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.
Thanks for this! Will go check it out :)
I am lance edmonds on goodreads. I do copy and paste my reviews from TBMN onto my page over there as well as on Amazon Kindle where the book lives :-)
I am working with not only indie authors here on The Book Marketing Network, but I also post reviews for Dagda Publishing.
Please stop by and leave a comment on the blog.
Dagda Publishing is celebrating their first birthday by giving away free books!
Go get yours before they're all gone!
Thanks for the heads up, 4-LAN!
Another way you can sell your books is to advertise them at your own expense. I did that before but the ad fees were more than my profits from those books. On one site, for every 3000 clicks I received, I sold one book. Can you think of a cheaper way to market on the Internet?
May I re-publish your article, above, at my blogs so as to thank and honor your noble action?
Thanks and look forward to your reply soon,
You may reprint 5 to 8 of the ways to help a book author, but then please send readers to the blog post now featuring 51 ways to help an author you love. That way you get to share, and I get to receive some credit and traffic for my part of the contribution.
My good friend and fellow writer, Martin Murphy, has just taken the next step with his novel Soul Lifter. Until now, Soul Lifter was only available as an e book. Martin is very happy to announce the availability of his book in paperback.
To help Martin celebrate this achievement, i am re posting my review of Soul Lifter.
So, please stop by and leave a comment on the blog and be sure to stop by Martin's page and congratulate him.
