For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
"Your life changes when you meet people." - Sterling Valentine
I want to encourage the authors and publishers on this Book Marketing Network to work together to help each other to sell more books. That's the main reason I created this network in the first place.
There are so many ways that you can help each other. For example, I wrote an article on 30 Ways to Help a Book Author You Love - http://www.bookmarket.com/loveawriter.htm. Most of those ways apply not only to your friends but also to authors helping each other.
In addition, you can do joint ventures, Amazon Bestseller Campaigns, blog tours, and more.
Please use this forum right here to list your requests for partners as well as your responses or offers to help other authors.
You'll be amazed at what you can accomplish if you work together rather than alone.
For example, I'd love to see a fiction writers co-op promotion where each novelist promotes the other members in the co-op on their blog or website or social network. Tweet about each other. Like each others' Facebook page. Do joint blog tours.
Poets can do the same thing. So can business book authors. Spiritual authors. Christian authors. Cookbook authors. Etc.
If you come up with good ideas I am interested!
I'm a georgia Children's author what is it you have in mind.
I'm happy to host interviews on my blog http://stellastargirlblog.wordpress.com/
They're in-character interviews were the main character from my 3rd novel, (A superhero called Stella Stargirl) does interviews with Main Characters from other people's novels.
Anyone wants their character interviewing just drop me a PM :)
I'd love for the main character in my humorous demon series, Demon Chaser, to be interviewed. Tiffany LaBouf is a 22-year-old Hollywood starlet who died as a result of taking a date rape drug, and was pulled from Limbo into Hell by the lecherous demon Gutrillus Canus. As you can already tell, Tiffany has quite a few stories to tell.
Sounds like a really intriguing character too. Being a former Hollywood star she'd get along (or maybe spark jealousy with ;) ) my character Stella :)
I'll pm you the info about the interviews!
I think that's an excellent idea Jack! My main character from Woe to the Rich! is a supposed right hand man to a Power Player. He's also somewhat of a computer geek, loses his house, car, wife, and picks up a secretary along the way.
A main character from a new series I'm creating is a guy that usually comes out on the losing end of his adventures, through his own mishaps.
I'd like to know more.
I love this idea and am more than willing to participate. I do book reviews on my site for no fee, all you have to do is send me a request and if I'm interested I'll let you know. If you can provide a copy of the book I'll get to it that much faster. I would love to have guest blogs and am interested in doing blog tours. I'm still working on my first novel, although I have a short story published now, so I don't need the publicity myself but am more than happy to help my fellow artists!
