12 Aug

.
Many writers hide behind their computer or typewriter in sheer terror at the thought of ‘marketing’, because their skill set is writing, not selling.

The reality is that all writers need book publicity, but don’t want to become the literary equivalent of a used car salesman.  Nor can they afford to spend money for a professional publicist. The Solution for this dilemma:

Get Reviewed By High-Profile Book Bloggers

Book bloggers are high on the trust list for readers, which means they are among the most influential connections we can make. These bloggers read a large number of books, and have an audience of readers collectively amounting to millions.

Book Bloggers are an incredibly powerful source for promotional help. Author Amanda Hocking is perhaps the most visible recipient of this ‘book blogger effect’ as she describes on her own website….

    Good advice! The trick is – how to find bloggers specific to one’s genre. I write mystery/suspense and seems like everyone does romance/sci-fi/YR/fantasy/vampire/zombie these days!

      Marla, this will be answered in one of my next posts. Stay tuned : ) Just one idea: Research your competition, the other bestsellers in your genre, study who blogged about their books or wrote reviews to find names/URL’s. Goodreads, Shelfari, Wattpad could also be sources to start researching.
      Have a look at this one:

        Thanks, Doris! Looks like a good one you suggested. I have a new novel coming out hopefully by October 1 and I need to start getting all my “shelves” in a row! I’ll be watching for the next post.
