed my time and would love to participate with you in the future .. lovely seeing you here & thanks so much for the kind and supportive comment ... have a happy rest of the week .. Hilary

Joanne said...

So look forward to reading your comment .. thanks so much .. Hilary

Talli Roland said...

The Hating Game .. to be published as an ebook on 1st December ..

Chris Edgar said...

Hi Hilary -- I hope you will throw in some tips on how to be a human dictionary, atlas and Bartlett's Famous Quotations while you're at it! :) Looking forward to checking it out.

Stephen Tremp said...

Okey dokey. I'll check it out. Isn't the Internet awesome. We can communicate in real time anywhere any time. A hundred years ago the Trans-Atlantic cable must have seemed like the ulimate in high tech communication.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Chris .. thanks so much - great to see you here .. 'fraid not - but that's probably quite a good idea for the next one ..?!

Really appreciate your thought .. and for visiting Tony's site - have a lovely weekend .. Hilary

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Steve .. good to see you .. and you'll enjoy Tony's site.

You're right .. the Trans Atlantic cable .. you'd have thought would have hauled us back across the Atlantic to be umbilically joined with the States again ... well perhaps we are anyway?!

The net is amazing .. and I'm really looking forward to reviewing your book ..

You too .. have a wonderful weekend and some time off .. if the schedule allows .. Hilary

Hi Hilary,

I just read your post. It's FABULOUS! Even though I knew part of your blogging journey, it was great to the rest of the story.

Congratulations!

Have a great weekend .. Hilary

Liara Covert said...

Hilary, your posts invite your mom to embark on an intriguing journey with you that transcends time, physical borders and other mental barriers. You remind everyone that joy is found within right now. We can ride the magic carpet of the imagination and go where it takes us or deliberately create our own itinerary to uplift spirits and expand the mind.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Liara .. you certainly nail the concept of the journey we're on .. my mother instigates most of her own 'travelling' .. and we do ride that magic carpet of imagination. Then I embellish it with fun thoughts as we laugh and giggle our way along with the flow of her mind ..

It is uplifting and mind expanding - thanks for these words ..

It is certainly an adventuresome journey .. great seeing you here - Hilary
