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!

Book Marketing

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.”

Writing

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”

Cheryl Rainfield presents Using Reading To Reignite Your Writing posted at Cheryl Rainfield.

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.”

Welcome to the August 5, 2013 edition of tips and tricks for writers and authors. We’ve got insights into getting published, writing, and book publicity this issue. Thank you to all of the contributors!

Book Publicity

Brian Daniel Young presents Audiobooks: Top 7 Reasons to Create an Audiobook Today posted at Business and Sports Articles Blog – Cerilene.com.

Getting Published

Susan Spann presents Paying it Forward – by Susan Spann posted at KerrySchafer.com, saying, “One of the most-overlooked benefits of publication is the chance to “pay it forward” by encouraging other writers. This anecdotal post shares a story about a recent opportunity, and urges other authors to help those following on the road to publication.”

Time to start

Social Media

Marcy Kennedy presents 7 Reasons Every Writer Needs to Be on Twitter posted at Kristen Lamb’s Blog, saying, “Twitter often gets a bad rap by people who don’t understand it, misunderstand it as full of spam and celebrity stalkers, or don’t know how to use it to its full potential to build an author platform. When used correctly, though, Twitter can be one of the best tools for meeting new readers and increasing traffic to your blog. Not to mention it’s fun!”

Writing

Jon Rhodes presents The Easiest Way To Write Unique Content | Affiliate Help posted at Affiliate Help!, saying, “This article shows you the easiest way to write in a unique way.”

Chrys Fey presents Writing About: Children posted at Write With Fey, saying, “Out of all the characters that you could create, children are the most fun to write about. No matter what age they are, 2-12 years old, boy or girl!”

Phyllis Edgerly Ring presents Search: best part of “research” posted at Leaf of the Tree.
