What is Talk of the Town?

It’s a weekly linky where bloggers and authors can link up their bookish posts.

What post can you link up on Talk of the Town?

It does have to be book related.  Your post can be anything you would like to share with others. It could be a Q&A, guest post, book news, book event, blogging tips, giveaway, top 5 books you’ve read, your weekly/monthly roundup or even something you’ve made from instructions within the pages of a book! As long as it is book related, go for it. The post you link doesn’t have to be recent. It can be from your archives. And you DON’T have to join in every week.

Authors, you blog too! and if you would like to join in you’re very welcome. I would request that you don’t use the linky as promotion only. Links to your books that you have in your posts are fine. For example the fabulous posts I read on your blogs about writing tips or your inspiration etc and some of you join in round robins where you have a question to answer would be great to link up.

There is no cost for you to link up with Talk of the Town.

All posts are shared on Twitter and pinned on a dedicated Pinterest board.

Please feel free to add the badge to the post you’re sharing. Alternatively, you’re welcome to link back to Talk of the Town on your post.

January 2017 sees a new sponsor for #ToTT.  I’m excited to be collaborating with independent publishers Black & White Publishing.

Talk of the TownBlack & White Publishing was founded in 1999. Since then, they’ve grown into one of Scotland’s leading independent publishers with over 300 books in print across a variety of genres. Committed to publishing the best books from the most talented writers in the UK and beyond they produce an extensive range of titles, including general non-fiction,  biography,  sport and humour,  as well as selected fiction,  young adult and children’s books.

Not only will I be showcasing a novel from Black & White Publishing each week but everyone who tweets with the hashtag #ToTT will be entered into a monthly giveaway for either a single book or a book bundle.  This might be paperback or digital.  The winner will be randomly selected using Tweetdraw and books will be sent directly from Black & White Publishing.
