Welcome to the February 4, 2013 edition of tips and tricks for writers and authors. We have a great mix of posts on book marketing and writing. We hope you find some writing and marketing inspiration!
Charmaine Hammond presents Libraries Can Help Sell Books posted at Market, Promote & Sell Your Book, saying, “Libraries can help authors build their platform and sell books. Learn some of the different ways that author Charmaine Hammond has built Libraries into her book marketing plan.”
Joel Friedlander presents Book Design, Internet Marketing and the Nature of Human Consciousness posted at The Book Designer, saying, “This article discusses why signposts and other navigational aids allow us to experience reading a book or signing up for a webinar as a pleasant experience.”
Karen M. Rider presents A Writer & Her Daughters Balance the Real World with The OtherWorld of Writing posted at Karen M. Rider saying, “Time spent in the OtherWorld of Writing usually doesn’t have an immediate pay-off for us writers. And, there is no instant gratification for the child who slips unawares through the portal into our hidden world. Sometimes, though, at the twilight betwixt and between these two worlds, something magical happens and we are able to share it with our children, making them feel less like outsiders to the OtherWorld of Writing.”
Jessica Clark presents 30 Famous Authors Named Ken posted at Kenney Myers, saying, “Welcome to the first of many in my series of famous people with Ken as their first name (or a derivative like Kenneth, Kenny, or even Kenney).”
Fiona Malby presents Editing and the overuse of words – make each word count posted at F.C. Malby saying, “This is a blog post on the editing process of writing a fiction novel and how to cut out the unnecessary words. Writers tend to use too many words in places and the manuscript needs to be tightened and sharpened.”
