The Book Marketing Network

For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers

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.

John thanks for starting this network, It is a wonderful idea and thanks for letting me into the network.
You are welcome. Now join with some of the other authors here to do some sort of joint promotion. Work together and you'll sell a lot more books.

Self help memoirs about relationship issues reveal many of the life skills I have used in over 30 years as a marriage and family therapist. In my books I tell my story and apply my learning to my life to teach these skills.


Authors might use my books to add relationship issues to their writing if they want to deepen them. For example: In Questing Marilyn I travel in England and Ireland with a group and before I go I get criticized by some people for leaving my family. How I deal with my uncertainty could give authors ideas for their character's development. I know I always get ideas about writing my work from reading. There are free chapters on my web site if you'd like to test this theory.


I'd be happy to share tweets with authors of memoirs and self help books and if you find something helpful on my site then please use the share buitton.

I hope more authors feature their book tours and book launches here on The Book Marketing Network. Again, as I've mentioned before, it's the relationships you build that will help you sell books. You can start to build relationships by helping other authors promote their books. Then, in turn, you can ask them to help you promote your book when it comes out.


Thanks for the suggestion. I hope others will open their opportunities and share in mine as well. You too are included. ;)


Hello everyone,


I just thought I would mention that I am doing book signings in the following locations around Canada:

Saturday, September 10 from 1-3 PM at the Book Stop, 5-1 Jockvale Road, Nepean, Ontario

Tuesday, September 13 from 7-9 PM at Mcnally Robinson in Winnipeg, Manitoba

Sunday, September 18 from 7:30 - 9:30 PM at the Legion Hall in Rapid City, Manitoba

Saturday, October 15 from 3-6 PM at Faith Family Books in Toronto, Ontario


Kilimanjaro and Beyond - A Life-Changing Journey is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Apple ITunes.

Hope you will help spread the word.

Ah a Canuck, my business partner is in the Montreal area.Why don't you tell us more about your book, maybe even give us a tweet or two we can share? Just a thought.


Best of luck.


Would love to do this, but anybody know of such groups in Nigeria? Don't seem to be finding any...


That's the beauty of this beast that has been dubbed the World Wide Web. You don't have to be local to help another like minded person.


That being said, how can we help you? What is your book genre, title and marketing plan?

Presentational Skills for the Next Generation


It's titled THE BLACK BOOK...kind of like a teen fantasy adventure? It's the first in a series of six books I dubbed THE BOOKLORD ADVENTURES and is the ultimate read, really. What you see here is the new cover I made for it, though the present one is OK...I kinda felt it needed a little 'tweaking'if you know what I mean. I've got it up on, Xlibris, Barnes n Noble...and I haven't sold a single copy till date! I even have a website made for it

Will really be grateful if you can help me...and thanks for the concern.



Here is the new cover I currently worked on using zBrush and Maya...
