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 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."

The Coming of the Son of Man: The Sequence of Events of the End speaks of the End Time events leading up to the Second Coming of Christ. There is no better time to read this book, as the world currently is going through a global pandemic.
.
One may wonder if this is a sign of the End Times, and wonder what is next? Even those who mock God, or perhaps are Atheists, insisting there is no God, might wonder, what is going on? 
.
The author explains the sequence of events of the end times, giving readers a concise overview of the timeline that is set forth in the Word of God. With a keen understanding of the Word of God, the author’s intent is not to relate bad news, but to give hope, insight and understanding that is available in Christ. Born-again believers will find this book fascinating and a wonderful resource to the timeline of events and Biblical truth that share the long-awaited events leading up to the fast approaching return of Christ and His Second Coming.
.
With a resounding shout of triumph, this book gives the light of hope to this generation in Christ, offering Christ as an anchor for the soul. The Bride of Christ eagerly awaits the glorious celebration of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, and the fulfillment of time takes place upon the world’s stage.

God's Masterpiece: A Portrait of The Born Again Spirit by Herbert Fearman speaks of a very important subject that is not readily taught often, but this life-transforming principle showcased in John 3:3 and John 3:5 should be shouted from the mountain tops.
.
Jesus told us in John 3:3 and John 3:5 that except a man be born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God and except a man be born of water and of the Holy Spirit he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. We should all know more about this glorious new creation that's taken place inside of every Spirit-filled believer in Jesus Christ. Yet, this book gives a portrait of the new believer’s redemption and regeneration of their spirit man.
.
By mediating on God's Masterpiece, the author believes readers will gain insight into the New Testament, bringing clarity and a more rewarding experience. As the author states, “It's truly amazing when you begin to discover the things God has already given us and it's even more mind blowing to realize what he deposited inside of us when we gave our lives to His Son, Jesus.”
.
God Almighty has glorious fellowship with us right now in heavenly places that we know nothing about, but he's just beginning to pull back the curtain and give us a glimpse. The things He has done just to make sure our communion with Him will never again be broken is truly remarkable.
.
Readers will find that this book is a short and easy read filled with revelation knowledge and power. By the design of the Holy Spirit this book lets the Bible do the talking instead of giving opinions. I love it when the Scripture's breathe fresh revelation and the revelation in this book paints a lovely portrait of the born again spirit.

Hi everyone,

I’m pleased to announce the release of my western romance, Love, Lies and Redemption. Set in 1877 Nebraska, this novel blends a sensual love story with mystery and danger.


Love, Lies and Redemption

Shot and left for dead, Sam Hixton stumbles into a general store on the Nebraska prairie and collapses into the arms of Cassie Wilcox.

Cassie’s world is turned upside down when the handsome stranger drops into her life. Sam is another complication she doesn’t need: her business is dying and her trouble with the townspeople is escalating. Yet she’s determined to keep the store open — no matter what the cost.

As Sam recovers from his injuries, he hides the truth about his identity and convinces Cassie to let him work in the store. He’s attracted to her and admires her independent nature, but quickly realizes Cassie’s in way over her head. They fight their growing attraction, and Cassie questions whether she can trust her fragile heart to a mysterious stranger. Will he accept her once he knows about her troubled past?

Cassie resists Sam’s advances and represses her feelings until one fateful night when they give in to their fiery passion. Together, they work out a plan to save the store, but find their efforts are thwarted — and their lives endangered — by the locals.

Sam’s secret returns to haunt him and pulls him away just when Cassie needs him the most. Will he regain her trust when she learns the truth?

Cassie has everything invested in the store — can she save it and find true love with Sam before it’s too late?
