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.

By Faith Live Life
Terrell L. Sheppard
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
CBM Christian Book Reviews ~ Offering hope to the weary at heart and lighting the path for those whose path has become dim, find purpose, joy and love within this well-written book as the author writes concisely to the Body of Christ to empower victory over defeat
By Faith Live Life by Terrell L. Sheppard is a wonderfully encouraging book written to teach the practical application of life by faith through God’s Word.  This is the kind of book that changes people’s lives!  Based on selected scriptures, the author takes a targeted area of life and applies scripture, teaching that one will be blessed in adhering to Biblical principles that God has set forth in His Word.  The author acknowledges that each person has sorrow and happiness in life, for life is not without difficult challenges.  Unfortunately, these tragedies in life can prevent a person from seeking their destiny and purpose in God.  The author encourages each person to understand that God’s Word does provide answers, giving keen insight into how to overcome, offering spiritual perspective into each life; therefore, unfolding the mystery of the Gospel lived through past patriarchs that give us examples of how to life by faith.

I humbly welcome you into this peculiar deepening journey where words are more than what they seem.

Magic? Indeed.

Follow the Timeless Mystical adventure of six Characters as they Alchemically face the Darkest perils of the Human psyche and Search for the Truth . . .

“It is brilliant! . . . The Author had me on the first few pages and I found the entire book to be a truly inimitable literary experience. It is a study in human nature, with a bit of philosophy, spirituality, some theology, all in a wonderful mix of fiction. Their journey of discovery is not unlike the search for enlightenment. The book contains many undercurrents of the search for truth, mindfulness and being fully conscious of the present moment. I must repeat, a truly rare and distinctive presentation of a much written about topic. Highly Recommended.”

I’m sharing a bit about my latest book: You Can Write—Really! A Beginner’s Guide to Writing Fiction. If you’ve always dreamed of writing and getting published, but have no idea where or how to start—THIS is the book for you!

As an author of 95 short stories and 19 romance novels, I’m often asked: Where do you get your ideas? How do I get published? How do you write a book? What advice do you have for writers who are just starting out? Do you have any writing tips? 

One day, I started thinking about everything I’ve learned over the years, and inspiration hit me: Why not write a book on how to write? The result? You Can Write—Really! A Beginner’s Guide to Writing Fiction.

Each easy-to-read chapter is:

  • Based on my 15 years of experience as a writer, advice I’ve received over the years, and the technical “know-how” I’ve gained in writing classes and workshops.
  • Loaded with practical instruction on how to create a story, step-by-step: from getting a great idea to meeting your characters, developing a plot, and on to writing, revising, and submitting your work.
  • Filled with helpful tips all writers can use, PLUS fun writing exercises to get you motivated!

If you’re ready to get writing, order your copy here:

Hi! Just joining! I'm a newly self-published author just trying to learn the ropes. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.

Comment by Theresa M. Moore on January 16, 2015 at 12:46pm

Not sure what is going on with my books, as sales have slowed down to practically nothing. Advertising, promotions, etc. don't seem to work. The world has changed, I can't adapt fast enough and still have time to write books.

Comment by Theresa M. Moore on December 10, 2014 at 3:13am

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.
