What Do You Bring to the Table?

Independent presses have a lot to offer today's aspiring authors. The slush pile is smaller and the chance for an unknown, untried author to get a contract is greater. Unlike large publishing houses, there's still very personal interaction between editors and writers. Unlike self-pubbed books, the publishing house takes care of cover art, lay-out, printing and distribution. Authors are nurtured and a bond builds between the author and publisher.

What most…

My promotion blitz is going well, sales are slowly increasing, and I’m getting a lot of email from people reading my books. All this is good. However, as one of the emails pointed out, I’m not certain what exactly is generating the increase. I’ve got a lot of blog ads running simultaneously right now at a cost of anywhere from $5.00 for two weeks to $300.00 for the same two weeks, depending on the amount of traffic the blog receives. However, I have no way of knowing which ads are generating…

Line up at a Book Fair to Get Your Share of Readers!

Are you a bookworm? Do you obsess over what is the latest book on the stands or who is the most popular author currently?  Some people are such nerds that a life without books seems dull and listless to them.  They would rather visit a book fair than visit an art gallery or watch the latest movie.  If you are one of them, don’t be disheartened as a book fair is not less grand or glamorous an event nowadays.

Book fairs are commonly held to promote books new books and increase the sale…

Taking the leap

Here I go! I just spent the most ever on a huge promotion blitz for SILENT INVASION and DROP OUT (my two best sellers).

I booked on nine different sites with a combined reach of 312,000 avid readers. These are people who actively read the blogs. My ads will feature the cover, a blurb, and the link to buy the book. The blitz will run on all sites…
