Karen’s Killer Book Bench: Karen/K.L. Docter Connections Update!


Karen Docter/K.L. Docter Connections Update!!

Calling all readers, bloggers, reviewers, contemporary romance and romantic suspense lovers…

Since many readers still don’t know that I write both contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels, I’ve been busily updating all of my social media and connections so that readers can find me.

Last week I put out the call for readers to join my Street Team. Did you miss it? Want to know more about what a Street Team does for an author as well as discover what kind of goodies YOU get by joining my Street Team? You can find that blog here:  http://www.karendocter.com/karens-killer-book-bench-join-karenk-l-docters-street-team.html

Today I want to give you a comprehensive look at where you can find me. Let’s play everywhere! 🙂


WEBSITE/BLOG: http://www.karendocter.com

You’re looking at it! Here, you can find connections to almost everything. Like every other author website, you can use the tabs at the top to peek into my bio, books, photos I’ve taken, the workshops I teach, etc. You can find photos of Colorado during the seasons. There are even photos of Bumblebee. Haven’t heard me refer to Bumblebee yet? Go check out the photos under Girls Need Toys, Too!

Since I write two separate genres with two different names, I’ve divided up the columns to make it easier for you to see everything I’m doing. Although there are some general things on both outside columns, I’ve devoted the left column to my contemporary romance, Karen Docter, persona. The right column belongs to my romantic suspense, K.L. Docter, persona.

The middle column is my Karen’s Killer Book Bench blog. I blog almost every weekday now sharing Interviews and Book Bench spotlights on a wide variety of other author books, (mostly romance, but not all). I talk about my work on occasion but I also love sharing my fellow writer’s work with my readers. I also host two blog tour companies so you’re bound to find something you like. We all love books, right?

Another blog special feature is Karen’s Killer Fixin’s on Fridays. I post one of my favorite recipes from my two personal cookbooks or run an **Author Special** for that author who wants to share one of their favorites along with a spotlight of their new release. All of the recipes I’ve shared these past few years can be found in the menu in the right column.

If you don’t want to miss a blog, you can Subscribe to Blog via Email (top left column). As a subscriber, each day’s blog photo and brief explanation comes directly to your Inbox. Easy peasy. If the headline intrigues you, simply click on the link in the email and it takes you right to the blog article. This is a great feature for those of you who don’t want to miss anything but need a few days to get to it. All blog subscribers are entered in a monthly drawing for a chance to win a $5 Amazon or Starbucks (winner’s choice) gift card, my way of sharing my love of books and coffee with my readers.

If you don’t want to subscribe to the daily blog, I do have a News Alerts ONLY button (top left column, too) that adds your name to my mailing list. This mailing list isn’t a newsletter. You will only receive the occasional email about my upcoming releases/appearances/sales.

I have three pages on Facebook: my personal page, my Karen Docter Fan page, and my K.L. Docter Fan page. It looks like I’m on Facebook all day. I’m really not. I do, however, dip in throughout the day between projects. I don’t have time to chat much but I do try to respond to all comments…eventually. And I love sharing fun things to make us all smile. 🙂

I also created a Facebook Group page for romance lovers only called Book Bench for Romance Lovers. All members are romance authors or their PAs or bloggers or romance readers, and includes all romance genres from Inspirational to Erotic. You can request membership here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/281099382014548/

Karen/K.L. Docter’s Street Team is also on Facebook and is a “closed” group, which means you CAN join and be a part of my team, but you’ll need to request membership at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/248004508712978/ Please read the blog from Monday about what joining this group entails.



Join me on Pinterest! I have a variety of boards to share and love finding fun new stuff to pin. I have an eclectic mix of pins, from foods, clothes, and outer space to pins I compile for my books, i.e. hero and heroine photos I use for inspiration, their cars, homes, etc. Join me here: https://www.pinterest.com/karendocter/



Join me on Goodreads. I have all of my books there, as well as my blog and books that I’m reading or have read. I’m about to run a couple of Book Giveaways for my paperbacks so watch for those in the next week or so. I list both of my genres here:  https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5754902.Karen_Docter



I know Shelfari has fallen out of favor with many readers but I still have a page there and try to update it whenever I’m updating Goodreads. If you’re on Shelfari, you can find me here: http://www.shelfari.com/karendocter

I have several fun things coming up soon. I’m working on a holiday novella that fits in the True Love In Uniform series, as well as a third book I hope to publish by the end of December.
