Book marketing for Indie writers

The curious incident of the dog in the nighttime book cover

Once again, I’ve plunged into the world of book marketing to try to learn something new that might help my books reach the readers they were written for. In my wild and wacky journeys I’ve found quite a few good websites and I thought it might be good Karma to share them with you!

Here’s a good one, enjoy!  Just Publishing Advice.com

Book promotion: It’s better late than never!

I’m playing catch-up with the promotion of my latest book, It’s a stony road through hell, and I’m making some changes to my normal promoting system this time around. I included the book on my Chapter One page and my Novels page, but I decided to not include it on my Characters page.

Shameless book promotion!

I had to think long and hard about this, but I finally decided that my third novel wouldn’t be a good fit for that web page. A major reason for this is that It’s a stony road through hell is my first horror novel. Lots of bad things happen in the story, people die, so I thought maybe it would be better if readers didn’t get too attached to the characters. Another reason is that the story very heavily focuses on the main character, Jina, and her journey through hell. There just isn’t a whole lot of other characters in this book. And the last reason is because this is an action focused book not a character focused book, so I thought it would be a little awkward to write character bios for this story.

Now all I have to do is get this baby on Goodreads, and my first wave of book promotion should be done!

 

Writers and freebies are best friends!

I love getting free stuff! Free cookies from my local bakery. Free donuts from my local donut shop (Hmm, maybe I should shop at those two a little less.) Free shampoo samples from my local hair salon. The best things in life are free. And of course, the very best free thing is books!

Why do you think writers love libraries so much. It’s because a library is a place a writer can go to be surrounded by books that are totally and completely free! They can take books home by the bucket load and not pay a dime.

its-a-stony-road-through-hell-coverIn honor of free books and all their joys, I am happy to announce that my latest book “It’s a stony road through hell” will be available on Amazon for free starting March 11th through March 15th.
