black CATastrophy

If you love to read and you’re wondering what your next blog should be about then a book blog is the obvious first choice. Many great writers use book blogs to review and promote books they come across.

However, if you’re a novelist, then your book blog serves an additional purpose. It’s an additional opportunity to brand and market your book to followers who may one day become your customers, and form your fan base.

So how do you ensure you start off on the right foot, and make the best out of your book blog? Check out our four tips below.

1. Write About More than Your Book

One of the biggest mistake indie authors make is giving in to that drive to sell, sell, sell. There is often either a push for people to buy the books,  or read and review a free copy.
