Welcome to the December 10, 2012 edition of tips and tricks for writers and authors. We have some great tips on writing, social media and book marketing this week, and we hope you find this edition useful!
Jeremy Biberdorf presents It Is Your Blogging Journey, You Make The Rules posted at Modest Money, saying, “There are things where there is no set blueprint that you need to follow. You are free to do what works for you and sometimes just wing it. Blogging is one of those things. There may be strategies that have worked well for others, but how you approach it is completely up to you.”
Glenda Watson Hyatt presents A Guide for the Book Lover: The Overlooked Cheerleader in Amazon Marketing Strategies posted at Do It Myself Blog saying, “Unless an author has a humongous following, simply uploading a book to Amazon means that it will most definitely be lost amidst the millions of other titles vying for book lovers’ attention and money.
The good news is that authors can do much to increase the likelihood their books will be found. This is particularly good news for indie authors who are working with a thinly worn shoestring budget.
For this reason I am excited to release Become a Raving, Cheering Book Lover: A Guide to Sharing Your Favourite Amazon Books (PDF). This guide offers 7 easy-to-implement ways (with simple and clear instructions) you can use to share your latest read with others.
The guide is absolutely free. (No email address, personal measurements or first born required!)”
Nick Daws presents Writers Working from Home: How to Easily Improve Your Focus and Increase Your Productivity posted at Nick’s Writing Blog, saying, “In this guest post, freelance jobs and careers writer Brian Jenkins sets out some top tips for writers on how to work more productively from home.”
