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.
Okay, I love the idea of networking with other authors, writers, and bloggers. So here is a specific way that we can work together. Please consider placing a comment on my blog and I will do the same for you. If enough of us do this and we get to know each other better, then maybe we could organize a virtual blog tour?

I've posted a comment on your blog, Gary. I really liked the post about your writer's secret place. Even though I am a Buddhist and an atheist, I was able to relate to it and I found it inspiring.
I have a Facebook group called Writers' Secrets and I shall share your blog post there.
I'll post you some links to my blog soon. You may find something useful there.
I could not agree more. I am looking for authors and bloggers on the subject of Peace and Nonviolence.
I am also seeking authors and bloggers on the subject of Black health/African American health.
Please contact me if you are interested in submitting a blog post or being interviewed.
Hi,great idea Aileen!

In this coming new year, make a commitment to yourself as an author. Do one thing everyday to market your book.
John, your advice is always so practical. Thanks for this.
