In case you missed my last few posts on book marketing, I’ve collected them for you here. NOW is a great time to get your act together for the holidays, the week after, and the first few weeks of January, when people have gift cards, new Kindles and iPads, eReaders of all kinds, and time to spend reading your books! Historically, even February can be THE best time for authors to sell books, according to my publisher, Booktrope.
I wrote two book marketing posts here on my blog, another for IndieReader.com which Huffington Post picked up! I share them below, and all are practical with lots of links. If you have any questions at all, hit me up here. I’m happy to help. Good luck!
ON HUFFINGTON POST via INDIE READER
where I give you four practical book marketing tips on how to:

HERE ON MY BLOG
Where I give you specific ideas on:
- social media,
- newsletters/email marketing,
- and advertising with links to take action right now.
Go there next.
Where I review:
- promotional tools,
- street teams,
- and blog tours
Meanwhile, figure out which posts you want to share for the rest of the month for #MondayBlogs. Just a reminder, no book promo for #MondayBlogs — the goal is to share your writing and increase traffic to your website, NOT promote your books (which you can do with all the tools I just gave you!).
