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: Caught in a Cycle
By: Amy B. Crowe
ISBN #978-1-4575-5152-9
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Caught in a Cycle by Amy B. Crowe tells a delightful and humorous story of a young boy named JJ and his cycle that led him to the “wrong side of the bars.” With a smile, it is my pleasure to recommend this book as the author has addressed relevant issues that children face everyday in a memorable and funny way. Filled with witty humor, readers will love Amy B. Crowe’s writing style as she combines life-lessons of always telling the truth instead of lying as JJ finds out and that bullying is never a good idea. This is a fantastic, fun and memorable children’s book that is filled with wholesome life-lessons that reflect a Christian perspective, brought to life through vivid illustrations. Children and parents alike will adore this little children’s book.
,
JJ begins by telling one little lie just to get out of being bullied by the school bully, Bo. Finding himself spouting off one lie after another just to get out of the first lie, he was finally “caught” by his mom. Explaining that his first lie was only to get out of being bullied (which seemed like a good idea at the time), JJ then realizes that each lie just led to a bigger lie; until he had weaved an unbelievable story of his talents and his dad as a policeman! Caught in a Cycle is certainly an appropriate name!
,
Cute and funny, the author weaves the innocence of little JJ with humor kids and parents alike will love that teach them that there is only one way – tell the truth, all the time. And that being a bully also bears punishment as both kids will never forget the punishment, from the “wrong side of the bars!” Read on and you will see what that means.  
,
This book comes highly recommended for Christian parents with young children that want to teach them good morals that telling lies and bullying is never acceptable behavior and that there is only one way to be, truthful and kind.
,
As an added note, this author writes with such simplicity and childlike humor, fully develops scenarios and characters that are to the point, but downright laughable … Perhaps, the book will bring back some of your own “hilarious childhood moments and memories.”
,
Highly recommended as it addresses the issues children often deal with in a funny and light manner that also relay, choices have consequences.

Title: Breaking the Silence
By: Diamante Lavendar
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Breaking the Silence by Diamante Lavendar is a touching fictional memoir written through a series of diary entries by the main character of the book, Joan Eastman. The character has bought the diary to journal her second pregnancy. Beginning with a poem written by the author, the poem sheds light on the beauty of the Lord’s keeping of you in your life and the fleeting temporal world that we live in, giving all hope for the future available in the Lord. Her book continues with fading in-and-out of memories and glimpses of the characters life, revealing horror of young innocence that was stolen and abused, Eastman’s memories of child abuse portray abuse that began at two-years-old and continued for many years. Encouraging all to not internalize abuse, the author speaks out to inspire others to break the cycle of silence that victims of abuse often endure in their suffering.
.
As the book transcends into the depths of child abuse and the wounding, the author reflects these journeys with life-lessons learned that reveal an overcoming spirit. She reveals how the Lord was there at every “winding road” that helps readers understand such issues as: anger, emotional and sexual abuse, the damage of stuffing emotions, self-esteem, hatred, perfectionism, self reflection, and so much more that offers readers hope and faith in God, offering a realization that with help from Him, they can overcome all abuse and neglect in their lives.
.
Throughout the book, many different seasons are revealed in the character’s life, displaying just how God carried the character through all the dark times. A restoration of hope and a personal relationship in the Lord  developed over the years in the character which sheds light on the fact that whether abused or not, all readers can relate to the different seasons of one’s life and look back upon their lives to see the hand of God active upon their life. This is the main theme of the book intertwined with breaking the silence of abuse that the author has creatively conveyed.
.
She also wants others to know that they are not alone. Encouraging all to look to God and that there is hope, healing and restoration in Jesus Christ. This book comes highly recommended for those that need help and encouragement in processing abuse, giving them a foundation in the Lord, and helps lead them into recovery by offering hope through Jesus Christ.

