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.

Hello, just joining here.

I write and publish both fiction and nonfiction and my narrative style is according to the tone of the book. I write word movies. My Children of The Dragon SF/vampire series is up to 8 books now, with a 9th on the way. Each novel stands alone, so that you can pick one up and read it without obligation to buy the whole set.

I also write mystery novels.

For more information about my books please visit Antellus.

I know this may sound trivial to the authors here who have written dozens of books, and have hundreds of reviews, but this is my first novel, Legend of the Mystic Knights,   I just got my first review at

I am excited and happy about it.

Ideas for promoting novel AFTER release.

Knights fighting the undead.

The world has been taken over by evil monsters spawned in hell itself. So powerful is the evil that civilization has been stuck in the medieval times for the last 1,000 years. The only hope for humankind is a page training to be a knight.

That is the premise of my novel, LEGEND OF THE MYSTIC KNIGHTS.

I did good when it first came out, but now I need ideas to keep promoting it.

Ever Need a Great 'Phree' Press Release Co.?

If the answer is "yes," consider http:/ (there are others, but they have been very good, per our experience).

Check out this one on my IndieGoGo project. It was picked up on Google, Yahoo, Bing and others within a few hours. It was published on Sunday, September 14, 2014 and already has more than 6,000 hits in one day.

Just Released! A Secret Match - hot contemporary romance



I’m pleased to announce the release of my new romance, A Secret Match. A Secret Match is a contemporary gay romance set in the world of professional wrestling. This full-length novel is available from Amber Quill Press in ebook and paperback formats. (Coming soon to Amazon and B&N.)


If gay romance isn’t your cup of tea, I also had two M/F historical romances published this spring, Wilderness Bride and Dangerous Indenture. You can read more about them on my site or their book pages.


Best wishes,

Kelli A. Wilkins

A Secret Match

Everett Kinkade is a world-famous professional wrestler and the sexy heartthrob of millions of adoring female fans. But Ev has a secret he doesn’t dare share with anyone. He’s gay.

After years of being Ev’s secret lover, Josh is tired of hiding in the shadows and wants Ev to openly acknowledge their relationship. Coming out is the last thing Ev wants and fears it will ruin his career.

One night in a moment of truth, Everett outs himself on live TV. There’s no going back, and his announcement sparks a firestorm of problems – both personally and professionally. He’s forced to come to grips with who he really is while facing down a tag team out to destroy him.

Torn between living a lie and losing the man he loves, Ev has risked everything… can he find a balance between his career and his heart?

I first introduced Cloud Runner in September of last year, but the actual work was created almost two years ago. Over time, many people have expressed enjoying the piece, but Jack Tyler (AKA: Blimprider), one of my  fellow-members on Steampunk Empire, took it one step further ...
