This weekend we’re in for a treat! I am so excited to have as my visitor the founder of MFRW, Kayelle Allen! Kayelle, take it away!
What’s With All the Knock Knock Jokes?
Have you seen all the #KnockKnock hashtags on Twitter
lately? Half of them are attached to the hashtag #mfrwSummerCamp. Why?
You remember what summer camp was like, right? S’mores by
the campfire, corny songs sung till you were blue in the face, burnt hot dogs,
sleeping in a wet tent, hanging out with new friends, telling Knock Knock jokes?
Well, the last two are likely to happen at the summer camp I’m talking about,
but not so sure about the other items. Never was that fond of damp sleeping
MFRW stands for Marketing for Romance Writers – a Yahoo Group
whose members are focused on learning marketing and publicity. I created MFRW
in 2006 to help about a dozen friends. We’ve grown a bit. Yesterday the count
was 1256, and we’re adding members daily. What do we do?
We discuss ways to advance our careers, brainstorm new ventures
and ideas, get feedback, and find others interested in mutual promotion. Our motto
is “Seek, teach, share, learn, succeed.” We welcome marketing-related
material that asks a question, offers a promo or idea, or is a request for help,
advice, or opinions. We offer opportunities to promote and join others in promotional
efforts. As fellow authors (published and not-yet), publishers, literary agents,
editors, author promo groups, promo assistants, and artists, we are your support
group and co-workers. Need to buy pens, pins, or other goodies? Found a great place
to do that? Please share. We are open to all fiction and non-fiction genres without
limit. Our writing per se is not discussed; we focus on creating an image and using
it effectively. Pitch sessions and calls for submission are welcome.
We decided to use our large numbers to get some free
training for members. In March, we put out a call for volunteers to teach
during a two-day online free conference. We called it Marketing Summer Camp.
The schedule is daunting but awesome. You can click here
