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 - 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.

Hello Shawn, I am Missy Smith, Author of Blueberry State of Mind, a collection of reflective truths. I would love to be on your blog. I am a writer of "Life Poetry" and just recently published my book March2011. look forward to chatting with you. I am also on Facebook as well.

Hi, I am a new Christian author and would love to have you post a blog on a book that I co-authored with Joan M. Koss titled, Bowing Before God. The book is actually a 40-day Christian devotional. It was written to inspire anyone who is going through hard times.

In this book, Joan acknowledges that God created us with a free will and that unfortunately bad things can and do happen to good people. But, she also goes on to remind us that God is there and He really does care.

At one point Joan wondered if life was even worth living, and as you read through this devotional you'll discover that God is real and you too will want to kneel before Christ in praise and thanksgiving. We serve an amazing God!

I'd be happy to send you a copy of this wonderful devotional.  We'd love the exposure and we think you'll agree, that this is a book that is inspirational.

Keep in touch,

Teila Tankersley

I would like for you to consider hosting me and my book, "Now Is Not Forever--a grief journal of hope" on your blog. My website is and you can log on to familiarize yourself with my work. My book is a ministry to help people find the hope that Jesus offers to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Thank you for this opportunity and I hope to hear from you soon.  Luan Louis

I'd be very interested to be a guest on your blog.



I would love to be a part of your site. I can write a guest post, we can do an interview, or even a contest. My new book is Marketing Your Book on a Budget 2013. It will be out in the next couple of weeks. I have written five books previous to this one; two of them Christian fiction and one of them Christian nonfiction. I have also written a cozy mystery and my first marketing book, which was published last year. Hopefully, you're still taking writers on your site.

I would love to write a blog post for you anytime.

PM me so we can set it up.


Shawn, Do you have more current information? Some of my authors would definitely be a good fit for your blog.

I am interested in Georgia authors, particularly new ones, forming a group for marketing our books as a group at signings and other related events.  I have found that as an unknown author and a self-published one, it is extremely hard to sell my wonderful book.  Any ideas?

I love this idea. I hope some Georgia authors respond to you.


John Kremer, author, 1001 Ways to Market Your Books

Hi! I am a new Georgia author (St. Simons). Just gave a talk last week @ the Georgia Center for the Book in Decatur. They found me through Georgia Backroads magazine. Sales are not brisk. You can contact me from there or from this site.
I am also learning, as I published my first book and live in Middle GA.   I am out of ideas, I have put ads on Google and face book....not a lot, as it is expensive.   I also did Amazon optimization.  Just keep the faith, keep doing ads and promotions and like me believe you will get there.
