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.
Thank you Joleen. I will be speaking on book cover design and layout at the Florida Authors and Publishers Association Fall Conference and need the results as a speaking point. Therefore, I much appreciate you taking the time to add your opinion and experience. I'll see what I can do to share the results.
Will look forward to it :) As a book cover designer on the side I am always interested in that sort of thing, LOL!
I wanted to invite you and everybody else reading this discussion to work together to promote one another here on The Book Marketing Network.
I just posted my latest blog/book review entitled What I Am Reading.
This week I am spotlighting our very own Eric Robert Nolan. My review is of his book entitled The Dogs Don't Bark in Brooklyn Any More.
Please check out the blog and then go to Mr. Nolan's page here on The Book Marketing Network. From there you can follow the link to his website and find the free sneak peek of his book at Smashwords and Amazon.
Keep up the great promotions. And I hope more book authors here will follow your example. Cool!
Hi everybody! I am 4-LAN and I am working with other indie authors to help sell more books :-)
Please check out What I Am Reading
This week I am featuring The World Behind the World by Elizabeth Foshee
good review :)
Thanks DM :-)
I just learned how to add a link. So, hopefully more people will actually check out the author's page now that it is just a click away :-)
Cool. Love what you are doing.
I wish more people on this network would do the same.
I just had a wonderful experience working with another author. I would like to thank Joleene Taylor for blog post on her site showcasing my book. It was done in a fun way too where one of the characters from my book got interviewed by one of her characters from her books. Not only will this help my book get noticed more, but it is helping her books get noticed more as well. In fact I have a pin board on pinterest of showcasing fellow authors books to help them get noticed more. Joleene's books are on there and people starting liking her books and perhaps maybe bought a copy. A perfect example of what you just said, and it can work.
I love this. Thanks for participating. More, more, more!
