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.

Hamilton Saves the Fourth of July by Tawney Anderson shares the adventures of Jenny and farm life, making a fun read for children (and adults alike), bringing animals, nature and humans together – As the third book of the series of The Jenny Adventures, Jenny lives on the farm with her parents, and a cast of unforgettable farm animals. Jenny has a unique bond with these animals as they have saved her family on many occasions and vice versa.
.
It’s almost the 4th of July and Jenny wants to help the animals understand why we have the 4th of July, and that even though the fireworks scare the animals because they are so loud, she explains from a book how the United States came to be. This story will keep children (and adults) captivated by the funny antics of the animals, the cast of characters around the farm, and the fun, adventure and trials along the way, as they discover a little hummingbird named Hamilton who saves the day!
.
Fun animal facts add to this funny, inspiring and heart-warming children’s book. This is one book you will want to keep in your library for generations to come. Entertaining and witty, the author teaches our little ones the importance of Christian values, adding to the book an inspiration to be all that God has called them to be. With colorful artwork, children learn to thank God and to pray to God, they learn a little about the Indians, the 13 colonies, the British and the Revolutionary War, in a simple way.
.
Pick up her first 2 books in the series to get a better understanding of all that Jenny and the farm animals have been through ~ A Nativity Christmas and The Easter Miracle.
.
This is a fun and instructive way to teach our children why we celebrate the Fourth of July, the importance of kindness to animals and to care for their environment, and that they too play an important part in our world today!

Shepherd’s Inn: The Gift, by Dave Stokley, writes an engaging and inspiring novel during time leading up to the Christmas season at Shepherd’s Inn. Set in modern times, the author sheds light on humanity’s trials and crisis, purpose and God with the bringing together of different individuals to Shepherd’s Inn.

.

This lodge is a special place. It is a place where others find healing from the past. The author brings to life such characters that have common bonds of life-changing events that have shaped their past - betrayal, domestic violence, sickness, and death. Beginning with several characters from a narrative, the relevance of Shepherd’s Inn and how it came to be reveals this special place and those who run it. Common bonds develop over the years at Shepherd’s Inn that mend the characters together with interesting twists and turns, revealing that we all have a story.
.
Each character adds flavor to the telling of Shepherd’s Inn, drawing readers into a climatic conclusion at the Inn. These connections, events and lives, all intertwining, make for an experience that express a common theme – we all have challenges. With God and caring friendships we can move into our future, away from what has kept us bound. With hints of romance and humor, the book relates the importance of community and human kindness – as paying it forward and belonging helps readers to understand the need for God, the Father and the Son, Jesus Christ.

.

Offering a satisfying conclusion, the author has written a heart-warming and emotional read that shares God’s grace, love, hope, kindness, forgiveness, and emotional healing that brings the light of God’s love into the forefront.
.
I find this book one that brings peace, hope and serenity to the soul as it relates to the gift; it’s a message that we all need. ~ An amazing and highly recommended read!

An Untimely Birth by Alison M. Tomlinson sheds light on the corruption in the medical industry and the industry of Big Pharma, helping readers to discover another Healer; His name is Jesus.
.
In her fictional novel, a young girl experiences horrific deception. Revealing dark things from the medical world, the author intertwines an unfolding drama weaved together with time travel, deception, and the spiritual roots to modern-medicine trace back to classical Greece. It has been said that the root of all evil is the love of money. Big Pharma.  This unforgettable journey reveals the darkness and greed in the medical industry through the character’s journey from crisis to truth, redemption and healing that is found Jesus Christ.
.
Thought-provoking, and with a multi-dimensional approach, the author unfolds a mysterious sinister plot in an unlikely way (that will help readers understand some of the things going on in the medical industry), while addressing other issues such as: forgiveness, faith in Jesus through crisis and truth. Fast-paced, this book offers elements of time travel, unconditional forgiveness in Jesus, faith, and love that will have readers cheering for Beckie.
.
Beckie has betrayal on many levels at the most inopportune of times. Becky, very pregnant, discovers an awful truth. Her boyfriend has cheated on her with a prostitute, is HIV positive and may have infected Becky and their unborn baby, Daisy. Telling her this awful news while she is sick in the hospital sends Becky on a rampage. Unable to handle the grief, despair and sorrow, she sends her boyfriend Julian out of her life for good.
.
Preparing for an unwanted cesarean birth, Beckie counts back from 10 and finds herself in another place. Finding herself in a past era in Classical Greece. Filled with intrigue and winding paths, she knows it’s a dream, yet finds reality and discovers some interesting truths and deceptions prevalent in the medical industry. Strange twist and turns of events lead to a further botched time travel effort, as she awakes in year 2067 instead of 2017.
.
This is a unique read exposing some dark truths in the Big Pharma industry while encouraging readers to look to another Healer – Jesus, as their guide for healing.

