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.

Big Bang Theology: God’s Purpose for Creation
Dr. WM D’Leoni
A CBM Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0
.
Big Bang Theology: God’s Purpose for Creation by Dr. WM D’Leoni offers readers (college age and above) insight into God’s purpose for their lives. With a creative twist, the book is named, dubbed after the Evolutionist’s Big Bang, recalibrated into theBig Bang Theology. Written in Epistle form (letter format), like the Epistles in the Bible, the author, a college professor speaks to his audience in the hopes that they will find salvation and purpose for their lives. 
.
Within his read, the targeted collegial audience is just beginning their independent life and careers, as the author presents important life questions that he answers with compassion and scripture verses. Why am I here? What is my purpose? Who is God and what is a spiritual reboot? The author makes his book fun and interesting, while giving a biblical foundation to those that wonder what God’s purpose is for Creation and mankind.
.
Intertwined with faith-building guidance and Scripture, the book is easily divided into 6 chapters such as: The Purpose of Creation, Big Bang Love, Big Bang Faith, Big Bang Hope, Big Bang Reverberations and Big Bang Ruminations. The author offers a fantastic read that helps readers fully understand faith, hope, eternal life, not being conformed to the world’s standards that give sound advice to readers. The author offers a keen biblical understanding to being born again, accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior, the realities on Heaven and Hell, offering a real-life guide as to how to live life according to God’s ways, not man’s. The author writes with many years of wisdom, explaining in layman’s terms in such a way, this book will surely grab youths’ attention. For example, The Most Expensive Christmas Present, is the author’s way of speaking loud and clear to our youth about the birth of Jesus Christ and why this present is so important to them. Reading his book is like getting sound advice, in an interesting way, from a wise old grandfather.
.
For several reasons listed in the book, the author has a clear purpose in writing to his targeted audience (his past and present) collage age and young adult students. Mainly, he wants others to understand their purpose and live fully as God intended, alive to the Spirit and saved. 
.
This book comes highly recommended for not only “Big Bang Theory” fans (the author’s personal favorite TV show), but the many college age students who want to understand what their place and purpose is in all of God’s great Creation.
.
A wonderful, well-rounded, biblical read that has the potential to reach those Millennials out there for Christ without boring them to death! Well done!

Dr. Nadine A. Forrest offers a new book on the manifest blessings of God available through divine principles ~ Many Christians live a life where they try to pursue God's blessings like Charlie Brown attempting to get the football, only to have it pulled away at the last moment. The reason is they believe blessings are something they can only receive by earning God's favor by doing a list of good works of some kind.
.
In Manifest Blessings, Dr. Nadine A. Forrest shows from the Scriptures the wonderful truth that God's blessings are already in a Christian's life, and are just waiting to be discovered and manifested. Using scores of Bible references, Manifest Blessings provides a road map for uncovering the hidden treasures that exists in every person's spiritual field that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 13.
.
Dr. Nadine A. Forrest is an Apostle, teacher, and preacher whom was raised in Brooklyn, NY. As a young child, she was shy, yet very poetic and expressive. She was raised in a family of nine: six brothers and two sisters. Dr. Forrest, who is also the Senior Pastor of Bringing Back Pentecost Outreach Ministries, has preached extensively and internationally and now seeks to move into the new call of being an Author. 
.

This will be the first of many books to be written by Dr. Forrest who holds an honorary D.D. and also double Bachelors in Theology and Religious Education. Dr. Forrest's desire is that Manifest Blessings and all books to come will help to change the hearts and minds of God's people and lead them to greater discovery of what He has for us.
.

The past weekend for actress Thomasyna Tollefson has not been a pleasant one. Wasn’t a good one for Dr. Stephan Deverill, DVM either.

Not only has Stephan’s cousin Charley Ascott run off with most of Thomi’s money and a good deal of her dignity, he’s run off with Stephan’s fiancée, Aveleen Hallwell—leaving Thomi with nightmares and deep, deep regrets, and Stephan with a dilemma and a determination to beat Charley at his own game.

Plainly, there’s only one way to accomplish that—charm Thomasyna out to dinner, into an engagement . . . and ultimately marriage.

With Thomi, he would have a much better chance at meeting the terms of his grandfather’s altered will on time. For certainly she’d have no wish to be in Charley’s company again in her lifetime!

Entirely true. But then, she hasn’t any wish to be in Stephan’s either! A handsome face, sweet, sweet smile, eyes the color of a summer sky and a fascinatingly hypnotic voice that could charm a cobra up the sharp side of a butcher knife could only mean more drama and heartache!

The only drama she’s interested in now is Littleton-by-the-Sea’s Summer Benefit play; the proceeds of which will allow the family of frail seven-year-old Jaimee Shaine Kelmann to seek further treatment for her serious heart condition.

However, a riding accident and a lengthy hospital stay open fresh opportunities for Stephan to storm her defenses. His gentle, yet firm, persuasiveness, his infinite patience, besides those other obvious charms, begins to take her wall down, brick by brick. Indeed, the exasperated hospital staff and a few members of her family believe this man could be a life changing miracle for her.

Thomi’s torn between that belief herself and that one of he can’t possibly be different from her former suitors. He’s Charley’s cousin after all!

Just as she’s giving in to her Heart’s desire, tabloids begin hitting the stands, offering the world their speculations and views about Thomi’s newest relationship . . . leaking “secret” information Stephan has so far withheld from her.

These new developments threaten to interfere with Thomi’s involvement with the summer benefit play.

With her Mind and her Heart at war, her loyalties become hopelessly divided.

Should she stand with her man and declare finally to the public that she is truly irrevocably in love with him?

Or ought she to stay with the play because, after all, she’d sworn a Big Time Promise to Jaimee that she would without fail star in this production in her honor before she’d ever met Stephan?

If these things weren’t enough to scramble her brains, Thomi learns that there are other issues at stake here, more complicated than simply saving Papa Ascott’s fortune from going to the wolves.

Most assuredly, it’s a situation of damned if she gives in—damned if she does not . . .

Available at Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003CC16GU 

Kindle Edition $3.75

Also available in EPUB at Nook, Kobo, IBooks and Barnes and Noble.

The Kingsley twins’ 5th grade class has a big problem—Ralph Henry Dalton, the Biggest Loudest Braggart of All Time!

The whole class has  of his boasts, so Jerrianna schemes to bring Ralph Henry to his knees. How? By hosting an air hockey tournament in their basement, and ultimately pitting him against her wonder cat, Snowshoe Mal.

Behind her back, pessimist Jeoffrey plots Malley’s disappearance. Why? Because the stupid cat plays only if she wants to, and Ralph Henry is deadly at the game—or at least, he says he is.  This plan of Jerri’s is Doomed to being the Biggest Disaster in the History of Mankind!

Making matters worse, their moms were rivals as kids. Looks like Ralph Henry isn’t the only one needing an attitude adjustment!

Okay, Get that cat in here! Right now! One of these loudmouth braggers has to be thoroughly trounced her! Right now, Malley! Before the pizzas get here!

Here kitty, kitty, kitty!

Oh sure, doesn’t it figure . . . Malley’s disappeared without Jeoffrey’s help!

 Kindle Edition $3.75 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003CJU1VE
