Happy February! Welcome to Author Marketing Experts’ Blog Carnival. This week features posts on social media, getting published, and book marketing. Thank you to all of the contributors.

Getting Published

Erica Verrillo submitted 8 February Writing Contests – No Entry Fees posted at Publishing… And Other Forms of Insanity, saying, “February is a short month, but it does not lack for writing contests. There is a little bit of everything this month: travel writing, poetry, short fiction, journalism, and – one of my favorites – the impoverished author contest.”

social media networks

Hazel Longuet submitted The Ultimate Social Media Resources List posted at A Novel Experience, saying, “It can be confusing navigating the ever changing tide of social media channels. I’ve spent the last 2 years gathering the very best advice on social media, from some of the industry’s titans. It’s a great resource to guide me when I’m baffled, lacking inspiration or just in need of a tip or two. Today I’m going to share this resource with you…”

Book Marketing

Sarah Bolme submitted A Cautionary Tale posted at Marketing Christian Books, saying, “Humans are tactile beings. We have five senses: hearing, smelling, seeing, tasting, and touching. Good marketers know that one key to reaching people is to engage more than just one of the five human senses with your message.”
