For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
"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.
'Two strangds are stronger than one.' I think this is a very informative post because a lot of breakthroughs in my life have come from my own work, but just an equal amount have come thrugh people who loved me.
I am launching a new book promotion online game to increase traffic to author's books. I value the feedback of this group and hope you will take a look and send me some feedback.
I have been working on a follow up book to the "Our Explosive Sun" published by Spinger. My new book is soon coming out and its is called: "The Northern Lights - a Guide".
It is published in English but by a Norwegian Publisher. I guess to e..g. sell the book in US I need to find a US publisher etc.. Or, since my Norwegian publisher also sell books via Amazon, maybe I might as well just let the book be available there?
Or how do Amazon do about printing the book and shipping. Shipping them from Norway to US would be to expensive I guess..
So I am quite happy and excited. Now I need to promote it well. Suggestions are welcome.

I have three monthly series on my blog to promote other authors and their books: Mystery Author of the Month, Mystery of the Month and Getting to know you.
The Mystery of the Month for January is Lesley A. Diehl's new release, Grilled, Chilled and Killed. I hope you'll stop by.
Hey guys, here's a few of my books for anyone who would like to check them out. How To Lose 15 Pounds Prenatal Yoga: Build Strength, Improve Your Breathing, & More! Delicious Kale Recipes: Nature's Healthy Superfood! Will check out everyone else's books as well, also if anyone here publishes on Amazon KDP and would like to exchange reviews on books to improve sales and ranking, I'd be happy to do so also!
Finally - the book about the Northern Lights is available in the UK (and can also be ordered from other European countries). I will present the book at the Nordic Cool festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC in March.

I was recently interviewed by Lloyd Gardner (local reporter) and I told him quite honestly the most difficult part is not writing a book, but marketing it, getting yourself out there is no easy task. I went as far as posting a picture of my book cover and a direct link to my amazon published book on craigslist all over the world, much to my disappointment? Nothing, even though I have an excellent review and 5 stars. I made a facebook page, a twitter account and quite frankly it takes up most of my day when I could be writing as i'm working on 8 other stories. But I agree when there are strength in numbers. http://jacksonmichealweiand.blogspot.ca/2013/02/interview-with-jack...
