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 - 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.

I love this idea and am more than willing to participate.  I do book reviews on my site for no fee, all you have to do is send me a request and if I'm interested I'll let you know.  If you can provide a copy of the book I'll get to it that much faster.  I would love to have guest blogs and am interested in doing blog tours.  I'm still working on my first novel, although I have a short story published now, so I don't need the publicity myself but am more than happy to help my fellow artists!

Great offer. I hope some authors take you up on it. They'd be smart to do that.

Hiya!

 

I'd love for you to do an interview of one of my two debut novels on your site!

 

One, Steam Queen is a steampunk novel and the 2nd book is a children's fantasy novel about a Guardian Angel. I've got pdf copies of each to send if you'd be interested?

 

I'd also definitly love to do a guest blog post on your site too!

Jack, I don't know how I never got this comment!  I'm so sorry.  Just checking back now.  Email me PavartiDevi@gmail

Pav,

I would be happy to do a guest blog with your group. It is nice to see some recent activity here. Good luck on your baby in the oven.

Ginger

Man, I never got this either.  Stupid computers.  Email me Ginger, I'd love to host you.  PavartiDevi@gmail

 

Anyone else who is interested is welcome as well!

Pav,

I am looking to do a blog tour. My book is Presentational Skills for the Next Generation. Since it is not a novel, is it a good fit for your audience? You can see the reviews by visiting http://www.GingerMarksBooks.com/launch or skip the launch if this is read after the Amazon push.

I would like to be considered for a review.

Neat: A good review for a review copy. And you offer them a link as well. Wow!

It always surprises me when people don't take advantage of such an offer.

I'll pass on your offer to the people who have subscribed to my 15,000 Eyeballs Internet Market program.

Thanks, John

Theresa, I am interested in reviewing for you.  I'm working on expanding my review section of my blog and want to highlight indie authors as much as possible.  Send me a note.  I've looked over your catalog and am willing to review whatever you would like to have the attention brought to.  I usually post reviews on GoodReads, Amazon and my blog but can post elsewhere as well if you have another site you use.  Thanks so much!  I look forward to working with you :)

If you have a 99 cent or free ebook and would like to get the word out, please stop by my April 6 blog post and add your  information to the comments.  I will be featuring this post in my upper right sidebar and promoting it through May 8 so that visitors from the Spring Carnival Blog Hop will also have the opportunity to take advantage of the offers in addition to my regular blog traffic. 
 
Here are the instructions:
Authors, if you have a 99 cent title on Kindle, Nook or Smashwords, (or a free download somewhere) I’d love to have you list it in the comments of http://bit.ly/e5g1P2 . Here’s how:

1. Your sale must last through at least May 8.
2. Please leave a one paragraph description and no more than two links in your comment.

3. You can leave multiple books, but my spam filter only allows two links per comment so please leave additional comments if necessary. If you have several titles and formats on sale, it may be easier to steer visitors toward your web site or Amazon author page rather than to individual retail links.

4. Please use the Share icons for Facebook and Twitter if you leave a link to help spread the word to readers about this post.
 
Thanks! I hope it will lead to selling some extra copies of your titles.
 
 

No offense, Stacy, but this is one of the major hurdles for indie authors - those undercutting our work by selling books for 99 cents or making free offers.

 

Sure, you, Amanda Hocking and others sell books, but I don't think you realize the detrimental impact it has on the rest of us struggling to market our books. We price our e-books at the normal accepted market price of $2.99 to $9.99 and these offers undercut us. To compete we are forced to match those prices. Yes, free market and all, but this also adds fuel to the argument against indie authors producing quality that is worth market price.
