Welcome to the November 12, 2012 edition of tips and tricks for writers and authors. We have insights into book marketing, social media, book publicity and writing this week. Thank you to the contributors!
Sydney Bell presents 10 Ways to Make Your Blog More Social posted at Longhorn Leads, LLC, saying, “Having a blog is relatively easy; all you need to do is create a custom domain name and start writing and publishing posts. The tricky part of blogging is getting people to not only read what you’re writing, but also to respond to it.”
Sarah Bolme presents Three Reasons to Enter a Book Award posted at Marketing Christian Books.
Sue Collier presents Create marketing magic with energized editorial and electrified titles, part two | Self-Publishing Resources posted at Self-Publishing Resources.
David Leonhardt presents Win a free copy of The Frugal Book Promoter posted at A Ghost Writers Blog, saying, “For authors of great books that need promotion … and who have run out of both ideas and money, this blog contest is offering three free copies of Carolyn Howard-Johnson’s “The Frugal Book Promoter”.”
Paula Cappa presents The Supernatural Powers in Dreams: Psychic Reality posted at Paula Cappa, saying, “My short term goal is to keep blogging about short stories, genre, novels, my novel and characters. Long term goal, still working on this.”
Karen M. Rider presents Writers Must Get Paid; Imagine That! posted at Karen M. Rider, saying, “As a writer, your words are your bread and butter. Your goal as a writer, at any point in time, plays into the game of when you should allow your content to be published for free. Let your goal be your guide and choose wisely about whether or not to accept assignments that do and do not pay cold, hard cash.”
