1. Tips for Getting More Book Reviews
Obtaining book reviews takes a lot of patience, especially for first-time authors and those with a
small following on Social Media. What you need to do: follow reviewers on their Twitter and
Facebook posts and re-tweet or like them, follow their blogs, comment on them and get to know
these people and the book genre they prefer. And only then ask them for a review. And be
patient, as book reviewers are overwhelmed with inquiries. These are just a few. For more

2. How to Make More Money Using Your Book Manuscript
Writing a book is one thing, but earning money with it a different one. Why only focus on selling
your manuscript to publishers or to have your book posted on Amazon? There are way more
online retailers who will carry your book.
There are even more lucrative ways to use your writing:
Use your manuscript text to split it into tiny portions and write lots of short blogs / articles from the
content – along with a two sentence bio and a link to your webpage or Amazon author / sales
page. Make use of your assets! Not only your book, but using all the research you have done to
write it. SELL your stories to magazines and newspapers and earn more money than you would
with your book alone. The content you already wrote and the research you have done for your
book(s) allows you leverage your writing and at the same time to promote your books. In several
former blog posts I explained in detail how easy it is for writers to create content, such as guest
blogs and articles and sell them to magazines and newspapers or write guest blogs.
3. How to Find More Followers on GooglePlus
Your GOOGLE+ site
I should better write: your main page and your sites for EACH of your books
Google+ allows you to create up to 50 pages (comparable to blogs). Please do read this article:
http://moz.com/blog/google-plus-correlations (Google+ for higher search engine rankings)
Being on Google+ is a non-brainer and is not only giving you a much higher ranking on their
search engines, but also allows you to advertise events, such as a book launch, book signings,
Goodreads Giveaways, Kindle Countdown Deals or other campaigns, for FREE.
Showing your books cover and description as often as you want on your Google+ timeline or in
their numerous reader communities is another benefit. Plus you are allowed to create a new
Google+ page for each of your books, and to create up to 50 community pages – all for FREE.
Where else on Social Media do you get this???
Google+ info, how to create your circles: https://support.google.com/plus/answer/1047805?hl=en
Want to see who wrote about you on Google+ or posted your book there? Just type your name into the search function and all the articles will appear.

5. Freebies for Authors:
Where can you get a completely FREE author website? We are talking here not about the main
pages on these Social Media sites, we are talking about ADDITIONAL pages for an author or their
1. Google+ (up to 50 sites!)
6. WordPress.com, Blogger (Blogspot), Weebly etc.
Why on earth would any writer not use all these possibilities and showcase their book(s) to the
world??? Setting up and filling these sites can be done in an hour or two, using the description
and images from your book and your own avatar with an attractive photo of you.
