Sally is a prolific blogger and is so wonderful at supporting her fellow authors and bloggers. Today, myself and my fellow SE authors, wanted to repay that favour. And what better day to do this than International Awesomeness Day? … I love that there’s a day set aside to celebrate awesomeness! 🙂

A bit about Sally …

I have enjoyed a nomadic existence living in eight countries including Sri Lanka, Malta, South Africa, USA and Spain, before settling back here in Ireland. My work, and a desire to see some of the most beautiful parts of the world in the last forty years, has taken me to many more incredible destinations around Europe and Canada, and across the oceans to New Zealand and Hawaii. All those experiences and the people that I have met, provide a rich source of inspiration for my stories.

After a career in customer facing roles in the hospitality, retail, advertising and telecommunications industry, I wrote and published my first book in 1999 called Size Matters, about my weight loss journey, losing 150lbs in 18 months. This has been followed by 14 further fiction and non-fiction books, including a number of short story collections.

My first book release resulted in a radio interview in Spain that led to four years as a nutritional consultant for an English language station, and this was followed by four years with my own health show and Sunday morning show on local radio station in the UK and then as station director, newsreader and presenter for an online television station.

As a writer I know how important it is to have help in marketing books and from 2002 I have been working with authors on their book launches and publicity. At that time it was very much physical book launches and press coverage locally to stimulate national interest.. Today it is very different with a global market via the worldwide web.

As important as my own promotion is, I believe it is important to support others within our community. I offer a number of FREE promotional opportunities on my blog, linked to my social media. If you are an author who would like to be promoted to a new audience of dedicated readers, please contact me via my blog. All it will cost you is a few minutes of your time. Look forward to hearing from you.

For 2022 there are some changes to the promotions with the focus on those authors I can personally recommend and you can find the details here… The Smorgasbord Bookshelf – 2022 – Free book marketing and Personal Recommendations 


Please take a moment to pop across to Sally’s blog and see all the wonderful things she gets up to. Better still, go to Amazon and check out her books! Sally truly does go above and beyond in supporting us all, and so many of us have benefited from her kindness and generosity.

All of us from Story Empire wish Sally all the very best!
