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.

The Forum: A Deadly Game of Wheat and Tares by Ronald Winters offers a riveting fictional account of “real world end time events, current day attitudes and directions of the spirit of the times in which we live.”
.
Barak Zonman, starts off this fast-paced thriller, blending elements of espionage with a religious and political polarization that affect the masses of population around the World. In the book, there is a conspiracy to bring all faiths into one large interfaith religion and Barak Zonman and his popular TV show – The Forum must be eliminated.
.
This begins with Zonman, the show’s founder. The Forum “is a faith oriented call-in TV show designed to let viewers question leading members of the clergy.” Controversial in nature, this show sparks debate – and hinders the worldwide current of leading all into one faith and world peace. This novel of the wheat and tares is an amazing book written to those that would seek truth in God and the true Christian faith.
.
Running for his life, Barak finds sanctuary in a church and finds himself radically changed by a baptism by water, followed by a baptism of the Spirit, as evidenced by the speaking in tongues. Highlighting this issue, the author speaks of the controversy between believers on being “born again” (either by just statement and belief and/or by receiving the infilling of the Spirit, as evidenced by speaking in tongues). This radical way of being born again and receiving the Spirit is what Apostle Paul spoke of, thus, the book sheds light on God’s way versus man’s way. Man’s way and God’s way are running a collision course to the End Times in this book that reveal an exciting plot of scenarios begun by two Prologues that concurrently blend modern-day questions and events that has been spoken of in Bible Prophecy. The author also notes that we are in the time of the Olivet Discourse that Jesus speaks of on the Mount of Olives, mentioning the time of Jesus return as near since the birth of Israel in May 1948.
.
In the back of the book the author offers his personal testimony, delivered instantly from prescription drug dependency when “he looked in the mirror” and repented of his ways. Holding fast to true repentance, the author advocates true Holy Ghost filled deliverances and that the modern-day believer should have them as a norm, instead of replaced by the Forum so to speak – the modern day church who compromises and duplicates the actual workings of the Holy Spirit by replacing them with good theology, programs and modern day mood alteration technology. He also offers observations on some relevant issues, two being backsliding and tithing. 10.0 stars out of 10.0 stars

My paranormal comedy, Beauty & the Bigfoot was just released. It's an unusual look at the legend of Bigfoot and blends the paranormal with humor, drama, and a few spicy love scenes. (If you think you know how it ends, think again!)

BEAUTY & THE BIGFOOT

Can true love exist between the species?

 

Tara’s world is anything but normal. Her father is known as the resident crackpot – just because he’s on a personal mission to catch a Sasquatch. Despite all of the “Bigfoot evidence” cluttering their house, Tara never really believed in Bigfoot – until the day her father brought him home.

 

She affectionately names her father’s prized catch ‘Joe’ and discovers there’s something oddly familiar – and erotic – about him. With a media circus descending on her father’s ranch and a showdown brewing with the local sheriff, Tara risks her life to save Joe.

 

When Tara finally succumbs to her animalistic urges, she learns that Joe is not exactly who – or what – he seems. Joe is more than a Sasquatch – he’s her soul mate!

Tending the Warrior Soul by Louis Harrison
.
In war there are traumas to the soul that are not assuaged for the warrior by even the most excellent psychological care, medical interventions, and official support programs. Tending the Warrior Soul helps to advance understanding of this soul damage, and offers support, encouragement, lessons from personal experience, counsel, challenge, and resources to those God has called to care for warriors' souls, as well as to the warriors themselves and their loved ones. 
.
"Ministry to war experienced troops begins and ends with a servant's heart. We must 'remake' our worldview, expand our theological reference points, and accommodate our civilized views about violence, cruelty, right and wrong to the uncivilized applications of war. Neither God nor His commandments change, for these are the anchor points, trustworthy and sure. ... Teaching people to sort through the reality of God while sifting through the ashes of soul, spirit, and mind burned in the consequences of war is not 'routine' business. Ministry to warriors is transformative." From Foreword, by Colonel Mike Hoyt, Chaplain, U.S. Army, Retired. 
.
Lou Harrison never dreamed of "writing a book," and was embarrassed when it was suggested. The thoughts he had been writing down during his years of ministry were for his own understanding and growth in ministry to combatants. His words, advice and insight have been tested for accuracy and usefulness through feedback from war-experienced friends, extending from young grunts to ranking line officers and chaplains.

Title: Echoes From the Past:
A Young Man’s Search for Love and Identity
By: Moboni Lewis
ISBN #978-1-62676-901-4
A CBM Book Review
9.9 out of 10.0 stars
.
Echoes From the Past: A Young Man’s Search for Love and Identity by Moboni Lewis reflects life’s paths through a Christian fiction novel based upon the scripture verse in Genesis 50:20 (paraphrased), “What the enemy meant for evil, the Lord turned around for good.”  
.
Offering readers hope in the Lord, the author presents a mixture of intrigue, true life tragedies of domestic violence and betrayal wrapped into the life and mystery of a fast-paced plot. Readers come to understand that Echoes from the past may sometimes overshadow, but with the Lord’s help, He can work all things together for good. (Romans 8:28)
.
Henry Doe finds new beginnings after being abandoned by his birth father, and sent to live with his aunt at the age of 7. Years later, after making some bad choices, Henry finds himself judged by some of the town church folk and soon becomes homeless. Bitterness overtakes him, and a life of crime and gangs suddenly looks appealing. Within this story, Henry eventually comes to his senses, finds love and identity in a new beginning in a marriage and ministry. But not before a slew of persecutions, false accusations and even a prison sentence turns his new life upside down – except for one thing – God’s hand upon his life.
.
Despite Henry’s past, this book sheds light on the hope that is available in the Lord and in His ways. The author helps others understand that the Lord does in fact work all things out for our good.
.
This book comes highly recommended to dads, sons and fathers, displaying how rejection, violence and selfish ways take their tolls upon families. With that in mind, the author writes to all the Henry Does out there who have been betrayed, rejected and mistreated by family and the church, encouraging them to find a new life in the Lord and His ways. A great read!
.
MoBoni Lewis is a wife and mother and loves to write! She resides in the United Kingdom with her family.

