Promote your book outside the bookstore ~ BY ETHAN GILSDORF

 

 

attention from a reader

When it comes to promoting your book, you need to think beyond the ordinary book store reading.

Really, you should think beyond the traditional book tour. Your goal is to get your book into the hands of as many potential readers as you can. But people don’t find out about books only on the bookstore shelves anymore. There’s the Internet, and blogs, and subcultures, and niche groups, all to tap into. It’s a whole new world out there. So take advantage of it.

These are all things you can do yourself. You don’t need a publicist or a publisher’s PR person to open doors for you. Get on the phone, send out some emails, press the flesh, and get your promotional campaign rolling.

Think outside the bookstore. Bookstore readings are fun. But if you can appear at more targeted organizations related to your book, all the better. If your novel is about World War II, then send out an email blast to related book groups, Meet Ups, organizations and their various and associated conferences and hoedowns that specialize in that time period. If your book is about kids with allergies, find specialty shops, natural food stores, and parents’ groups where you can appear.

Go back to school. I’ve had a lot of success appearing at high schools, colleges, libraries, teen centers, youth groups, writing centers, and adult education centers. I offer a variety of talks – sometimes regular readings, but sometimes PowerPoint slideshows, writing workshops, “what it’s like to be a writer” Q&As, etc.

Be an expert: Any speaking engagement where you can appear as an expert in a topic related to your book is good. Same with moderating or being on a panel, or pitching yourself to local media (TV, radio, or as an op-ed contributor) to weigh in on some trending issue or news item.

Don’t just read. Book events are more fun when your event is as much a party or performance as it is a reading. Partner with musicians or fellow writers. Rent a back room of a bar, or offer prizes or discounts for anyone who attends. Ask a related local business, school program, or club what they think would attract people to your event.

Scale your presence. Sometimes you’ll be asked to speak in front of 500 souls. Sometimes your “event” is just five people sitting in a circle. Sometimes you’re given a table to sit at with a stack of your books, and you’ll need a big splashy banner, a “Meet the Author” sign, and a basket of goodies to get people to stop by.

Be prepared to present. Make preparations for the variety of appearances you’ll be wanting to make. Type up bullet-point lists of topics you want to make sure to hit during an interview or a lecture. Pack your PowerPoint with interesting images related to your memoir, novel, or idea books, and prepare a few versions: one long, one short, one for adults, one for kids. Come up with flexible plans and props for each potential situation.

Hit the Internet. For every niche topic that relates to your novel or nonfiction book — video games, Korean cooking, PTSD, New Orleans — there’s going to be leading blogs, reviews, journals, and other publications. Make sure those editors know about your book. Ask if they’d review it, or offer to write a guest post.  (A version of this article appeared at GrubStreet)

Happy Book Promoting.

New Release & Now in Paperback “Murder Among The Tombstones”

Lyon Media and Raven South Publishing Announces a New Mystery Suspense Novel Series of Kim Carter…

Murder Among The Tombstones (Book 2 – A Clara and Iris Mystery) by Authoress, Kim Carter

A Clara and Iris Mystery

When Atlanta homicide detectives are called in to investigate the murder of a nineteen-year-old girl found dumped in historic Oakland Cemetery, they immediately begin working the case. But with no leads to follow, and their case log growing larger by the day, the murder quickly grows cold.

Desperate to keep the investigation of her deceased sister going, Ginger Baines hires two novice sleuths to solve the case. Widowed, well into their seventies, and new to the world of private investigating, Clara Samples and Iris Hadley aren’t your average private eyes.
When a second body is found in a neighboring cemetery, the plot thickens. With two bodies wrapped, almost lovingly, in a soft blanket before being discarded in a cemetery, could a serial killer be on the loose?

Joined by their young apprentice Quita, Clara and Iris are determined to stop at nothing to find the killer before they can strike again. But, will their bodies be the next ones discovered among the tombstones? Available on Amazon

 

“She’s done it again!”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Jill Lucas

Once again, Kim wove a tale that kept me guessing to the very end. Thought I knew who the murderer was but I wasn’t even close. Loved getting reacquainted with Clara and Iris. Remember Det. Pitts? He’s back, too. Get this book….it’s a great read.

