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.
I for one am guilty of not using this site to its full potential, and I'm sorry. I admit that I spend entirely too much time working on my craft, and sometimes don't go into this site--or any other--for weeks.
I really appreciate what you're trying to do, and I'll support you any way I can. Let me know what you'd like us to do.
Thank you. I was hoping that more people would have read the author interviews I've been doing a leave a few words of encouragement. I'm still learning how to get my blog out there and more traffic. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
I plan to carry on with the author interviews, as there are so many talented authors who should have lots of praise!
I had no idea. And what beautiful music too. Will visit you often. Would be happy to set up author blog interviews with you.
Suggestion on site layout, consider revising. Very hard on the older eye to read. Might help, won't hurt to use softer coloring.

Thank you so much. The music plays in the USA but not here in Europe, so I'm working on getting another link. You are right about the colors. I will soften them. Please let me know if you have any other suggestions.
Yes, as I said to David, I plan to carry on with my author interviews. That would be wonderful!
I just visited your blog, Dee. Very nice! Beautiful music, as well. Hopefully others will spot it soon and participate.
Thank you David. And thanks for your support.
Dee, I left a message on your website page. :)
Also, I looked for a specific place where to inquire about being an interviewed author, but don't see where to do that. ??
Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I apologise, I did not think about having a place for requests. But will work on getting one in place. Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks. Dee
