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.

Customer Review: The cover showing a single reptilian eye intrigued me, and so I began to read.

People often find themselves in sexual or emotional positions and/or situations they never saw coming. By the time they realize what is happening it might be too late - they might find themselves sexual or emotional victims and in most cases scarred for life if fortunate not to lose it entirely.

It is important to know that your sexual or emotional disposition has its own language which you might be unaware of. All that is required to trigger your sexual or emotional urges is the right person or the right situation who speaks the language your body actually understands, which you might be totally oblivious to.

If you want to reduce your chances of being caught unawares emotionally or sexually, the answer is hidden in the Proverbs 7 story of the Bible which this book attempts to unravel.

“In the context of Proverbs 7, you are your barometer!”

I’m sharing news about my latest release, More Than  I Bargained For. This 4,500 word mini-mystery blends offbeat humor with the paranormal. You never know what you’ll find at an estate sale…

More Than I Bargained For

A Paranormal Mini-Mystery

Katie doesn’t like going to estate sales. Why? Because she sees dead people.

When Katie reluctantly attends an estate sale with her friend Diane, she gets more than she bargained for. The deceased former owner of the house, Grace, realizes that Katie can communicate with her, and she has a lot to say.

As Katie pretends to shop, Grace tells her the story of how she was murdered—and reveals that her killer is still in the house.

It’s up to Katie to uncover the murder weapon and get it to the police… before time runs out.

Title: Killing Greatness:
A Story About a Bully
By: Tronell Walker
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Tronell Walker, in her latest release, Killing Greatness: A Story About a Bully, speaks to bring encouragement to readers with an underlying theme of encouragement and Biblical principles to help face life’s bullies. She also speaks on current issues facing America, offering hope to many. She speaks frankly and candidly, yet with an overtone of love, tact, wisdom, and gentleness. Her own life reflects one who has chosen to remain steadfast, trusting in God through the storms of life. She gives readers the insight and courage to face their “bullies” in life with confidence, trusting in God through their trials.  
.
The goal for this book is to enlighten, encourage, and inspire readers into a firm resolve despite circumstances. She covers such subjects as: racism, the current political climate, advocates for the LGBT community, as well as the disabled. With a blend of historical and well-researched facts, along with Scripture, the reader is free to disagree or agree, regardless. 
.
Tronell Walker’s desire and purpose in this read is to shed light onto these subjects, bringing the social change necessary according to Christian principles of love and mercy. Her hopes are that others will learn how to love and accept each other, individually and corporately, regardless of race, social status, or capabilities; in this way, honoring the Two Greatest Commandments, which is to love God first and to love your neighbors as yourself.
.
This is a wonderful and highly encouraging read that presents a perspective of wisdom and common sense, offering some solutions that can be used to face a bully (a.k.a. today’s societal dilemmas).

The Mindrulers is an award-winning 3-book series by Steve Pillinger, a multi-published author, Bible translator, history buff, and linguist.
.
In Book 1 of this epic Christian suspense saga (The Mindruler), lives collide in a grand battle taking place on another world. A student, a lecturer, a web designer and a retired teacher are forever changed when they find themselves in an unknown reality. In this alien place they are drawn into a deadly battle against the evil Mindruler and his minions. These overlords control people’s thoughts, thereby governing their every move and making them slaves through this ultimate invasion of people’s psyche and self-will. Freedom is at stake and reality will be forever altered if the Mindrulers succeed.  
.
Imagine waking up and finding yourself in another reality, another paradigm, one you don’t know how to escape from! Fantastically written, the book unfolds the characters’ daily lives, carefully developing each of them in a way that draws readers in and keeps them on edge, glued to the page, wondering what happens next, as these four individuals discover the strange and confusing new reality of an alien world. Long-awaited prophecy is being fulfilled in them, though they struggle to believe this at first. But gradually they discover that mindbending is real, and find themselves embroiled in medieval battles with swords and armor. Yet victory awaits them as they learn to rely on One whose power is greater than the Mindruler, despite his use of a nation’s resources together with spiritual and mental oppression to achieve his goals.
.
Guided by a brilliant writer, one will find oneself engaged along with the characters in this epic conflict on a faraway world that holds deep, dark secrets. Reluctantly to begin with, these very ordinary people from Earth learn to accept their role as “Restorers of the Way”; and as they travel from crisis to crisis, they begin to grow into the true Restorers they are intended to be. But they soon realize that the weapons of their warfare are not those one would normally expect. Special ‘instruments’ help them with their task, and they discover that the only way out is to go through! The author has included wonderful maps to illustrate the journeys that make up this grand adventure.
.
This is a well thought-out and fantastically creative book, surely a movie in the making! It awakens fantasy and portrays the age-old dragon’s attempts to steal, kill and destroy. Christians understand that this spiritual battle is real: the author has presented a breathtaking and harrowing look inside prevalent evil, and created a masterpiece of fiction that takes readers to an imaginary world that is both similar and unique, like and yet unlike our own world.

Highly recommended for young men and women who love Christian fantasy fiction and adventure within a truly epic and heroic saga, intertwining spiritual battles of good versus evil.

Magnificently done and highly entertaining! You may get your copy of The Mindrulers at Amazon

Let’s Discover Your Spiritual Gifts by Pastor G. Victor Morrisey Jr. has been written to help others in the body of Christ discover their place in the Kingdom of God through the realization of their spiritual gifts as spoken of in the Bible. Readers will come to know purpose as they understand that they are called, chosen, equipped, and have everything they need from God. This is a comprehensive instructional guide that breaks down this complex subject on spiritual gifts, offering an easy-to-read teaching on the many gifts from the Holy Spirit that will enrich one’s service in the Kingdom, giving great understanding of their own personal spiritual gifts, and how to use them.
.
The author notes that spiritual gifts are not for you, but a service to the body of Christ. With this in mind, Pastor G. Morrisey guides readers through a step-by-step and practical insight of spiritual gifts given by the Holy Spirit. Believers will come to understand their own spiritual gifts, as they are taught each gifts’ functionality, along with Who gives these gifts. By building on the spiritual gifts listed in Scripture, the author also speaks on the authority of Paul the Apostle’s statement in 1 Corinthians 12:1, “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.” He stands on that statement by Paul. At the end of each chapter, Pastor Morrisey offers a short quiz to personalize the chapter. Each chapter is concise, offering insight and sound doctrine.
.
Invaluable, and inseparable from the Word of God, spiritual gifts will move one forward in the flow of the Kingdom of God. Each believer has various gifts that are given by the Holy Spirit. As an important part of the body of Christ, each believer should stive to understand their gifts and talents to use them accordingly as a servant and as an instrument to the body of believers, as well as to those around them. This is a wonderful and important book to come up higher in one’s walk with God and to learn to be used mightily of God.
.
This book comes highly recommended for new or mature believers alike who would like to become the least in the Kingdom of God by becoming “a servant to all."

Born out of the pandemic, this book is a response to the people who may feel discouraged, are uncertain of what to do, and are seeking direction.
.
This is a comprehensive book on how to pray, especially when things seem dim around us. It is a reminder that God has a great calling for you, and the circumstances you see are only illusions that may limit your faith.
.
Dr. Sang Sur, a Christian pastor who is also called to the marketplace, teaches you how to pray. In this book, you will learn:
.
- Prayer is a conversation with God that only requires your trust in Him

- Results of prayers including supernatural provisions and direction

- How to speak to and hear from God with examples for application

- How and when to pray, including fasting and praying for others
.
God has called you to something greater, and it can only be accomplished through prayer.
