Valuable Tips From a Bestseller Author

08 Mar

Christine Nolfi explains in this interview:  “I will release the paperback version of Tree of Everlasting Knowledge a week after the eBook goes live. All of my upcoming novels will probably appear in tandem – eBook and paperback – to ensure a wider readership and allow for submission to national and international contests.”

“Every time a book blog prints a positive review or invites me to write a post there’s a surge in sales. Not that I’m focused on short-term results. I write contemporary fiction bordering on literary and strive, with every book released, to expand a loyal readership. As any financially secure novelist will tell you, it’s all about building a backlist. I’ll release my third novel, Second Chance Grill, in April.”

“Social networking is an important driver of sales. I believe firmly in Good Author Karma and try to give back every day. Other authors will help you succeed if you do the same for them on Twitter, GoodReads, Facebook, Google+ and your blog.”
“One caveat: As your readership and following grow, social media can get out of hand. Limit your exposure. Know that you can’t respond to every post that mentions you. Always respond to your readers, of course, but fiercely guard your writing hours. You must continue to produce great books or readers will forget you.”
