A Couple Book Marketing Tips for my Blog Visitors

I wanted to share a couple good tips for authors who visit my Blog. My eyes are always open for opportunities to help you sell more books.

If you are a published author and would like an online interview on Susan Whitfield’s Blog at www.susanwhitfield.blogspot.com you can e-mail her at dwhitfield@nc.rr.com for more information.

Jo Linsdell may still be looking for guests as well. E-mail her at writersandauthors@yahoo.it.

A note regarding Amazon.com book listings…

If your book is listed with Amazon.com and you are not yet enrolled in their “Search Inside” the book program, read this message from Amazon.com;

“Submitting content for Search Inside the Book is now entirely electronic and physical book submissions are no longer accepted. For those not already uploading your books via PDF, we want to make this transition as simple as possible. Updated information is available at http://www.amazon.com/sitb-submission with links to our submission guidelines, instructions on how to request your PDF upload account (if you do not already have one) and contact information to address any outstanding issues related to Search Inside.”

This program is free for authors and definitely increases your chance of selling books.

Have a tip of your own? Please include it in the comments section below. Thank you!

Ah, yes... marketing tips! Any and all suggestions or ideas welcome. You never know what will work and as a new author, I'll try anything once.

The funny thing is that I remember a writing teacher saying - 3 or 4 years ago - that she spends more time promoting her books than she did writing them in the first place.

I am quickly realizzing that the teacher wasn't kidding!

Cheers, Jill