MURDER Among The TOMBSTONES ~  (Book 2 – A Clara and Iris Mystery) by Authoress, Kim Carter

Official Relaunch Press Release for Author, Rusty Blackwood & “Willow’s Walk”…

Official Press Release of Willow’s Walk!

 

Canadian Novelist Rusty Blackwood Announces New Release Of 5 Star Rated Romantic Fiction Novel, ‘Willow’s Walk’, Classic Romantic Fiction Set In Modern Day Context

Rusty Blackwood’s 5-star romance novel follows ‘Passions In Paris’, written in the tradition of Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ and ‘What Dreams May Come’. . . .

.

Romantic fiction author Rusty Blackwood

[Wilmington, NC, & TucsonNews, Tucson AZ]
September 27, 2016]  PR RELEASE:  Canadian Indie novelist Rusty Blackwood, author of the romantic fiction saga ‘Passions In Paris’, has announced the re-release of her newest romantic fiction novel, ‘Willow’s Walk.”  .  .  .  .

.

Her first romantic fiction book, ‘Passions in Paris: Revelations Of A Lost Diary’ is a sweeping saga written in the tradition of Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ and ‘What Dreams May Come’. It has been compared to Erich Segal’s ‘Love Story’ and Nicholas Sparks’ ‘The Notebook’.

‘Willow’s Walk’ takes Blackwood’s storytelling skills to a new level – the storyline hits home with readers as they are partially based in reality and real world situations that readers find highly relatable. The end effect of this approach is that readers can often put themselves squarely in the stories she presents. ‘Willow’s Walk’ presents a story of an Internet meeting that goes tragically wrong.

Set in the city of Ottawa, Canada in 2003, the story centers on the life and times of a woman determined to prevail at all costs, regardless of what is set before her, the result of which is certain to leave the reader reeling in its wake.

The path each person walks is entirely their own. The pitfalls along that path, as well as the way in which they are dealt with, are entirely up to the individual. But Willow Sutherland Crosby walks a far different path, and with her own agenda.

Abuse, deception, intrigue, and a never ending quest for happiness and love – will she find these, or will her blind determination be her downfall?

“I cannot express how pleased and proud I am to re-release this riveting and meaningful story to my readers,” Rusty Blackwood stated. “The ideas behind a story, whether they are based on fiction or fact, can often result in the success it finds when brought to print and released before the public’s eyes. But the basis for Willow’s Walk is one that I not only had an inside track on, one that I felt needed to be told.”

Miss Blackwood further stated, “The Internet can be a wonderful place where anything can be discovered, questions answered, and solid friendships formed and enjoyed. But it can also be a place of darkness, extreme upheaval, and endless heartache. It is my hope that Willow’s unfortunate plight will help light the way for others standing on the sadly realistic brink of possible destruction. A writer can only hope that the words they form into stories are words that both entertain and educate. I hope this can be realized in my newly modified Willow’s Walk.”

.
While in pre-release, ‘Willow’s Walk’ received a number of 5-star reviews from professional reviewers. Maria Beltran stated,
“I highly recommend this book.” Gisela Dixon said, “. . .
I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the life of a person presented in such a wonderful manner.”

‘Passions In Paris’ has also received rave reviews. Link Kula Kane said, “Passions in Paris I think stands its ground with these other powerful romantic stories like ‘The Notebook’ by Nicolas Sparks. A long kindled love, which finds its place from a romantic spark in the mind of one to a mounting real life experience between two different worlds, brought together by an ongoing wave of circumstances, doubts, mystery, and intrigue, that sets ablaze forbidden emotions on a roller coaster ride of endless desire, and surmounting obstacles, that test the strength of their determination to prevail. Miss Blackwood has a rare talent to bring this and more into the minds and hearts of those who have had the privilege to be transported into her wonderful world of storytelling.”

Reader Fred Pifer stated that ‘Passions’, ”  . . .is a fascinating book of a love story that seemed to be written with me in mind. In the book ‘Love Story’ by Erich Segal, he told of a deep abiding love story that reminds me of Cullen and Joy’s in Ms. Blackwood’s book, but the twists of intrigue and mystery that she adds keeps the reader on edge throughout.”

