One thought on “AUTHOR PROFILE

  1. Hello,

    My name is Elizabeth Brown and I run a site called The Frugal eReader. If you are not familiar with the site, I hope you welcome this eMail and allow me to tell your more about The Frugal eReader.

    The Frugal eReader is a site dedicated to featuring Frugal Finds Under Nine for the Kindle. It has been live for only five months, however it has consistently grown its readership and following, not only through the direct site, but the social sites as well. This has been done by wonderful word of mouth, as well as my marketing efforts. I am a true supporter of the self-published author community, and have been expanding the opportunities for your work to be promoted on the site.

    I’ve made many efforts, including interviews and paid advertisements, to invest back into the brand. These efforts are made to establish The Frugal eReader in this market, and to help gain additional exposure for you. I hope that it continues to grow, and continues to be seen as a valued resource where you can showcase your work.

    As I previously stated, The Frugal eReader has continued to grow. For January, unique visitors and page views were up 84% and 37% respectively to November numbers. Additionally, eBook sales have grown 21% since November. Facebook fans (Now 1,574!), RSS subscribers, and the recently added eMail subscription option are all increasing as well.
