Another Marketing Strategy

Since I am in the middle of this marketing stuff, trying to get my new book (Will the Real Carolyn Keene Please Stand Up) out there, I thought I'd share my next step in that direction with my fellow SheWrites authors- Goodreads Giveaway.Having a book giveaway is a very simple way to promote your book and your name. If you aren't an author on Goodreads, do it now. Goodreads is a wonderful site for authors and readers. It's an easy way to connect with readers, bloggers, and fellow authors and is…See More

"I should probably tell people about my book pre-sale. I recommend having a presale to any self-publishing author. It allows you to put yourself higher in the sales ranking with very little effort on your part. See this blog post to she how to do it…"

"I agree with Sarah. PDF's don't transfer well and since Amazon uses mobi, that's the best but if you use their conversion feature - which I do - and you follow smashwords style guide, you should be good to go."

"Nice and spelled out, because it is very confusing for those who are new to the arena and even those of us that have been in it for a while - then, of course, it is always changing. Thanks for sharing, Brooke!"

Hi Christine - I would love to, though it would be the caveat that I might not review it....a big caveat, I know! I have some health issues that will be taking up a lot of attention this summer/fall and I'm scaling down on everything. That said, if I read and like it, I'll review it and consider it for Great New Books, which I'm a writer for.

Christine, Welcome to the novelist group. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.

We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.

I hope you’ll enjoy the group.

Meg Waite Clayton
Novelist Group Moderator
Author of The Wednesday Sisters (a nationally bestselling writing group novel) and the forthcoming The Wednesday Daughters (Random House/Ballantine)