Book Review - Divorce & Re-marry: Is Man’s Alternative Not God’s Plan by Anthony Onochie Akpati discusses God’s plan on the subject of marriage, divorce and re-marriage.
.
With a dual approach, his book addresses God’s original intent for man in marriage and addresses many practical conflict resolutions that offer solutions, roles and accountability to each other and the Word of God.
.
Adding that the Church today has a divorce rate over 50%, it is clear, Christians are not exempt from facing divorce. Giving the readers a Biblical platform and view, the author lays out a plan that is much different than the world’s. The world advocates divorce and re-marrying, even in a repeat fashion. As Christians and children of God, the author mentions that we live in the world, but are not of the world as the Scriptures states.
.
With honesty and integrity, the author helps people understand the causes for divorce and offers real solutions for real problems experienced by real people.
.
This is a well-balanced read that points to the Bible as the authorative source as to how to live our lives. Divorce is common, but the author warns that this is not the plan of God for married couples. He gives scriptural advice that can help people smooth out such issues as communication, agreement, submission and authority in a marriage, as well as giving a foundational read on the covenant of marriage.
.
This book comes highly recommended for couples that are in trouble and considering divorce. Pastors and marriage counselors might also consider having this read in their library to offer to clients. His perspective on accountability on each partner is practical and Biblical.

America’s Founding Fathers and the Bible ~ A must read for every Christian, Pastor, Educator and American.
 .
Contrary to the contemporary mantra that America was birthed as a secular nation, the historical evidence demonstrates that America was founded by Christians who wished to enjoy the liberty to freely express their Christian faith. Lamentably, Christians have forgotten and neglected the Christian heritage bequeathed to them by America’s Founding Fathers and have allowed secularists to disparage and deny what was given to them at such a great price.
.
America’s Founding Fathers and the Bible briefly describes a portion of America’s Christian heritage, particularly during the rise of nationalism when America was shaping its national government. During this era, the Founding Fathers affirmed both the principles and practices of the Bible. By no means exhaustive, this work demonstrates that America’s Founding Fathers clearly intended to perpetuate the Christian faith, in both private and public observances. The Founding Fathers left a legacy of publicly honoring the principles of Christianity and fully intended that succeeding generations of Americans should do the same.

His Sunrise My Sunset: A True Story of Love and Loss by Jan Hurst is written as a wonderful tribute to Steve her devoted husband and to her enduring love for him, God and to their family.
.
Endearing and captivating, Hurst goes back to their younger years, giving a glimpse into their sweet love that bloomed over 44 years. A love story that was a unique beginning that filled both their lives with hope for the future and a satisfying family. Both coming from dysfunctional backgrounds, they both felt a strong connection and safety with each other during their dating period where friendship and trust were a solid foundation. These two just loved being with each other.
.
Then one day tragedy struck as they set out on a retirement trip. She writes from her heart with the theme of sharing her great love for Steve and the life that they lived. Encouraging others that life is not guaranteed and that none of us know what tomorrow will bring, she hopes and prays that others remember to put God first. With a nice touch she ends with the original Serenity Prayer from Reinhold Niebuhr.
.
One cannot help but notice the immense love and admiration that the author had for her husband. This book is not only a testament to their enduring love, but really gives an example of how a couple can grow together, revealing that love is the bond that is unbreakable. This is such a sweet story of love, life, and her feelings going through the process of widowhood that would help anyone who has experienced such a loss to come to grips with all that is thrown at them. Unfortunately, her telling of the hospital’s protocols and procedures is a revelation of the coldness and perversity of our system. Truly, they could of asked that question first!  (You will see as you read the book.)
.
This is a highly recommended read for those that enjoy true stories, shedding light on what love is supposed to look like between a couple.  Blessings to you and your family Jan!  I would say you are lucky to have experienced such a great love!