Other reviewers have praised ‘Passions In Paris’. Reviewer Cat Howard said, “Eternal love, finding your true soul mate, and how echoes from past lives can influence the present, this story has it all . . . ” Another Reader’s Favorite reviewer stated, “Enjoyable and exciting, this is a book for people who have romance flowing in their veins.” ‘Passions In Paris’ has a 4-star rating on Amazon.

Information on the new romantic fiction release, including a new book trailer, is available at Blackwood’s site on the ‘Willow’ page. Readers can download paperback and Kindle versions of both books now on Amazon sites worldwide.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Reading Friends!
“Lyon Book & Social Media Promotions” By, Author Catherine Lyon 🙂

“Just A Book Promoter & Author Ramblings”. . .

Hello and Welcome Friends, Visitors and Readers,

 

What a week it has been for me and my little side venture of book and social media promoting!
Well it has grown. Not complaining of course, but its only little old me running this show. . .LOL.
Awesome news this week! I have gained 2 new friends who are fantastic action/suspense/thriller writers, and they both have new books and novel series that just released on Amazon.com books. . .
I WELCOME Crime Novelist, Wayne Andrewartha and Author & Prolific Writer, Vinnie Sorce to our Book Promoting family this week!

.

Product Details   Product Details

Both e-book now available for $2.99 . . .
Wayne has a wonderful Guest Author Spotlight up already here on my book promo blog here, so I hope you’ll take the time to give it a read and learn more about him and his novel series.

Vinnie Sorce will be featured this week with his Guest Author Spotlight come the beginning of this week, so make sure you come back and learn more about him as well. They both are already receiving fantastic 5 Star Amazon Reviews for their new releases, and as I always say, that tells readers that they are worth a read.

Now the hardest part, and the most time-consuming is setting up all my clients social media accounts so readers can connect with the fine authors I have the honor of promoting. We are a like a family of friends and authors helping each other share our craft as writers to give readers books they will enjoy reading, and to give visitors here many choices of genres to pick from. Now I realize I’m just a “little fish” in the book promotions area? But what I do try to pride myself on is the Excellent Client Service I offer all my clients. They know I’m only a phone call or email away if they need help or have questions. And as Author, Vinnie Sorce said in his blog post I shared previous to this post?

Product Details

I do try to be affordable for authors. So I try to keep my costs “insanely low” as Vinnie said. LOL. Now with that said, am I perfect? NO. Do I make a mistake here or there? Sometimes, but my clients know I am efficient at correcting any they may find, or if they don’t like when adding content to their sites. I never take things personal. There always need to be room for corrective advice in order to be ‘The Best’ at what I do and provide.

But here is what sets me apart from many other Book Promoting offerings and sites out there. I try to also teach my clients how to book promote along the way, ( If they want to learn). The reasons? Well first, there are many new and first time authors who need help and direction in how to book promote. I am an author myself, I was also promised that my book would be promoted by my publishing company, but if you don’t ‘GET IT IN WRITING’ as part of your publishing agreement or contract? You won’t get any.  Your lucky if your provided a Press Release to use for promoting your book.

Product Details

Now I’m not downing publishers, but there are a lot of disillusioned first time authors out there holding the bag on doing their own book promoting. So I try to teach them the Why’s and How’s of  book promoting. Lets face it, many writers and authors hire me so they have the comfort of knowing someone is out promoting while they continue to write, live life, or just have 2 people promoting, which is always better than ONE. And if you have been a published author of many books? Than you know the tireless hours you need to put in to promote ones book. It sure does not happen over night! It takes time to build a readership and following, and that is why I promote through out social media and list my clients books on the abundant free book promo sites I can find.

Now I’ very aware of all the different types and ways of book promotions in the book promo market. That is why I continue to research all the time on low-cost or free book sites I can list my clients books. Many times you get a nice bio profile to share and more. I’m always passing on tips, articles, sites and more to my clients each week. You have to be willing to try anything in this market of book promotions to find what gets GOOD results. And I’m not hesitant to try something new at least once! LOL. That’s the name of the game “-)

Product Details

So that is just my take about book and social media promotions. I hope it helps you to learn a bit, and understand how much work, which is my “Passion,” to promote books. Have a question? Please don’t hesitate to ask in my Comment Section. I’d be happy to help. And check out my page of, “Catherine’s Tips and Advice on Book Promotions” while your here. There is some awesome stuff for you!
.

HAPPY BOOK PROMOTING!
