Boost your book's visibility and reach a wider audience by collaborating with fellow writers in our exclusive book marketing campaign 📚✨ #BookMarketing #AuthorsUnite #AuthorPromo

marketing for romance writers

Marketing for Romance Writers Collaboration Day is twice a month. Initial share is the first Wednesday, and the next is the third Thursday.


Mary leaves a URL for a Facebook post. Jane opens the link, and shares it to her own author page. Mary does the same for Jane. Sam leaves a URL for Tumblr. Chris shares it to Tumblr, and Sam does the same for Chris. All authors have increased their SEO* and their chances of being seen.

You do not have to be a member of MFRW to take part, but consider joining us. We help promote one another and share information. Our motto is Seek, Teach, Share, Learn, Succeed.

Collaboration Day Instructions

1.     Create the post you want others to share, on any social media you prefer. Use whatever wording, images, and hashtags are appropriate for your post.

2.     Make it live by sharing the post to that social media.

3.     To get the URL for the post, on most sites, click the date or time on the message to open it in its own window or tab. Copy the URL. On Tumblr, click the three dots on the upper right and choose "copy link."

4.     Return to this post and paste the URL in the comments section. It helps to leave a note regarding the type of book or event, such as "new release", "historical", "sci-fi", "LGBTQ", "contemporary", #PNR", etc. There are no restrictions on genre or heat level.

5.     On Collaboration Day, highlight the URL of any post you wish to share, and then right click to open a new tab or window.

6.     Reshare to your preference of pages or groups, etc. for your account.

PLEASE NOTE: If you think a post isn't right for your account, you are under no obligation to share it.

You can add the comment "caught up to here". No need to comment on each link.

Thank you for taking part!

Retweet with fellow authors on Dec 13, 2023 for Book Retweet Day #MFRWauthor #MFRWorg @MFRW_ORG

It's Retweet Day for MFRW on Twitter. All members of the Marketing for Romance Writers IO Group are invited to set up tweets for their books.

Go into Twitter and create a tweet. Make sure to use #MFRWauthor or #MFRWorg. You can share up to 280 characters per tweet.

Once the tweet has been posted, click anywhere in the white background of the tweet. This will open it and allow you to highlight and copy the URL.

Navigate back to here and paste the URL in the comment section of this post.

Each month, the RT post goes live the Monday before RT day. You can post your tweet until Wednesday night at midnight of the same week.

Retweet Day is on the second Wednesday of each month. Retweet everyone on the list who uses one of the hashtags - and who is sharing a tweet that is suitable for your stream.

To help people find your tweet, click the the white background and then the down arrow (found on the right side). Choose "Pin to Your Profile Page." This will keep the tweet at the top of your Twitter feed so more people can find it.

Retweet Day Rules

1. Must have #MFRWauthor or #MFRWorg in the tweet. (This retweet day is to promote each other and our group.)
2. Do not use profanity or sexual explicit graphics. Keep it for all age groups.
3. Please do not use adult topics for this one tweet.
4. Limit hashtags to three (3) per post.
5. Return on Retweet Day and click each link in the comments.**
6. On the tweet, click the heart and then the retweet button.

** To share a tweet, highlight the url, right click, and you will see an option to open the link or go to the url. Do that, and it should open in a new window and take you there.

Come back after sending the tweet and go through the entire list. 

PLEASE NOTE: If a tweet doesn't fit your stream, you are under no obligation to share it.

Here's to a great day of retweets!
