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.

Released my most recent superhero novel, Infiltration: A Kid Sensation Novel,  two weeks ago and feel blessed that it seems to be resonating with readers.  I've never been able to get Facebook ads to work properly, so I essentially just tweeted and blogged about it - same as always. Also did Goodreads ads, but not sure how effective those are.

Five star review for Outside That Door. Take a trip back in time to the revolutionary war like Carl and Beth did unwillingly and don't know how to get back

Offering a copy free goodreads giveaway for my humorous novel, "Somewhere Upriver."
It's a novel about amphibians and herpetologists; it's about white-man Afros and Bigfoot; it's about the Queets rainforest in Olympic National Park; it's about a puff of medical marijuana; it's about salamander toxins, and how newts and pufferfish and ancient Haitian mythologies are all interwoven to a bearded biologist in the northwest corner of the U.S. - or something like that.
