On Twitter, there is a movement called #IndieApril, so I thought it was a good idea to import to WordPress. Independent writers are the growing force in publishing, so please take this opportunity to publicize and promote your work!
I want to offer an opportunity for all writers who follow this blog to share information on their books. It can be very difficult to generate publicity for our writing, so I thought this little effort might help. All books may be mentioned, and there is no restriction on genre. This encompasses fiction, poetry, plays, and non-fiction. If I have neglected to mention a genre, please consider it to be included.
To participate, simply give your name, your book, information about it, and where to purchase it in the comments section. Then please be willing to reblog and/or tweet this post. The more people that see it, the more publicity…

How many book marketing tips have you tried?
Probably every single one that you’ve read about, right?
What makes book marketing so tough isn’t that you run out of ideas to market your books. It’s that you have so many different plans.
Well, if you want to make it as a writer, get ready for the marathon of writing and marketing. You’ll always be doing both from now on.
To make life easier for you (or harder?), I’ve assembled a checklist of my top book marketing tips for you.
Until the end of 2nd Feb – only 99c/99p
“I should have had nothing to do with those accursed Angevins. I should have run like hell in the opposite direction.”
Giles de Soutenay can scarcely be blamed for his disappointment. Promised an heiress by Queen Eleanor, he is dismayed to discover that, although young and attractive, his bride has all the warmth of a stone effigy.
For the newly widowed Isabella, the reality of a new husband is no cause for celebration. She will do her duty but no more. She will give de Soutenay no reason to complain but he will not have her heart, for any belief in love and tenderness died during those brief years of her first marriage. However, she has reckoned without Giles’ perseverance.
After the snows of winter, spring brings hope, until the arrival of a stranger threatens Giles and Isabella’s blossoming happiness…

“Fail to plan? Then plan to fail.” What a HORRIBLE quote, but SO apt for authors who are trying to figure out their marketing strategies.
Now is the perfect time to sit down and create a 2019 marketing plan.
The problem for most of us is that marketing is such a big job.
We get bogged down in the enormity of the task and quite often push it off. It is easier to do things that we know and like, so marketing often gets delayed or even skipped altogether.
But we can overcome this.
It’s Monday Marketing time and today I thought I would do something different and discuss what NOT to do in Marketing.
If you are new to my blog, I post Marketing articles on most Mondays and if you want to check the earlier Marketing posts, you can find them here.

Hi, I would like to talk about a very painful subject for us poor virgin authors…Book marketing.
Something not many new authors know about until they are in the thick of it and then you learn by your mistakes.
Amazon Ads- These are not too bad you just need a lot of patience (Besides a kiss ass book lol) You don’t need to spend a lot of money to get impressions of your books out on Amazon so don’t spend a lot of money use a budget of $1 a day and use as many keywords as possible especially 2-3 words strung together. Look at books that are in the same genre as yours and make a list of their keywords and chuck them in as well (The more the merrier right?).
Fiver.com- Using the $5 ads in the book promotion list is again hit and miss, like everything on…

Do you need to change your digital marketing strategy?
Social media has a big problem.
Facebook is losing users due to data privacy concerns. Google+ is closing down. Twitter is becoming more political than social.
All these negative factors have and will make social media marketing far less effective.
Apart from the current issues that are concerning people about privacy and personal data use, there is a more fundamental problem with social media marketing.
If you are trying to promote your books, blog, services or you are affiliate marketing; there is an issue of intent.