Comment by CBM Christian Book Marketing on October 23, 2017 at 5:17pm
Inconvenient Adventures by Helen Cadd is a wonderful read, one that is written from the heart and from one who has lived a long life serving the Lord in many capacities. Through such, Helen has a very unique perspective that offers attitude adjustments for life, and the inconveniences and challenges we all face. Relating this to a life centered in Christ, these attitudes prove monumental in daily perceptions, as Helen Cadd looks back on her life story and inconvenient adventures.
.
Helen’s shares from a place of experience and much biblical wisdom. She speaks of her life with Dick, her husband of 58 years and the fun they had together. Her fond memories of their children, the Christmas memories and even childhood memories bring the book to life and makes for a very interesting read. Her life adventures are a testimony to God, family and love, as they lived out many of the Commandments of the Lord (one in particular was to remember the poor).
.
As the author states, “This is not a book of ‘Do, Don’t and How To.’  It is simply stories in my life of adventures and the results of an attitude change.”  Noting that the first key to “opening your life adventures” is a change of attitude. She assures to readers that all is possible with the Lord.  
.
With such chapters as Adventures with the Piano, Adventures With Poverty, Adventures With The Trumpet, Adventures With Scriptures and Prayer and Adventures With Jon Our First Son, all in all, over 15 adventures included. You will love reading Inconvenient Adventures.
.
Leaving readers with the inspiration, “. . . attitude makes the difference; it can turn disaster into a great memory. It can turn tragedy into triumph. We can learn important lessons and even change disappointments into fun or real joy.”
.
Her testimony shares the wonderful memories, mishaps and adventures of a life well lived!  
.
This book comes highly recommended as an encouraging read, one that weaves Christian values, a life of doing and wonderful family times for those who relish their memories and love God.

The Forum: A Deadly Game of Wheat and Tares by Ronald Winters offers a riveting fictional account of “real world end time events, current day attitudes and directions of the spirit of the times in which we live.”
.
Barak Zonman, starts off this fast-paced thriller, blending elements of espionage with a religious and political polarization that affect the masses of population around the World. In the book, there is a conspiracy to bring all faiths into one large interfaith religion and Barak Zonman and his popular TV show – The Forum must be eliminated.
.
This begins with Zonman, the show’s founder. The Forum “is a faith oriented call-in TV show designed to let viewers question leading members of the clergy.” Controversial in nature, this show sparks debate – and hinders the worldwide current of leading all into one faith and world peace. This novel of the wheat and tares is an amazing book written to those that would seek truth in God and the true Christian faith.
.
Running for his life, Barak finds sanctuary in a church and finds himself radically changed by a baptism by water, followed by a baptism of the Spirit, as evidenced by the speaking in tongues. Highlighting this issue, the author speaks of the controversy between believers on being “born again” (either by just statement and belief and/or by receiving the infilling of the Spirit, as evidenced by speaking in tongues). This radical way of being born again and receiving the Spirit is what Apostle Paul spoke of, thus, the book sheds light on God’s way versus man’s way. Man’s way and God’s way are running a collision course to the End Times in this book that reveal an exciting plot of scenarios begun by two Prologues that concurrently blend modern-day questions and events that has been spoken of in Bible Prophecy. The author also notes that we are in the time of the Olivet Discourse that Jesus speaks of on the Mount of Olives, mentioning the time of Jesus return as near since the birth of Israel in May 1948.
.
In the back of the book the author offers his personal testimony, delivered instantly from prescription drug dependency when “he looked in the mirror” and repented of his ways. Holding fast to true repentance, the author advocates true Holy Ghost filled deliverances and that the modern-day believer should have them as a norm, instead of replaced by the Forum so to speak – the modern day church who compromises and duplicates the actual workings of the Holy Spirit by replacing them with good theology, programs and modern day mood alteration technology. He also offers observations on some relevant issues, two being backsliding and tithing. 10.0 stars out of 10.0 stars

My paranormal comedy, Beauty & the Bigfoot was just released. It's an unusual look at the legend of Bigfoot and blends the paranormal with humor, drama, and a few spicy love scenes. (If you think you know how it ends, think again!)

BEAUTY & THE BIGFOOT

Can true love exist between the species?

