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.

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.

Check out fellow authors new book release, The Struggler by author Jeffrey Britsch gives readers hope, encouragement and increases faith through a 60-day devotional. Each devotional is designed to build faith, give readers insight into the daily struggle of faith in God in a world that seems to be chaotic at times.
 
As the author speaks to readers through Biblical and practical application of the Word of God, we as humans are not promised a struggle free life. As members of the human race we will face adversity, trials and challenges throughout our lifetimes, but we are not without out hope. That hope is the cross, faith in Jesus Christ and the promise of the grace of God to see us through every trial and tribulation.
 
 
Filled with Scripture, this new series will powerfully impact your life. This comes highly recommended as a devotional to increase faith and Scripture memorization. Volume I begins readers towards intimacy with God, finding strength in the powerful scriptures that invigorate weary souls.  ~ The Struggler is available at Amazon, Kindle and at Christian Bookstore

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?
