RLF Gems 
In November, Romance Lives Forever had 29 posts in a 30 day month. On the 11th, there was a tribute to authors who are also veterans. Here are the top posts (judging by page views).

1. Elle James, Delilah Devlin (authors who are sisters and veterans)
2. Jenna Storm
3. Sharon Hamilton
4. Sascha Illyvich
5. TD Hasset

Honorable mention: Diane Saxon, DP Denman, Nancy Corrigan, Rue Allyn, and the Salute to Author Veterans, all of whose posts scored within a few points of the top five.

Romance Lives Forever features authors and new books. It has a blogger's FAQ page with a downloadable guide and optional interviews. Readers can follow via Google Friend Connect, Networked Blogs, Bloglovin', Linky Followers, email, an RSS feed, and there's a blog button readers and authors can grab.. RLF takes up to three images per article, so authors can share previous books. The blog uses author or publisher names as SEO tags on posts, and author Twitter handles in the titles. The site is broadcast over Triberr with a potential reach of over a million readers via its Twitter-linked network. Twitter mentions are also gathered in several ezines, giving the author an additional opportunity for promotion. At the end of each year, a pdf version of the blog is available for readers to download and share.

The Romance Lives Forever ezine features guest authors on its front page every day. The Yahoo Group Romance Lives Forever has nearly 1200 members, and is Kayelle's private group. It is open once a month to authors who have been guests on the blog. Guests get one day to post info, share news, book releases, offer contests, and so on. For that day, the group is open and members are allowed to reply and take active part. It's like an old-fashioned chat, where you can share and answer questions. Only authors who have reserved the day are allowed to post, so it's exclusive. There is no charge. You can read more about it here:
