We have been using HeartFelt Promos to promote our author’s books since 2012 and we couldn’t be happier! Regina is pleasant to work with, and willing to do whatever it takes to make her authors happy. Her promotions packages, and single services are reasonably priced so that even an author or publisher who is on a budget can afford them. We routinely purchase her services to help us get the word out about our author’s new releases as well as their back list books with us. I cannot recommend her enough, she is one of the most honest people I have had the pleasure to work with. If you want excellent quality from a promotions person who actually cares that you and or your authors succeed, then you want Regina Lavonne of HeartFelt Promos!

I have to recommend HeatFelt Promotions for their serious approach, their promptness in delivering the anticipated results, their orientation toward clients’ needs and expectations, their hard-wording approach that gets things done. They don’t just work on increasing an author’s sales. I’ve tried other companies in the past, but have to admit I wasn’t too happy with them after a while. The main problem being they’d concentrate on one aspect alone. Like only sending promo loop e-mails. Or just taking care of the social media promotions. Working with HeartFelt, I’ve come to understand how essential a holistic approach is for the author. ‘Cause you don’t just market a book. You market yourself, first and primarily. That’s why I’m with HeartFelt. They work a lot on improving the author’s image. On spreading the author’s brand, whatever that may be. On increasing the author’s popularity through social medias and a careful mix of all the available techniques. Not promoting through loops alone, but using gadgets, video book trailers, blog posts, interviews, reviews and well-aimed bouncing of information. That’s why I trust them to do my promotion!

Heartfelt Promos Testimonial – an A++!
I have enjoyed working with Heartfelt Promos since my first published novel, Promise Me in the summer of 2012. After a guest interview “In the Hot Seat” for that novel, I contracted again with Regina for a ten stop blog tour for my sequel, Broken Promise in fall of 2012…and now again for the blog tour for the next sequel, Taken in the Night in summer 2013.
Regina is always helpful, considerate, and goes over and above to help authors, especially ones that are already on overload from deadlines. She has tried her very best to make all three of my tours to date the best they could be. The best recommendation is that I will be using her services again for more sequels…and am trying to get her to branch out into other genres besides romance so I could have her book tours for my other books!
Service: At least half of service is value for the money spent. Regina gives great packages that are a good value for the money spent with her. She is knowledgeable about all aspects of blogging and answered all of my questions the very same day, and most of the time within an hour. She got me info for my blog topics and my interview questions as soon as she had them, which helped me stay ahead and on time with my side of the tour. I never feel as if I’m on my own with Heartfelt Promos.
Try them. You won’t be disappointed! —Tara Fox Hall, Author of the Promise Me Series
I wholeheartedly recommend working with Heartfelt Promotions to help get the word out about your new book. They do the legwork, which saves you a LOT of time, and you can focus on coming up with great post topics. The prices are extremely reasonable, and the process is easy and straightforward. I loved working with Regina, who was always super friendly, and as a bonus, she’d email me a reminder a few days before one of my blog posts were due. This was a nice touch, and very helpful for someone like me who’s not the most organized person in the world!

I can’t say enough great things about the services at Heartfelt Promotions. Regina went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I had the best possible exposure for my writing. I received constant updates, offers and invitations to promote and be promoted. Working with her was very easy, and she was always so nice that I felt comfortable contacting Heartfelt Promotions with any questions. They make promoting so much fun.
Kimberly Adkins, Author of Hart’s Destiny
Regina was a great help to me, and as a new author she was always available to answer my questions, and had great patience with me. I’d recommend her to any new author looking for some help in promoting their work.
Martin Crosbie, Author of My Temporary Life
Every author needs a friend who can help promote work, whether it’s chatting up another friend online, posting info for you, or finding good spots where you can chat. A promotion service does all that and more. Heartfelt Promos is perfectly named, because you get the heart of the owner along with the promotion help, and they become your partner as well as your friend. Heartfelt Promos provides that personal connection between you and your readers, solid advice, places to chat, regular promotions, ideas for promos that are unique, and the beauty of it is all this is going on while you’re writing the next book! Heartfelt is part of my permanent marketing budget and will be for a long time to come. If you’re feeling swamped, check out their site [HeartFelt Promos] take a look at prices and various offerings, and then ask for someone to call or email you. You’ll get the personal touch that you need — and, worth its weight in book sales — the relief of knowing they are as concerned about making you successful and your readers happy and satisfied as you are. I highly recommend Heartfelt Promos.

HeartFelt Promos gives you a real bang for your money. Karen at HeartFelt Promos is easy to work with and goes beyond the typical Romance site. When you promote with Karen, you really get so much more than you ever might have envisioned. She exchanges in abundance for your very precious promotional dollar.
I really recommend HeartFelt Promos!
Karen Kay, Author of The Last Warrior
I trusted HeartFelt Promos to get the job done. I just turned it over to them and didn’t worry about it! I know my promotion was done because I heard from a lot of my readers. I honestly don’t recall a lot of details other than the fact that HeartFelt Promos was quite willing and able to work within my budget and got my name out all over the place. With my schedule of four books a year, once I sign off on something, I have to put it out of my mind and move on, which is exactly what I did for the period when HeartFelt Promos was handling my promotion. I wish I could do it again, but with the current economy and a retired husband, I’ve had to adopt VERY frugal ways!
I was really happy with the attention to my needs as an author, enjoyed the chats and the turnouts was excellent, as I recall. I have since recommended HeartFelt Promos to other authors looking for a promotional boost. Other than that, there’s not much I can say. I asked for a short term promotional package, and then I turned it all over to HeartFelt Promos and went back to writing. An author can’t ask for more!
Kate Douglas, Author of The Wolf Tales Series
Having a new release is always an exciting but stressful time for me as a writer, and with my latest book, “Dark Hunger,” I was extremely grateful to have had the invaluable assistance of HeartFelt Promos to help me get the word out! It was a tremendous relief to know that each week, HeartFelt would be handling the online distribution of press releases and excerpts, so that I could get back to the business of writing. For me, the fact that HeartFelt’s promotional services didn’t cost me an arm and a leg was the icing on the cake!

“Writing is the hardest way of earning a living, with the possible exception of wrestling alligators.” Olin Miller.
I never fully appreciated this, until I started chasing my dream of writing and years later signed my first contract. Like every author, I suddenly found myself drowning, juggling plotting, writing, editing, rewriting, deadlines, newsletter, websites, blogs, promo, marketing, work, family, who reminded me that I used to take vacations, an endless list that grew bigger every day. It may take me months to produce that novel, but an avid reader can devour it in a few days and want to know when the next one will be released. That’s why I talked to Karen Simpson to see what Heartfelt Promos could do to shoulder some of my workload.
Every time I check my newsletter or promo, now ready to go out, I remember how long it would have taken me, especially since the paperback of A PERFECT AFFAIR, my contemporary romance, is here, and BLOOD HUNT: THE LEGEND, my bestselling hot vampire, witch e-book will be released in paperback this January.