 

Tara’s world is anything but normal. Her father is known as the resident crackpot – just because he’s on a personal mission to catch a Sasquatch. Despite all of the “Bigfoot evidence” cluttering their house, Tara never really believed in Bigfoot – until the day her father brought him home.

 

She affectionately names her father’s prized catch ‘Joe’ and discovers there’s something oddly familiar – and erotic – about him. With a media circus descending on her father’s ranch and a showdown brewing with the local sheriff, Tara risks her life to save Joe.

 

When Tara finally succumbs to her animalistic urges, she learns that Joe is not exactly who – or what – he seems. Joe is more than a Sasquatch – he’s her soul mate!

Tending the Warrior Soul by Louis Harrison
.
In war there are traumas to the soul that are not assuaged for the warrior by even the most excellent psychological care, medical interventions, and official support programs. Tending the Warrior Soul helps to advance understanding of this soul damage, and offers support, encouragement, lessons from personal experience, counsel, challenge, and resources to those God has called to care for warriors' souls, as well as to the warriors themselves and their loved ones. 
.
"Ministry to war experienced troops begins and ends with a servant's heart. We must 'remake' our worldview, expand our theological reference points, and accommodate our civilized views about violence, cruelty, right and wrong to the uncivilized applications of war. Neither God nor His commandments change, for these are the anchor points, trustworthy and sure. ... Teaching people to sort through the reality of God while sifting through the ashes of soul, spirit, and mind burned in the consequences of war is not 'routine' business. Ministry to warriors is transformative." From Foreword, by Colonel Mike Hoyt, Chaplain, U.S. Army, Retired. 
.
Lou Harrison never dreamed of "writing a book," and was embarrassed when it was suggested. The thoughts he had been writing down during his years of ministry were for his own understanding and growth in ministry to combatants. His words, advice and insight have been tested for accuracy and usefulness through feedback from war-experienced friends, extending from young grunts to ranking line officers and chaplains.

Who is a Perfect Man? Who is a Perfect Woman? by Bamidele Kings is a Bible study series of Psalm 15, coupled with examples from Scripture, examples and personal experience that will encourage readers to study the Word of God and bring a closer walk God.

Title: Echoes From the Past:
A Young Man’s Search for Love and Identity
By: Moboni Lewis
ISBN #978-1-62676-901-4
A CBM Book Review
9.9 out of 10.0 stars
.
Echoes From the Past: A Young Man’s Search for Love and Identity by Moboni Lewis reflects life’s paths through a Christian fiction novel based upon the scripture verse in Genesis 50:20 (paraphrased), “What the enemy meant for evil, the Lord turned around for good.”  
.
Offering readers hope in the Lord, the author presents a mixture of intrigue, true life tragedies of domestic violence and betrayal wrapped into the life and mystery of a fast-paced plot. Readers come to understand that Echoes from the past may sometimes overshadow, but with the Lord’s help, He can work all things together for good. (Romans 8:28)
.
Henry Doe finds new beginnings after being abandoned by his birth father, and sent to live with his aunt at the age of 7. Years later, after making some bad choices, Henry finds himself judged by some of the town church folk and soon becomes homeless. Bitterness overtakes him, and a life of crime and gangs suddenly looks appealing. Within this story, Henry eventually comes to his senses, finds love and identity in a new beginning in a marriage and ministry. But not before a slew of persecutions, false accusations and even a prison sentence turns his new life upside down – except for one thing – God’s hand upon his life.
.
Despite Henry’s past, this book sheds light on the hope that is available in the Lord and in His ways. The author helps others understand that the Lord does in fact work all things out for our good.
.
This book comes highly recommended to dads, sons and fathers, displaying how rejection, violence and selfish ways take their tolls upon families. With that in mind, the author writes to all the Henry Does out there who have been betrayed, rejected and mistreated by family and the church, encouraging them to find a new life in the Lord and His ways. A great read!
.
MoBoni Lewis is a wife and mother and loves to write! She resides in the United Kingdom with her family.
