The Book Marketing Network

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

I'd like to start a new forum where people can talk about what's working for you right now in marketing your book.

I think this will help other authors to prioritize their activities if they can find out what's working for other people. This would be especially valuable to new authors.

I've share the hottest tool that I'm using right now. And that's Twitter. As you will note on the main page of this Book Marketing Network website, both my http://www.bookmarket.com website and this network have been rising in Alexa ranks (and visits) because of my use of Twitter.

what's working for me is giving my testimony which is based on my novel Sacred Secrets of the Cedar Chest, at local churches. The book is loosely based on my personal experience dealing with a mother who was bipolar and how in the 11th hour, God healed our relationship.

I have bee commissioned to speak at several churches in Tampa Bay area where I reside. My First talk held 40 people and I was told many lives were touched by what I shared.

My advice is to think outside the box, don't just rely on social online marketing. Give back to your hometown.  Depending on what the subject is, find the venues that will receive a talk from you and allow you to sell books as well.

How many authors who are speakers have the problem of locations wanting you to fill their events, yet, they claim to have no money for your service?  I done some for free.  About my topic is substance abuse, losing my husband and daughter from the disease, I talk at halfway homes, rehabilitation centers, court-ordered programs, and have been invited twice to talk to men and women inmates in jail. I also speak at churches, libraries and schools.

No one offers to pay. It's getting depressing so that I have refused some.

well, the churches won't pay, but I do it more as ministry because the book is tied to my personal testimony. However, they do allow me to sell my books.

That's the key. I have done small event with attendees at churches, and it's amazing how they buy your books. I believe, if you know what you are talking about with your talk, your books sell.

Thanks Angela