Miracles: Your Impossible is Possible!
Gary and LeeAnne Dyck
ISBN#9781498495400
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Miracles: Your Impossible is Possible! By Gary and LeeAnne Dyck give their accounts of God doing the miraculous in their lives and in the lives of others. From a returned earring to multiplied food, from angels transporting lost items back to the authors, to real-life accounts of Heaven, this book reveals realms, miracles and that God is in the business of doing miracles. First beginning with a little background on their upbringing, both husband and wife share how God has intervened, revealing that He cares about the little things, the big things and everything in between. The point of writing such a book is so that others would understand that they can believe God for miracles. Even the impossible!
.
This truly is an amazing book, to hear of such unbelievable miraculous things happening in the everyday life of two believers (and that of other believers and churches), not only stirs great faith, but shows how good our Heavenly Father is. These true accounts all come from the eye-witness accounts of the authors. As the book continues to reveal, there are many, even in the Church, that just don’t believe in the miracles after they happen. After reading this book, one just might consider that those “kinds” of miracles only happen to select people. As readers will learn, God gives to all. They include at then end of chapters a quick prayer, simple and to the point. They insist there is no “magic” formula. It is God who does the miracles!
.
A highly recommended read for those that want to believe God for more, for the impossible and I guarantee you will read this through in one night!  
.
Get your copy of Miracles: Your Impossible is Possible! at Amazon or as a Kindle download. Be sure to visit Gary and LeeAnne Dyck at Your Impossible Is Possible for further information and some great ministry.

The Bridge from OneDayBow: 
The Complete Trilogy
By: Kathy M. Warden
ISBN#978-1512739626
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
The Bridge from OneDayBow is a fictional and modern-day parable of the Gospel. Written with the use of rhyme and poetry, the author offers an interesting “twist” that brings an understanding of the Kingdom of God versus what the world advocates.
.
Captivating, yet eye-opening, four characters are portrayed – Truth and Life versus Lies and Death that parallel Scripture, and present insight to life’s purpose. The author’s message is simple, and conveys the truth of eternity coupled with God’s absolute authority as the King of kings and Lord of lords; and His Word, that presents an opportunity to believe in the Good News.  Her hopes are to bring others to the Truth of the Word of God and to salvation in Jesus Christ alone. This is a fantastic book for young and old alike, and although fictional, depicts the battle for your soul and life’s meaningless destiny without knowing your Maker, God Himself.
.
Intertwined with scripture, Tim, the main character, knows there has just got to be more meaning to life other than collecting bobbles. He embarks on a journey of discovery to find Truth and discovers that there is much deception in his world, depending on who one listens to. He finds that there is a way that brings life, joy and much peace into one’s heart and soul (his nooma) and that this peace is not found in worldly bobbles and collecting, but journeying beyond the HereandNow. A mysterious Bridge, leads the way to finding answers. Tim discovers God’s armor as mentioned in Ephesians 6 and that he has all he needs to win the victory!
.
This book is a wonderful allegory of the salvation of the cross that is possible through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the bridge to salvation and in hopes of leading others to discover their own salvation, the author has penned an incredible adventure that reveals the truth of God’s Word.  ~ A triumphant literal accomplishment giving new life to the genre of Pilgrim’s Progress. 
.
Highly recommended for young teens to increase faith, to encourage them to put on the Armor of God and to reveal the Truth of God’s Words.
.
You can get your copy of The Bridge from OneDayBow at Amazon, in Kindle and at other fine online bookstores.
