MONTROSE author Chris Longmuir is one of only 30 authors to be invited to join a new internet project showcasing their work internationally.

Launched in June this year, dedicates a page to each author to highlight their writings, publications and links and encourage readers on a global scale to become associate readers.

They link with the invited authors and work together to promote their writer’s publications through networking and social media.

Chris, a founder member of the Angus Writers’ Circle, has published three novels and two collections of short stories and already has three associate readers, two of whom are from Canada.

She said: “I was honoured to be asked to join Like every writer, creating awareness to the widest audience is very important. In the short time since went live so much has happened and the visibility of all the authors invited has increased dramatically.

“This has been down to networking with all of the associate readers. As the publishing world experiences many changes, authors must also expect to be involved in much of the marketing of their books. is helping authors like myself to promote even further and through this I have seen several new five star reviews appear on Amazon for my books.”
