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.
Is there any reputable blog book tours I could look into? I'm trying to find any avenue I can to get the word out about my book.
I have worked with Pump Up Your Book promotions ... very fun!
I would be interested in learning more about your efforts to host authors on your blog. My book, Kilimanjaro and Beyond - A Life-Changing Journey" will be released in August. It is about my journey as a 60-year old to get off the couch to climb Africa's tallest mountain with my son and our subsequent efforts to bring clean water and a classroom to a community in Tanzania. It describes the satisfaction that one can get from reaching a goal and giving others the opportunity to achieve theirs.
If you still have an opening in the fall, I would love to talk with you about it.
Shawn, congrats on your achievement in writing about your experience in our neighbouring country (Tanzania) . At our platform, bookway builder, we offer online ebook retailing and distribution services to authors and publishers alike, especially on African content. We'll be glad to work with you, this August.
I'm a newbie to this site. Also a christian. What sort of books do you work on?
I'm not sure who you are asking. There are all sorts of book authors and books featured on this site. Lots of Christians as well as a few other religions and non-religions. I would guess there are at least 1,000 avidly Christian book authors in this network. Check them out. Perhaps you can do some joint book promotions.

As an example, I have a book which is due to be released hopefully before the end of the summer. It's titled 'Time With The Masters: what ancient men and women want you to know about running the race of life". It's about the wisdom we of the 21st century get from men and women of old; specifically, Bible characters like Jabez, Paul the Apostle, David, Nehemiah.
Would be interested to find fellow authors who write similar works.
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,
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 www.griefandhope.net 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.
