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.
I did more promo on-line today and booked another reading with a mini workshop at a writer's group in town. And Friday I have a meeting with the head librarian from our main branch public library to talk about possible readings. You just have to keep at it. I've been doing a few hours promo on-line almost every day. Also will be talking to someone next week about the possibility of getting another publicist who will promote me back East.
I am interested in doing some cross-promotion of one or several authors who would like to do the same. I don't think they'd would have to be necessarily writing the same type of books (I write thrillers novels). I think it would be interesting to encourage readers to explore different genres as well through our respective Facebook, Twitter or other social networks pages.
If anyone is interested in doing so, please let me know. More information about my book can be found at these locations: htp://facebook.com/inhisnamebook , http://bit.ly/1yCTl2a , http://bit.ly/1w13WxW or http://amzn.to/1yhxVYa . Thanks and good luck to all.
Be happy to! I offer author interviews and character interviews on my blog - http://joleenenaylor.wordpress.com if you'd be interested or I can also post excerpts if that's more your thing ;)
It has to be combined power for author and publisher. To come up one goal. To provide quality books,novels and etc to readers.
Once again working with an indie author so they can sell more books :-)
|4-LAN, a customer just told us your review was helpful to them while shopping on Amazon.