The Re-Creation of Planet Earth and Real Account of Life’s Beginnings by Brian Donnelly shares insight into the Earth’s age, Creation, science, evolution, the Big Bang theory and the beginning of life.  Also sharing God, Jesus and insight into Heaven, makes this a book that pits itself against any other theory other than Biblical creation, giving research, history and research.
.
The author’s main goal is to give readers the facts of evolution in a language that is easily understood by most, and to let them decide for themselves using logic, science and the Scriptures. He has written a book that causes people to think about “what” they are believing in when speaking of the thought that humans came from apes, and mentions other theories as well. His writing shows that evolution and other theories by scientists, disproves itself.
.
Beginning with Earth’s age, the author asks a poignant question. One that I think most Christians have asked: “Have you wondered why there is such a huge discrepancy regarding the age of our planet?” As scientists have claimed, the Earth’s age is 4.6 billion years, yet the Bible refers to planet Earth as only being six thousand years old. Revealing a study through the book of Genesis, the author sets the stage for the understanding that Creation is a viable theory.
.
Summarizing such events as Adam and Eve giving birth to the first generation Cain and Abel, to Noah and the Flood, the book skips along at a fast-paced, keeping readers attention. Continuing to trace the origins of the “Out of Africa” movement created by Darwin, the author propagates his attention to the details of their arguments. Analyzing, how this actually could happen without becoming overly scientific, so all of us can understand.
.
This is a great and relatively short read that directs people to look up, at God, at Jesus, describes what Heaven is like and gives them an understanding that makes sense. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wonders: Where and how did we get here? Within this, the author is courageous enough to state his mind and that he believes humans did not come from apes!  Adding some humor throughout, readers will appreciate the author’s integrity on a man’s attention and dedication and family, gives insight into the unfair spread of wealth and speaks to those who have a heart to do something.

Hamilton Saves the Fourth of July by Tawney Anderson shares the adventures of Jenny and farm life, making a fun read for children (and adults alike), bringing animals, nature and humans together – As the third book of the series of The Jenny Adventures, Jenny lives on the farm with her parents, and a cast of unforgettable farm animals. Jenny has a unique bond with these animals as they have saved her family on many occasions and vice versa.
.
It’s almost the 4th of July and Jenny wants to help the animals understand why we have the 4th of July, and that even though the fireworks scare the animals because they are so loud, she explains from a book how the United States came to be. This story will keep children (and adults) captivated by the funny antics of the animals, the cast of characters around the farm, and the fun, adventure and trials along the way, as they discover a little hummingbird named Hamilton who saves the day!
.
Fun animal facts add to this funny, inspiring and heart-warming children’s book. This is one book you will want to keep in your library for generations to come. Entertaining and witty, the author teaches our little ones the importance of Christian values, adding to the book an inspiration to be all that God has called them to be. With colorful artwork, children learn to thank God and to pray to God, they learn a little about the Indians, the 13 colonies, the British and the Revolutionary War, in a simple way.
.
Pick up her first 2 books in the series to get a better understanding of all that Jenny and the farm animals have been through ~ A Nativity Christmas and The Easter Miracle.
.
This is a fun and instructive way to teach our children why we celebrate the Fourth of July, the importance of kindness to animals and to care for their environment, and that they too play an important part in our world today!

Shepherd’s Inn: The Gift, by Dave Stokley, writes an engaging and inspiring novel during time leading up to the Christmas season at Shepherd’s Inn. Set in modern times, the author sheds light on humanity’s trials and crisis, purpose and God with the bringing together of different individuals to Shepherd’s Inn.

.

This lodge is a special place. It is a place where others find healing from the past. The author brings to life such characters that have common bonds of life-changing events that have shaped their past - betrayal, domestic violence, sickness, and death. Beginning with several characters from a narrative, the relevance of Shepherd’s Inn and how it came to be reveals this special place and those who run it. Common bonds develop over the years at Shepherd’s Inn that mend the characters together with interesting twists and turns, revealing that we all have a story.
.
Each character adds flavor to the telling of Shepherd’s Inn, drawing readers into a climatic conclusion at the Inn. These connections, events and lives, all intertwining, make for an experience that express a common theme – we all have challenges. With God and caring friendships we can move into our future, away from what has kept us bound. With hints of romance and humor, the book relates the importance of community and human kindness – as paying it forward and belonging helps readers to understand the need for God, the Father and the Son, Jesus Christ.

.

Offering a satisfying conclusion, the author has written a heart-warming and emotional read that shares God’s grace, love, hope, kindness, forgiveness, and emotional healing that brings the light of God’s love into the forefront.
.
I find this book one that brings peace, hope and serenity to the soul as it relates to the gift; it’s a message that we all need. ~ An amazing and highly recommended read!
