|RLF Top Blogger Award|
Last month, Romance Lives Forever had 28 posts in a 28 day month. A new interview was introduced: 5 Easy Questions. It consists of 10 questions, of which, an author can pick five, making it one of the fastest to do. This is great for the busy author with a new release. You can download a copy here:

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 Paper.li ezines, giving the author additional opportunities for promotion.
The Romance Lives Forever Paper.li 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: http://is.gd/rlfauthorday
