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.

If you want to read a book that is a hard hitting, fast paced, murder and meyhem thriller and you are a sports enthusiast, then you need to read Spring Training Murders.

An s/m Romance novel written by a submissive with 6+ years of real-life bdsm experience. There's trust, respect, mutual admiration. There is No abuse or cruelty, just affection and warmth from dominant to submissive. 'Subfrenzy' is a book about about how real dominance and true submission affect one another, in a safe relationship.

The Lubyanka Strategy by Bob Bonelli


In Bob Bonelli's new novel The Lubyanka Strategy, two veteran agents, one CIA and the other FSB, are attacked in a Moscow suburb. Heavy chatter over the Internet points to imminent terrorist activity targeting both Washington, D.C. and Moscow. The spy agencies of both the United States and the Russian Federation unite in an attempt to save innocent lives in a heart-pounding race against time. Is the attack on the agents connected to the chatter? Is there more to the chatter than impending death and destruction?  Independent contractor Michael Clark is asked by the CIA to find the answers, as he continues his personal struggle with all that he lost so many years ago. The story unfolds in modern day Moscow and reveals the warm human side of the Russian people. But the sinister plan behind the terror is shocking.


The Lubyanka Strategy is the first of a series of action thriller novels in which the main character, Michael Clark, is an older heroic figure who faces international intrigue while dealing with his own personal struggle with loss, love, faith and the drive to be part of something greater than himself.



Bob Bonelli is an accomplished business executive, innovative entrepreneur and writer.

Raised in the inner city of Brooklyn, New York, Bob earned a degree in Electrical Engineering and served our nation working for a defense contractor on a classified submarine based missile system. He went on to thirty successful years in the financial industry before returning to his engineering roots and co-founding Adsorbed Natural Gas Products, Inc. in 2011. Bob has been a guest on Fox News, Fox Business, CNBC, Bloomberg Television and on many Talk Radio programs.

Maxwell Kobina Acquah - Yefulkay -

Contemporary religious scholars and historians estimate that there are approximately 38,000 denominations in the world today. Have you ever wondered if the true church still exists today? Does it really matter to which church I belong? If the true church does exist, how can I find it?
Learn about the fascinating history of the first century church of the Bible and how it still exists today! Learn about God's true church, the origins of denominationalism and God's scheme of redemption for mankind.

In this book I have explained what the Bible says about the meaning of the word CHURCH, characteristics of Christian and Non-Christian Churches, church membership, the purpose of the church, Church Governance or management and Administration, Church Conflict and resolution etc.
This book also answers critical questions such as: what does Jehovah God really think about the religious division that exists today? Does He want unity instead?

Herodotus - the Gnome of Sofia

Against a backdrop of political change in South Eastern Europe, the story embraces disgruntled communists, cold war warriors, intrigue, deception and finally murder. Sir Arthur Cumberpot has an unspectacular career which is swiftly drawn to a close when he is appointed British Ambassador to Bulgaria. Due to some unforeseen mishaps his wife Annabel is accused of being a spy and sent home to their house in Watlington while her background is checked by MI5. Annabel is guilty of nothing, other than being the biological daughter of Jim Kilbey, Britain’s most famous spy. It seems that a jealous god has sought to visit the sins of the father upon her, but so has everyone else. She is the victim of serendipity, but also of cover ups, the duplication of thin evidence and exaggeration. But she is also heartless, treacherous, self indulgent and without shame.
