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,

Today I’m sharing a look at my new Medallion Press historical western, LIES, LOVE & REDEMPTION. This full-length novel is set on the Nebraska prairie in 1877 and blends a steamy romance with mystery, and danger.

Here’s the summary:

Lies, Love & Redemption

Shot and left for dead, Sam Hixton stumbles into a general store on the Nebraska prairie and collapses into the arms of Cassie Wilcox.

Cassie’s world is turned upside down when the handsome stranger drops into her life. Sam is another complication she doesn’t need: her business is dying and her trouble with the townspeople is escalating. Yet she’s determined to keep the store open — no matter what the cost.

As Sam recovers from his injuries, he hides the truth about his identity and convinces Cassie to let him work in the store. He’s attracted to her and admires her independent nature but quickly realizes Cassie’s in way over her head. They fight their growing attraction, and Cassie questions whether she can trust her fragile heart to a mysterious stranger. Will he accept her once he knows about her troubled past?

Cassie resists Sam’s advances and represses her feelings until one fateful night when they give in to their fiery passion. Together, they work out a plan to save the store but find their efforts are thwarted—and their lives endangered—by the locals.

Sam’s secret returns to haunt him and pulls him away just when Cassie needs him the most. Will he regain her trust when she learns the truth? Cassie has everything invested in the store—can she save it and find true love with Sam before it’s too late?

Cole’s Perfect Puppy, Perfect Puppy Series Book One
Frances M. Crossno
ISBN#978-1506-901-68-8
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
 
Cole’s Perfect Puppy by Frances M. Crossno is Book One of the Perfect Puppy series. Written for young readers, (ages 7-12), this book teaches core Christian values through a delightful, compassionate and sometimes humorous storyline that parents will love. Cole and Caleb are brothers. Their parents are photographers for a world geographic magazine, thus they live with their Uncle Bobby. Cole, the main character, desperately wants a puppy for Christmas. He finds the perfect puppy, but finds out along the way that hard work, treating others right and loving your neighbor as yourself are more important than his own wants.
 
Chapter one begins as Cole finds and falls in love with the perfect puppy (Scarlet), which is a golden retriever that he finds in a mall pet store. Packed with action, the little puppy escapes from the pet store and after a wild chase, young Cole and the mall security guard finally catch up with the fast pup.  Christmas morning comes and Cole is elated to find a “moving” present under the treeTo his utter shock, his Uncle Bobby has gotten him a quite a different present. One he was not expecting! His little brother Caleb can’t stop laughing as Cole finds him on the floor in an unstoppable belly roll. (You’ll have to read the story to find out what the pet was.) The story goes on from there as lessons are learned by the characters. The author gives help and hope from a Christian perspective that relate to life’s sometimes disappointing circumstances that can be overcome.
 
This book comes highly recommended (and is an award winning book) that offers clean and wholesome reading for children and preteen readers. Themed with a simple storyline that is encouraging, innocent, well-written and sheds light on the Jesus, salvation and the scripture, “Give and it will be given unto you . . .” parents will appreciate this adorable book. The humor is much appreciated, as well as the author asking the question, “What would Jesus do?” Thus leaving room open for discussion. A wonderful story that teaches some valuable life lessons!  
 
*This book would be a great gift for the Christmas season, but is recommended for any time of the year.

Coming Soon, New Book Release ~ Christian author Rashad Gibson releases, The Deception of Eloquence, a much-needed read for today’s Church and the seasons to come. 

Speaking on such topics as signs and wonders mentioned in the Gospels and the highly controversial protest of what some call “Cessationism” within the Church. The author examines Old and New Testaments with keen insight that brings to light the truth of the Scriptures that will challenge your thinking in regards to signs, wonders, healing and deliverance. The author also sheds light on doctrinal error and apostasy within the Church in regards to beliefs, false teachings, signs and wonders, that brings clarity and increased faith that the signs and wonders are for today.

Rashad Gibson’s new book release, The Deception of Eloquence will be soon available at Amazon, in Kindle and at other fine online bookstores.

Ever been disappointed with the casting selection when your favorite book is made into a movie? I would like to invite authors and book lovers to check out a site where you can "cast" your favorite books. Maybe together, we can influence Hollywood to make the right movie adaptations.

Oxana Eliahu shares her incredible autobiography in her book, The Destination. With dreams of making it to America to find wealth and success, her story is captivating. Born in Leningrad, Russia (now Saint Petersburg), Oxana was a Russian born Jew. Confused about her identity as a Jew, Oxana at one time became a devout Communist, which was the expected norm within Russia. Growing up in a Communist country, as the reader will experience, was not a walk in the park. Some days they had to wait in long lines for hours just to get a few bananas, some berries and some decent clothes. In regards to the subject of religion, Oxana wasbrought up in a secular atmosphere where there was no talk of God in her household. Believing in evolution, her opinion was that people who trusted in God were primitive. Her only exposure to God was through old books and pictures she saw in museums. God in His sovereignty reveals His unending love for Oxana and that becomes an unforgettable journey of redemption to her God-given destiny.

Then in the 80’s Jews were beginning to be released from Russia. She found herself in Italy as a refugee, seeking a country, but no country would have her. Russia considered her a traitor and Italy would not allow her to work or gain citizenship. Her Visa to America was denied and she found herself hopelessly lost with not enough money to survive. Her story is incredible, filled with anticipation, as she describes her experiences, the persecution, her resolve through the doubt and the heartbreak to The Destination, and how she was once a Russian citizen, a Jew, now without a country or place to call “home.”
You may get your copy of The Destination at Amazon and in Kindle. Be sure to visit the author at oxanasite.com.

New Gay Romance

KILLER IN WOLF’S CLOTHING

A super aggressive Alpha male, a serial killer, and a visit to a kinky sex club… What has Larry gotten himself into?

When Larry learns that his boyfriend Greg changes into another man during the full moon, he has a hard time accepting it—until he meets Deke, Greg’s alternate Alpha personality.

Deke doesn’t play nice and has no time for games. He only wants two things—to get laid and to get revenge against the arsonist who murdered his friends. Finally free from Greg’s restraints, Deke is ready for action, and Larry is more than willing to submit to Deke’s needs.

Together, Larry and Deke set out to find the killer. Their hunt takes them to an all-night Alpha sex club where things heat up for the two of them. But when Larry unwittingly falls into the clutches of the murderer, it’s up to Deke—and Greg—to save him before it’s too late.
