Expanding beyond the blog

by Donna Huber

I can't believe on Monday I will celebrate 4 years of blogging. It has been a fun 4 years. I feel that I've hit my stride with the blogging and now branching out into book selling. I've recently joined up with BookSurf as an independent consultant. You might have seen some graphics and mentions on my social media channels. I thought I would tell you a little more about it.

BookSurf is a direct sales catalog company. Think Tupperware, Mary Kay, Avon, but for BOOKS! And not just any books. Books from some of the best authors in the indie publishing community. Plus these books are instant collectibles because each paperback is signed by the author. You will recognize some of the names as the authors and their books have been featured on Girl Who Reads before:

Chasing Invisible by Karen Pokras Toz
Sacrifice by Stacey Rourke
The Brown House by Christy Sloat
Erin by Monette Pangan
Destine by Katherine Polillo
Dragon Wars by Emily Fogle
And more!

BookSurf offers really good deals on SIGNED paperbacks. Each are $12 (plus shipping and tax), but the more you buy the more you save.

Books aren't the only things you can get. Looking for some reading accessories (aka swag)? We have several fun items available.

Like Tupperware and Origami Owl Jewelry, PARTIES are the thing. If you are in the North Georgia area and interested in hosting a party in your home, I have samples and games and prizes to make for a fun night talking about books. A party could be a great way to kick-off a new book club or one restarting after the holidays. Live a little further away or not interested in having a party at home? We can do an online party. 

Actually I'm having a Facebook party starting on Sunday to celebrate my birthday. I hope you will come to it. There will be a special guest each day, prizes to be won, and other goodies. Here's the line up:
  • January 18 - Karen Pokras Toz at 3 pm EST
  • January 19 - Emily Fogle at 12 noon EST
  • January 20 - Christy Sloat at 10 am EST
  • January 21 - Elizabeth Kirke at 1 pm EST
  • January 22  - Stacey Rourke at 7 pm EST
  • January 23 - Wendy Nystrom at 1 pm EST

There's a special hostess package for any parties in January:
