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.

Title: Abduction Chronicles
By: Folarin Philip Banigbe
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
“It is in moments of trouble that we know the value of true friendships.” Folarin Philip Banigbe
.
Abduction Chronicles by Folarin Philip Banigbe relates a touching, spine-tingling, non-fiction account of his own abduction experience. Touching, this novel will captivate you as the author relates each encounter as he was abducted from his home in the middle of the night in his home country, Nigeria. 
.
He narrates the book and speaks of the events and his thoughts during the ordeal that paint a vivid picture, giving readers an inside view of the home invasion that quickly became life-threatening. Taken by thugs, forced to endure and overcome exposure to elements, lack of food and harsh weather, his abduction shares how God encountered him in his darkest moments. Triumphant, he came back from the evil of perpetrators seeking money to re-tell the truth of what really happened during his days gone missing.
.
Beginning his narrative of the moments when robbers cut into iron bars to get into the home, the author’s account is a minute-by-minute thrill ride. Readers will find themselves asking, what would I do in such a situation, faced with a Ak-47 and no weapons for defense? The author’s quick thinking throughout his abduction makes for a fast-paced and compelling read. In a unique fashion, he blends his prayers and thoughts to God, coupled with the Holy Spirit’s workings within the ordeal.
.
Author quote; "Spiritual insights into this abduction include: core values of The Full Gospel - Jesus and the salvation He brings, the Holy Ghost, the Voice of God, visions and dreams, and the Power of God to save and deliver."
.
As an added bonus, the author’s wife and daughter give their own accounts of the home invasion and days waiting for the author’s return. Intense moments are captured as the wife shares dialogue through phone calls and demands for ransom money that made each day’s dealings with Folarin’s captor’s delicate. Despite the raging emotions, Folarin’s wife gives thanks to God who gave her the peace and strength to survive the barrage of emotions a wife might have for her husband. 
.
Folarin Philip Banigbe has come out of the ordeal a better man, teaching others to help abduction victims through his foundation. A wonderful read.
.

This book is a fantastic way to tell kids…don’t go surfing if you don’t know how. ~ CBM 
.
Little Bit & Big Byte: A Day at the Beach by Craig T. Feigh is a colorfully illustrated children’s book depicting love-able characters and their pets that introduces children metaphorically to computers and the dangers of surfing the Web. Creating word pictures, namely, that the Web is much like a huge ocean, parents can use this book as an aid in educating their children about computers and the Internet.
.
Simple, fun and cute, children will make the connection to the Internet and the main parts of computers with each page. A hidden image of a bone on each page makes the book fun and interactive (secretly my favorite part). With adventure, Little Bit and his crew set out for a day of play at the beach. Little Bit Romie, the main character alongside Click, Browser (the “chip’s” pets) go to the beach with his big brother, Big Byte. Joy, his sister, Kay Board and Webster also join in at the beach to build sandcastles.
.
With little notice, trouble comes through sly characters Vi and Russ, who are looking to crash any party. The author creates a unique and creative “day at the beach” which is saved by a big wave…thankfully. Memorable and inspiring, this little book will help children understand to surf intelligently and with skilled “know how.”
.
Children and parents alike will love the illustrations, giving way for parents to teach their kids about computers. The author has presented an ingenious way to speak the dangers of surfing the Web to young children that they will enjoy.
.
This little book comes highly recommended to all parents when beginning to educate their children about computers, or when school starts children on computers.

Healing Hands, Healing Heart: The Dr. Eleanore Kue Story shares one woman’s amazing testimony as a culture changer and how God led this woman from Cameroon, Africa to the United States to become a doctor, missionary, church planter and pastor. Her story is truly remarkable, and she is a gift from God to those she meets and treats in her health clinic in South Lansing, Michigan, providing physical healing, but also to the heart, mind and soul through the preaching of the Gospel and Jesus.
.
With an amazing ministry and calling, Dr. Eleanore Kue’s health clinic has provided more than 45,000 medical appointments to over 15, 000 individuals in the 8 years it has been open. She treats the underprivileged and uninsured, the poor, single moms, drug addicts, those who are homeless, drug dealers, gang members, ex-convicts and prostitutes. Dr. Eleanore Kue is an inspiring woman who believes in ministering to the “whole” body, treating not only the physical, but the spiritual and emotional as well.
.
Intertwined in the pages is her life story, including her upbringing from a dysfunctional, nominally Christian home and the culture she was brought up in, in Africa. Her life has not been easy and three attributes have been to her benefit, as mentioned by the book’s forewording author, that have kept Dr. Kue from not growing weary in well-doing. They are: courage, tenacity and compassion. 
.
Reading this book will help the readers understand that this “perseverance” is what needs to be developed if they believe they are called to ministry. This book will delight and impress you, as this woman is one determined lady.  She truly is an inspiration and one of God’s trophies! She is a model to those who call themselves servants of God as well. Her strong work ethic and dedication to prayer, are also quite noteworthy!  And her work ethic is an inspiration to mom’s all around the world…truly amazing!
.
The book focuses on the reader, in that each chapter is designed as interactive devotional, challenging readers with discussion questions to probe into their own lives, bringing healing, forgiveness and restoration. Her book is written with a sense of discovery for the journey to one’s purpose in God, life and their world around them. With a “Survivor’s Creed” readers are encouraged to press on in God.  She gives understanding to women and encourages them to find their identity, security and freedom in Christ. She also addresses issues in life that weight us down, helps readers to identify and the book gives hope to solutions, setting a Biblical standard for marriage and relationships.
