The Book Marketing Network

For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers

Authors Working Together to Sell More Books

"Your life changes when you meet people." - Sterling Valentine

I want to encourage the authors and publishers on this Book Marketing Network to work together to help each other to sell more books. That's the main reason I created this network in the first place.

There are so many ways that you can help each other. For example, I wrote an article on 30 Ways to Help a Book Author You Love - http://www.bookmarket.com/loveawriter.htm. Most of those ways apply not only to your friends but also to authors helping each other.

In addition, you can do joint ventures, Amazon Bestseller Campaigns, blog tours, and more.

Please use this forum right here to list your requests for partners as well as your responses or offers to help other authors.

You'll be amazed at what you can accomplish if you work together rather than alone.

For example, I'd love to see a fiction writers co-op promotion where each novelist promotes the other members in the co-op on their blog or website or social network. Tweet about each other. Like each others' Facebook page. Do joint blog tours.

Poets can do the same thing. So can business book authors. Spiritual authors. Christian authors. Cookbook authors. Etc.

Hey fellow Marketeers - I'm preparing for the launch of my serial novel Two Moons of Sera.  Part One is $0.99 and is scheduled to be released on Nov 1 with Part 2 coming out Jan 1st and so on and so forth.  I have created a publicity page here: http://www.fightingmonkeypress.com/index.php?cID=104


 

I posted the trailer, the blurb, the press release, bio info, images and even quick easy things folks can do to help get the word out.  Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.  I'll update it with purchase links and so on when it's available.

 

If anyone is interested in doing a review for my November launch event I'd be delighted to send you a free ARC.  Just email me PavartiDevi@gmail

I am happy to see authors helping each other here. That is what this network is all about.

Yes indeed. Thanks for hosting it John. We would be lost without you.

Thanks John, I'll go read your article now.  I agree that authors need to work together.

Hello everyone, 

I am looking for bloggers to interview me regarding my last collection of poetry. All the information you need is at this link: http://www.fiveyearsandcounting.com/. Information includes a summary, trailer, extracts, reviews, a downloadable press kit, as well as a list of retailers that carry the book.

Two of my many hats are interviewer and professional reviewer. My only requirement is that you should be able to talk about Canadian audiences (one question) in your interview.  

For more information, visit http://www.cendrinemarrouat.com.

Cendrine,

Welcome. While I cannot help with the blogging, I do have a series based out of CAN. You can check them out at www.99series.com and if you like what you see let me know and we may be able to get you some interviews.

Best of luck on your blog tour,

Ginger Marks, Author & Publisher

Welcome, Ashley. Hope everything turns out for you. Yes, this IS a crazy profession. I've been involved with it for the last thirty-odd years and STILL can't figure it out!

Ashley,

Oh my, this is just the beginning. You still have three years work promoting to go, at least. :D

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the link John. To get those kinds of results is well worth the cost. AND look! There's even a discount for those of us who take advantage early.

Aileen,

Aren't you cute. Isn't it fun to learn something new? Sometimes I forget how fun the simple things like this are, simply because I do that all day long. Fascinating to be reminded once again how discovery can make you feel again.

Congratulations and keep learning and growing every day,
