I'm working on writing the first book in a promotional series I've been planning for some time. One of the things I want to do, is include thoughts, suggestions and experiences from authors :) I bet you have some awesome promo ideas and would like to know if you would like to provide a quote. I think that offers more varied info for the authors who read the book and also gives me a chance to give exposure to some friends :)
In return for a quote, I will include your name, website address, names of a couple of books. If there is anything else you'd like to list, I'm willing to consider it :) It should be good exposure for you -- that's my goal anyway. This is the first book in the series and it will include a lot of promotional basics.
I'm creating a insert on the pages and they are labeled -
Promotional Professions Share Their Tips.
I'm not asking for your deep dark secrets, but wouldn't turn them down :) The idea is to pick one promotional avenue that is unique to you or that you found very successful and to give me a paragraph or two about the idea, how it works and why you recommend it.
The topics I still need include:
Developing a Marketing Mind
Elements of Your Book – would like to hear from another publisher
Do You Need a Publicist
Build and Use a Press Kit
Write and Distribute Press Releases
Increase Your Credibility as An Author – Write and Distribute Free Articles
Building a Brand for You and Your Books
Working With Bookstores
The book could be a good way to expose you and your work to a different audience. If you're interested, feel free to ask questions :)
