AME Blog Carnival: tips and tricks for writers and authors – August 12, 2013by: Penny
Welcome to the August 12, 2013 edition of tips and tricks for writers and authors. We’ve got some great book promotion and writing tips in this issue. Thank you to all of the contributors!
Joel Friedlander presents What J.K. Rowling and Robert Galbraith Can Teach Us About Author Platform posted at The Book Designer, saying, “Was it the complete absence of any platform for Robert Galbraith that held back sales of The Cuckoo’s Calling?”
Kimberley Grabas presents 71 Ways to Promote and Market Your Book posted at Your Writer Platform, saying, “Do you know the most powerful way to market your book? Word of mouth recommendation. It’s a free, highly credible, highly viral resource that helps to amplify your efforts to create interest and buzz about your work. And all you really need for word of mouth marketing is a book worthy of sharing, and a way to get it into the hands of the people who will spread the word. Sound simple? Well it is simple, but not necessarily easy. The devil is in the details, right? Although the concept is simple, the implementation is going to require some time and effort, especially in the beginning. However, with a good plan, you’ll soon reach a tipping point where your fans begin to market for you in numbers great enough to really impact your book sales.”
Logan Scott presents Writing Haunted House Stories — Building Atmosphere through Setting | posted at OasisMagazine.Org, saying, “All about the writing process for mainstream fiction, romance, horror, mystery and adventure”
Chrys Fey presents Rules For Writing: Don’t Use “Very” posted at Write With Fey, saying, “Sometimes “very” is the perfect word to use. However, tossing “very” in front of every verb or adjective is overkill.”
