51 Ways to Blog as a Novelist

We all know that blogging is one of the best ways to get attention in today's Internet world. A blog is a godsend to your website, bringing it traffic, fans, and more. But you have to post regularly.

Stuck for what to blog about? Here are some tips for novelists, but the same tips can apply to writers of nonfiction, memoirs, children's books, business books, and more.

  1. Review other novels, especially from other lesser-known novelists.
  2. Write a blog post using the voice of one of your main characters.
  3. Have that main character tell some side stories not included in the novel.
  4. Write about the setting - time and/or place. Use some of the research you did to ensure that your novel was accurate.
  5. Invite your readers to review your book. Feature their testimonials on your blog.
  6. Interview some of your readers: via Q&A text or via an Internet radio show or via a teleseminar.
  7. Podcast your book, one section at a time.
  8. Write about trends in your genre.
  9. Write about your favorite novelists, especially those that write in your genre. Include their photos and a sampling of their books.

Hi everyone, I’m pleased to announce that my contemporary romance, A DECEPTIVE MATCH, was just released. This hot romance novel is set in the world of professional wrestling. Here’s the summary: A Deceptive Match Falling for the wrestler she had been assigned to interview wasn’t part of Danni’s plan, until Vinnie Valentine pinned her heart in a flash. Disgruntled with her job as the office assistant for a national sports magazine, Danni Stone impersonates a reporter to prove herself to her boss. Her assignment? Spend thirty days on the road with Vinnie Valentine, a sexy professional wrestler. Life isn’t going well for the Heavyweight Champ. Vinnie is struggling with a manipulative boss, prepping for the most important match of his career, and feuding with his arch-enemy, Thorn. The last thing he needs is a nosy reporter following him around—even if she is hot. Thrown together in close quarters, Danni can’t help falling for Vinnie, and she unwittingly becomes a key player in his title match. Their mutual attraction grows, and late one night, they give in to the lustful feelings they’ve been fighting. As their relationship deepens, Danni considers telling Vinnie her secret. But before she can confess the truth, Vinnie discovers she isn't the reporter she claims to be. Her lie threatens to ruin everything between them. Will their relationship be destroyed by her deception or will their love win out?

Those who enjoy reading novels about spiritual warfare may enjoy this new book by Yeral E. Ogando  a trilogy called The Hero Within. The story itself takes place in fictional places in New York and in Ohio.

Book one, AWARENESS, will release early 2016. Amazon has given this story an option to be published by Kindle Scout.

The deciding factor for publishing with Kindle Scout comes from votes from readers. Nominate Awareness

If You Are or Know a Parent...

Comment by Anita M Shaw on January 8, 2016 at 2:58pm

Hi! Just jumping in to introduce myself. I write children's, YA and contemporary romance of the sweeter variety and do so under separate names. My own for the kids' and YA stories and under Neenah Davis-Wilson for the romances.

I have 1 middle grade novel and two romances on Amazon at the moment, but am wondering about re-titling one of the romances. I also have a little hot pepper recipe book out there too, which is getting a new cover right now.

I find marketing and promo a little difficult since I've never been one to shout my stuff from the roof tops. Therefore my readership base is tiny for the romances and nil for the children's novel. I have a YA to come out in a couple of months.

Hope everyone's new year will be as rewarding and profitable as ever dreamed of!

SPECIAL DANGEROUS INDENTURE DECEMBER BOOK SALE!

For the entire month of December, my Medallion Press romance, Dangerous Indenture, is on sale for only $.99 across all platforms!

Dangerous Indenture is a spicy historical/mystery set in Pennsylvania Colony in the early 1700s.

Dangerous Indenture
Eager to escape her past in Ireland, Shauna Farrow signs on to become an indentured servant to Joshua Stewart, a wealthy man in Pennsylvania Colony.

But a life of servitude quickly turns to drudgery, and her hopes for starting over and creating a better life for herself are waning—until she meets her master’s roguish son, Ashton.

Shauna fights her growing attraction to Ashton, torn between propriety and acting on her emotions. But amidst their flirting, something dark stirs. Shauna soon discovers why no other servants will work for the strange Stewart family.

Stewart House has an unsavory reputation: a previous servant died there under mysterious circumstances. When another servant goes missing in the middle of the night, Shauna is convinced that a member of the family is responsible.

When Shauna’s investigation leads her too close to the truth, it’s up to Ashton to save her before time runs out.
